Sounds like the shell tried to interpret a special character in your provided password. I'll see if I can prevent that.

Thank you for this hint, I have corrected the SELinux security context as it was not like on my eFav4 box used in production:

Code: Select all

semanage fcontext -a -t mscan_spool_t /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine
While checking the default SELinux context I have noted difference between eFav4 (CentOs7) and eFav5 (Rocky Linux 9.x):

eFav4:

Code: Select all

[root@IT1MAILGW1 etc]# matchpathcon -V /var/spool/MailScanner/*
/var/spool/MailScanner/archive verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterin verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterout verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/ramdisk_store verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin verified.
eFav5:

Code: Select all

[root@it1mailgw5 ~]# matchpathcon -V /var/spool/MailScanner/*
/var/spool/MailScanner/archive verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming has context system_u:object_r:tmpfs_t:s0, should be system_u:object_r:mscan_spool_t:s0
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterin verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterout verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/ramdisk_store verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin verified.
After correction and reboot the status is always as above, but so far it seems to be no functional problem.

Hi
i can see the same on my eFa4 (CentOS7).

Code: Select all

[root@efa4 ~]# matchpathcon -V /var/spool/MailScanner/*
/var/spool/MailScanner/archive verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming has context system_u:object_r:tmpfs_t:s0, should be system_u:object_r:mscan_spool_t:s0
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterin verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/milterout verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/ramdisk_store verified.
/var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin verified.
Just for Info.

Same here on both EFA4 and EFA5.

Code: Select all

/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming has context system_u:object_r:tmpfs_t:s0, should be system_u:object_r:mscan_spool_t:s0
But never experienced a problem actually? What should not work? Quarantine of virus contained mails? That is seldom and actually gives me always the same error that I can't remember...

This is not an issue. This directory is on a temp filesystem which is why the discrepancy. The eFa SELinux ruleset already handles it accordingly.

Hello!

I would like to test the new EFA 5 and have a few questions:

- Will it be possible to upgrade directly to the stable version
- What are the system requirements for EFA 5 or are they the same as for EFA4?

Thank you!

After installing the test version, when the stable version is released you can switch the repo over to the stable version.
