This option allows you to request that a remote server running VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF reload its *.ncf configuration files. The Reload server option is used to make configuration changes active on a remote server. For example, if an *.ncf configuration file is pushed to a remote server through the Push to server option, or a specific *.ncf package file is pushed to a remote server through the Push package to server option, the configuration changes on the remote server will not become active unless the Reload server menu option is selected.


Care should be taken to ensure there are no conflicting configurations within multiple *.ncf files on the remote server, as the order in which these files are read is undetermined. Use only one *.ncf file on a remote server.

When you select the Reload server option in the VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF Editor:

  1. The Connect to a Server dialog box appears as shown in GUID-181BE9CD-E5B6-48C8-BB99-EEFE2DF7C1F9.html#GUID-181BE9CD-E5B6-48C8-BB99-EEFE2DF7C1F9___NOTIF_USER_USING_18342. Choose the remote server where you want to reload the configuration file and click OK.

  2. If there are other *.ncf files in the remote server besides the *.ncf file you are pushing from your local server to the remote server, note that all of the *.ncf files on the remote VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF Adapter Platform or SAM server will be reloaded in the corresponding BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/<config> directory.

  3. After the remote server has reloaded the configuration file(s), the Reload Complete dialog box shown in GUID-181BE9CD-E5B6-48C8-BB99-EEFE2DF7C1F9.html#GUID-181BE9CD-E5B6-48C8-BB99-EEFE2DF7C1F9___NOTIF_USER_USING_39787 appears. This dialog box confirms that the new configuration in the *.ncf file has been reloaded and is persistent in the remote server. Click OK.
