Updating initialization parameters for a server

In IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor, you can update the initialization parameters of a server.

If you change a parameter it is validated before the change is applied. If the change is not valid an error message is displayed and the change is not made.

To update initialization parameters values:

  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 update.
    A table view of the initialization parameters is displayed.
  3. To update an initialization parameters field from the table view:
    1. Double-click the parameter to modify.
    2. In the Value field, type the new parameter value.
    3. See the help in the product or the Sterling Connect:Direct documentation for the platform you are updating.
    4. To move to the next initialization parameter in the file, click the down arrow.
  4. To update an initialization parameters file from full-text view:
    1. Click the Full Text View tab.
    2. Highlight the parameter to modify and change the value.
    3. To locate a parameter, type the value in the Find field. The first value that matches the string you typed is highlighted in green. Click the up or down arrow until you find the parameter to update.
    4. Click Update to close the Initialization Parameters Properties window.
  5. To update the initialization parameters only if they match the copy on IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor, 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.
    Note: Select Hold for later if you are unsure of your changes or are not finished changing parameters.
    • 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 select 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.
