The vios Command

The command vios has currently ( or later) more than 70 subcommands.

Run the command vios without any argument to get a list of all available subcommands.

To get an online help page directly on the shell, type “vios help <subcommand>“.

We have just started to create this additional documentation for each of these subcommands. Currently these are documented in the LPAR-Tool itself (by using the subcommand help) and in the following documentation:

Practical Introduction

Advanced Administration

The Hardware Management Console

These guides have the focus on PowerVM and they show how to adminster PowerVM using the LPAR-Tool. We felt that an additional documentation of the commands with the focus on the LPAR-Tool commands themselves would be helpfull as a reference.

So check back regularly to see more and more subcommands described in detail here!
