Bug Description

the apparmor logs shows a couple of problems:

Nov 18 13:07:45 carol kernel: [107615.254389] audit: type=1400 audit(1511010465.396:304): apparmor="DENIED" operation="sendmsg" info="Failed name lookup - disconnected path" error=-13 profile="/usr/sbin/ntpd" name="run/systemd/journal/dev-log" pid=16818 comm="ntpd" requested_mask="w" denied_mask="w" fsuid=0 ouid=0


Nov 18 13:07:45 carol kernel: [107615.253441] audit: type=1400 audit(1511010465.395:300): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="/usr/sbin/ntpd" name="/usr/local/bin/" pid=16815 comm="ntpd" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=0 ouid=0

I fixed these by amending /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.ntpd...

change the opening to this:
  /usr/sbin/ntpd flags=(attach_disconnected) {

add these:
  # syslog
  /run/systemd/journal/dev-log w,

  # not sure why it needs this
  /usr/local/bin/ r,

apport-collect 1733070

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

I quoted specific examples from the apparmor logs, was that not enough?

I will try collecting the log again. It's easy enough to undo the fix.

Ok, the log hadn't been rotated/lost, so I simply filtered out the ntp events from syslog

It's not new. This has been reported before.

Oh, and there is also:
with a proposed fix from a few a days ago, at least for some of this.

apologies if I accidentally created a duplicate, I did search for an issue!

this one should be amended to put "ntp" or "ntpd" in the title:

I guess I didn't find this, perhaps because when I searched I didn't try the Mirantis/Openstack product, just bugs in the OS or main distribution:

I think this bug and the 1475019 one could be marked as dupes of 1727202
