The SELinux settings are contained in "/etc/sysconfig/selinux". I have
SELinux disabled, and the file looks like this:
[root at server ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/selinux
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.
Note that any changes to this file require a reboot to take affect.
"sestatus" can then be used to verify the change:
[root at server ~]# sestatus
SELinux status: disabled
