Configuring $PMRootDir

Configuring $PMRootDir

When you configure the PowerCenter Integration Service process variables, you specify the paths for the root directory and its subdirectories. You can specify an absolute directory for the service process variables. Make sure all directories specified for service process variables exist before running a workflow.
Set the root directory in the $PMRootDir service process variable. The syntax for $PMRootDir is different for Windows and UNIX:
  • On Windows, enter a path beginning with a drive letter, colon, and backslash. For example:
    C:\Informatica\<infa_vesion>\server\infa_shared
  • On UNIX
    :
    Enter an absolute path beginning with a slash. For example:
    /Informatica/<infa_vesion>/server/infa_shared
You can use $PMRootDir to define subdirectories for other service process variable values. For example, set the $PMSessionLogDir service process variable to $PMRootDir/SessLogs.
