Operating System Profile Properties for the Data Integration Service

Operating System Profile Properties for the Data Integration Service

The following table describes the operating system profile properties for the Data Integration Service:
Property Description
Name
Read-only name of the operating system profile. The name cannot exceed 128 characters. It cannot include spaces or the following special characters:
% * + \ / ? ; < >
System User Name
Read-only name of an operating system user that exists on the systems where the Data Integration Service runs. The Data Integration Service runs mappings, workflows, and profiling jobs using the system access of the operating system user.
$DISRootDir
Root directory accessible by the node. This is the root directory for other service process variables. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
$DISTempDir
Directory for temporary files created when jobs are run. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/disTemp.
$DISCacheDir
Directory for index and data cache files for transformations. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/cache.
$DISSourceDir
Directory for source flat files used in a mapping. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/source.
$DISTargetDir
Directory for target flat files used in a mapping. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/target.
$DISRejectedFilesDir
Directory for reject files. Reject files contain rows that were rejected when running a mapping. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/reject.
$DISLogDir
Directory for logs. It cannot include the following special characters:
* ? < > " | , [ ]
Default is <root directory>/disLogs.
Enable Hadoop Impersonation Properties
Indicates that the Data Integration Service uses the Hadoop impersonation user to run mappings, workflows, and profiling jobs in a Hadoop environment.
Default Hadoop impersonation user is the logged in user. To specify a different Hadoop impersonation user, select Use the Specified User as Hadoop Impersonation User and enter a user name.
Environment Variables
Name and value of environment variables used by the Integration Service at run time.
If you specify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the operating system profile properties, the Integration Service appends the value of this variable to its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. The Integration Service uses the value of its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to set the environment variables of the child processes generated for the operating system profile.
If you do not specify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the operating system profile properties, the Integration Service uses its LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
On AIX, you must set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to INFA_HOME/services/shared/bin for the Data Integration Service to successfully run mappings, profiles, and workflows with operating system profiles.
Flat File Cache Directory
Directory of the flat file cache where the Analyst tool stores uploaded flat files.
If the Analyst Service connects to a Data Integration Service that uses operating system profiles, the operating system user specified in the operating system profile must have access to this flat file cache directory. When you import a reference table or flat file source, the Analyst tool uses the files from this directory to create a reference table or flat file data object. Restart the Analyst Service if you change the flat file location.
