partition deactivate

De-cache a partition's PED key data. Afterwards, clients cannot authenticate to the partition with just their partition password. While the partition is deactivated, each client attempt initiates a login call, which requires the appropriate Luna PED. See Activation on Multifactor Quorum-Authenticated Partitions for more information.

NOTE   This command requires Luna Appliance Software 7.8.1 or newer. It cannot be used on STC partitions; the Partition SO must use LunaCM at the client for partition management.
