So you may set up different DCS directories called “Server 1”, “Server 2” etc, and when you start your dedicated server, you point each instance to one of those using “-w Server 1” as part of the startup shortcut.

If you only ever run a single instance, and only ever run the dedicated server, you don't need to worry or care about it — DCS will simply read from its default directory (usually %userprofile%\Saved Games\DCS or %userprofile%\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta or some such).

OK, thanks, now I understand
