    VMware Converter Standalone drops /usr/bin/ping SELinux capabilities

    tomuxi Novice



      It seems that the converter drops proper SELinux-capabilities from /usr/bin/ping during conversion. Because of this, normal user's will not anymore have rights to use ping since it opens a RAW socket and that is guarded by SELinux (when enforced). The issue can be fixed manually either by giving back the proper capabilities to /usr/bin/ping or by reinstalling iputils. Anyhow it would be nice if Converter preserved SELinux-capabilities properly during conversion.
