Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1002209
semanage fcontext provides wrong SELinux local fcontext equivalence when directory provided has a trailing /
Last modified: 2014-10-14 04:04:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm currently trying to set the SELinux local fcontext Equivalence of my directory /u01 to be the same as /usr.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. semanage fcontext -a -e /usr /u01/
2.restorecon -R -v /u01/
Produces type default_t
If one were to remove the trailing / in the original step 1 as follows:
semanage fcontext -a -e /usr/ /u01, followed by a restorecon -R -v /u01/ it would provide the correct labeling.
