Maintaining the network map file

The network map file is created when you install IBM® Connect:Direct®. If necessary, use a text editor to add or modify remote node records in the network map file. You can modify the network map file dynamically while the server is running. For local node connection record (local.node record) updates to be effective immediately, the Connect:Direct server must be recycled.

You can also use the Connect:Direct Browser User Interface to perform some of the procedures related to the initialization parameters file. To learn more about the Connect:Direct Browser User Interface, see the documentation related to that product in the IBM Documentation Library.
