diskpart parameters

Is diskpart -i a valid parameter. I see it mentioned online. but it gives error as "DiskPart was unable to process the parameters."

When I did DISKPART /?, it gives
"Microsoft DiskPart syntax:
        diskpart [/s <script>] [/?]

        /s <script> - Use a DiskPart script.
        /?          - Show this help screen."

I would just like to see the basic info on the SAN disks on the server.

What am not doing right in using this command?

    Perhaps this was a valid switch in an older version of DISKPART, but it isn't in Windows XP and up.

    What specific information are you trying to retrieve?  You might be able to use FSUTIL or a script instead.

    are you using Windows Server 2008/R2?
    Or WinPE?
    Then Diskpart is a program in where you can run other commands.
    ex: DISKPART - ENTER - this starts diskpart
    then type commands, like
    LIST DISK (to list disks)
    SELECT DISK 0/1/2/3 ... given the number of the disk
    LIST PARTITION (to list partiitons)
