Environment Variables

Environment Variables

The database client path on a node is controlled by an environment variable.
Set the database client path environment variable for the PowerCenter Repository Service process if the PowerCenter Repository Service process requires a different database client than another PowerCenter Repository Service process that is running on the same node.
The database client code page on a node is usually controlled by an environment variable. For example, Oracle uses NLS_LANG, and IBM DB2 uses DB2CODEPAGE. All PowerCenter Integration Services and PowerCenter Repository Services that run on this node use the same environment variable. You can configure a PowerCenter Repository Service process to use a different value for the database client code page environment variable than the value set for the node.
You can configure the code page environment variable for a PowerCenter Repository Service process when the PowerCenter Repository Service process requires a different database client code page than the PowerCenter Integration Service process running on the same node.
For example, the PowerCenter Integration Service reads from and writes to databases using the UTF-8 code page. The PowerCenter Integration Service requires that the code page environment variable be set to UTF-8. However, you have a Shift-JIS repository that requires that the code page environment variable be set to Shift-JIS. Set the environment variable on the node to UTF-8. Then add the environment variable to the PowerCenter Repository Service process properties and set the value to Shift-JIS.
