Removing an initialization parameter value

You can remove a value assigned to an initialization parameter.

The parameter is not removed; however, it has no value assigned to it.

To remove an initialization parameters value:

  1. Right-click the Sterling Connect:Direct® server where the initialization parameters file is located and click Configure Server > Initialization Parameters.
  2. Double-click the initialization parameters file to view. A table view is displayed.
  3. Right-click the parameter to clear and click Remove Parameter Value.

    On Microsoft Windows servers, the parameter value is reset to <None>. For UNIX and z/OS servers, the value is removed.

  4. Click Update.
  5. To update the parameter only if the initialization parameters file on IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor matches the file at the Sterling Connect:Direct server, select Update only if the object on the server matches Control Center's copy.
  6. In the Job Name field, type a name for the configuration job. In the Job Description field, type a description of the configuration job.
  7. 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.

  8. 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.
  9. To run the job or view information about the completed job, click Go To Job Viewer or click Close.
