Description William Brown 2014-07-25 02:35:04 UTC
Description of problem:
System was running normally. File trying to be accessed was /usr/share/pki/ca-trust-source by sssd_be
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/sssd/sssd_be from 'write' accesses on the directory .

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

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

Comment 1 William Brown 2014-07-25 02:36:53 UTC
Why is sssd trying to write to this file?

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2014-07-25 05:58:28 UTC
This is access check.
