Copying initialization parameters from one server to another

You can copy initialization parameters created on one server to another server.

This method provides a quick way to update parameters on additional servers on the same operating system as an initial server.

To copy initialization parameters to another server:

  1. Right-click the Sterling Connect:Direct® server where the initialization parameters file is located and click Configure Server > Initialization Parameters.
  2. Highlight the initialization parameters file to copy.
  3. Select the action Copy Parameters To.
  4. Select the Sterling Connect:Direct server groups or servers to which you want to copy parameters. Click Next to go to the next page.
  5. In the Initialization Parameters Details window, select the parameters to copy and click Next.
  6. To allow values of existing parameters to change only if the initialization parameters file on IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor matches that on the server, click Update Initialization Parameters only if the object on the server matches Control Center's copy.
  7. In the Job Name field, type a name for the configuration job. In the Job Description field, type a description of the configuration job.
  8. Select a timing option for running the job:
    • Now to update the file immediately.
    • Hold for later to send the job to the job queue with a status of Held.
    • Schedule for later and then specify a time zone and date/time when the job is to run. This option sends the job to the job queue with a status of Scheduled.

    Click Next.

  9. Review the copy parameters you selected and click Finish.
  10. If you selected Hold for later as the job timing option, write down the job number so you can easily find the job in the job queue later.
  11. To run the job or view information about the completed job, click Go To Job Viewer or click Close.
