Commands Reference, Volume 6

xuserm Command


Starts Users & Groups Manager, a Visual System Management (VSM) application.




The xuserm command starts Users & Groups Manager, one of the Visual System Management (VSM) applications. Users & Groups Manager is a graphical interface that enables you to perform security tasks through direct manipulation of objects (icons), freeing you from entering complex command syntax or from searching through menus.

Users & Groups Manager makes adding users simple by providing system-defined and user-customized templates. Simple drag-and-drop actions enable you to set user passwords, change a user's language, and allow or disallow a user to log in to a system (enable or disable).

The Users & Groups Manager session creates or adds to the smit.log and smit.script files in your home directory. (These are the same files appended when you run a SMIT session.) The commands built and run by Users & Groups Manager are added to the end of the smit.log file along with the command output. The time, name of the task, and the command (flags and parameters included) are added to the end of the smit.script file in a format that can easily be used to create executable shell scripts.


To start Users & Groups Manager, enter:
