HostManager - Host Manager
Managers display information about your system and provide access to
interactive guides (also called tasks) that let you administer your
system. For example, the User Manager displays a list of the user
accounts currently on the system and gives you access to guides like "Add
a User Account" and "Modify a User Account".
In the Manager window, you can open a guide by choosing its name from the
Task menu or by clicking its button at the bottom of the window.
The Host manager displays the local host list on your system. Please
refer to hosts(4) for more information.
Guides, also called "tasks," are interactive windows that lead users
through the steps necessary to perform various system administration
tasks, such as adding new user accounts and configuring networking on the
A guide typically consists of a series of pages that prompt users to
enter information or select options. A user navigates through guide pages
using the Prev and Next buttons (or corresponding arrow keys). When the
user reaches the last page of a guide and clicks the OK button, the
system executes one or more commands to perform the system administration
task. These commands are located in /usr/sysadm/privcmd. See addhos
for more information.
Many of the guides require that a user either know the root password or
be assigned the necessary privileges (using the PrivilegeManager(1M)) in
order to perform the task.
