Trying to move over to the JDS (rel 3) environment (from CDE), however, I can't figure out how to run the Solaris Management Console from there.
Other than that JDS looks quite good.

What happens when you try to run it?

I don't know where to go to start SMC from the JDS environment. SMC works fine from the CDE side.

It should be installed at /usr/sbin/smc  

I don't know of if there is a predefined desktop file in JDS. If you can start smc from the command line, then uit should be trivial to add it to the menus.

Hi blu,
Getting close now!  Yes, I found it in /usr/sbin/smc
What is 'uit' ?
How can I add it to a menu or the desktop? I tried copying the smc executable script to the desktop, but it won't from there (doesn't do anything).

uit = it

Once you know what you want to run, you can add it to the bottom panel. If you right click on the bar on the bottom (might be on top for you) you should see an entry that says "add to panel".
Pull that item right and you should see a choice that says "launcher...".   After that it should be obvious.
