Description Michael Young 2012-07-18 07:49:07 EDT
I updated to sudo-1.7.2p1-14.el5_8 and then discovered automount wasn't working. On checking the logs I discovered there were problems reading /etc/nsswitch.conf and checking the selinux permissions showed that it now had permissions
root:object_r:rpm_script_tmp_t
If I run /sbin/restorecon /etc/nsswitch.conf it sets the permissions back to
system_u:object_r:etc_t
and the automounts work again.
