It seems that with selinux enabled, fencing hangs during 'service cman start'.

When selinux is set to enforcing, the cman startup script hangs at "Starting fencing ...." and never times out.
There are NO logs related to the event in /var/log/audit/audit.log, nor anything telling in /var/log/messages. 'fence_tool dump' also does not provide any further details.

After setting selinux to permissive, fencing starts up without incident.

I'm using the following packages:


Let me know if I can provide any further info.
