:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'search' accesses on the directory /var/lib/mysql.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that python2.7 should be allowed search access on the mysql directory by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep glance-registry /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-04-30 20:14:16 UTC
Is glance_registry supposed to use a mysql database?

Comment 2 slitherxcamel 2012-04-30 20:21:12 UTC
(In reply to comment #1)
> Is glance_registry supposed to use a mysql database?

I'm pretty sure that in the new version of open-stack (which is what I was using to make this bug repeatable) glance is supposed to use a mysql db.  It prompted me to set one up in the setup script for glance and the instructions are verbatim from the fedora wiki for f17 with openstack.
