Authorizations for the Allocation Commands

By default, users must have the solaris.device.allocate authorization to reserve an allocatable device. To create a rights profile to include the solaris.device.allocate authorization, see How to Authorize Users to Allocate a Device.

Administrators must have the solaris.device.revoke authorization to change the allocation state of any device. For example, the -U option to the allocate and list_devices commands, and the -F option to the deallocate command require the solaris.device.revoke authorization.

For more information, see Commands That Require Authorizations.
