Description Anthony Messina 2007-04-14 10:58:18 EDT
Description of problem:
On a Samba domain controller, SElinux wasnt to deny the routine (every 15
minute) broadcasts from nmbd to port 139.

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

How reproducible:
Each time, every 15 minutes.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up Samba domain controller with domain member servers
Actual results:
avc: denied { name_connect } for comm="nmbd" dest=139 egid=0 euid=0
exe="/usr/sbin/nmbd" exit=-115 fsgid=0 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 pid=11070
scontext=root:system_r:nmbd_t:s0 sgid=0 subj=root:system_r:nmbd_t:s0 suid=0
tclass=tcp_socket tcontext=system_u:object_r:smbd_port_t:s0 tty=(none) uid=0

Expected results:
SELinux should allow nmbd to access to port 139 for WINS

Additional info:
This denial does ot occur on my non-domain controllers (my domain member servers).
