Description of problem:

SELinux policy appears to prevent automount from mounting.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Edit /etc/hosts.allow, /etc/hosts.deny, /etc/hosts, /etc/exports to allow NFS and autofs to mount.
2.  Try listing 'ls /net/some_host_name/'
3.  Observe an SELinux warning and open it.

Actual results:

The SELinux warning says:

The source process: /usr/bin/automount
Attempted this access: read
On this file: /etc/hosts

Expected results:

I expect the above 'ls' command to produce a directory listing for valid hosts that have exported filesystems.

Additional info:

Disabling SELinux in /etc/selinux/config allows automount to work.  I checked for updates just now, and my system is up to date.  It looks like Red Hat Bugzilla Bug ID 197089 from 2006 is quite a bit like this one.

You can switch to permissive mode using

# setenforce 0

then re-test it and execute

# auseearch -m avc -ts recent

which will show us AVC msgs which we need to see.
