Hi Jerry,

Hope that works. If not, I'm suspicious that the file copy
created a file with the wrong (default) SELinux context, which
you could confirm with "ls -lZ", and fix with restorecon.
Also you can run "ausearch --success no --interpret -ts today"
to check the audit log for permissions issues that silently
escape notice.

Hope that helps,
