/usr/sbin/remove_allocatable [-f] -n name
/usr/sbin/remove_allocatable [-f] [-d] -t dev-type
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.
The following options are supported:
Removes system-supplied default attributes of the device type that is specified with -t.
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.
Removes the entry for the device name.
Removes devices of type dev-type.
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:
Invocation syntax error
Unknown system error
