:SELinux is preventing /sbin/dhclient from 'getattr' accesses on the file /run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf.
:*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************
:If you want to fix the label. 
:/run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf default label should be NetworkManager_var_run_t.
:Then you can run restorecon.
:# /sbin/restorecon -v /run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that dhclient should be allowed getattr access on the nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf 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 dhclient /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

# /sbin/restorecon -v /run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf

Are you able to reproduce it if you fix this using restorecon.

Yes, I had to use a custom policy for a workaround. The bug report was primarily due to this occurring for the first time after a reboot, with no known system change. I actually think the problem has something to do with NetworkManager, so I'm glad it's already set to closed. I forgot to change this yesterday.
