SELinux

As of version 3.1, MapR changes the configuration of SELinux from Enforcing to Permissive, and disables iptables.

# chkconfig iptables --list
iptables           0:off    1:off    2:off    3:off    4:off    5:off    6:off
# getenforce
Permissive

Changes Made by the configure.sh Script

When you run the configure.sh script to perform initial configuration for your cluster, the script creates a group named shadow if that group does not already exist, then sets the shadow file and the mapr user's group membership to shadow. The configure.sh script then modifies the permissions for /etc/shadow to grant read access to the shadow group. These changes are required to enable Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) to validate user authentication.
