Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The broker and management console both require the httpd_execmem SELinux Boolean to be enabled, but this was missing from the installation script. With this fix, the installation script was updated to correctly enable httpd_execmem for new installations. The oo-accept-broker command has also been updated to inform administrators if this setting is missing on an existing installation.

Description Miciah Dashiel Butler Masters 2013-07-17 11:51:07 EDT
Description of problem:
oo-accept-broker needs to check the httpd_execmem SELinux Boolean.

The broker and the console both need httpd_execmem to be enabled (the broker and the console both use Passenger, which executes writable memory, and the console uses The Ruby Racer, which uses V8, which also executes writable memory).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OSE 1.2.1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run `setsebool httpd_execmem=false`.
2. Run `oo-accept-broker`.

Actual results:
Previously, oo-accept-broker did not report any problem with SELinux.

Expected results:
oo-accept-broker should report a failure because httpd_execmem is not enabled.

Verified this bug with 1.2/2013-07-17.1, and PASS.

# setsebool httpd_execmem=false
# getsebool httpd_execmem
httpd_execmem --> off
# oo-accept-broker -v
FAIL: SELinux boolean httpd_execmem is disabled -- run setsebool -P httpd_execmem=on
