I'm confused about a situation where I'm getting denied avc messages even
though there is an allow rule in place. What am I missing?

This is on RHEL 5.8 using the targeted policy. Here's an example. I have
this avc message from this morning:

type=AVC msg=audit(1333372681.227:20002): avc: denied { append } for
pid=3480 comm="vsftpd"
path="/LTS/eng-ng/snip/2012/03/20/ STORY_Letters_for_Sun._3-4_1_66_610389Z/ IMG_Cartoon_for_3-4.jpg_1_1_8F1363GR/ IMG_Cartoon_for_3-4.jpg_1_1_8F1363GR.xml"

dev=dm-8 ino=227640612 scontext=system_u:system_r:ftpd_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:object_r:public_content_t:s0 tclass=file

but when I do sesearch it shows a matching allow rule:

# sesearch -s ftpd_t -t public_content_t -c file -p append -a Found 1 av
rules: allow ftpd_t public_content_t : file { ioctl read write create
getattr setattr lock append unlink link rename };

Found 5 role allow rules: allow system_r sysadm_r ; allow user_r sysadm_r ; allow user_r system_r ; allow sysadm_r user_r ; allow sysadm_r system_r

Thanks for any help you can give, Maria

If you want to make this work, you should label the content as
public_content_rw_t and then turn on allow_ftpd_anon_write boolean.

man ftpd_selinux

Thank you and will do!
