I am trying to set up a privileged container on Ubuntu where apparmor denies to mount /run /run/lock and /sys/fs/cgroup while running lxc-start.

Violations

[ 1621.278919] audit: type=1400 audit(1499177276.634:12): apparmor="DENIED" operation="mount" info="failed flags match" error=-13 profile="/usr/bin/lxc-start" name="/run/" pid=2097 comm="systemd" fstype="tmpfs" srcname="tmpfs" flags="rw, nosuid, nodev, strictatime"

lxc-start --version: 2.0.6

Kernel version: 4.9

Any hints?

  • Are you looking to deny them or is apparmor automatically denying them and you want to allow them? Commented Aug 7, 2017 at 12:00
  • @RamanSailopal : Apparmor is automatically denying these mounts for the lxc-start profile and I want apparmor to allow them. I haven't changed anything in the usr.bin.lxc-start apparmor profile,It's the default one which came along with the distribution.

Install the apparmor-utils package and then kick off two sessions to the server. In one session, run:

genprof /usr/bin/lxc-start

In the other, actually run the process. The genprof session will then prompt you for what you actually want the process to have access to.

Just as Raman Sailopal said - genprof can help here. Thou it's aa-genprof <path to application>

$ sudo aa-genprof /usr/bin/lxc-start
