In this wiki article:


…there is a command down in section 2 that gives an error here on CentOS 7:

    $ sudo semanage fcontext –at samba_share_t /path/to/share
    …noise noise noise… 
    semanage: error: unrecognized arguments: samba_share_t /path/to/share

That and the following restorecon command can be replaced by a single shorter command, which also fixes the symptom:

    $ sudo chcon -R -t samba_share_t /path/to/share
