System properties vs. VM options
From a technical perspective, and VM options are the same thing, they are just specified in different files. System properties are specified in
smartgit.properties in the SmartGit's Settings Directory, VM options are specified in the
smartgit.vmoptions file. From an administrative perspective, it's recommended to configure all system properties in the
smartgit.vmoptions file and leave individual user
smartgit.properties files untouched.
By default, the files from the
defaults directory will only be copied during the initial setup of the user's SmartGit installation. In certain scenarios, it may be desirable to replace a configuration even after SmartGit has been set up for a user. For example, the Tools may be managed by the administrator and updated from time to time. User should receive these updates regardless whether their SmartGit is already set up or not. In this case, you can use the VM option
smartgit.startup.settingsToReplaceFromDefaults to force overwriting (i.e. to reset) the specified files in the user's settings directory.
