SYNOPSIS

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. The default device
maps file can be updated only by the super user.


-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
Successful completion.


1
Request failed.
