Summary0014571: bash does not have an access to /etc/vmware
DescriptionSELinux is preventing /usr/bin/bash from search access on the directory /etc/vmware.

***** Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests **************************

If you believe that bash should be allowed search access on the vmware directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'bash' --raw | audit2allow -M my-bash
# semodule -i my-bash.pp
