The wsmserver command is used to control the server processes used by the Web-based System Manager. The servers are used to enable applet and client-server modes of execution. In addition, if the security functionality is installed, the SMGate utility can be configured.

Note: The full pathname of this command, /usr/websm/bin/wsmserver, must be specified.


-enable Enables the applet and client-server modes.
-disable Disable the applet and client-server modes
-start Start a session of the Web-based System Manager server.

This is normally only used by inetd.

The following flags can only be used if the security functionality has been installed:

-enablehttps [port_number] Starts the SMGate utility. An optional port_number for the SMGate server can be specified. If specified, the SMGate server listens on that port instead of the default of 9092.
-disablehttps Disables the SMGate utility.
-starthttps Starts the SMGate utility. This is normally started by the init process.
-sslalways Allows only secure connections. This flag is for a system with security configured.
-ssloptional Allows both secure and non-secure connections to the Web-based System Manager.


  1. To enable Web-based System Manager for applet and client-server mode, enter:

    /usr/websm/bin/wsmserver -enable
  2. To enable the SMGate utility, enter:

    /usr/websm/bin/wsmserver -enablehttps
