That's odd - I haven't seen that one. I trust that service auditd status
shows it running. That's all I can think of.

No, you said you're just starting as an admin, and there's a lot to learn.
Trust me, the first system I was an admin on, back in the mid-nineties, I
was sleeping with the Fraesch Essential Systems Administration, as well as
my late wife; the upside was that when the corporate sysadmins were
brought in, almost a year later, my server was one of *two* that were
normal, out of 27 projects....

And back then, I didn't have to worry about selinux (bleah!).

Yep, I'm so new I just started last September and just when I think I've finally conquered one thing....I get hit with several fast curve balls.
Sounds like your sleepless nights paid off in the corporate arena.....one of two - very impressive.

Yes, I checked and service auditd status shows it is running.
