The majority of the records can be changed dynamically, and their new values take effect immediately after the file is saved.

The majority of the records can be changed dynamically, and their new values take effect immediately after the file is saved. This is referred to as dynamic reconfiguration. To update certain configuration file records you must take down the
VM:Secure
product server. In an SSI complex, the servers on every member must be taken down before changing certain records. The records are:
  • ACCESS
  • ALTERNATE
  • AUTOPASS
  • DIRECT
  • RESID
  • SSINODE
Changes to those records take effect when you restart the product.
You can set up or change the
VM:Secure
configuration by entering this command:
vmsecure
config
The
VM:Secure
System Configuration Menu appears.
