View Full Version : SELinux: nothing to do ???

24th August 2017, 05:00 AM
Hi All,

When I try to activate a license on Basis (a database), SE Linux goes nuts. Here is one of the messages:

SELinux is preventing basis from execute access on the file /var/lib/sss/mc/passwd.
***** Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests **************************
If you believe that basis should be allowed execute access on the passwd 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:
# ausearch -c 'basis' --raw | audit2allow -M my-basis
# semodule -X 300 -i my-basis.pp

When I run the recommended actions, I told "Nothing to do" by all 14 or so of them. Here is one of them:

# ausearch -c 'basis' --raw | audit2allow -M my-basis
Nothing to do

<editorial comment>AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!</editorial comment>

I am stumped.
