AIX 5.1 POWER4 support help

Can anyone let me know the output of command 'uname -aL' on AIX 5.1 POWER4 support?

Don't look like -L is supported at 5.1

I have already gone through this document but I have one AIX 5.1 with PowerPC_604e support machine, and when i ran 'uname -L' command it is returning "-1 NULL".

My requirement is that i need output of 'uname -aL' command on AIX 5.1 with POWER4 support. Help regarding this will be useful for me.

Not sure I understand the question.

604e is not power4.

Fron the 5.2 command reference is looks like -L was introduced at AIX 5.2:

-L Displays LPAR number and LPAR name. If LPAR does not exist, -1 is displayed for LPAR number and NULL for LPAR name.

So it seems your 604e machine might be running AIX 5.2 or 5.3 and of course a 604e won't support LPAR so you will get an output of -1 NULL.

Check the oslevel -r on the 604e and the power4 machines, IBM might have introduced the -L in a late ML of 5.1 but not documented it.

Come back with more information about the 604e and power4 systems and the oslevel output if you need more info.

From documents I came to know that AIX 5.1 (with some ML1 or ML2 I guess) with POWER4 support is capable of static LPAR. I have one application which uses uname -L command, and application will work when output of this command is other than -1 NULL. So I want to confirm whether this command returns value other than -1 NULL on AIX 5.1 with POWER4 or not (presently I dont have AIX 5.1 with POWER4 support).

Yes AIX5.1 supports LPAR.
No AIX5.1 does not support uname -L on any platform.
