Can't create temporary directory ERROR AGENT=REG SA VC CLAMAV

  • Product: Rosetta
  • Product Version: 5.3 and higher
  • Relevant for Installation Type: Local



Files between 40 GB and larger fail in TA Workbench > Validation with this virus check error:

 Virus Check:Fail - (vs_Error.16384) /operational_storage/storage1/2017/08/18/file_1/V1-FL2082.pdf: Can't create temporary directory ERROR.

Additionally, /operational_shared/logs/dps_log may also have (e.g.):

2017-08-18 09:23:00,433 INFO [com.exlibris.core.infra.svc.api.scriptRunner.ExecWrapper] (Thread-326) []
 ERROR: LibClamAV Warning: RWX mapping denied: Can't allocate RWX Memory: Permission denied
 ERROR: LibClamAV Warning: Bytecode: disabling JIT because SELinux is preventing 'execmem' access.
 ERROR: Run 'setsebool -P clamd_use_jit on'.

Note that running the following doesn't help:
 antivirus_use_jit --> off
 antivirus_use_jit --> on


This issue is likely related to the SELINUX authorizations defined in /etc/selinux/config.
Check to be see if 'SELINUX=enforcing'.
If 'SELINUX=enforcing', you'll need to change it to 'SELINUX=permissive'.
Note that if you set it to 'SELINUX=disabled', you will also need to reboot the server.
Server reboot is not needed if 'SELINUX=permissive'.

In the /etc/selinux/config file below, the 'SELINUX=enforcing' line is disabled and the S'ELINUX=permissive' is enabled:

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of three two values:
# targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
# minimum - Modification of targeted policy. Only selected processes are protected.
# mls - Multi Level Security protection.

Once you've made these changes, re-run the virus check on the file in the TA Workbench > Validation to see if the problem is resolved.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, the problem may be related to the files (large) size.
