lscm command on zos does nothing

Ravikanth Chavali (401724) | asked Aug 06 '15, 1:17 a.m.

On zOS, lscm command appears to be running but does not show any output nor error message(s). the same command(s) runs fine with scm.

I am already in /usr/lpp/jazz/v5.0.2/scmtools/eclipse

Example: ./lscm help

What housekeeping steps would discover what's going on ?

Thank you,

Ravikanth Chavali

 Hi Ravikanth,

1) Check the size of lscm file and ensure its not empty or corrupted for some reason.
2) Try with SCM command.
3) Is the issue same for lscm\scm  version command ?

Look also at this thread:, and the answer from Shashikant Padur

these commands need to be run from within the sandbox folder

This was important for me to get lscm to work as expected.
