:SELinux is preventing rpc.idmapd from 'read' accesses on the file /etc/samba/smb.conf.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that rpc.idmapd should be allowed read access on the smb.conf file by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep rpc.idmapd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
