Thanks for the prompt response.
The reason I brought this thread alive is because I see a lot of denials
after removing the unconfined type and doing a fixfiles && reboot and as
They are many resources that have acquired unlabeled_t and hence we see a
lot of denials.
So based on this I would like to ask when exactly should we have the
reboot after executing fixfiles. Should the reboot be immediate after we
have removed the unconfined type or can it wait for a later time.

If you have any files that are owned by unconfined_u they will become
unlabeled_t and not able to be used by confined domains, which is why the
relabel is required.
