    Selinux quota bug?

    I have an issues with quotas and selinux.

    There is a service quotaon.service which should run at boot.
    However it kept failing time and again. I finally figured out that this was due to selinux.

    I tried relabeling at boot, fixfiles relabel, etc. Nothing helped.
    As far as I can see in the logs, the aquota.* files remain unlabeled. Is this a bug or is there any way I tell selinux what label to use?
    The only way I got this to work now is to set selinux to permissive but that is no what I want.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I already spent days trying to figure out quotas due to the lack of proper manuals. But for this last issue I cannot find a solution.

    Re: Selinux quota bug?

    I finally found the answer. You have to set and update the selinux contexts:

    semanage fcontext -a -t quota_db_t /mnt/sdb/aquota.user
    restorecon /mnt/sdb/aquota.user
