Description Jeff Layton 2012-08-22 08:22:41 EDT
The following was preventing ctdb from starting with selinux in enforcing mode:

Also, fwiw -- it might be nice to fix the instructions that sealert prints to work around the problem to create "mypol" files /tmp or something. It's not clear from those instructions that they create files in the cwd. People who run them end up with "mypol.*" littering random places in the filesystem.


# sealert -l 6cdd7130-de59-4be1-b686-68cd3aece37a
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ctdbd from unlink access on the sock_file ctdb.socket.

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

If you believe that ctdbd should be allowed unlink access on the ctdb.socket sock_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 ctdbd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-09-17 12:45:19 EDT
This looks strange, you have a ctdb.socket that was created by a user and then ctdbd tries to delete it, did you run this by hand and then run it as a service? 

IE If you delete to sock_file, does everythin work correctly and continue to.
Comment 2 Jeff Layton 2012-09-24 06:40:55 EDT
That must have been what it was. I had some problems getting it to start up, so I started the daemon by hand a few times before running it under systemd. If there's no socket to begin with, it works fine.

I'll close this as NOTABUG...sorry for the noise!
