Description avignon 2011-08-23 11:06:20 UTC
SELinux is preventing /sbin/setfiles from 'getattr' accesses on the filesystem /sys.

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

If you believe that setfiles should be allowed getattr access on the sys filesystem 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 restorecon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
