Re: Trouble with syslogd and named

It is possible and even desirable for syslog to be able to create a log device.
Maybe syslogd needs to be patched to set the context of the log device? I think
that's the only flexible solution since an admin could give any path as an
argument to -a.


No if you want to change the file context, you need to use semanage. The problem here is that syslog is not allowed to search through /var/named directories. For this you need custom policy.

Use something like audit2allow -M mysyslog -i /var/log/audit/audit.log to generate the policy.
