Re-Enabling SELinux

Once you’ve deployed a gateway, you’ll want to re-enable SELinux. This is just a reverse of the disabling process.

  1. Check the SELinux state: $ getenforce If the output is either Permissive or Disabled, you will want to re-enable it. If the output is Permissive, continue to the next step.
  2. There are two ways that you can re-enable 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=permissive to SELINUX=enforcing.
    3. Save and close the file.
    4. Reboot your system
  3. If using the setenforce simply run the command $ sudo setenforce 1
  4. After performing either of the above methods, check again using getenforce
     $ getenforce
