Description John Bradshaw 2012-05-04 09:19:26 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux has blocked asterisk from accessing a file.  SELinux troubleshooter information below.

This is a fresh installation of asterisk - no configuration or customisation has been performed as yet.  Only thing I've done since installation was "service asterisk start".

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

How reproducible:
Always.  Deny message in audit.log is approx 1 second after asterisk service start message.

type=SERVICE_START msg=audit(1336121106.636:84): pid=0 uid=0 auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295 subj=system_u:system_r:init_t:s0 msg=' comm="asterisk" exe="/bin/systemd" hostname=? addr=? terminal=? res=success'

type=AVC msg=audit(1336121107.677:85): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=3016 comm="asterisk" name="unix" dev="proc" ino=4026532001 context=system_u:system_r:asterisk_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:proc_net_t:s0 tclass=file

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install asterisk RPM via yum
2. service asterisk start
3. check audit.log or SELinux troubleshooter
Actual results:
SELinux is preventing asterisk from read access on the file unix.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that asterisk should be allowed read access on the unix file 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 asterisk /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
