Summary0001752: Fresh Snort install fails to start after rules update script is run
DescriptionAfter a fresh install of Snort and running the script, Snort cannot start up by default.

Checking /var/log/messages show the following error:

FATAL ERROR: Unable to open rules file "/usr/local/pf/var/conf//usr/local/pf/conf/snort/emerging-virus.rules": No such file or directory.

It appears the update_rules script failed to install this one rule set in conf/snort directory even though it is present in the violations.conf file by default.
Steps To ReproduceFresh install of PacketFence 4.0.6-2

service packetfence stop
yum install snort
run the rules update located /usr/local/pf/addons/snort/
service packetfence start
service snortd status
Additional InformationI was able to start Snort after removing the emerging-virus.rules from the list of Snort rules in violations.conf file
TagsNo tags attached.
