Description Jack Tanner 2007-06-26 03:34:45 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/nmbd (nmbd_t) "rename" access to nmbd.log

Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/nmbd. It is not expected that this
access is required by /usr/sbin/nmbd and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access. Please file a bug report
against this package.

Allowing Access
Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for nmbd.log, restorecon -v nmbd.log. There is
currently no automatic way to allow this access. Instead, you can generate a
local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ - or you can disable SELinux
protection entirely for the application. Disabling SELinux protection is not
recommended. Please file a bug report against this package. Changing the
"nmbd_disable_trans" boolean to true will disable SELinux protection this
application: "setsebool -P nmbd_disable_trans=1."

The following command will allow this access:
setsebool -P nmbd_disable_trans=1
