Description of problem:

Getting the following messages in permissive mode.  Not sure what the impact
would be under enforcing.

audit(1108686194.845:0): avc:  denied  { net_admin } for  pid=2656
exe=/sbin/ypbind capability=12 scontext=user_u:system_r:ypbind_t

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-03-08 14:27:42 EST
Do you see them in enforcing mode?  If not they are probably being 
prevented by some other access denial.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2005-03-08 19:09:36 EST
I'm seeing the following in enforcing mode:

type=KERNEL msg=audit(1110325425.073:11245429): avc:  denied  {
net_admin } for  pid=6797exe=/usr/sbin/httpd capability=12
scontext=root:system_r:httpd_t tcontext=root:system_r:httpd_t
type=KERNEL msg=audit(1110325433.245:11248486): avc:  denied  {
net_admin } for  pid=2680exe=/sbin/ypbind capability=12
scontext=user_u:system_r:ypbind_t tcontext=user_u:system_r:ypbind_t

It hasn't caused any problems that I can see - everything seems to
work.  Not sure what triggers the messages.

This is with selinux-policy-targeted-1.21.15-6 now.
