Description K. Anderson 2014-01-02 22:23:03 UTC
Description of problem:
I installed tomcat and wanted to try setting up multiple tomcat instances. The current tomcat@.service looks for a catalina base under /var/lib/tomcats (not tomcat). I created the directory and tried setting it to tomcat_var_lib_t instead of var_lib_t. Issuing chcon -t tomcat_var_lib_t /var/lib/tomcats generates the error. I could be doing something wrong but I believe this should be allowed.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that chcon should be allowed mac_admin access on the  capability2 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 chcon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
