- VirtualBox 5.2.6 on MacOS 10.13.3
- CentOS 7.4 "minimal install" VM with no security policy applied
- three new VMs cloned from the base VM.

500 OOPS: Failed to open xferlog log file: /var/log/xferlog
On the 3rd VM, it works fine. vsftpd is running as root at the moment so it should have no trouble accessing /var/log. All three systems have a /var/log/xferlog, all mode 600, perms root:root.
Disabling the xferlog works around the issue, and I'm guessing it has something to do with SElinux, though I don't understand why it is a problem on two of the VMs, but not the other. They were all cloned from the same source.
