The GUI of admintool does not have right to open a display.
You can fix this by typing `xhosts +` on the console window.

OR you are not working in a grafical interface at all, then admintool can not start.

Telnet is not a graphical mode, so the admintool can't start

As far i remember SUN does not support a non-grafical admintool like HP's 'sam' and IBM's 'smit'.

See this:

For more information "how to start a Xwindow on my PC"


If you tell us what you wanna do, maybe we can explain how to fix it on the command line
