Description

It seems to me that `-l, --lu-name` should not be called an option. This is not an option here, but a requirement, without which the command does not do anything meaningful. <> imply that this is a required piece of information also. The `-l` really does not offer much value here, as it is the only possible "option" that results in meaningful output. Dropping the `-l, --lu-name` does not seem unreasonable in this instance. In fact, what is really optional, as denoted by [...] is the view number, without which all views are returned.

  1. stmfadm list-view
    stmfadm: at least one option required

Usage: stmfadm list-view <OPTIONS> [ve-number ...]
OPTIONS:
-l, --lu-name <LU-Name>
