SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/getsebool from 'read' accesses on the directory booleans.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that getsebool should be allowed read access on the booleans directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep /usr/sbin/getsebool /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2011-01-10 13:42:29 EST
cobbler should not do that.
Comment 2 Šimon Lukašík 2011-05-23 05:02:22 EDT
I think this is duplicate of bug 617573.
The reproducer is a 'cobbler check' command with selinux enabled.
