Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime during logrotate, see above and below

Actual results:
Missing SELinux context transition from logrotate to RabbitMQ.

Expected results:
SELinux context transition from logrotate to RabbitMQ or some exception.

Additional info:
Above AVC denied messages where gathered while SELinux was enforced, it
seems like the rabbitmq-server is still working without impact (as far as
we can tell currently). Nevertheless the SELinux policy should address
this one or the other way for the future.

Cross-filed case 01566784 on the Red Hat customer portal.
Comment 3 Simon Sekidde 2016-01-14 11:25:43 EST

Are you able to provide the raw audit messages when in permissive mode? 

 logrotate -d -f /etc/logrotate.conf
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2016-01-14 12:11:55 EST
Unfortunately '-d' avoids that anything is being done. I just tried '-f'
now, but this didn't bring any audit denied. Will check with my colleague
tomorrow how to reproduce in a non-production environment best :)
Comment 5 Milos Malik 2016-01-14 12:57:51 EST
I believe that's the same problem as described in BZ#1283134. Any logrotate script which runs su directly or indirectly will trigger such AVC.
