Extending Distributed System Designers
Using the System Definition Model (SDM) SDK you can model new logical server and application prototypes that display in the Toolbox. The SDM SDK documentation covers creating these prototypes using the SDK. Topics in this section cover installing these prototypes and getting them working in the Distributed System Designers. To learn more about the SDM SDK, see System Definition Model (SDM) SDK Workshop.

Guidelines for Creating Custom Application Prototypes
Provides guidance on creating application prototypes using the Add to Toolbox command.
How to: Create Custom Prototypes from Configured Applications and Endpoints
Describes how you can create a reusable prototype of an application and/or endpoint that you can access from the Toolbox.
How to: Create Custom Prototypes from Configured Zones and Logical Servers
Describes how you can create reusable prototype of zones, logical servers, and/or endpoints that you can access from the Toolbox.
How to: Import or Install New Custom Prototypes
Explains how to import or install prototypes that were either created by other Distributed System Designer users or from the SDM SDK.
How to: Export Custom Prototypes from Distributed System Designers
Explains how to export prototypes from the Toolbox so that you can share them with other Distributed System Designer users.
Troubleshooting Extensibility Issues
Provides a list of common issues and known workarounds.
