Comment 3 Milos Malik 2012-06-25 07:28:55 EDT
No AVCs appeared even if I used start, stop, restart actions.
Comment 4 Miroslav Grepl 2012-06-25 08:12:29 EDT
Could we treat it with rhsmcertd policy?

# chcon -t rhsmcertd_exec_t `which rhnsd`
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 04:18:58 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 21:57:05 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

It seems so. I see no AVCs after "service rhnsd restart".
Comment 8 Milos Malik 2012-07-17 07:42:56 EDT
... and the daemon runs as rhsmcertd_t in enforcing mode.

Users tend to not care about running. They care about serving.
