Defining Custom and File/Directory Resources

Defining Custom and File/Directory Resources

You can define custom and file/directory resources available to a node in the Administrator tool. When you define a custom or file/directory resource, you assign a resource name. The resource name is a logical name that you create to identify the resource.
You assign the resource to a PowerCenter task or PowerCenter mapping object instance using this name. To coordinate resource usage, you may want to use a naming convention for file/directory and custom resources.
To define a custom or file/directory resource:
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. In the Domain Navigator, select a node.
  3. In the contents panel, click the
    Resources
    view.
  4. On the
    Manage
    tab
    Actions
    menu, click
    New Resource
    .
  5. Enter a name for the resource.
    The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters: ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
  6. Select a resource type.
  7. Click OK.
    To remove a custom or file/directory resource, select a resource and click
