How to install semanage on CentOS 7

When you are configuring SSH in order to change default port 22 into some random number, you will probably be prompted with an error that says: semanage command not found. This is quick way to successfully change SSH port.

Try these two following commands:

# yum provides /usr/sbin/semanage
# yum whatprovides /usr/sbin/semanage

From the output, we see that policycore-utils-python-utils provides this package. Install the policycoreutils-python-utils package:

# yum install policycoreutils-python-utils
# yum install policycoreutils-python

You now successfully can use semanage command on your CentOS 7.
