Starting Admintool

The Admintool executable, admintool, is located in the /bin directory. The obsolete Software Manager executable, swmtool (located in the /usr/sbin directory) is linked to the /bin/admintool command. If you type swmtool&, the Admintool window opens. Use the following steps to start Admintool.

NOTE

To install or remove software, you must run Admintool as superuser, be a member of the UNIX sysadmin group (GID 14), have rights to install or remove software, or be a member of a role that has rights to install or remove software. See Chapter 23, “Role-Based Access Control,” for information about rights.
