An administrator override file is a configuration file you create, then place on the network. Your users can access this file for connection information to SNA-type machines. If the connection information changes, you can use the administrator override feature to make one central change.

For example, when you introduce a new AS/400 to your network, you only have to add the AS/400 information to one administrator override file on your network. The next time a user pulls up the configuration dialog in the AS/400 display or Rumba APPC Configuration tool, the new AS/400 appears, configured and ready to go.

Note: The administrator override file does not contain the control point name that is used for the connection. This name comes from the user’s machine.
