After rebooting a BoKS host running BoKS v6.7 or v7.0 with SELinux activated, login with ssh stops working.

Resolution / Workaround

In order to use SELinux in enforcing mode with BoKS v6.7, hotfix HFBM-0038 must be installed.

BoKS may have been started in the wrong context if /etc/rc.d/init.d/boksm has the wrong file context set.

Simply restarting BoKS with the Boot command should restart boks_sshd in the correct SELinux context, but to make sure BoKS is started correctly at the next reboot the file context needs to be corrected with:
restorecon /etc/rc.d/init.d/boksm
