Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 805229
rgmanager & selinux & vm services with path parameter
Last modified: 2015-09-10 01:44:10 EDT
Description of problem:
rgmanager can't run KVM virtual machine if:
1. selinux is on
2. service is definied as:
<vm name="app1" path="/srv/shared/vm" />
3. /srv/shared is gfs2 fs
1. rgmanager uses /usr/share/cluster/vm.sh to start kvm
2. path is used then vm.sh uses:
virsh create /srv/shared/vm/app1.xml
3. But virsh generate:
error: Failed to open file '/srv/shared/vm/app1.xml': Permission denied
4. And vm is not started.
Of course "virsh create /srv/shared/vm/app1.xml" is working from shell.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
/var/log/audit is empty
Is auditd running?
$ service auditd status
Does it work in permissive mode?
$ setenforce 0
If yes, then please execute
$ semodule -DB
re-test it and run
$ ausearch -m avc -ts recent
audit.log is empty. It was very strange for me.
If SeLINUX is off, vm is created without any problem!
I had modified vm.sh and created extra log file for "virsh create". Then I captured "error: Failed to open file '/srv/shared/vm/app1.xml': Permission denied"
This problem was at production cluster and I can't easly turn on selinux, now.
Of course if you do not use path argument, then vm.sh will use "virsh start". "virsh start" is working correctly. Only "virsh create" generates error.
What is your version of policy?
could we test it?
selinux-policy-targeted.noarch-3.7.19-126.el6_2.10 (and full upgrade)
IMHO I am providing the requested information for you... Please, escalate this bug.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Is this still a problem? I am doubtful there is anything to be done to fix this in the resource-agents package.
I can´t reproduce this problem in RHEL6.7.
Please feel free to reopen the bug in case it is still an issue.
