Specifies the name of the partitioned data set member that contains the backup of the global initialization parameter file. It is created when IBM® Connect:Direct® successfully initializes. In case IBM Connect:Direct cannot start up successfully after initparm updates have been applied, you can restore the initparms using this member and then restart IBM Connect:Direct.

Note: The PDS that is used for the INITPARMS in the PARM= of the JCL is the data set used to hold the backup. Ensure that the PDS is large enough to hold both the directory entry (with ISPF type stats) and this backup member.

Modifiable through MODIFY INITPARMS command: NO
