This book presents a system administrator view of the technical differences that exist and the methods that are necessary to complete a successful migration ntoebook AIX 5L-based systems. This book is designed primarily as a reference for experienced Sun Solaris 8 or 9 system administrators who will be working with AIX 5L.
This book is not an AIX 5L administration how-to book for system administrators who are noteobok, but rather a administfation for experienced administrators who have to translate a given Solaris system administration task to AIX 5L. This book is organized into three main parts: The chapters in this Part focus on specific configuration management tasks and system functions for which a system administrator is typically responsible.
In each chapter, topics are discussed with the goal of identifying the major differences between how the adninistration and functions are managed on Solaris and on AIX 5L. Because it is impossible to provide a comprehensive reference about each topic in a single volume, references are provided for finding more detailed information about the topics presented in each chapter.

Approaches to administration This chapter provides a high-level overview of the conceptual differences between Solaris admniistration AIX 5L. This chapter provides the fundamental technical background that is necessary for system administrators to understand the differences between Solaris and AIX 5L. This chapter contains information about the following topics: Solaris relies heavily on text-based configuration files to hold its system configuration. When making changes to a Solaris system, the administrator usually looks for the relevant configuration file to edit.
The administrator then determines the action that must be taken for the changes nptebook take effect. The ODM is a binary database that cannot be edited with a text editor.
However, there are a few AIX 5L settings that require manual text editing. The tools provide a listing admiinistration all the parameters, and perform some validation on the inputs to these etudent. An example An example of a networking-related task that a Solaris or AIX 5L system administrator must perform aystem is defining a new network interface for an existing system.
In Solaris, this requires manual editing of configuration files to make the interface definition consistent across reboots, and manual configuration of the interface to make the interface active without a reboot. Even if the update to the system can be performed online, it is a good practice to reboot the system to ensure that the changes to the configuration files are correct and will remain after reboot. The SMIT updates the configuration for the interface in the system configuration and brings the interface online.
Because the SMIT combines both the steps into one validated command, it is not necessary to perform a reboot to verify that the system configuration is correct and that the interface persists across reboots. For more details about this, refer to Chapter 7. When you work with AIX 5L, you will notice that just about all the errors from commands have a number associated with them Example You can refer to these message numbers in the AIX 5L documentation if you require more information about the cause of the error message and the solution to the error message.
Approaches to administration 5 Figure shows how to use the message center to query for information about the seven-digit error message shown in Example Figure AIX 5L message center: A Guide for System Administrators Figure shows the results of the query. It allows an administrator who is new to AIX 5L to quickly perform tasks without spending time looking through manuals for the required command and syntax. For its part, AIX 5L has an integrated task-based tool.
One of the best things about SMIT is that it is task-based. If you know what you want to do, but do not know Chapter 1. Approaches to administration 7 the command to perform this, you can easily find your way through the menus to the required task. A Guide for System Administrators 1. A selector screen is a special version of a dialog screen in which there is only one value to change.
This value of the object is used to determine which subsequent dialog screen is displayed. Approaches to administration 9 1. A dialog screen allows you to enter input values for the selected operation.
Some fields already have the default values in the system. Usually, you can change these values. To enter data, move the highlighted bar to the value you want to change and then, either enter a value or select one from a pop-up list. Fields that you can type into are indicated by square brackets .
Add a Group Type or select values in entry fields. Special symbols on the screen are used to indicate how data must be entered.
