-ui Specifies the user interface to be invoked. The choices are:
cui Specifies command line interface.
gui Specifies graphical user interface.
Specifies the display screen on where sysman_menu displays its window.
If the display option is not specified, sysman_menu uses the display

more information, see the X(1X) reference page.
In a TruCluster environment, some management tasks effect the cluster
as a whole and some are local to a specific cluster member. If a task
requires focus, the "Choose a host to manage" dialog box will be
displayed. To launch the task directly, bypassing this dialog box, you
can specify the -focus option.
-accel accelerator arguments
Directly invokes the task with that accelerator. Any arguments are
passed on to the task itself. Use sysman -list for a list of the
If the accelerator is for a branch of the menu and not an executable
task, then the menu hierarchy is expanded to display the contents of
the specified branch.
-menu menu_name arguments
Same as -accel option but the name of the task as displayed in the Sys-
Man Menu is specified. For example, sysman -menu "Manage local users".
Any arguments are passed on to the task itself.

SysMan Menu is used by the system administrator to obtain system management
data and run selected system management tasks. SysMan Menu provides a menu
of system management tasks in a tree type display, with branches of manage-
ment categories and leaves of actual tasks. Selecting a leaf or tasks
invokes a task, which displays a dialog for performing the task.
SysMan Menu and its associated tasks can be run on an X Windows display, a
terminal with curses capability, locally on a PC, or from a Web browser.
