How to Find if AIX machine is LPar or not


I want to know if there is any command which will tell me if an AIX machine is a LPar or not. I am using "lparstat -i" but it does not work on all AIX machines. Is there any generic command by whose output I will come to know if it is an LPar or not?

Please help.

Hm, not quite. Prtconf (aka lsconf) is just a ksh script which uses uname -L under the hood.
