I needed more space in the /var tree on a VM so I allocated some, booted in to runlevel 1 and copied over the folder to the new space. After changing the fstab entry for /var to reflect the new location I rebooted.
(you can see what's coming)
The boot process was pretty well mangled. I had to disable selinux to get anything working properly.
Given the nature of this system I would like to reenable selinux but I'm not clear how to get it all setup properly. Looking at the perms using
ls -Z it all appears the same (as the original /var folder) but clearly something is amiss.
What step(s) did I miss?
EDIT: This is the (relevant) output of
ls -alZ /:
drwxr-xr-x root root ? var drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:var_t:s0 var.old
Looks like a promising avenue - though I note that /sys, /dev and /proc all have '?' there.
