To edit the configuration file for connecting to a server (serverConnect.conf), invoke the sm_edit utility as follows:

         /opt/InCharge/SAM/smarts/bin>sm_edit conf/serverConnect.conf

In this example, the sm_edit utility automatically creates a local copy of the serverConnect.conf file in the /opt/InCharge/SAM/smarts/local/conf directory and opens the file in a text editor. If a local version of the file already exists, the sm_edit utility opens the local version in a text editor. In addition, sm_edit creates any necessary subdirectories.

The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides additional information about the sm_edit utility.
