The sm_deploy has the following command-line options:

  • --install=<dir> – To install the utility.

  • --create=<file> – To create the deployment package.

  • --deploy=<file> – To deploy the package.

  • --rollback – To rollback the configuration changes.

  • --broker – The broker to which the SAM server is attached. Use this option to collect configuration settings from SAM RPS.

  • --server – The SAM server whose configuration settings from RPS are to be collected.

  • --clean – To clean the files in the local directory.

  • --silent

  • --sitemod – To specify customer specific local directories.

  • --help

    The deployment utility must be used with at least one of these options.

    Note:

    If you want to run this utility from older versions of VMware Smart Assurance products, you must copy the sm_migrate.pl script, sm_deploy.pl script and, the Perl files packaged in a .zip file from the 10.1.0 installation to the corresponding locations in the old installation.
