All these things are stored in the *.aod files in the Appl\<instance>\ directory on the file-share.
(in your case moast likely axusr.aod)
Also possibly in the *.ald files if you have changed any labels.

1. Shut down your AOS service (or services if more than one AOS is involved).
2. Copy all the files to a safe location. (remove all files ending with *.??i which are temporary files)
3. Restart your AOS service.
4. Make your modifications.
5. Restart your AOS service again to make sure that your changes are distributed correctly.

If everything messes up then you can revert your changes by
1. Shut down your AOS service.
2. Replace you files thaty you did copy to a safe place.
3. Start the AOS service.
4. Compile the AOT (right-click on the AOT root-node, select compile and wait)
5. Synchronze the database (right-click on the data-dictionary and select synchronize)
