In this document, the term BASEDIR represents the location where VMware Smart Assurance software is installed:

  • For UNIX, this location is: /opt/InCharge/<product>.

  • For Windows, this location is: C:\InCharge\<product>.

    For example, on UNIX operating systems, VMware Smart Assurance Service Assurance Manager is, by default, installed to /opt/InCharge/SAM/smarts. On Windows operating systems, this product is, by default, installed to: C:\InCharge\SAM\smarts. This location is referred to as BASEDIR/smarts.

    Optionally, you can specify the root of BASEDIR to be something other than /opt/InCharge (on UNIX) or C:\InCharge (on Windows), but you cannot change the <product> location under the root directory.

    The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides more information about the directory structure of VMware Smart Assurance software.
