Description Loulwa Salem 2007-03-05 17:23:08 UTC
Note: I am opening this bug on behalf of Emily Ratliff <>

Description of problem:
amtu is a required package for Common Criteria certification. 
amtu -n is currently failing when the system is in enforcing mode with the MLS 
policy when run as root in the sysadm_r role. A policy that transitions amtu 
to its own domain with the required privileges is attached.

Machine Type = Failure occurs on all architectures.
---Steps to Reproduce---
Install RHEL5 and configure in LSPP mode with SELinux enforcing the MLS 
Log on as root, newrole -r sysadm_r, execute amtu -n.

# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
