Description Dominick Grift 2011-09-29 15:00:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When i run useradd -Z staff_u domg472:

/usr/sbin/semanage: Linux User domg472 does not exist
useradd: warning: the user name domg472 to staff_u SELinux user mapping failed.

I end up without a Linux user, but with a home dir and mail spool for that to be created Linux user.

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

How reproducible:
useradd -Z staff_u joe

Steps to Reproduce:
1. useradd -Z staff_u joe
Actual results:
/usr/sbin/semanage: Linux User joe does not exist
useradd: warning: the user name joe to staff_u SELinux user mapping failed.

It looks like an useradd issue.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2011-09-30 10:45:00 EDT
Yes I know this issue was fixed somewhere.  Basically libsemanage is verifying the user exists before the user is added to /etc/passwd.
