common issues -- part 1

22:13 < _Tassadar> hi
22:14 < _Tassadar> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SELinux/samba <- i'm reading this document, on how to
configure selinux to allow samba to share a certain directory
22:14 < _Tassadar> now i'd like to share /data/files so i issued chcon -t samba_share_t /data/files
22:14 < _Tassadar> it worked, according to ls -Z
22:14 < _Tassadar> but access is still denied
22:15 < _Tassadar> should i recursively set that label to every file in the share as well?
22:16 < SwifT> _Tassadar: (without reading the file) check your AVC denials on what is actually denied, but I
would say "yes, you'll probably want to recursively set the type"
22:17 < _Tassadar> SwifT: what is the best way to check my AVC denials?
22:17 < _Tassadar> it's a server, i don't have any gui tools
22:20 < dgrift> _Tassadar: try Fedora manage confined services
22:20 < _Tassadar> hm no new entries appear in /var/log/audit/audit.log
22:20 < SwifT> _Tassadar: depends on your system log configuration; try tail -f /var/log/messages or
/var/log/audit.log
22:20 < _Tassadar> some stuff from cron appears every five mins, but nothing from smb
22:20 < dgrift> _Tassadar this is a common issue
22:20 < dgrift> its this:
22:21 < dgrift> youve created a new mountpoint called /data
22:21 < dgrift> selinux doesnt know that location
22:21 < dgrift> and so it labels it with a type: default_t
22:21 < dgrift> this is a type for locations unknown to selinux
22:21 < dgrift> and selinux silently denies access to type default_t
22:22 < dgrift> because it should not happen
22:22 < dgrift> all locations should be labelled properly
22:22 < _Tassadar> ah
22:22 < _Tassadar> i see
22:22 < dgrift> so how to fix it?:
22:22 < _Tassadar> with restorecon probably
22:22 < dgrift> well you should start by labelling /data
22:22 < dgrift> what type to label it, that depends on your requirements for /data
22:23 < _Tassadar> well it's all user data
22:23 < dgrift> var_t should probably do
22:23 < dgrift> i see
22:23 < _Tassadar> no binaries, no devices
22:23 < _Tassadar> lots of mp3's :)
22:23 < dgrift> whats in /data?
22:23 < dgrift> only dirs?
22:23 < _Tassadar> yes
22:23 < _Tassadar> /data/home/user1 /data/home/user2
22:24 < _Tassadar> /data/home/public_area
22:24 < _Tassadar> /data/public_area i mean
22:24 < dgrift> whats your distro?
22:24 < _Tassadar> Fedora 14
22:24 < dgrift> ok heres my suggestion
22:24 < dgrift> what is /data/home/user1 labelled?
22:24 < _Tassadar> nothing yet
22:25 < dgrift> but thats a user home dir?
22:25 < _Tassadar> drwx------. joe users unconfined_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 joe
22:25 < _Tassadar> well
22:25 < _Tassadar> i labelled it samba_share_t
22:25 < dgrift> ok
22:25 < _Tassadar> that's what the docs told me to do :)
22:26 < dgrift> what do you want?
22:26 < _Tassadar> well it doesn't work yet
22:26 < dgrift> what do you want with those dirs?
22:26 < _Tassadar> i would like the user to be able to mount his directory from a windows workstation
22:26 < dgrift> what is your requirement
22:26 < dgrift> i see
22:26 < _Tassadar> users are allowed read/write access to their own directories
22:26 < dgrift> and not use it locally?
22:26 < _Tassadar> and also in the public_area
22:26 < _Tassadar> no
22:26 < dgrift> ok
22:26 < _Tassadar> no shell access
22:27 < _Tassadar> no local processes are to be started from /data
22:27 < dgrift> so label /data root_t and the other dirs in there samba_share_t
22:27 < _Tassadar> recursively?
22:27 < dgrift> semanage -a -t root_t -f -d /data
22:28 < dgrift> semanage -a -t samba_share_t "/data/home(/.*)?"
22:28 < dgrift> restorecon -R -v /data
22:28 < dgrift> that will label the data dir root_t
22:28 < _Tassadar> nice
22:28 < _Tassadar> what does root_t mean?
22:28 < dgrift> and /data/home and all below it samba_share_t
22:29 < dgrift> it means it the type for filesystem roots
22:29 < dgrift> basically its accessable by all
22:29 < _Tassadar> oh okay, that makes sense in this case
22:29 < dgrift> see if it work
22:29 < _Tassadar> what would the -a option do?
22:29 < _Tassadar> my system doesn't know -a
22:29 < _Tassadar> oh
22:29 < _Tassadar> it does
22:29 < dgrift> oops
22:30 < _Tassadar> something else is wrong
22:30 < dgrift> non i made a booboo
22:30 < _Tassadar> okay
22:30 < dgrift> semanage fcontext -a -t root_t -f -d /data
22:30 < dgrift> semanage fcontext -a -t samba_share_t "/data/home(/.*)?"
22:30 < dgrift> restorecon -R -v /data
22:31 < _Tassadar> lol okay that could take a while
22:31 < _Tassadar> i'll run it without -v
22:31 < dgrift> hopefully it works for you
22:31 < dgrift> yes ok
22:31 < _Tassadar> it's a 11TB mount ;)
22:31 < dgrift> ouch....
22:31 < dgrift> all data on it?
22:31 < _Tassadar> yeah, no worries though, i'm not in a hurry
22:32 < _Tassadar> it's 60% used ;)
22:32 < dgrift> geez
22:32 < dgrift> i hope we get this right first time...
22:32 < dgrift> might want to test first
22:32 < dgrift> with a small dir
22:32 < _Tassadar> heh
22:32 < _Tassadar> i suppose so
22:32 < _Tassadar> ....
22:33 < dgrift> chcon -R -t samba_share_t /data/home/smalluserdir
22:33 < dgrift> chcon -t root_t /data
22:34 < _Tassadar> okay i'll try that
22:34 < dgrift> errr
22:34 < dgrift> its like this:
22:34 < dgrift> chcon -t root_t /data
22:34 < dgrift> chcon -t /data/home
22:34 < dgrift> err
22:34 < _Tassadar> ?
22:34 < _Tassadar> lol
22:34 < dgrift> chcon -t samba_share_t /data/home
22:34 < dgrift> chcon -R -t samba_share_t /data/home/smalluserdir
22:35 < dgrift> so three lines
22:35 < _Tassadar> yeah i understand, but restorecon is already running so /data and /data/home are already done
;)
22:35 < dgrift> because theres 3 dirs
22:35 < _Tassadar> i just tried with a small userdir and it works great !
22:35 < dgrift> ok
22:35 < _Tassadar> but, how do i keep everything neat
22:35 < _Tassadar> does restorecond do that?
22:35 < _Tassadar> i mean every time someone adds a file
22:36 < _Tassadar> it should get the right label immediately
22:36 < dgrift> it inherites the type of the parent dir
22:36 < dgrift> so should be fine
22:36 < _Tassadar> ah i see
22:36 < _Tassadar> so what does restorecond do then?
22:36 < dgrift> try it
22:36 < dgrift> well it watches directories for mislabelled files
22:36 < dgrift> but in your case its not applicable
22:37 < dgrift> because theres only one type
22:37 < _Tassadar> -rw-rw----. joe users unconfined_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 zzzzz.txt
22:37 < _Tassadar> yeah that works
22:37 < dgrift> samba_share_t
22:37 < _Tassadar> ah mislabelled, so not unlabelled
22:37 < _Tassadar> i understand
22:37 < _Tassadar> real 5m32.340s
22:37 < dgrift> well and unlabelled aswell
22:37 < _Tassadar> done :)
22:37 < dgrift> fast system
22:37 < _Tassadar> yeah :)
22:38 < dgrift> i should blog about this issue
22:38 < dgrift> its very common
22:38 < _Tassadar> definately
22:39 < dgrift> and people wonder why its not logging denials
22:39 < _Tassadar> yeah and the fact that audit.log doesn't show anything makes it hard to track for newbies like
me
22:39 < _Tassadar> exactly :)
22:39 < dgrift> can i use this chat log?
22:39 < dgrift> to publish?
22:39 < _Tassadar> errrr :)
22:39 < _Tassadar> i suppose
