Web-based System Manager Administration Guide

Command Line Tools

The following table identifies commonly used command-line commands that are used to maintain Web-based System Manager:

Command Used to:
/usr/websm/bin/configassist The Configuration Assistant wizard displays automatically after the operating system is installed and is used to assist with configuration tasks. It can also be run at any time to complete additional configuration. Use the Configuration Assistant to configure a system that has an HTTP Server installed to run Web-based System Manager in a browser. See Applet Mode for more informatoin.
/usr/websm/bin/wsm Start a Web-based System Manager client session.
  • -host managing host

    Forces Web-based System Manager to initially connect to the specified host. Even though you can easily manage other hosts while running Web-based System Manager, this option allows you to start Web-based System Manager with the preferences you set up on the specified host machine.

  • -lang Language

    Specifies in which language messages are displayed. If the sysmgt.msg.Language.websm.apps fileset is not installed, messages will be displayed in English.

  • -port port number

    Causes Web-based System Manager to connect to any other hosts using the specified port. This port number used must match the port number on the managed machines for the wsmserver service specified in the /etc/services file.

  • -profile pathname of preference file

    Specifies an alternate preference file. The default preference file will be a file named WebSM.pref found in the user's home directory. Using this option enables the user to use a different preference file. This can be useful if the user manages different sets of machines for different clients.

    Note: The preference file is read from either the local machine, or from the machine specified in the -host argument.

  • -user username

    Causes Web-based System Manager to run as the given user name. You will be prompted for the user's password.

  • DdefaultTurners=value
    When the value is true, Java Look and Feel turners are used instead of Windows turners for parent tree nodes in the Navigation Area and the Contents Area. No angled lines are drawn between tree objects.
  • -DdrawTreeLine=value

    When value is true and -DdefaultTurners=true, causes angled lines to be drawn between tree objects in the Navigation Area and the Contents Area.

  • -Ddatadir=path

    Specifies an alternate directory to look for configuration files normally found in /var/websm/config/user_settings.

/usr/websm/bin/wsmaccess Wrapper around wsm command to enable Accessibility features.
Same as /usr/websm/bin/wsm.
/usr/websm/bin/wsmserver Enables or disables a machine as a Web-based System Manager server, that is, a machine that can be managed through a Web-based System Manager client.
  • -enable

    Updates the TCP/IP services so that inetd daemon will listen for Web-based System Manager-client requests on port 9090 . By default, Web-based System Manager is configured during installation not to accept client requests.

  • -disable

    Removes port 9090 from those ports that are responded to by the inetd daemon. This disables the machine from responding to new Web-based System Manager client requests. It does not terminate existing Web-based System Manager server processes.

  • -start

    Starts a Web-based System Manager server. This server waits for a request from a Web-based System Manager client. This option is not needed in normal operations.

  • -ssloptional
    Allows, at the discretion of the user, the server to be managed either in SSL or with a standard socket.
  • -sslalways

    Allows only the server to be managed by a client if an SSL connection can be created between the client and server.
