Introduction:

In member FEYCFG there are two statements that define the LPAR host name: 
CONTROLLER_HOST_NAME=sdev.mf.company.net 
DB_HOST=sdev.mf.company.net 

When job FEYCFG05 is run it updates the DCD ZFS install file with these host names, specifically: 

MCSTS1/opt/lpp/dcd/config/TCPIP.properties 

TCPIP.Min_Port_For_DCD=33170 
TCPIP.Max_Port_For_DCD=33180 
TCPIP.Controller_Port_For_DCD=38443 
TCPIP.Controller_Host_Name=sdev.mf.company.net 

/MCSTS1/opt/lpp/dcd/config/dao.properties 

jdbc.db.dbType=db2 
jdbc.db2.dbUrl=jdbc:db2://sdev.mf.company.net:4460/DB2SUBS 
jdbc.db2.dbDriver=com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver 
jdbc.db2.dbQualifier=DCDADM 
jdbc.db2.dbName=CADCDDB 

Question:

These jobs update the original target install ZFS file which is used on an LPAR. However, we intend to run on various LPARs which will require different LPAR host names.  Is there a way of updating these statements generically using a symbolic or masking character thru the started task parms or in these config files? 

For example:

TCPIP.Controller_Host_Name=&sysname.mf.company.net 

Answer:

At this time there is no way to use a symbolic or masking character for CONTROLLER_HOST_NAME= or DB_HOST=.

It is being considered as an enhancement in the future.
