:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge from 'write' accesses on the file /etc/vmware/networking.
:*****  Plugin restorecon (93.9 confidence) suggests  *************************
:If you want to fix the label. 
:/etc/vmware/networking default label should be vmware_sys_conf_t.
:Then you can run restorecon.
:# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/vmware/networking
:*****  Plugin leaks (6.10 confidence) suggests  ******************************
:If you want to ignore vmnet-bridge trying to write access the networking file, because you believe it should not need this access.
:Then you should report this as a bug.  
:You can generate a local policy module to dontaudit this access.
:# grep /usr/bin/vmnet-bridge /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -D -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.43 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that vmnet-bridge should be allowed write access on the networking 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 vmnet-bridge /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
