Description of problem:
xm_t is not able to search dirs with autofs_t. This prevents virtual machines from being stored on an automounted filesystem.
Can you add the following to the policy?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. coming soon
This custom module is a current workaround:
module mysemanage 1.0.1;
class dir search;
#============= xm_t ==============
allow xm_t autofs_t:dir search;
allow xm_t file_t:dir search;
Added to selinux-policy-2.4.6-281.el5.noarch

Prior to this update, the "xm_t" domain was not allowed to search directories with the "autofs_t" security context. Consequent to this, virtual machines could not be stored on automatically mounted file systems. With this update, the SELinux rules have been adjusted to permit such search, so that the virtual machines can now be stored on an automatically mounted file system as expected.
