This parameter specifies a unique 1–16 character name for a IBM® Connect:Direct®/Server. This parameter is not used for a IBM Connect:Direct/Manager.

In a IBM Connect:Direct/Plex, all members appear to external IBM Connect:Direct systems as a single local node. However, if you use network map checking and an external IBM Connect:Direct system communicates with more than one IBM Connect:Direct/Server, you can specify a name to identify each IBM Connect:Direct/Server.

The adjacent node's USE.SERVER.NODE network map parameter (see Keyword Parameters for Adjacent Node Entries) must specify that the IBM Connect:Direct/Server use this name in the initial communications.

Modifiable through MODIFY INITPARMS command: NO
