Introduction
The AIX System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) provides an alternative to the
typical method of using complex command syntax, valid parameter values, and
custom shellpath names for managing and maintaining your operating system
configuration.
SMIT offers the following features:

Two modes of operation

User assistance
System management activity logging
Fast paths to system management tasks
User-added SMIT screens

For detailed information about the AIX operating system, refer to thefollowing
Web address: http://www.ibm.com/servers/aix/library/.
AIX library information is listed under Technical Publications.
Modes of Operation
SMIT runs in two modes: ASCII (non-graphical) and Xwindows (graphical). ASCII
SMIT can run on both terminals and graphical displays. The graphical mode,
which supports a mouse and point-and-click operations, can be run only on a
graphical display andwith Xwindows support. The ASCII mode is often the
preferred way to run SMIT because it can be run from any machine. To start the
ASCII mode, type at the command line:
smitty or smit -a
To start the graphical mode, type:
smit or smit -m
Note: If you execute the above commands from a terminal or your TERM attribute
is set to a non-graphical setting, SMIT will always run in the ASCII mode.End User Interface
SMIT is an interactive, menu-driven user interface that allows you to more easily
perform routine system management tasks and to manage and maintain your
operating system configuration. System management tasks are grouped by
application and presented in a series of menu, selector, and dialog screens. For
example, all common software installation tasks are grouped in theSoftware
Installation and Management application. This task-oriented structure makes SMIT
easy to use, allowing even novice users to perform routine system administration
tasks.

SMIT screens display the actual system configuration. The displayed information
varies from system to system, based on what is installed on a particular system.
