NAME

SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/remove_allocatable [-f] -n name /usr/sbin/remove_allocatable [-f] [-d] -t dev-type
DESCRIPTION
remove_allocatable removes entries of user allocatable devices from the device allocation mechanism. remove_allocatable also removes entries of some non-allocatable devices, such as printers, whose label range is managed by the mechanism.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -d Removes system-supplied default attributes of the device type that is specified with -t. -f Force the removal of an entry. remove_allocatable exits with an error if this option is not specified when an entry with the specified device name no longer exists. -n name Removes the entry for the device name. -t dev-type Removes devices of type dev-type.
EXIT STATUS
When successful, remove_allocatable returns an exit status of 0 (true). remove_allocatable returns a nonzero exit status in the event of an error. The exit codes are as follows: 1 Invocation syntax error 2 Unknown system error 3 Device name or dev-type not found. This error occurs only when the -f option is not specified. 4 Permission denied.
