When creating a line description, do you know what to type each time the system asks you to specify the resource name? Do you know what to do when your attempt to vary on a line fails because another line on the same resource is already varied on (and you have so many communication lines that you don't know which one it is)?
If this sounds familiar to you, you need the Display Hardware Resource (DSPHDWRSC) command. Execute the command by entering the following:
*CMN indicates you want the communications resource information. This will display each resource name available with all the communications lines attached to it. The default output is to the display, but through the OUTPUT parameter you can specify *PRINT for printer output or *OUTFILE for file output.
