Description of problem:
1. Executed openstack-demo-install
2. After successful completion of above command accessed http://localhost/dashboard
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/httpd from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .

*****  Plugin connect_ports (85.9 confidence) suggests  **********************

If you want to allow /usr/sbin/httpd to connect to network port 8774
Then you need to modify the port type.
# semanage port -a -t PORT_TYPE -p tcp 8774
    where PORT_TYPE is one of the following: dns_port_t, http_port_t, kerberos_port_t, ocsp_port_t.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (7.33 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow system to run with NIS
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'nis_enabled' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
setsebool -P nis_enabled 1

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (7.33 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow HTTPD scripts and modules to connect to the network using TCP.
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'httpd_can_network_connect' boolean.
You can read 'httpd_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1

*****  Plugin catchall (1.35 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that httpd should be allowed name_connect access on the  tcp_socket 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 httpd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2013-04-04 11:51:48 UTC
Why is apache trying to connect to 8774?

Comment 2 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2013-04-04 12:21:23 UTC
# osapi_compute_listen_port=8774

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2013-04-04 21:18:19 UTC
Looks like we need a new defition for this port.
