Severity: 3-Major


With a fresh install of v14.1.0.x, you attempt to enable monitor logging for a node or pool member, an error message appears in /var/log/ltm. Also the log file to be created fails to be created. This behavior is due to SELinux changes. /var/log/auditd/audit.log show the SELinux violations logs. System reports messages similar to the following in /var/log/ltm: -- info bigd[12457]: Couldn't open logging file /var/log/monitors/Common_Splunk_HTTP_monitor-Common_node1-8088.log for monitor /Common/Splunk_HTTP_monitor on node /Common/node1.


Monitor logging fails. Error messages logged.


-- Clean installation of v14.1.0.x software. -- Enable monitor logging for a node or pool member.



Fix Information

Updated bigd SELinux rules to allow the monitor log file creations.
