Distributed SMIT 2.2 for AIX: Guide and Reference
Defining clients for the Distributed System Management Interface Tool (DSMIT) program enables clients to run commands built by the DSMIT server. To define a client, you must add it to the /usr/share/DSMIT/hosts file by editing the file directly or with the DSMIT interface.
- A DSMIT server must reside on your system.
- The DSMIT client installation packages must be installed on your server.
Define a Client Using the Command Line
Add the name of the client to the /usr/share/DSMIT/hosts file in the following format:
The machine name should be a TCP/IP host name. If you add a fully qualified network name to the /usr/share/DSMIT/hosts file, you must use this name as the client name when using the dsmit command.
The operating system name should be listed in the /usr/share/DSMIT/dsmitos file.
Do not put spaces within the machine name or the operating system name. Substitute spaces with underscores. The following are examples of correct entries:
