semanage command not found in CentOS 7
semanage command not found in CentOS 7

When I was drafting an article about the installation of MongoDB on CentOS, I had to run semanage command to make a change in SELinux policy to allow us access to MongoDB on port 27017.

semanage port -a -t mongod_port_t -p tcp 27017

To my surprise, I got an error.

-bash: semanage: command not found

semanage is used to configure certain parts of SELinux policy without requiring modification to or recompilation from policy sources.

This small post will help you to install the necessary packages for getting semanage command. Let us see which package provides us ifconfig command using the YUM command.

yum whatprovides semanage

OR

yum provides *bin/semanage

From the above command output, you can see that policycoreutils-python package provides you semanage command. Now, install the policycoreutils-python package using the YUM command.

yum -y install policycoreutils-python
