The lslss command displays a list of logical subsystems (LSSs) for a storage image and status information for each logical subsystem in the list.

-dev storage_image_ID
(Optional) The storage image ID, which consists of manufacturer, machine type, and serial number. The storage image ID is required if you do not specify a fully qualified LSS ID, do not set the devid variable in your profile or through the setenv command, and the HMC is aware of more than one storage image. Using the -dev parameter will temporarily override any defined value for devid for the current command.
(Optional) Displays LSS IDs. You cannot use the -l and the -s parameters together.
(Optional) Displays the default output plus the SSID and resource group ID. You cannot use the -l and the -s parameters together.
-addrgrp address_group
(Optional) Displays only LSSs that belong to the specified address group. An address group is a single hexadecimal character (0 - F).
-resgrp resource_group_ID
(Optional) Displays only the LSSs that are assigned to the specified resource group ID. The resource group ID begins with the letters RG and ends with a decimal number.
LSS_ID ... | -
(Optional) The logical subsystem IDs. An LSS ID is two hexadecimal characters 00 - FE.
To specify a range of logical subsystem IDs, separate the logical subsystem IDs with a hyphen.
You must separate multiple logical subsystem IDs or ranges of logical subsystem IDs with a blank space between each ID or range of IDs.
Example: 00-03 08
The ellipsis (...) indicates that, optionally, you can specify multiple values. If you use the dash (-), the specified value is read from standard input. You cannot use the dash (-) while you are in the DS CLI interactive command mode.

Output definitions

The unique identifier that is assigned to this logical subsystem object. The identifier includes the storage image ID and a 2-digit hexadecimal number for the LSS ID. The LSS ID can be in the range of 00 - FE.
The server that is managing the logical subsystem group. The server is identified as either 0 or 1.
The address group object of which the logical subsystem is a member.
The type of storage volumes that are contained by this logical subsystem. The displayed value is either fb (fixed block) or ckd (count key data).
The number of volumes currently assigned to this logical subsystem.
The user assigned, or default SSID value.
The resource group ID that the LSS is assigned to. The resource group ID begins with the letters RG and ends with a decimal number.
Displayed when the -s parameter is specified.
Displayed only when the -l parameter is specified.
