The install instructions indicate that SELinux needs to be set to permissive mode, what is the reasoning behind disabling SELinux? This is something we would like to avoid implementing.

Hi Deevan,
I honestly don't know! We don't use Red Hat or SELinux much here, so the published instructions represent what I did to get it working on a test machine, incorporating some feedback from other institutions running the tool on SELinux. If you can try not setting permissive mode, and let me know if it works or what problems you encounter, I'd really appreciate the help.
