Tried just the selinux list yesterday, no answers, so I’m trying again.
I partitioned GPT, and formatted, as xfs, a large (3TB) drive on a CentOS
6 system, which has selinux in permissive mode. I then moved the drive to a CentOS 5 system. When we run a copy (it mirror-copies from another system), we get a ton of errors. I discovered that the CentOS 5 system was enforcing. I changed it to permissive, I labelled the directories and files w/ semanage, did a restorecon, and even did a fixfiles, and *then* I
tried /.autorelabel and rebooted, and we still get a ton of errors:
Jun 1 17:01:32 kernel: inode_doinit_with_dentry:
context_to_sid(unconfined_u:object_r:file_t:s0) returned 22 for dev=sdd1
I had to reboot to disabled to get it to shut up.
So: is there something that selinux does in CentOS 6 that is in the labelling on the xfs filesystem that I can do something about on the CentOS 5 system, or do I just have to leave selinux disabled (until, maybe in the next year, we can rebuild to 7….)?
