Description Stef Walter 2012-10-15 01:11:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to reset the selinux context for AccountsService:

[stef@stef-redhat realmd]$ sudo restorecon -v /var/lib/AccountsService/users/
[sudo] password for stef: 

This occurred while joining a domain with realmd, which restarts accounts-daemon.

kernel:         3.6.1-1.fc18.x86_64

:SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/accounts-daemon from 'write' accesses on the directory users.
:
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:
:If you want to allow accounts-daemon to have write access on the users directory
:Then you need to change the label on users
:Do
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'users'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: xdm_etc_t, var_lib_t, accountsd_var_lib_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v 'users'
:
:
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:
:If you believe that accounts-daemon should be allowed write access on the users directory by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:Do
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep accounts-daemon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
