    1. Right-click the file and select Rename.
    2. Enter a new name for the file.
  5. Modify the new system definition file.
  6. Right-click the modified system definition and select Make Active.
  7. Select Operate»Deploy to deploy the modified system definition.
  8. Optional: Remove a system definition file by right-clicking the file and selecting Delete.
