     setfsmac — set MAC label for a file hierarchy

     setfsmac [-ehqvx] [-f specfile] ... [-s specfile] ... file ...

     The setfsmac utility accepts a list of specification files as input and
     sets the MAC labels on the specified file system hierarchies.  Path names
     specified will be visited in order as given on the command line, and each
     tree will be traversed in pre-order.  (Generally, it will not be very
     useful to use relative paths instead of absolute paths.)  Multiple
     entries matching a single file will be combined and applied in a single

     The following options are available:

     -e	     Treat any file systems encountered which do not support MAC
	     labelling as errors, instead of warning and skipping them.

     -f specfile
	     Apply the specifications in specfile to the specified paths.
	     NOTE: Only the first entry for each file is applied; all others
	     are disregarded and silently dropped.  Multiple -f arguments may
	     be specified to include multiple specification files.

     -h	     When a symbolic link is encountered, change the label of the link
	     rather than the file the link points to.

     -q	     Do not print non-fatal warnings during execution.

     -s specfile
	     Apply the specifications in specfile, but assume the specifica‐
	     tion format is compatible with the SELinux specfile format.
	     NOTE: Only the first entry for each file is applied; all others
	     are disregarded and silently dropped.  The prefix “sebsd/” will
	     be automatically prepended to the labels in specfile.  Labels
	     matching “<<none>>” will be explicitly not relabeled.  This per‐
	     mits SEBSD to reuse existing SELinux policy specification files.

     -v	     Increase the degree of verbosity.

     -x	     Do not recurse into new file systems when traversing them.
