SELinux and MegaRAID snmp

Post by masahiko » 2015/04/10 23:26:53

I'm using SNMP tools provided by LSI ( ) to check the status of MegaRAID.
However, when SELinux is enforcing, it fails to get the information.
Please show me how to configure the SELinux to enable the snmp.

It seems that snmpd check the raid status as follows,

1. snmpd calls "lsi_mrdsnmpmain".
2. lsi_mrdsnpmain gets the RAID information from the daemon, "lsi_mrdsnpagent", via shared memory.

Here is the log from /var/log/audit/audit.log

type=ANOM_ABEND msg=audit(1427756122.292:460): auid=0 uid=0 gid=0 ses=3 subj=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 pid=25973 comm="lsi_mrdsnmpagen" exe="/etc/lsi_mrdsnmp/lsi_mrdsnmpagent" sig=6

Can't you just do something like: grep -i avc /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M megaraid.pp ?

Also have a look at the FAQ
