Create Operating System Profiles

Create Operating System Profiles

Create operating system profiles if the PowerCenter Integration Service uses operating system profiles.
The following table describes the properties you configure to create an operating system profile:
Name of the operating system profile. 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 the following special characters:
% * + \ / . ? < >
The name can contain an ASCII space character except for the first and last character. All other space characters are not allowed.
System User Name
Name of an operating system user that exists on the machines where the PowerCenter Integration Service runs. The PowerCenter Integration Service runs workflows using the system access of the system user defined for the operating system profile.
When you create operating system profiles, you cannot specify the system user name as root or use a non-root user with uid==0.
Root directory accessible by the node. This is the root directory for other service process variables. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > “ | ,
You cannot edit the name or the system user name after you create an operating system profile. If you do not want to use the operating system user specified in the operating system profile, delete the operating system profile. After you delete an operating system profile, assign another operating system profile to the repository folders that the operating system profile was assigned to.
