Description Matěj Cepl 2009-09-25 04:36:08 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing /sbin/lvm "write" access on dm-3.

Podrobný popis:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

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

Povolení přístupu:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

audit2allow suggests:

#============= lvm_t ==============
allow lvm_t svirt_image_t:blk_file write;

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-25 14:55:33 UTC
Was lvm trying to write to a running vm?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2009-10-20 22:39:57 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.32-30.fc12.noarch
