Status Not under consideration

Allow "Display Path Status" from command line

currently the only interface to view the current Disk Path Status is in Service Tools.

Would like to be able to see that information from the WRKDSKSTS screens (via a F-11 option view)

Use Case:

only way to view disk path status is to logon to Service tools. this is not optimal for remote support issues.

    What was the reason for decline?
    Not technologically possible?
    Resource constraint?

    Because the status of this RFE was changed to "Declined", the RFE tool itself will automatically send an e-mail to the Submitter after a year has passed, to ask if the RFE should be re-opened. The RFE may be resubmitted for consideration it at that time.
