Description Jeremy McKenzie 2007-06-29 21:47:53 UTC
Hi,
     I have just switched to Fedora 7.0; SWAT  will not accept the "root" user id and password via the "localhost:901" browser interface.  I suspect it is not finding the system password file it needs. The swat interface worked fine under fedora 6; I have not configured my fedora 7.o installation any differently. 

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Solved this problem. SELinux firewall was blocking access to the system password files. Solution: temporarily set SELinux to "permissive"; use SWAT; reset SELinux to "enforcing" when done.
