New HMC LPAR description field, API or CLI to obtain/maintain field
Previously, we would use ugly lpar names that would describe the purpose of the LPAR eg. "SCC1234 - ESB WAS Sandbox 1" The hostname is SCC1234 When we installed the latest HMCs, and via the GUI, I find a new Description field, but I'm being told this was implemented as GUI only. Even if it's just a text file on the HMC itself, I would like to get an API, or CLI method to extract this information. and as a bonus to maintain it, but, read/only is fine for a start.
