  sysman_menu -	Graphical interface to run system management tasks


  /usr/sbin/sysman [-ui	cui | gui] [-display displayname] [-menu]

  /usr/sbin/sysman [-accel] <&lt;accelerator>&gt; [arguments]

  /usr/sbin/sysman [-menu] <&lt;name>&gt; [arguments]

  /usr/sbin/sysman -list

  /usr/sbin/sysman [-menu] -help  | -h

  /usr/sbin/sysman -focus hostname


  -ui Specifies	the user interface to be invoked. The choices are:

      cui     Specifies	command	line interface.

      gui     Specifies	graphical user interface.

  -display display_name
      Specifies	the display screen on where sysman_menu	displays its window.
      If the display option is not specified, sysman_menu uses the display
      screen specified by your DISPLAY environment variable. The display
      option has the format hostname:server.number. The	default	is :0.0.  For
      more information,	see the	X(1X) reference	page.

  -focus cluster_member_name
      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.

      The name 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

      Displays a list of all the tasks that can	be run from the	SysMan Menu
      and their	accelerators.

      Displays help for	the SysMan Menu.


  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.
  For detailed information in running SysMan Menu from a PC or a Web browser,
  please use your Web browser and go to:

  Man Menu.
