    setfiles

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           setfiles
    
           [-dnpqvW] [-o filename] [-r alt_root_path ] spec_file pathname...
    
           -c policyfile spec_file
    
           -s [-dnpqvW] [-o filename ] spec_file
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This manual page describes the setfiles program.
    
           This  program  is  primarily  used  to  initialize the security context
           database (extended attributes) on one or more filesystems.   This  pro-
           gram is initially run as part of the SE Linux installation process.
    
           It  can  also  be run at any time to correct errors, to add support for
           new policy, or with the -n option it can just check  whether  the  file
           contexts are all as you expect.
    
           If  a  file  object  does  not  have a context, setfiles will write the
           default context to the file object's extended  attributes.  If  a  file
           object has a context, setfiles will only modify the type portion of the
           security context.  The -F option will force a replacement of the entire
           context.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -c     check  the validity of the contexts against the specified binary
                  policy.
    
           -d     show what specification matched each file.
    
           -l     log changes in file labels to syslog.
    
           -n     don't change any file labels.
    
           -p     show progress by printing * every 1000 files.
    
           -q     suppress non-error output.
    
           -r rootpath
                  use an alternate root path
    
           -e directory
                  directory to exclude (repeat option for  more  than  one  direc-
                  tory.)
    
           -F     Force  reset  of  context to match file_context for customizable
                  files, and the default file context, changing  the  user,  role,
                  range portion as well as the type.
                  which  is  treated  like  any other argument.  Useful when input
                  items might  contain  white  space,  quote   marks,   or   back-
                  slashes.The   GNU  find  -print0  option produces input suitable
                  for this mode.
    
    
    

    ARGUMENTS

           spec_file The specification file which contains lines of the  following
           form
           regexp [ -type ] ( context | <<none>> )
           The  regular  expression  is  anchored at both ends.  The optional type
           field specifies the file type as shown in the mode field by  the  ls(1)
           program, e.g. -- to match only regular files or -d to match only direc-
           tories.  The context can be an ordinary security context or the  string
           <<none>> to specify that the file is not to have its context changed.
           The  last  matching  specification  is used. If there are multiple hard
           links to a file that match different specifications and those  specifi-
           cations  indicate  different  security contexts, then a warning is dis-
           played but the file is still labeled based on the last matching  speci-
           fication other than <<none>>.
    
           pathname...
                  The  pathname  for  the root directory of each file system to be
                  relabeled.  Not used if the -s option is used.
