Description Lukas Slebodnik 2018-06-16 10:36:02 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ypserv from map access on the file /var/yp/ipatest/group.byname.

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

If you believe that ypserv should be allowed map access on the group.byname file 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 'ypserv' --raw | audit2allow -M my-ypserv
# semodule -i my-ypserv.pp
