Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/nmbd from 'open' accesses on the file /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern.

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

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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2014-07-15 22:41:26 UTC
Any idea why nmbd would be trying to read this file?

Comment 2 magnus 2014-07-16 10:10:31 UTC
I just upgraded from F17 via F18, so it's a old config.
A quick Google search seems to indicate that Samba scans all mounts on startup.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2014-08-06 22:40:57 UTC
Well this is not a mount it is an open.But I don't see a problem with allowing it to read it.
