Reflection for Secure IT UNIX Server version 8.0


Installing Reflection for Secure IT rpm package on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with SELinux enabled (the default) generates an error message:

No sshd process found
/usr/sbin/sshd2: error while loading shared libraries: cannot enable executable
stack as shared object requires: Permission denied
/etc/init.d/sshd: Error server configuration file or hostkeys are invalid


You can use either of the following methods to start the server manually and resolve the problem.

Run the following command using the sshd command instead of the sshd script:



Use chcon to change the security context and then run the sshd script:

chcon -t sshd_exec_t /etc/init.d/sshd
/etc/init.d/sshd start


This error occurs because the installer is unable to run the script /etc/init.d/sshd to start the server.
