When the pkg:/system/device-allocation package is on the system, device allocation can be controlled. Device allocation is commonly implemented at sites that require an additional layer of device security. Typically, users must have authorization to access allocatable devices.
The following task map points to procedures and command options that enable, configure, and troubleshoot device allocation. Device allocation is not enabled by default. After device allocation is enabled, see Allocating Devices for instructions on allocating devices.
