Description Rich Megginson 2013-09-26 11:14:30 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1012526 +++

Description of problem:

The 389-ds-base (dirsrv) needs to create and use a subdirectory of /dev/shm e.g. /dev/shm/slapd-hostname

We are able to workaround the problem by creating a policy module like this:

type dirsrv_t;
type tmpfs_t;
allow dirsrv_t tmpfs_t:dir create;

semanage -i dirsrv_tmpfs.pp

but it would be better if this were part of the base OS policy

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 6.4/6.5
