Managing Device Allocation (Task Map)

The following task map points to procedures that enable and configure device allocation. Device allocation is not enabled by default. After device allocation is enabled, see Allocating Devices (Task Map).

For Instructions
Make a device allocatable
Enables a device to be allocated to one user at a time.
Authorize users to allocate a device
Assigns device allocation authorizations to users.
View the allocatable devices on your system
Lists the devices that are allocatable, and the state of the device.
Forcibly allocate a device
Allocates a device to a user who has an immediate need
Forcibly deallocate a device
Deallocates a device that is currently allocated to a user
Change the allocation properties of a device
Changes the requirements for allocating a device
Create a device-clean script
Purges data from a physical device.
Disable device allocation
Removes allocation restrictions from all devices.
Audit device allocation
