Description Jonathan Underwood 2007-06-14 19:38:01 UTC
    SELinux is preventing samba (/usr/sbin/smbd) "append" to
    /var/log/samba/log.smbd (samba_log_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied samba access to /var/log/samba/log.smbd. If you want to share
    this directory with samba it has to have a file context label of
    samba_share_t. If you did not intend to use /var/log/samba/log.smbd as a
    samba repository it could indicate either a bug or it could signal a
    intrusion attempt.

Allowing Access
    You can alter the file context by executing chcon -R -t samba_share_t

    The following command will allow this access:
    chcon -R -t samba_share_t /var/log/samba/log.smbd
