Description Albert Strasheim 2004-04-06 07:00:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312

Description of problem:
Normal users cannot access the contents of the /etc/samba directory.
smbclient requires acesss to /etc/samba/smb.conf. Starting smbclient
as a normal user produces the following SELinux error:

Apr  6 13:04:41 asok kernel: audit(1081249481.634:0): avc:  denied  {
search } for  pid=3815 exe=/usr/bin/smbclient name=samba dev=hda5
ino=754841 scontext=user_u:user_r:user_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:samba_etc_t tclass=dir

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
samba-3.0.3-1.pre1 policy-1.9.2-10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start smbclient as normal user

Actual Results:  smbclient fails to read /etc/samba/smb.conf

Expected Results:  smbclient should work

Additional info:  Users should probably be able to access files such
as /etc/samba/smbpasswd as well.
