Displays configuration, diagnostic, and vital product data (VPD) information about the system.
lscfg [ -v p ] [ -l Name ]
lscfg [ -rv ] | [ [ -r ] | [ -v ] [ -l Name ] ]
If you run the lscfg command without any flags, it displays the name, location, and description of each device found in the current Customized VPD object class that is a child device of the sys0 object. The list is sorted by parent, child, and device location. Information on a specific device can be displayed with the -l flag.
Use the lscfg command to display vital product data (VPD) such as part numbers, serial numbers, and engineering change levels from either the Customized VPD object class or platform specific areas. Not all devices contain VPD data.
VPD data that is preceded by ME signifies that the VPD data was entered manually using a diagnostic service aid. For some devices, the vital product data is collected automatically from the devices through methods and added to the Customized VPD object class.
If you run the lscfg
command with the -p flag, it displays device information stored in
the platform specific data areas. When used with the -v
flag, VPD data stored for these devices is also displayed. This
information is obtained on a ISA bus-based (rspc) system from residual data or
the open firmware device tree. This information is obtained on a Common
Hardware Reference Platform (CHRP) system from the open firmware device
|-l Name||Displays device information for the named device.|
|-p||Displays the platform-specific device information. This flag only applies to AIX 4.2.1 or later.|
|-r||Displays the platform-specific device information found in residual data only on rspc systems.|
|-v||Displays the VPD found in the Customized VPD object class. Also, on AIX 4.2.1 or later, displays platform specific VPD when used with the -p flag.|
The system displays a message similar to the following:
