Description Kamal Maiti 2011-09-01 06:02:45 UTC
Description of problem:

It's missing iptables config after using kickstart build for RHEL 5.7

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Installing RHEL 5.7 using kickstart

How reproducible:

The iptables config file is missing after completing the installation while customer uses following options at kickstart file :

. . . .
firewall --enabled --port=22:tcp
## open Firewall Ports for TSM
firewall --enabled --port=1500:tcp
firewall --enabled --port=1501:tcp
firewall --enabled --port=1502:tcp

authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
selinux --enforcing

. . . . 
. . . . 

Note that he excluded package system-config-securitylevel-tui here. And I have just mentioned important fireall related options from their kickstart file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As described above.
2. Also when they specify "selinux --permissive" in the command section, but the machines comes up in enforcing mode. This may be another issue. 
Actual results:

It's missing iptables config after using kickstart build for RHEL 5.7

Expected results:

Iptables config file will be present.

Additional info:

When they take out line "-system-config-securitylevel-tui" from kickstart file, it works as expected. In their own words :

"I have identified the problem. We are excluding system-config-securitylevel-tui in our packages list. When I take out the "-system-config-securitylevel-tui" line, the firewall & selinux commands are no longer ignored. I consider this to be a bug."

For more information we can check case#00517881 at sfdc.

*** Also component "system-config-securitylevel-tui" should be listed in our bugzilla component list.

This is an installation issue, therefore I am assigning this to anaconda.

There is no component system-config-securitylevel-tui, because system-config-securitylevel-tui is a sub package of the component system-config-securitylevel.

Thanks Thomas.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2011-09-05 19:38:29 UTC
anaconda should enforce the installation of system-config-firewall-tui regardless of what you do in your kickstart file.  Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report so we can get some more context.  Thanks.
