Summary0018489: SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/mongod from 'search' accesses on the cartella /sys/fs/cgroup.
DescriptionDescription of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/mongod from 'search' accesses on the cartella /sys/fs/cgroup.

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

Se ci credi mongod dovrebbe essere consentito search accesso al cgroup directory per impostazione predefinita.
Then si dovrebbe riportare il problema come bug.
E' possibile generare un modulo di politica locale per consentire questo accesso.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'mongod' --raw | audit2allow -M my-mongod
# semodule -i my-mongod.pp

Please try to relabel the folder where mongod is located:
restorecon -Rv /usr/bin

If this does not solve your problem, you could open a ticket at But since RHEL 7 is in maintenance mode and mongo is not provided by RH, most probably your request will be rejected
