Profiles in complain mode don't enforce any profile rules, just log violation attempts.

Hi @ha14

Let us understand what it is. In linux os, apparmor just similar to windows defender.It is mandatory access control (MAC).

smbd is related to remote access service which supports windows machine. So I don't want smbd profile out of apparmor. complain mode's logs are minimum required to track.

Apart from apparmor (which is MAC) their is a optional tool called apparmor notification (aa-notify) (notification service for apparmor).

My major concern is that I want to disable its message for complain mode's violation report.

I can't afford to disable apparmor notification completely. Because, in case of blocking, I will land in problem. As I am a new Linux user.

Friend, just I found the exact problem. Currently samba services are running in user level. This is the problem because the folder /run/samba/msg.lock is owned by root. It is privilege issue.

hi @ha14

find final solution.

1) samba/msg.lock is known issue and reported bug to smb team. So no way to fix it. Also samba should be with user level privilege. So re-installation will not help.

2) currently aa-notify don't offers ignore message option.

the possible solution is either remove the samba profile from apparmor. Or remove the notification service.

I just wasted full day behind this. sorry to waste your time too. I will check with possible security risk and decide which one to keep.

HI @ha14

Thanks I will try firejail too. The final resolution for the aa-notify is that it is a nonsense. You will be disturbed a log in desktop. It is more better to view the last few 100 lines when you have any issue.
