WARNING: sysadmsh does not replace the documentation. It provides an overview of available system administration features and a reminder of tasks which need to be performed regularly. An understanding of the ``The installation and upgrade procedure'' in the Getting Started Guide is necessary to use sysadmsh.
Once you are in sysadmsh, online instructions for its use may be obtained by selecting the <F1> key. See the System Administration Guide for more details on using sysadmsh.
Some sysadmsh options must be run from the system console device, or while in single-user (system maintenance) mode. Refer to the manual page referenced by the menu selection for more information.
You can set the colors to be used within sysadmsh by editing the files .sysadmcolor in your home directory, or /usr/lib/sysadm/sysadmcolor. See the sysadmcolor(F) manual page for more details.
A knowledge of vi(C) is assumed for file edit selections, although the SCO Lyrix® editor is used when available.
There are three environment variables which sysadmsh considers to locate the editor it calls. SA_EDITOR is tried first, if this is null then VISUAL is tried, then EDITOR.
If none of the editor environment variables are set, then one of the following editors is chosen: /usr/bin/lyrix, /bin/vi or /bin/ed (listed in order of preference).
The following additional environment variables are used:
