Hi

 

I am trying to install SCSP agent 5.2.9 on my linux redhat server. But the installation will only be successful if i disable the SElinux.

My question is

- Does SCSP agent support SELinux?

- Can i enabled back SELinux after installation?

 

Thanks

SELinux is not supported by the CSP agent, so the install will always stop if you keep SELinux enabled.

Enabling SELinux back is not recommended since it can and will interfer with the CSP agent.

 

Why disabling SELinux is important? Because both SELinux and CSP are doing the same thing, except CSP does it better! It is like having two AV softs on the same machine, not recommended.

Let me know if you have questions! And if this post has answered them, please mark it as solution ;)

Best regards,

Shulk.

I forgot to mention that the same applies for SLES, AIX, Solaris, HP-UX.

AppArmor (SLES), TrustedAIX, eTrust I guess for HP-UX (correct me here if I am wrong, not too familiar with this OS), they all need to be disabled before installing CSP agent.
