Insights and SELinux.. round 123443

Posted on

Hi,

So before I open up any kind of support case.. I'm just wanting to check to see if I'm doing it wrong.

Setup: Standard RHEL 8.7 install (any version really) + redhat-insights installed + SELinux enforcing + FIPS mode

Problem: selinux things ALL THE TIME.

eg.

SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/platform-python3.6 from write access on the directory /var/tmp/insights-client/.

I feel like it's wack-a-mole when it comes to this.. granted, I'm no SELinux expert, but sheesh, these are all RHEL products, why do I have to do anything to make this work together?

Do I really need to make modules and correct contexts for standard RHEL controlled items?
Is it just me?
