The smit or smitty panels are the System Management Interface Tool and are just helpful panels to complete tasks that you can do on the command line, if you know how.

Is there a specific subject area you are trying to understand? e.g. network definitions; user management; system backup; console assignment; disk allocations ...... etc.

I will add : SMIT is GUI ( X11...) smitty is vtXXX text graphics and expects to have a window size equivalent to a terminal ( 80 X 25? I forgot now.. columns X lines ) So I really think that smit is a better option for someone new to AIX as smitty is really helpful when you know its shortcuts, without its more complicated... e.g.


Code:
 smitty user

good luck and welcome
