System Management Concepts: Operating System and Devices
The following tips can help you
get started managing the system:
- Start by logging in as
root at the graphics console.
- Perform system
management from the system console until you become experienced with the
system. It is easier to work from the system console than a remote
terminal. Once you are experienced with the system, you can work
remotely from an xterm or an ASCII terminal.
- Take advantage of the
several AIX facilities for system management tasks. They include:
- System Management
Interface Tool (SMIT). SMIT provides an interface between system
managers and configuration and management commands. SMIT can help
system managers perform most system administration tasks. For more
information, see the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) Overview.
- The Object Data Manager
(ODM). The ODM provides routines that access objects from the ODM
databases. The ODM databases contain device configuration
information. For more information about how the ODM databases store
device information, see Chapter 21, Devices.
- The System Resource
Controller (SRC). The SRC provides access and control of daemons and
other system resources through a single interface. For more
information, see the System Resource Controller Overview.
