Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a mandatory access control security mechanism implemented in the kernel.
When enabled, SELinux has two modes: enforcing and permissive.
SELinux is pre-installed and pre-configured in permissive mode in RedHat Enterprise Linux and its clones (Oracle Linux, Rocky Linux, CentOS)

Follow this procedure to enable and configure SELiunx with LPAR2RRD and STOR2RRD.

LPAR2RRD, STOR2RRD and Xormon have not been fully tested with SELiunx enabled and may behave unexpectedly.
The following procedure is provided as is without guarantee or support.
Note that does not include using 3rd party software which might be needed for some device monitoring

Note: run all commands as root

Install SELinux tools

yum install -y setools-console policycoreutils-python-utils

Check SELinux status


Enable SELinux in permissive mode and reboot

Enabling SELinux without rebooting is not possible.
If SELinux was previously disabled, the system needs to perform a full filesystem relabeling on the next boot.
Relabeling may take several minutes.

Set SELINUX=permissive in /etc/selinux/config and reboot

sed -i 's/^SELINUX=.*$/SELINUX=permissive/g' /etc/selinux/config

Configure SELiunx

Set SELinux to enforcing

setenforce 1
sed -i 's/^SELINUX=.*$/SELINUX=enforcing/g' /etc/selinux/config
