Information:

Environment

RedHat Linux machines with SElinux enabled.

  • Collector
  • Server
  • Configuration
  • Installation
  • Client
  • Java Agent

 

Symptoms

multiple problems have been reported depending on the actual settings of SElinux.
Some reported issues were
1. Cannot install dynaTrace (permission denied)
2. Cannot install dynaTrace (jar file not found)
3. access denied errors and preventing the Web Server agent from loading

Solution

The Dynatrace product is not tested with SElinux enabled on Redhat.
If your SElinux administrator cannot resolve the issue you are experiencing using/installing the dynaTrace product it is recommend that you turn SElinux OFF (disabled).

See your Redhat documentation for details on SElinux configurations.


To completely disable SElinux you can do the following

In the /etc/selinux/config file change the line

SELINUX=enforcing
to

SELINUX=disabled

depending on your machine a reboot may be required after making the above change to the /etc/selinux/config file

  1. Anonymous (login to see details)

    The only other thing I can report is that UEM doesn't seem to work with apache when running SELINUX. Disabling fixed it.
