Description todd_lewis 2011-09-06 14:19:22 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/saslauthd from 'ioctl' accesses on the file /proc/fs/openafs/afs_ioctl.

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

If you believe that saslauthd should be allowed ioctl access on the afs_ioctl file 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 saslauthd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
