Web-based System Manager is a graphical user interface (GUI) application for managing your system. You can manage systems from a locally attached display or remotely from another AIX system or personal computer equipped with a web browser. You can perform such tasks as viewing users and groups, installed software, and printers and devices; managing logical volumes; mounting and unmounting file system; configuring the network; as well as numerous other tasks.
The Web-based System Manager GUI provides point-and-click control of objects, which provides an alternative to learning and using AIX commands.
