Starts the Distributed System Management Interface Tool (DSMIT).
dsmit [ -C ] [ -D ] [ -f ] [ -h ] [ -l PathName ] [ -o PathName ] [ -s PathName ] [ -t ] [ -v ] [ [ -m | -n | -d ] FastPath ] [ -X ] [ -x ] [ -w Machine [ ,Machine ] ... ] [ -W Domain [ ,Domain ] ... ]
Note: Do not put a space between the comma and multiple values for the Machine and DomainName parameters.
The dsmit command starts the Distributed System Management Interface Tool (DSMIT). DSMIT is an interface designed to simplify system management tasks. The dsmit command displays a hierarchy of menus that lead to interactive dialogs. DSMIT builds and runs commands as directed by the user. Because DSMIT runs system management commands, you must be a registered DSMIT administrator to use it. The server must specify the working collective, a list of machines authorized to receive commands. The working collective is a temporary list. It must be reset beginning each DSMIT session by the DSMIT administrator.
|-C||Starts the Distributed System Management Interface Tool (DSMIT) using the ASCII interface (also called the Curses interface).|
|-D||Sets the debug mode; sets -t and -v flags.|
|-d FastPath||Identifies that the FastPath is the name of a dialog.|
|-f||Allows standard input and output from DSMIT to be redirected.|
|-h||Displays the command usage message.|
|-l PathName||Redirects the smit.log file to the specified PathName file.|
|-M||Starts DSMIT in the windows mode.|
|-m FastPath||Identifies that the FastPath is the name of a menu.|
|-n FastPath||Identifies that the FastPath is the name of a selector.|
|-o PathName||Specifies the directory PathName of an alternate repository for DSMIT objects.|
|-s PathName||Redirects the smit.script file to the specified PathName file.|
|-t||Records detailed trace information in the smit.log file.|
|-v||Records the command strings for intermediate and target task commands run by DSMIT, and also records their output in the smit.log file.|
|-w Machine||Specifies the machines to be in the working collective.|
|-W Domain||Specifies the domains to be in the working collective.|
|-x||Does not run any cmd_to_execute, but logs them for later execution.|
|-X||Does not run any cmd_to_discover, cmd_to_list, cmd_to_classify or cmd_to_execute.|
|-z||Starts DSMIT in the distributed mode.|
Access Control: You must be a registered DSMIT administrator to run this command.
