This time again I stuck with -bash: semanage: command not found on CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7) . I mostly use the minimal installed CentOS/RHEL Servers. I got the same issue with semanage command not found on CentOS 6/RHEL 6
The semanage is SELinux Policy Management tool.
To get semanage command on system, install policycoreutils-python package by using yum command.
yum install policycoreutils-python
And I hope , it will be installed without any problem.
After installation check the semanage command. For more confirmation you can use
which command.It will show absolute path of semanage command.
[root@localhost ~]# which semanage /usr/sbin/semanage [root@localhost ~]#
Basically you should know , why I selected only policycoreutils-python to be installed. I have written about this already in my previous post. would like to suggest this post – yum : how to find rpm package which has certain command or file

Hey buddy, I’ve found very useful info right here in your site. First time I tested a minimal installation, I was fighting with SELinux config and then I came up with your site. Congratulations for your efforts; you have made happy a sysadmin in Mexico. Regards!!
