it appears that e2label is not able anymore to label an ext4 FS with this RHEL version at least. A e4label binary exists which should probably be used instead. In that case the / FS was a ext4 FS, whereas /boot was ext3 and was no problem

tested workaround:

After the restore, use the following to relabel your FS:

# mount-me
# chroot /mnt/RESTORING
# e4label /dev/cciss/c0d0p3 /

Adapt the device name to your needs as well as the label.

Should be fixed with rev [3008].

Cf: https://ext4.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Ext4_Howto#For_people_who_are_running_RHEL which gives an explanation why there are different tools there.
