 += AIX NIM Client ​
  
 +This page shows you how to add a standalone client to the NIM environment,​ and how to reset and remove it again. This is mostly done through smitty.
 +
 += AIX NIM Client Add
 +smitty nim
 +* Perform NIM Administration Tasks
 +** Manage Machines
 +*** Define a Machine
 +(smit fastpath: smit nim_mkmac) ​
 +Fill in the hostname the NIM server can resolve! If not, NIM will create a new network or disply other miscellaneous errors. ​
 +**NOTE: without proper DNS A and PTR records the NFS mount will fail** \\

 +smitty nim
 +* Perform NIM Administration Tasks
 +** Manage Machines
 +***  Perform Operations on Machines
 +Select the machine you want to reset and press ENTER and select the reset operation: \\

 +bash-3.2# nim -o reset lpar01
 +</​code>​
 +
 += AIX NIM Client Remove
 +Now you can remove the machine:
