Description Brad Hess 2008-04-15 10:28:19 EDT
Description of problem:

Message log is generating an error that states:

"setroubleshoot:      SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/nmbd 
(nmbd_t) "name_connect" access to <Unknown>"

setroubleshoot instructed me to run the command:

"run sealert -l 887f9ccb-e7c0-4954-bfe4-918820a05e38"

This command instructed me that I should file a bugzilla report.

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

This is not a Samba bug but a SELinux policy bug which has been fixed quite a while ago.
