Description of problem:
more info is at https://fedorahosted.org/pipermail/cluster-commits/2011-March/001843.html

I don't see AVCs as a result of this move now, but they could appear in the future depending on what actions will be performed on that file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
# matchpathcon /var/lib/cluster/fence_scsi.key 
/var/lib/cluster/fence_scsi.key system_u:object_r:cluster_var_lib_t:s0
# matchpathcon /var/run/cluster/fence_scsi.key 
/var/run/cluster/fence_scsi.key system_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0

Who needs to access to this file?

The fence_scsi agent (/usr/sbin/fence_scsi) and potentially the fence_scsi_check watchdog script.

Comment 5 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-20 12:44:16 UTC
does it cause an issue? Does it work with SELinux in enforing mode?

I have not seen any issues, but QE needs to give the official answer here.

Comment 8 Ryan O'Hara 2011-09-26 15:19:38 UTC
I encountered no issues when testing on RHEL6.2.

Note that the files created in /var/run/cluster/ by fence_scsi get the following context in my test:

# ls -Z /var/run/cluster/
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:fenced_var_run_t:s0 fence_scsi.dev
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:fenced_var_run_t:s0 fence_scsi.key

That does not match what is reported in comment #1.

Comment 9 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-26 16:19:57 UTC
Yes, this is ok. But I need to add labeling for it. I didn't realize we have a transition rule for /var/run/cluster directory.

But the /var/run/cluster/fence directory would be nice.
