Quagga in VE

From OpenVZ Virtuozzo Containers Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Quagga inside a CT requires 3 Linux capabilities configured for the container on the host node:

vzctl set CTID --capability net_admin:on --save
vzctl set CTID --capability net_raw:on --save
vzctl set CTID --capability sys_admin:on --save

When they are not configured, you'll see the following symptoms when starting up zebra:

 # zebra
 privs_init: initial cap_set_proc failed

And when stracing:

# strace zebra
capset(0x19980330, 0, {CAP_NET_ADMIN|CAP_NET_RAW|CAP_SYS_ADMIN, CAP_NET_ADMIN|CAP_NET_RAW|CAP_SYS_ADMIN, 0}) = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)
write(2, "privs_init: initial cap_set_proc"..., 40privs_init: initial cap_set_proc failed
) = 40
exit_group(1)                           = ?
