NAME

deallocate - device deallocation

SYNOPSIS

deallocate [ -s ] device deallocate [ -s ] [ -F ] device deallocate [ -s ] -I

DESCRIPTION

deallocate deallocates a device allocated to the evoking user. device can be a device defined in device_allocate(4) or one of the device special files associated with the dev- ice. It resets the ownership and the permission on all dev- ice special files associated with device, disabling the user's access to that device. This option can be used by an authorized user to remove access to the device by another user. The required authorization is solaris.device.allocate. When deallocation or forced deallocation is performed, the appropriate device cleaning program is executed, based on the contents of device_allocate(4). These cleaning pro- grams are normally stored in /etc/security/lib.

Only a user with the solaris.devices.revoke authorization is permitted to use this option. -I Force deallocation of all allocatable devices. Only a user with the solaris.devices.revoke authorization is permitted to use this option. This option should only be used at system initialization.
