:SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'search' accesses on the directory /lib/systemd/system.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that bash should be allowed search access on the system 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 service /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Happened when I pushed apply in system-config-kdump. Apparently it tried to call:

$ /sbin/chkconfig kdump on
