The uname -L command identifies a partition on a system with multiple LPARS. The LPAR id can be useful for writing shell scripts that customize system settings such as IP address or hostname
The output of the command looks like:
# uname -L
The output of uname -L varies by maintenance level. For consistent output across maintenance levels, add a -s flag. For illustrate, the following command assigns the partition number to the variable "lpar_number" and partiton name to "lpar_name".
uname -Ls | read junk lpar_number lpar_name
