Description Matthew Robson 2019-04-05 14:12:39 UTC
Description of problem:

When upgrading Postgres from 9.2, there is a selinux issue creating the socket if you're using a Gluster file backed PVC.

It was discussed here:

But seems like it will end up as WONT_FIX.

Customer is looking for an environment variable to set the socket file directory (unix_socket_directories) per the recommendations from the other BZ.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Postgres 10

How reproducible:


Simple test:

python -c "import socket as s; sock = s.socket(s.AF_UNIX); sock.bind('/foo/test.sock')"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 224, in meth
    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.error: [Errno 13] Permission denied

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create postgres persistent container backed by a gluster / OCS file PVC

Actual results:

Permission denied to create the socket

Expected results:

While it should work, we are looking for a configurable to set the unix_socket_directories for the image.

Additional info:

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce as I do not think I have an Openshift cluster backed by Gluster available. But if it is just about the customer to be able to set postgresql's unix_socket_directories configuration setting for the rh-postgresql10 image then one can do that without any further changes to the image template by using Openshift's source-to-image [1].
For some info on how to achieve this, please check:
