Description Cole Robinson 2013-07-01 17:17:51 UTC
Description of problem:
Run a script which did various 'cobbler distro add' and 'cobbler profile add'
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'read' accesses on the directory cpu.

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

If you believe that python2.7 should be allowed read access on the cpu 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 cobblerd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

#============= cobblerd_t ==============

#!!!! This avc is allowed in the current policy
allow cobblerd_t sysfs_t:dir read;

Please update to the latest policy.
