Description Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2013-04-15 02:07:15 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/systemctl from 'open' accesses on the file /run/utmp.

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

If you believe that systemctl should be allowed open access on the utmp 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 runlevel /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
