IBM Systems Director Console for AIX

This new management interface allows administrators to manage AIX® 6.1 remotely through a browser. The IBM Systems Director Console for AIX (Console) provides a responsive Web access to common systems management tools such as the Systems Management Interface Tool (SMIT). The console is included as part of AIX 6.1—no other products are required to use it other than a Web browser.

The Console is named after the IBM Systems Director because it is built on the same graphical user interface as the IBM Systems Director. Although the Console is named after the IBM Systems Director, it does not have a prerequisite for the Systems Director. All components necessary to run the Console are included in AIX 6.1.

Finally, the Console also includes a new facility to securely execute SMIT operations or other commands on multiple machines at one time. This can improve administrator efficiency by reducing the need to log in to multiple systems to run the same systems management task.
