DHCP issue on RHEL 6 - setgroups: Operation not permitted


Running RHEL6

I copied my dhcpd.conf from my old server, now when trying to start dhcpd I get the following error in /var/log/messages and the service exits.

Jan 19 13:29:59 pldhcp1 dhcpd:

Looks like this error is the fatal one:
Jan 19 13:29:59 pldhcp1 dhcpd: setgroups: Operation not permitted

Any ideas how to fix this?

It was SELINUX probably because I moved the files from a backup to this machine.

type=AVC msg=audit(1327002869.112:24513): avc: denied { setuid } for pid=23978 comm="dhcpd" capability=7 scontext=unconfined_u:system_r:dhcpd_t:s0 tcontext=unconfined_u:system_r:dhcpd_t:s0 tclass=capability
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1327002869.112:24513): arch=c000003e syscall=105 success=no exit=-1 a0=b1 a1=8 a2=7fff15d5f460 a3=5d9a items=0 ppid=1 pid=23978 auid=500 uid=0 gid=177 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=177 sgid=177 fsgid=177 tty=pts1 ses=10 comm="dhcpd" exe="/usr/sbin/dhcpd" subj=unconfined_u:system_r:dhcpd_t:s0 key=(null)


Created a custom policy with audit2allow like so:
grep "setuid" audit.log | audit2allow -M mydhcpd1920122

then semodule:
semodule -i mydhcpd1920122.pp

Now it fires up fine, even survived a reboot.

Thanks for the help anyway!
