On a default CentOS installation, when trying to execute the
service iptables save command you can get an error like
iptables: Saving firewall rules to /etc/sysconfig/iptables: /etc/init.d/iptables: line 274: restorecon: command not found.
This is fixed easily by installing the
policycoreutils package, which is available in the default CentOS repositories:
yum install policycoreutils
After installation the
service iptables save command works without errors.
