PrivacyIdea on RedHat

Hi there, I am trying to install and configure PrivacyIdea and FreeRADIUS
in a RedHat AWS instance… I would like to know if the installation
differs too much from the CentOS documentation available at the moment,
because I am having few issues following the current howTo!

Many thanks!

Hi thank you for the prompt reply!

…it might depend on which RHEL version you are installing.
There should™ be not much differences.

Shoot.

What is your version?
What have you done so far?
What are your problems?

Kind regards

Did you enter the virtualenv when running pip install?

What does the directory /opt/privacyIDEA/etc/privacyidea look like?

Does a directory /etc/privacyidea exist?

Probably you ran

pip install privacyidea

outside your python virtualenv.
You need to enter the virtualenv via

source /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/activate

and then you need to run

pip install privacyidea

Then there will be a file in this directory.

Kind regards

Hi Andrei,

you need run the “pip install” commands from within the virtualenv.
I think you have done so, otherwise I guess “pip” would not be found.

But if you run it from within virtualenv you should not create
directories outside of virutalenv.

And if you ran this as user “ec2-user”, how did the
directory /usr/lib/privacyidea came into life, as this user probably has
no write access.

So make sure, that you run “pip install” from within virtualenv.

  • i.e. after doing “source bin/activate”.

Please check:

  • Does a directory /opt/privacyIDEA/lib/privacyidea/ exist?
  • Does a directory /usr/lib/privacyidea/
    and /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/privacyidea/ exist?

If you answer 1. NO and 2. YES, then you ran the “pip install” outside
of the python virtualenv. :wink:

Kind regards

Hello Andrei,

you are totally right!
A Howto should work.

I will look into this and come back to you later!

Hi Andrei,

A normal user should have no write access to /usr/lib…
So calling virtualenv as normal user (without sudo!!!), can not result
in this.
I recommend this as a starting point for further investigations.

Kind regards
CorneliusAm Freitag, den 20.11.2015, 07:56 -0800 schrieb Andrei Burn:

The virtualenv version is 13.1.2
I have created a normal user and I did the whole process again just to
get to the same result… it creates the directory on /usr/lib …
Anyway I will continue investigating why this is happening.

Thank you very much for your help Cornelius!

    One hint: 
    
    Use a normal user. This user will not be allowed to install
    to /usr/ 
    
    Create the virtualenv in the users home directory and see what

The virtualenv version is 13.1.2
I have created a normal user and I did the whole process again just to get
to the same result… it creates the directory on /usr/lib …
Anyway I will continue investigating why this is happening.

Thank you very much for your help Cornelius!

Hi Cornelius

Yes you were right, it was installed outside the virtualenv… how did
that happened I don’t know …
So I decided to restart with a fresh RedHat installation… then I’ve
noticed that when I give the command virtualenv /opt/privacyIDEA it
automatically install Pip

[ec2-user@ip-172-31-27-9 ~]$ sudo virtualenv /opt/privacyIDEA
New python executable in /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/python
Installing

Setuptools…done.

Installing

Pip…done.

Then after that it comes to the same problem, even after activate the
source /bin/privacyidea… /etc/privacyidea is not there…it is
again outside of the virtualenv
So I’ve tried to cancel the pip installation using --no-pip, and then
I installed pip after activate source /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/activate
But when it comes to create the directories, it always create outside
of the virtualenv on /usr/lib.
Any suggestions?

Many Thanks

Andrei

Hi Andrei,

    you need run the "pip install" commands from within the 
    virtualenv. 
    I think you have done so, otherwise I guess "pip" would not be 
    found. 
    
    But if you run it from within virtualenv you should not 
    create 
    directories outside of virutalenv. 
    
    And if you ran this as user "ec2-user", how did the 
    directory /usr/lib/privacyidea came into life, as this user 
    probably has 
    no write access. 
    
    So make sure, that you run "pip install" from within 
    virtualenv. 
    - i.e. after doing "source bin/activate". 
    
    Please check: 
    * Does a directory /opt/privacyIDEA/lib/privacyidea/ exist? 
    * Does a directory /usr/lib/privacyidea/ 
      and /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/privacyidea/ exist? 
    
    If you answer 1. NO and 2. YES, then you ran the "pip install" 
    outside 
    of the python virtualenv. ;-) 
              
    Kind regards

    Probably you ran 
    
            pip install privacyidea 
    
    outside your python virtualenv. 
    You need to enter the virtualenv via 
    
            source /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/activate 
    and then you need to run 
    
            pip install privacyidea

What virtualenv version is available on RHEL7?

Older versions had parameters to use system libs or not…
But nevertheless I never saw installing things from within the system
installing outside.

One hint:

Use a normal user. This user will not be allowed to install to /usr/

Create the virtualenv in the users home directory and see what happens.

Kind regards

Hi Cornelius

Yes you were right, it was installed outside the virtualenv… how did
that happened I don’t know …
So I decided to restart with a fresh RedHat installation… then I’ve
noticed that when I give the command virtualenv /opt/privacyIDEA it
automatically install Pip

[ec2-user@ip-172-31-27-9 ~]$ sudo virtualenv /opt/privacyIDEA
New python executable in /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/python
Installing
Setuptools…done.
Installing
Pip…done.

Then after that it comes to the same problem, even after activate the
source /bin/privacyidea… /etc/privacyidea is not there…it is
again outside of the virtualenv
So I’ve tried to cancel the pip installation using --no-pip, and then
I installed pip after activate source /opt/privacyIDEA/bin/activate
But when it comes to create the directories, it always create outside
of the virtualenv on /usr/lib.
Any suggestions?

Many Thanks

Andrei

Hi Andrei,

    you need run the "pip install" commands from within the
    virtualenv. 
    I think you have done so, otherwise I guess "pip" would not be
    found. 
    
    But if you run it from within virtualenv you should not
    create 
    directories outside of virutalenv. 
    
    And if you ran this as user "ec2-user", how did the 
    directory /usr/lib/privacyidea came into life, as this user
    probably has 
    no write access. 
    
    So make sure, that you run "pip install" from within
    virtualenv. 
    - i.e. after doing "source bin/activate". 
    
    Please check: 
    * Does a directory /opt/privacyIDEA/lib/privacyidea/ exist? 
    * Does a directory /usr/lib/privacyidea/ 
      and /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/privacyidea/ exist? 
    
    If you answer 1. NO and 2. YES, then you ran the "pip install"
    outside 
    of the python virtualenv. ;-) 
             
    Kind regards 
    Cornelius
