OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for deallocate (opensolaris section 1)

deallocate(1)				  User Commands 			    deallocate(1)

       deallocate - device deallocation

       deallocate [-s] [-w] [-F] [-z zonename]
	    [-c dev-class | -g dev-type | device]

       deallocate [-s] [-w] [-F] [-z zonename] -I

       The  deallocate command frees an allocated device. It resets the ownership and permissions
       on all device special files associated with the device, disabling access to  that  device.
       deallocate  runs  the device cleaning program for that device as specified in device_allo-

       The default deallocate operation deallocates devices allocated to the user.

       The following options are supported:

       -c dev-class    Deallocates all devices of the specified device class.

       -F device       Forces deallocation of the device associated with the  file  specified  by
		       device.	Only  a user with the solaris.device.revoke authorization is per-
		       mitted to use this option.

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

       -s	       Silent. Suppresses any diagnostic output.

       The following options are supported when the system is configured with Trusted Extensions:

       -g dev-type    Deallocates a device of device type matching dev-type.

       -w	      Runs the device cleaning program in a windowing environment. If a windowing
		      version  of the program exists, it is used. Otherwise, the standard version
		      is run in a terminal window.

       -z zonename    Deallocates device from the zone specified by zonename.

       The following operands are supported:

       device	 Deallocates the specified device.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	      Successful completion.

       20	      No entry for the specified device.

       other value    An error occurred.

       Controlling Access to Devices

       The functionality described in this man page is available only if   Solaris  Auditing  has
       been enabled. See bsmconv(1M) for more information.

       On systems configured with Trusted Extensions, the functionality is enabled by default.

       /etc/security/dev,  mkdevalloc(1M),  and  mkdevmaps(1M) might not be supported in a future
       release of the Solaris Operating Environment.
