Description Jack Neely 2006-09-21 14:34:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Setting up a RHEL 5 beta 1 machine to read its passwd/group information from
hesiod nscd is not allowed to read the /etc/hesiod.conf file and therefore
cannot lookup hesiod users.

Forcing a relabel by touching /.autorelabel and rebooting the system corrects
the issue.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2006-09-21 16:32:42 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.3.14-7

You can just use restorecon /etc/hesiod.conf
Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2006-10-18 17:59:38 EDT
Adding to beta blocker since meets criteria and is already fixed.
