Audit2allow does not allow the cifs complaint to proceed

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When allowing access through file transfer protocol files still get denied
  • Using the setsebool with allow_ftpd_use_cifs operation does not allow file transfer to proceed
  • When attempting a file transfer I receive the following denial:

    type=AVC msg=audit(1477591968.511:896643): avc:  denied  { 0x200000 } for  pid=5122 comm="vsftpd" name="pfra" dev=cifs       ino=28004348 scontext=system_u:system_r:ftpd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:cifs_t:s0 tclass=file
