SELinux Context Not Applied

Hi,

I tried to apply a security context on a directory with the following commands:

[root@ local]# semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t “netdot(/.*)?”
[root@ local]# restorecon -R netdot/

When I list the contexts, it is part of the list….
[root@ local]# semanage fcontext -l | grep netdot
./netdot(/.*)? all files system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_rw_content_t:s0

… but does not appear on the directory itself:
[root@ local]# ls -ldZ netdot/
drwxr-xr-x. root root unconfined_u:object_r:*usr_t*:s0 netdot/

I am expecting to see something like:
drwxr-xr-x. root root unconfined_u:object_r:*httpd_sys_rw_content_t*:s0
netdot/

What am I doing wrong or do not understand?

Thanks,

  • I used the full path and got it working:

    [root@ local]# semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t
    “/usr/local/netdot(/.*)?”
    [root@ local]# restorecon -R /usr/local/netdot/
    [root@ local]# ls -ldZ /usr/local/netdot/
    drwxr-xr-x. root root unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_sys_rw_content_t:s0
    /usr/local/netdot/
