Re: [Freeipa-users] question about generating certificates

so I has stoped tracking previous request by
$ sudo ipa-getcert stop-tracking -i 20131106075356

and has generated new request
# ipa-getcert request -f /var/lib/certmonger/requests/server.crt
-k /var/lib/certmonger/requests/server.key -K
postgresql/postgresql.example.com -N CN=postgresql.example.com -D

that made desired files to appear at /var/lib/certmonger/requests/
that is okay! :)
but! I want them in /var/lib/pgsql/9.3/data/
so what is the problem? why not just copy them at that directory?
the problem is that when I list cert requests, I see this:
Request ID '20131106113520':
	stuck: no
	key pair storage:
	issuer: CN=Certificate Authority,O=EXAMPLE.COM
	subject: CN=postgresql.example.com,O=EXAMPLE.COM
	expires: 2015-11-07 11:35:20 UTC
	eku: id-kp-serverAuth,id-kp-clientAuth
	pre-save command:
	post-save command:
	track: yes
	auto-renew: yes

we can see that file location in that list is defined at request time.

Shall I make Selinux to let certmonger to access /var/lib/pgsql ? or is
there any other solution?
certmonger does run under certmonger_t SELinux type and system_r role.
It can already write to file contexts named certmonger_*_t and cert_t. For
storing certificates you would need to use cert_t file context.

mkdir -p /var/lib/pgsql/9.3/data/certs
semanage fcontext -a -t cert_t  '/var/lib/pgsql/9.3/data/certs(/.*)?'
restorecon -R -v /var/lib/pgsql/9.3/data/certs

I would advise you against placing the files directly in
/var/lib/pgsql/9.3/data as opposed to the subdirectory. It is safer to
specify path to the certificate in pgsql configuration.

And I think that there mast be note at documentation about such
situations with Selinux.
Yes. You can also install selinux-policy-devel package and read
certmonger_selinux (8) manpage.

Can you open a ticket against FreeIPA documentation.
