:SELinux is preventing NetworkManager from 'getattr' accesses on the file /etc/sysctl.conf.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that NetworkManager should be allowed getattr access on the sysctl.conf 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 NetworkManager /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
