Description

dminfo reports and updates information about the device_maps(5) file.

Options

The following options are supported:

–a

Succeed if any of the requested entries are found. If used with –v, all entries that match the requested case(s) are printed.

–d dev−path

Search by dev−path. Search device_maps(5) for a device special pathname in the device_list field matching the dev−path argument. This option cannot be used with –n, –t or –u.

–f pathname

Use a device_maps file with pathname instead of /etc/security/device_maps.

–n dev−name

Search by dev−name. Search device_maps(5) for a device_name field matching dev−name. This option cannot be used with –d, –t or –u.

–t dev−type

Search by dev−type. Search device_maps(5) for a device_type field matching the given dev−type. This option cannot be used with –d, –n or –u.

–u dm−entry

Update the device_maps(5) file. This option is provided to add entries to the device_maps(5) file. The dm−entry must be a complete device_maps(5) file entry. The dm−entry has fields, as in the device_maps file. It uses the colon (:) as a field separator, and white space as the device_list subfield separators. The dm−entry is not made if any fields are missing, or if the dm−entry would be a duplicate.

–v

Verbose. Print the requested entry or entries, one line per entry, on the standard output. If no entries are specified, all are printed.

Exit Status

0
