Sadly the SA GUI is gone, I'm not sure I ever read why it was taken out
unless they are just trying to simplify things. I also liked it.

I did try a test though. I installed the 3.1.08 version on a computer and
upgraded to a newer version without removing. Since the new version does not
install in the same directory structure as before I was able to keep the SA
GUI and it seemed to work. I doubt Tivoli would support you if you had
problems since 3.1 is going off support soon.
