Description Milos Malik 2012-04-05 08:53:46 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #809877 +++

Description of problem:
I believe that the problem manifests itself on various log files, not just kerberos* ones

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

How reproducible:

Actual results:
# matchpathcon /var/log/k*
/var/log/kadmind.log    system_u:object_r:kadmind_log_t:s0
/var/log/kadmind.log.1  system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0
/var/log/kadmind.log.2  system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0
/var/log/krb5kdc.log    system_u:object_r:krb5kdc_log_t:s0
/var/log/krb5kdc.log.1  system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0
/var/log/krb5kdc.log.2  system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0

Expected results:
* each file that was processed by logrotate should be labelled the same way as before it was processed by logrotate
