I'm having trouble to active SELinux on our RHEL 6 Linux system.
We have some sort of special installation framework (cobbler and puppet)

SELinux status: disabled
You can override this on the kernel command line using 'selinux=0' so
worth looking in /boot/grub/grub.conf
tgl90a-8401 root:/etc/init $ cat /etc/selinux/config
# 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 - No SELinux policy is loaded.
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
# targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
# mls - Multi Level Security protection.
Also worth checking that /etc/sysconfig/selinux is a symlink to
/etc/selinux/config or if it's a hard link then check the inode numbers
are the same.
The only thing I can see is:
tgl90a-8401 root:/etc/init $ cat /var/log/messages
Jun 13 13:41:30 tgl90a-8401 kernel: SELinux: Initializing.
Does anybody know if I need additional packages on the system or any
special setting set?
If tried "permissive" mode with /.autorelable - which didn't
It's /.autorelabel not /.autorelable and only takes effect on a reboot
(which you didn't explicitly mention doing though I presume you did).
