Try putting it in the autoexec.sas (if you have one, or create one). Either
reference the autoexec in your CONFIG or place it in the same folder as
sas.exe and it will be executed on startup. Not sure if LOGPARM qualifies
for autoexec as opposed to config (you might need to put it in the config -
one of the installation mavens might be able to help more there :)
