Web-based System Manager Administration Guide
The following table identifies commonly used command-line commands that are
used to maintain Web-based System Manager:
||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.
||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
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
- -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
- -user username
Causes Web-based System Manager to run as the given user name. You
will be prompted for the user's password.
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.
When value is true and
-DdefaultTurners=true, causes angled lines to be drawn between tree
objects in the Navigation Area and the Contents Area.
Specifies an alternate directory to look for configuration files normally
found in /var/websm/config/user_settings.
||Wrapper around wsm command to enable Accessibility
Same as /usr/websm/bin/wsm.
||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
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
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.
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.
Allows, at the discretion of the user, the server to be managed either in SSL
or with a standard socket.
Allows only the server to be managed by a client if an SSL connection can
be created between the client and server.
