This looks like you have nscd running as initrc_t?  Which would be wrong.  You
could have a labeling problem.

ps -eZ | grep nscd

To fix labeling problems you can execute 

touch /.autorelabel; reboot

Please attach the avc messages from /var/log/audit/audit.log

ausearch -m avc  

will gather them

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-03-19 21:22:37 UTC
Looks like nscd is mislabeled.

# matchpathcon /usr/sbin/nscd
/usr/sbin/nscd	system_u:object_r:nscd_exec_t:s0

If it does not have this label

# restorecon /usr/sbin/nscd
# service nscd restart

Should fix it.
