Steps to reproduce:
setenforce 1

type=AVC msg=audit(1637662585.880:491): avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=1665 comm="smbcontrol" scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:smbcontrol_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:smbcontrol_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=netlink_route_socket permissive=0

It works with setenforce 0 and on previous samba versions
Comment 1 Alexander Bokovoy 2021-11-23 11:52:26 UTC
Denis, this bug needs to be opened against selinux-policy project, not Samba. Samba does not own nor handle SELinux policy on its own. Instead, it relies on the selinux-policy project to provide common policy.

Ok, there is no bug for Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2025931, we can close this one.
