NetLabel configuration utility


netlabelctl reset| load


The NetLabel configuration utility, netlabel-config, is a script designed to make it easier for system administratiors to create, manage, and use complex NetLabel configurations.  The netlabel-config script uses the netlabelctl(8) tool and /etc/netlabel.rules configuration file to load a saved NetLabel configuration into the kernel and reset the kernel's NetLabel configuration to the default state when needed.


Removes any NetLabel configuration loaded into the kernel and resets the kernel's NetLabel state to the default.


Loads the NetLabel configuration specified by /etc/netlabel.rules into the kernel.
