SMH starts instead of SAM !!!!

Hello,

i have an HPVM 11.31, I need to run SAM to do some tasks, I have the following message, I want to use SAM interface which I'm used to use.

 

System Administration Manager (SAM) is deprecated in this release of HP-UX.
System Management Homepage (SMH) is the new tool introduced to manage HP-UX.
You are recommended to use /usr/sbin/smh.

You are out of luck.  Sam is dead and buried.  You can run smh in text mode if you have to by unsetting $DISPLAY.

Re: SMH starts instead of SAM !!!!

As said, no SAM in 11.31.

 

For browser access:

 

http://server-ip:2301

 

for terminal access:

 

# unset DISPLAY

 

# smh


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi srayfay,

 

The command sam on HPUX 11.31 is present only for the purpose of backward compatibility and will always launch SMH. It is normal behaviour. On HPUX 11.31, SMH has replaced SAM completely. I believe even the restriced SAM builder option would work but even that would be equivalent to an smh -r.
