Description Lin Li 2008-01-30 15:38:26 EST
Description of problem:
When samba is configured to synchronize with unix password, selinux prevent
changing samba password with non-root. If selinux is set to permissive, I still
get the same alert, but the password change succeded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
samba version 3.0.25b-0.el5.4

How reproducible:
Constant reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Config samba to sychronize unix password.
2. Set selinux to enforce mode.
3. Su to the user
4. Run "smbpasswd -U user" to change password.

  
Actual results:
Change failed with selinux alert generated.

Expected results:


Additional info:
If turn off "unix password sync", change samba password works.
