 +====== Parameter Changes ======
 +
 +In September 2010, the SysId page of the Library Load Profile was redesigned.
 +
 +The new page looks like this:
 +
 +{{:plp:library_profiles:llp-default.jpg|}}
 +
 +In the past, this page looked like:
 +
 +{{:plp:sysid-old.jpg|}}
 +
 +----
 +
 +The reason for the change is that the first parameter, 'Database System Id', is:
 +  - a global parameter that applies to all uses of PLP and MCU
 +  - a parameter that was not relevant to the library load profile
 +  - a parameter that is setup once and is then never changed
 + 
 +Placing this parameter on the SysId page, and using the 'System Id' terminology, was very confusing to new users. 
 +
 +The 'Database System Id' parameter has been moved to its own options page (see below); and it will now be known as the 'Union Catalog System Tag', or simply: 'System Tag'.
 +
 +In addition to moving this option, we also rewrote some of the captions used on the library load profile pages. 
 +
 +__No library load profiles need to be changed; this is a change to the interface only__
 +
 +----
 +
 +====== Union Catalog System Tag ======
 +
 +By default, PLP will use the 001 for the Union Catalog System Tag parameter.
 +
 +Since this parameter will normally never need to be changed, it has been
 +password-protected in PLP.
 +
 +To change the database Sysytem Id, follow these steps:
 +
 +1. Select 'Database Parameters' from the 'Configuration' menu:
 +
 +{{:plp:dbparam-1.jpg? 400|}}
 +
 +2. Request a password from TMQ to access this option:
 +
 +{{:plp:dbparam-p.jpg?400|}}
 +
 +3. Enter the changes you wish to make and press 'Save':
 +
 +{{:plp:dbparam-2.jpg?400|}}
 +
