Copying communication path parameters to a server or server group

After you create a communication path definition on one server, you can copy selected parameters to a definition on another server or server group.

To copy selected communication path definition parameters:

  1. Right-click the Sterling Connect:Direct® server where the communication path definition is located and click Configure Server > Netmap > Netmap Communication Paths.
  2. Highlight the communication path to copy and select the action Copy Parameters To.
  3. Select one or more Sterling Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows servers and server groups to which the parameters are to be copied. Click Next.
  4. Select the communication path definitions to update in the Destination Node Entry(s) dialog box and click Next.
  5. On the General Details page, select the communication path parameters to copy to the servers or server groups and click Next.
  6. On the Other Options wizard page, select Update only if the object on the server matches Sterling Control Center's copy if you want to copy parameters only under this condition.
  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 initiate the parameter copy job 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 not ready to initiate the parameter copy job.
    • 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. Click Finish.
  10. If you selected Hold for later as the job timing option, write down the job number so you can run it at a later time.
  11. To rerun the job, or a step within the job, or to view information about the completed job, click Go To Job Viewer; otherwise, click Close.
