Description Loulwa Salem 2007-03-05 12:23:08 EST
Note: I am opening this bug on behalf of Emily Ratliff <emilyr@us.ibm.com>

Description of problem:
amtu is a required package for Common Criteria certification. 
amtu -n is currently failing when the system is in enforcing mode with the MLS 
policy when run as root in the sysadm_r role. A policy that transitions amtu 
to its own domain with the required privileges is attached.
