I have to set SELinux
setenforce Permissive in order to give access to my samba share. I wonder if there is proper way to configure SELinux policy for fedora 17 as good admins do.
you would need to use
setsebool which will tell selinux to allow certain activities.
but first do this:
/usr/sbin/getsebool -a | grep samba
to see if selinux is already allowing samba activity.
if it isn't, here are some examples of what i would use (if i used selinux):
/usr/sbin/setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dir on /usr/sbin/setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
or something comparable depending on what your goal is with how strict you are trying to make it
alternatively you can use
system-config-selinux and check the options pertaining to samba
