Hello

   I´m setting a new server RISC/AIX and the output of
 SMIT to the console comes in a bad format, as if it did
 not recognize the terminal type.
 I´ve been tried "export TERM=vt100", but it did not work.

    Any idea ?

     Thanks

What type of terminal? What is the "bad" nature of the output?

Have you checked comms settings (parity etc?)

Bira,

you need a terminal/terminal emulation with an addressable cursor to run smit. You must match the setup of your terminal with the setting of the TERM variable.

If you have an IBM terminal then try the TERM=ibm3151 setting.
