Generally it is a good idea to switch to permissive mode for a full relabel.
Otherwise you might not be permitted to make the changes. Normally that
won't be a problem after minor updates, but if things are to the point where
you want to do a full relabel, it's generally simpler to make sure it will
do all of the work needed rather than have to manually deal with the odd
case here and there.
Thank you - but I'm not sure I fully understand what you're saying. Do
you mean that if I had first switched to permissive mode, that those
errors would not have occurred?
Surely if a particular context is "not valid" there is nothing a relabel
can do - permissive mode or otherwise? Or have I misunderstood?
My question was really:
a) How have I ended up with all of those invalid contexts? and
b) Given that, as far as I can tell, most things seem to work - should I
be concerned about these error messages?
