Description Don Swaner 2013-03-02 15:05:45 UTC
Description of problem:
Presumably this happened when I was using hostnamectl to set the hostname on a new FC18 install.  I set the pretty and static names with separate calls to hostnamectl.
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-hostnamed from 'unlink' accesses on the file hostname.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow systemd-hostnamed to have unlink access on the hostname file
Then you need to change the label on hostname
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'hostname'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: . 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v 'hostname'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that systemd-hostnamed should be allowed unlink access on the hostname 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 systemd-hostnam /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
