selinux on Ubuntu server

Hi All,

Please can someone assist me on this, I enabled Selinux on Ubuntu 14.04 server and it's disabling ssh remote login for all users including root.

From the ssh terminal I get the following error:

ssh root@192.168.x.x
Last login: Wed Mar 25 12:39:02 2015 from 192.168.x.x
/bin/bash: Permission denied
Connection to closed.

tail /var/log/auth.log

ubuntu sshd[1640]: Accepted password for root from 192.168.x.x port 51082 ssh2

ubuntu sshd[1642]: Accepted password for root from 192.168.x.x port 51089 ssh2

ubunt sshd[1640]: Received disconnect from 192.168.x.x: disconnected by user

audit2allow --all


This avc is a constraint violation. you would need to modify the attribute of either the source or target types to allow this access.

possible cause is the source user (system_u) and target user (unconfined_u) are different.

possible cause is the source role (system_r) and target role (unconfined_r) are different.

possible cause is the source level (s0) and target level (s0-s0:c0.c255) are different.

allow sshd_t unconfined_trocess transition.

Please how can I make this changes to take effect.

Thanks in advance.

Did you check selinux boolean settings using:

getsebool -a | grep -i ssh
