Applicable for all Oracle VM Releases
Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a default Linux feature that offers mandatory access controls using Linux kernel security modules (LSM) along with user-space tools. Security Enhanced Linux is not supported with Oracle VM Manager, and if enabled, Security Enhanced Linux will break Oracle VM Manager.
 
Note: Starting with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2), Security Enhanced Linux is supported for Oracle Linux 4, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Oracle Linux 5, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
 
To confirm the status of SELinux, as root type sestatus as shown in the next example.
# sestatus
SELinux status:                 disabled
 
The above example shows a host with SELinux disabled.
 
Security Enhanced Linux can be temporarily set to permissive by typing "echo 0 > /selinux/enforce", as root. Security Enhanced Linux can be re-enabled (enforcing) by typing "echo 1 > /selinux/enforce", as root.
 
Security Enhanced Linux can be permanently disabled by changing the "SELINUX=enforcing" entry to "SELINUX=disabled" in the "/etc/selinux/config" file. Security Enhanced Linux can be re-enabled by changing the "SELINUX=disabled" entry to "SELINUX=enforcing" in the "/etc/selinux/config" file. A re-boot is required after changing the "SELINUX=” value to enable to new settings.
