Configure Control File Directories for Multiple Nodes

Configure Control File Directories for Multiple Nodes

When the Data Integration Service runs on primary and back-up nodes or on a grid, Data Integration Service processes can run on each node with the service role. Each Data Integration Service process must be able to access the control file directories.
Use the Developer tool to configure the
Control File Directory
property for each flat file data object that is configured to generate run-time column names from a control file. Configure the
Control File Directory
property in the
Advanced
properties for the flat file data object. Find the property in the
Runtime: Read
section.
When the Data Integration Service runs on multiple nodes, use one of the following methods to ensure that each Data Integration Service process can access the directories:
  • Configure the
    Control File Directory
    property for each flat file data object to use a shared directory to create one directory for control files.
  • Configure the
    Control File Directory
    property for each flat file data object to use an identical directory path that is local to each node with the service role. Replicate all control files in the identical directory on each node with the service role.
