Did you do what the error message told you to do?

However, while (on RHEL6) there is a 'samba_create_home_dirs' SElinux boolean, 
there doesn't seem to be one for ssh (but with SELinux enabled, ssh can create 
home dirs here IIRC).

You may want to file a bug with your distribution. And then turn SELinux off 
if you don't absolutely require it.
