Device Allocation Manager GUI

The Device Allocation Manager is used by administrators to administer allocatable and nonallocatable devices.

In a Solaris Trusted Extensions (JDS) workspace, the GUI is called the Device Manager. This GUI is started from the Trusted Path menu by selecting Allocate Device.

Dialog box titled Device Allocation Manager shows the user name, and the devices that are available to that user.

Users see an empty list when they are not authorized to allocate devices. Or, an empty list might indicate that the allocatable devices are currently allocated by another user or are in an error state. If a user cannot see a device in the Available Devices list, the user needs to contact the responsible administrator.

The Device Administration feature is available to roles that have either one or both of the authorizations that are needed to administer devices. The administration authorizations are Configure Device Attributes, and Revoke or Reclaim Device. The following figure shows a Device Allocation Administration dialog box.

Dialog box titled Device Allocation Administration shows a list of devices and status. Shows the Revoke, Reclaim, New, and Configure buttons.
