To reload and apply template .xml files from the BASEDIR/smarts/conf/applications directory, you can use the sm_esmctl utility. If the template has been modified, the sm_esmctl utility loads the .xml files from the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/applications directory.
At the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory, type:
./sm_esmctl -s <ESM_Domain_Manager> --load-templates
./sm_esmctl -s INCHARGE-ESM --load-templates sm_esmctl: Completed Loading Templates
