:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from using the 'dac_override' capabilities.
:*****  Plugin dac_override (91.4 confidence) suggests  ***********************
:If you want to help identify if domain needs this access or you have a file with the wrong permissions on your system
:Then turn on full auditing to get path information about the offending file and generate the error again.
:Turn on full auditing
:# auditctl -w /etc/shadow -p w
:Try to recreate AVC. Then execute
:# ausearch -m avc -ts recent
:If you see PATH record check ownership/permissions on file, and fix it, 
:otherwise report as a bugzilla.
:*****  Plugin catchall (9.59 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that python2.7 should have the dac_override capability 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 system-config-k /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
