Summary0014821: Wrong security context on /dev/watchdog and /usr/libexec/openipmi-helper
DescriptionIf /dev/watchdog is not created by /usr/libexec/openipmi-helper script but some module, e.g. hpwdt, than it has security context watchdog_device_t. Suppose it is due to:
grep watchdog /etc/selinux/targeted/active/file_contexts
/dev/watchdog.* -c system_u:object_r:watchdog_device_t:s0

policy. However, /usr/libexec/openipmi-helper script has different context - ipmievd_exec_t, which results in fail in helper script as it thinks there is no /dev/watchdog node while there is.

Unfortunately, this test: if [ ${UDEV_EXISTS} -eq 0 -a ! -e /dev/watchdog ]; fails if /dev/watchdog exists but script has no access to it.

This has changed as of 7.5 version. It worked in 7.4.
TagsNo tags attached.

This sounds like a bug that will have been inherited from upstream so you also need to report this on in order to get it fixed. CentOS rebuilds the RHEL sources unmodified except for debranding so to get an issue fixed that comes from RHEL, you have to get it fixed in RHEL first.
