Use smit to add your hostname and IP address, otherwise AIX's Mysterious
Internal Tables don't get updated properly.
I'd normally recommend reading the man page, but I've read the man page
for smit, and while I've gathered a collection of humorous quotes from
it, I've never managed to get useful information out of it.
"The smit command displays a hierarchy of menus that can lead to
interactive dialogues." -- AIX man page
