Turns on a specific trace option or any combination of options for a specified node, where nnnnnnnn represents a debug setting in hexadecimal. You can specify this node-level parameter for as many nodes as required. Node-level initparms are processed in the order specified.

The node name parameter is the 1–16 character local node name specified in the network map of the affected node. You can use the * and ? wildcard characters to specify the node name. If you specify * anywhere in the node name other than the very end, you must enclose the node name in single quotes. For example, the following parameter enables tracing on all node names that contain DENVER and sets the debug bits to 80000000.

NODE.TRACE.ON = (‘*DENVER*’,80000000)

You can modify NODE.TRACE.ON= settings using the MODIFY command. See IBM® Connect:Direct® MODIFY Command.

See Debug Settings for a complete listing of the DEBUG settings, the trace types produced, and the ddnames used for output.

Modifiable through MODIFY INITPARMS command: NO
