Helpful Hints:
If using DSCLI, you can obtain the CLI and LMC information.
Use the following DSCLI command:
Command
ver
The ver command displays the versions of the command-line interface, Storage Manager, and licensed machine code
Parameters
-s (Optional) The -s parameter displays the version of the command line interface program. You cannot use the -s and -l parameters together.

-l (Optional) The -l parameter displays the versions of the command line interface, Storage Manager, and licensed machine code. You cannot use the -l and -s parameters together.

-cli (Optional) Displays the version of the command line interface program. Version numbers are in the format version.release.modification.fixlevel.

-stgmgr (Optional) Displays the version of the Storage Manager.
Note: This is not the GUI (Storage Manager GUI). This id is related to HMC (Hardware Master Console code bundle information.) This has no value for users.

-lmc (Optional) Displays the version of the licensed machine code (LMC).
Example:
Invoking the ver command:
dscli> -l

The resulting output

dscli> ver -l
