Configuring the Data Integration Service to Use Operating System Profiles

Configuring the Data Integration Service to Use Operating System Profiles

Configure the Data Integration Service to run mappings, workflows, and profiling jobs with operating system profiles.
The operating system user you define in the operating system profile must have access to the directories you configure in the operating system profile and to the directories the Data Integration Service accesses at run time. For example,
pmsuid
is a tool that the DTM process, command tasks, and parameter files use to switch between operating system users. You must provide permissions to operating system users to run
pmsuid
with the permissions of the Data Integration Service administrator user.
If you enable the Data Integration Service to use operating system profiles, you cannot enable cache connection, the SQL Service Module, and the Web Service Module.
Complete the following steps to configure the Data Integration Service to use operating system profiles:
  1. Configure system permissions on the files and directories that the operating system profile user needs access at run time.
  2. In the Administrator tool, enable the Data Integration Service to use operating system profiles.
  3. On the Security page of the Administrator tool, create operating system profiles.
    For more information on creating and managing operating system profiles, see the
    Informatica Security Guide
