  • You should decide whether you want to run SELinux on system instances and enable or disable it before installing additional software on the instance.

    Enabling or disabling SELinux on an instance needs a restart of the instance.

    To view whether SELinux is enabled on an instance, run: sestatus

  • To enable SELinux on the system instances, you need to use a Docker storage driver that SELinux supports.

    The storage drivers that SELinux supports differ depending on the Linux distribution you're using. For more information, see the Docker documentation.
