SELinux Troubleshooting Tip

Sometimes there are things happening on Linux systems which don't make sense, many times it is because SELinux is preventing things.  You can spend alot of time getting SELinux to behave, or you can put it in permissive mode, or disable it, in the NMIS VM it has been disabled.

Much information to be found with Google, the following describes either option.

NMIS Tools and scripts

nmis.pl provides 2 methods for checking the directory structure of nmis and ensuring that the structure is complete and has the correct permissions (based on your Config.nmis).  Running type=audit will report discrepancies between your structure and what is required, type=config will fix those errors 

Code Block
# optionally audit your config
/usr/local/nmis8/bin/nmis.pl type=audit
# fix your config
/usr/local/nmis8/bin/nmis.pl type=config

Additonally, the script fixperms.pl will go through and set the permissions on each file to ensure that NMIS can access the files it requires to operate normally 

Code Block
# fix permissions 
 /usr/local/nmis8/admin/fixperms.pl
