How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. useradd -Z guest_u testuser
2. passwd testuser
3. ssh-copy-id testuser@localhost
Actual results:
Permission denied (ssh-copy-id)/No error msg with ssh. AVC in description.

Expected results:
No denial.

Additional info:
I think something may be missing from the log?
Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-05-02 04:32:15 EDT
Just try to switch to permissive mode for all AVC msgs. We don't allow guest_t to send log messages.
Comment 2 Miroslav Vadkerti 2012-05-02 05:07:47 EDT
I think it is the only one, though I can recheck
Comment 9 Miroslav Grepl 2012-05-08 14:02:16 EDT
