Description Daniel Demus 2013-05-29 23:27:08 UTC
Description of problem:
libreswan has recently replaced openswan
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/bash from read, open access on the file /usr/bin/systemctl.

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

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