Description John P Masseria 2017-06-06 20:58:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Tried to use machinectl command to shutdown running container using the following command:

sudo machinectl poweroff ubuntu_zesty_1704
SELinux is preventing systemd-machine from using the 'signal' accesses on a process.

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

If you believe that systemd-machine should be allowed signal access on processes labeled unconfined_t 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:
# ausearch -c 'systemd-machine' --raw | audit2allow -M my-systemdmachine
# semodule -X 300 -i my-systemdmachine.pp

Comment 1 John P Masseria 2017-06-06 21:05:57 EDT
The following command resolved the problem:

sudo semodule -i my-systemdmachine.pp

systemdmachine.pp contained:

    module my-systemdmachine 1.0;

    require {
            type systemd_machined_t;
            type unconfined_t;
            class process signal;

    #============= systemd_machined_t ==============
    allow systemd_machined_t unconfined_t:process signal;
