lscfg - list hardware configuration
This program is part of the lsvpd package for Linux. This package is a (partial)
reimplementation of AIX's lsvpd and related commands.
lists hardware configuration information for the system and its
components. The output is in a human readable format. This implementation is
merely a pretty-printer for information that has been stored in lscfg
hardware inventory database at boot and hot-plug time. Therefore, the
command must have been executed prior to running
Some IBM POWER systems feature dynamic VPD
will only list
this VPD when invoked by the root
user - when invoked by another user
this VPD will be omitted but other VPD will still be listed.
- Show Vital Product Data (VPD) for components, where
- List platform-specific information in a separate section,
- Only show configuration information for the component with
the given operating system name (i.e. the AX field in
lsvpd output). Note that name may include wildcards, such as
* and ? (however, such wildcards should be protected from
- Use <database-file> as the hardware inventory
database, rather than the default file ( /var/lib/lsvpd/vpd.db).
This option is useful for producing output for previous hardware inventory
databases that have been replaced by the system.
- Use <database-archive> as the hardware inventory
database, rather than the default directory ( /var/lib/lsvpd/). The
archive is a tar(1) archive that has been compressed using
gzip(1). It must contain a single directory containing at least a
file called system-id.
This option is useful for producing output for old hardware inventory
databases that have been archived by the system.
- Display a help screen and quit.
- Database file used by lscfg.
