Dynamic model files can be located in either the BASEDIR/smarts/local/model or BASEDIR/smarts/local/model/<config> directories. The <config> refers to the configuration directory that was specified on the command line when the Domain Manager was started.

Dynamic models can be loaded into a Manager during startup or while it is running.

The examples in this guide use the sm_server command to load the dynamic models into a Manager during startup. If you use sm_service to start your Manager, edit the command string used by sm_service to include the appropriate option to load your dynamic models. The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides additional information.
