How to Update the Network Map

The network map is created during installation, when the network map source is input to the network map load program.

The network map source contains one local node entry and multiple adjacent node entries. It can contain $$ACTION verbs added during previous maintenance.

You can update the network map source while IBM® Connect:Direct® is not executing or dynamically while IBM Connect:Direct is executing.

Note: To test connectivity to an ADJACENT.NODE, use the DGAPHTBT Process (see $CD.SDGASAMP). This Process makes a connection to the ADJACENT.NODE and executes a RUN TASK at the local node. Be aware that the connection causes both IBM Connect:Direct nodes to search their TCQ files for Processes destined for the other node.
