ipdiscover-util.pl can't be launched, you must set execution rights [closed]

Hello guys!

I'm a beginner in UNIX and OCS so I made a little installation lab to learn how it works.

My OCS Server runs on Centos 6.6 and I configured a Debian client in order to run SNMP.

OCS Agent is installed on the server, on the Debian client and on my computer (Windows 7).

This 3 computers appears good in OCS Inventory. IPdiscover works fine too and SNMP is ok.

Here comes my problem : when I go on my Non identified peripherals list, I see this message :

ipdiscover-util.pl can't be launched, you must set execution rights

I did a chmod 777 on this file but it changed anything. I searched on the Internet but I only found that it doesn't work on Windows server (it's not my case). 

I don't know what files could be important to join here so tell me.

If you have any idea, I'll take it :)


PS: sorry for my english...

Just found the answer...

SELinux policy which higher priority than Linux permission

In order to let httpd run the contents, here's the sample code which need to be added:

chcon -t httpd_sys_content_t ipdiscover-util.pl

This will add a label to specified file and let it run.

Where do I need to add this? or just run the command? i am confused. Please help.
You just have to run the command on your OCS Server.
That's what I thought but still getting the message? Do  I need to restart a service?
Did you try to restart your server?

I didn't really remember what I did to make this work, I did it several months ago :(. Hope you will find a solution.
