Description Matěj Cepl 2012-12-09 03:00:18 EST
z-push (http://z-push.sourceforge.net/) is a server providing protocols of Microsoft Exchange Active Sync for some open source platforms (namely, Zarafa). It is distributed in rpmfusion.

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/logrotate from read access on the directory z-push.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that logrotate should be allowed read access on the z-push directory 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 logrotate /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Yes we labeled it as httpd_log_t which would fix this issue. But then there was a problem with httpd+write to this log file instead of append.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 15:33:29 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 4 Lukas Vrabec 2013-10-24 13:19:27 EDT
$ audit2allow -i avc 

#============= logrotate_t ==============

#!!!! This avc is allowed in the current policy
allow logrotate_t httpd_sys_rw_content_t:dir read;
