When SELinux is disabled, I have no issues, but when it's Enforced then I'm facing this

[systemd] failed to get d-bus session: Failed to connect to socket /run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Permission denied


 sealert -a /var/log/audit/audit.log
100% done
found 2 alerts in /var/log/audit/audit.log

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd from connectto access on the unix_stream_socket /run/dbus/system_bus_socket.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that zabbix_agentd should be allowed connectto access on the system_bus_socket unix_stream_socket 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 'zabbix_agentd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-zabbixagentd
# semodule -i my-zabbixagentd.pp

i created a policy as suggested above,restarted zabbix-agent, now from zabbix agent log getting

**** Invalid AVC allowed in current policy ***

Well, first you have to identify the denial you are getting from SELinux. The easiest (in my opinion) way to do that is via the sealert utility.

First install the setroubleshoot-server package with:

yum install setroubleshoot-server

Then run:

sealert -a /var/log/audit/audit.log

You will probably get a lot of output, look for your specific denial, and follow the recommendations. But be sure to NOT allow things that shouldn't be allowed!

Here is an exmple of a denial, and the suggested woraround from sealert (my emphasis):

SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/postfix/qmgr from using the rlimitinh access on a process.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

you believe that qmgr should be allowed rlimitinh access on processes labeled postfix_qmgr_t 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 'qmgr' --raw | audit2allow -M my-qmgr
# semodule -i my-qmgr.pp

The example above concerns Postfix, again; look for your denial, and insert a local policy.

  • Yes, the Invalid AVC messages you will have to live with, I have! – maulinglawns Aug 22 '18 at 14:32
