Accessing help for a Particular Utility

To access help for a particular utility:

 syscfg -h -u <utility>

The list of utilities will give you an idea of the types of functions that are controlled by syscfg. As it indicates, you can get more help on a particular utility with by specifying that utility. For this demo, let's work with the NTP utility:

[root@gluon_50 ~ 12]# syscfg -h -u ntp

    Usage: syscfg -s -u ntp -v SIP<ip>:ST<b>:S1IP<ip>
      Configures ntp with server ip <ip>, and state either
      on <b>=1 or off <b>=0.

    Usage: syscfg -r -u ntp
      Prints out the ntp configuration in above format.

    [root@gluon_50 ~ 13]#
