Common errors in Fedora

  • SELinux is enabled in enforcing mode by default. Run getenforce to check the status. Rsyslog is one of the processes protected by SELinux policy. On its initial configuration, it only allows sending data to port 514/udp.
  • The SELinux policy must be modified to allow rsyslog to report its events to Devo. For more information, check out the syslog & SELinux configuration article.
