Are you seeing this AVC mesages generated in enforcing mode?

These messages usually show up in permissive mode. 

Clear you log files before starting snmpd and turn enforcing on and see if any
AVC messages are generated?


Comment 2 Rob Kearey 2005-04-25 23:32:03 UTC
Yes, you're right, sorry - I was seeing this in permissive mode. I'll retest today.
