After doing a fresh install of AIX 5.3-11 on a p630 I've discovered that some of the smit fastpaths are not working,  For example:  
# smit chjfs  (or smitty chjfs)

1800-051 There are no items of this type.  (In a popup window)

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

that's just because you don't have any jfs filesystems anymore.

It's all jfs2 now, because you obviously chose the option "Create Enhanced Journaled Filesystems" during install.

Once you created a jfs filesystem the shortcut will work again.

Try "smitty chjfs2"

What other shortcuts are not working?
