Comment 6 Anush Shetty 2012-10-23 08:35:42 EDT
On RHEL 6.3 hypervisor, we updated the selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted rpm and the enabled the sanlock_use_fusefs and virt_use_fusefs booleans. With selinux in enforcing mode, we were able to create VMs and migrate VMs. So moving this bug to verified.
    [root@rhs-gp-srv2 ~]# getsebool -a | grep fusefs
    samba_share_fusefs --> off
    sanlock_use_fusefs --> on
    use_fusefs_home_dirs --> off
    virt_use_fusefs --> on
    [root@rhs-gp-srv2 ~]# sestatus
    SELinux status:                 enabled
    SELinuxfs mount:                /selinux
    Current mode:                   enforcing
    Mode from config file:          enforcing
    Policy version:                 24
    Policy from config file:        targeted
    [root@rhs-gp-srv2 ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i selinux
