Use the lsfcmapdependentmaps command to display the FlashCopy mappings that depend on the user specified mapping.


lsfcmapdependentmaps [ -nohdr ] [ -delimdelimiter ] { fc_id | fc_name }


(Optional) By default, headings are displayed for each column of data in a concise style view, and for each item of data in a detailed style view. The -nohdr parameter suppresses the display of these headings.
Note: If there is no data to be displayed, headings are not displayed.
-delim delimiter
(Optional) By default in a concise view, all columns of data are space-separated. The width of each column is set to the maximum width of each item of data. In a detailed view, each item of data has its own row, and if the headers are displayed the data is separated from the header by a space. The -delim parameter overrides this behavior. Valid input for the -delim parameter is a 1-byte character. If you enter -delim : on the command line, the colon character (:) separates all items of data in a concise view; for example, the spacing of columns does not occur. In a detailed view, the data is separated from its header by the specified delimiter.
fc_id | fc_name
(Required) Specifies the name or ID of the FlashCopy mapping to list the dependent maps for.


This command returns a list of dependent FlashCopy mappings. This command can be used to determine the list of FlashCopy mappings that would also stop if you stopped a mapping by using the -force parmeter.

There is a dependent_mapping_count field in the FlashCopy map detailed view (displayed when you process the lsfcmap command) that you can use as an indicator whether there are any dependent mappings in progress. If the count is zero, there are no dependent copies.
Note: If time elapses between the time you process the lsfcmap command and the lsfcmapdependentmaps command, there could be a difference between the actual number of dependent mappings that are being processed and the number that was reported by the lsfcmap command.
