selinux question(s) (/home really = /n/home..)

So, I have an environment, where we pull user data/auth from ldap/kerberos for a bunch of fedora workstations. I would love to have selinux turned on on these, but, right now it jsut doesn't work with our setup.

See, your users home directories are in a few different places. for the most part, LDAP think their home is at /n/home, or /n/data/home. So, i have /home bind mounted to those locations, and, sith selinux off, its all nice and happy. Another weird thing, is that /home is local on these workstations, so when a user sits at a workstation for the first time, an empty homedir must be created. We hope to move to nfs /home soon, but not yet.

once i turn it on, however, users cannot log in, and the home directoies cannot be created. I get selinux messages like:


SELinux is preventing sshd (sshd_t) "create" to ./nichols2 (home_root_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by sshd. It is not expected that this access is
required by sshd and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./nichols2,

restorecon -v './nichols2'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

Thats for an ssh login attempt. I get the same for one via GDM. I've tried adding "context=system_r:object_r:home_root_t" when i bind mount the /home on /n/home etc, and no luck so far. do I need to relabel /n ? what/how should I? any help would be awesome.
