Resolve Kimchi issues on PowerKVM (if any)

If kimchi is not working for you.  Try below

1) Check if kimchi service is running?  if not start the service.

[root@powerkvm ~]# service kimchid status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status  kimchid.service
kimchid.service – Kimchi server
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/kimchid.service; enabled)
Active: active (running) since Mon 2014-09-01 15:10:30 EDT; 1s ago
Process: 20010 ExecStop=/bin/kill -TERM $MAINPID (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
Main PID: 39442 (kimchid)

[root@powerkvm ~]#

2) check the list of permissive domains within SELinux.  Run the following command:

sudo semanage permissive -l | grep httpd_t

If httpd_t is not returned as a result from this command, you need to add httpd_t to the list of permissive domains

1. Stop Kimchi: systemctl stop kimchid

2. Add httpd_t to the permissive domain:  semanage permissive -a httpd_t

3. Check list the of permissive domains again: semanage permissive -l | grep httpd_t

4. You should see “httpd_t” as result

5. Start Kimchi:  systemctl start kimchid

6. Verify that Kimchi is started:  systemctl status kimchid

3) For impatient & Dont care about security:  Disable firewal and start service

( not recommended for security parity point of view)
