After you apply a license, you see the following in /var/log/audit/auditd.log: type=AVC msg=audit(1469642592.548:489): avc: denied { relabelto } for pid=6908 comm="mcpd" name="bigip.license.chs600493s" dev=dm-10 ino=25 scontext=system_u:system_r:mcpd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:tmp_t:s0 tclass=file.


The errors are benign and can be safely ignored.


This may be seen when licensing or during reactivation of a license.


None needed. This is a cosmetic error.
