Description of problem:

SELinux is preventing chronyc from 'write' accesses on the directory chrony.

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


How reproducible:

when chrony logrotate /var/log/audit/audit.log output these messages.

# ausearch -i -m avc
type=PROCTITLE msg=audit(2018年04月08日 03:22:01.353:1979) : proctitle=/usr/bin/chronyc cyclelogs

Expected results:

Why output the denied {write} messages.

Additional info:

I found the Related bug ticket in Fedora.

Does comment#2 really belong to this bug? This bug is about chronyc executed from logrotate.
