Description of problem:

After last package update I could not mount any nfs share. Logs
say that local rpcbind server cannot be contacted and there are
AVC denials appearing around.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setenforce 1
2. service rpcbind start

Actual results:
Snip from /var/log/messages:
setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing rpcbind (rpcbind_t) "setgid" rpcbind_t
kernel: RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 512).
kernel: RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).
kernel: lockd_up: makesock failed, error=-5
kernel: rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out

Expected results:
mounting nfs share works

SELinux is preventing rpcbind (rpcbind_t) "setgid" rpcbind_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by rpcbind. It is not expected that this access
is required by rpcbind 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.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

Comment 1 Petr Šplíchal 2008-12-16 04:19:33 EST
Oh, only now I discovered already closed bug for this issue --- bug #472917.
But why have we pushed rpcbind out before this was fixed? And we knew about the problem...

This should not be pushed to stable until selinux-policy-targeted-3.3.1-115.fc9 has been pushed to stable.
