Vertica Analytics Platform Version 10.0.x Documentation

SELinux Configuration

Vertica does not support SELinux except when SELinux is running in permissive mode. If it detects that SELinux is installed and the mode cannot be determined the installer reports this issue with the identifier: S0080. If the mode can be determined, and the mode is not permissive, then the issue is reported with the identifier: S0081.

Red Hat and SUSE Systems

You can either disable SELinux or change it to use permissive mode.

To disable SELinux:

  1. Edit /etc/selinux/config and change setting for SELinux to disabled (SELINUX=disabled). This disables SELinux at boot time.
  2. As root/sudo, type setenforce 0 to disable SELinux immediately.

To change SELinux to use permissive mode:

  1. Edit /etc/selinux/config and change setting for SELINUX to permissive (SELINUX=Permissive).
  2. As root/sudo, type setenforce Permissive to switch to permissive mode immediately.
