Disabling SELinux

Security-Enhanced Linux, or SELinux, allows you to set access control through policies.

Warning: If you have SELinux enabled, strongDM gateway installation will fail. You’ll need to set SELinux in permissive mode on each host before you attempt to deploy a gateway.

  1. Check the SELinux state: $ getenforce If the output is either Permissive or Disabled, you should be set. If the output is enforcing, continue to the next step.
  2. There are two ways that you can disable SELinux - either by editing a config file, or by using the setenforce command
    1. If editing the config file, Open the /etc/selinux/config file (in some systems, the /etc/sysconfig/selinux file).
    2. Change the line SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=permissive.
    3. Save and close the file.
    4. Reboot your system
  3. If using the setenforce simply run the command $ sudo setenforce 0
  4. After performing either of the above methods, check again using getenforce
     $ getenforce
     Permissive
