Symptoms

After booting BIG-IP for the first time, you may see a 'denied' message for the lastlog file in /var/log/audit.log: type=AVC msg=audit(1440786377.593:32): avc: denied { read write } for pid=5922 comm="login" name="lastlog" dev=md2 ino=18 scontext=system_u:system_r:local_login_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_log_t:s0 tclass=file.

Impact
