incorrect SELinux context on /etc/nsswitch.conf
Last modified: 2012-07-27 16:04:27 EDT
Description of problem:
There is an incorrect SELinux context on file /etc/nsswitch.conf which, strangely, prevents PostgreSQL database to start listening on localhost:5432.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL-5.8 updated to latest
4 of 4 cases
Steps to Reproduce:
1. provision RHEL5.8 and apply available updates
2. # ls -Z /etc/nsswitch.conf
Please check the selinux context on /etc. This kind of problem showed up somewhere else recently and an incorrect context on /etc was the root cause.
