Description of problem:
Testing  Multiple Graphical Login

1.    Install RHEL desktop on multiple virtual or bare metal machines.
2.    Edit the /etc/dconf/profile/user file on every client. If one does not already exist, create it.
3.    Add a line containing service-db:keyfile/user to the file and save your changes.
4.    Setup shared /home directory via NFS on each machine. Put the following line into /etc/fstab
    nest.test.redhat.com:/mnt/qa/scratch/rhel7-gnome-shell-shared-home  /home  nfs  rw  0 0
5.    Create account with username "test" and password "redhat".
6.    Login to Gnome.
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/useradd from 'setattr' accesses on the file .bash_logout.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow use to nfs home dirs
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'use_nfs_home_dirs' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
setsebool -P use_nfs_home_dirs 1

*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that useradd should be allowed setattr access on the .bash_logout 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 useradd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
