selinux-config-enforcing(8) change /etc/selinux/config to set enforcing or permissive modes


selinux-config-enforcing [permissive]


selinux-config-enforcing this command will modify /etc/selinux/config to specify whether SE Linux should be in enforcing or permissive mode on boot. This may be overridden by the "enforcing=" kernel command-line option (which takes the value 0 for permissive and 1 for enforcing). The parameter "0" or "permissive" will cause it to set permissive mode, any other parameter will result in enforcing mode being set.
