  8. Accept the default values for the remaining security properties. You can configure the security properties after you create the Data Integration Service.
  9. Select
    Enable Service
    .
    The Model Repository Service must be running to enable the Data Integration Service.

  12. Set the
    Launch Job Options
    property to one of the following values:
    • In the service process. Configure when you run SQL data service and web service jobs. SQL data service and web service jobs typically achieve better performance when the Data Integration Service runs jobs in the service process.
    • In separate local processes. Configure when you run mapping, profile, and workflow jobs. When the Data Integration Service runs jobs in separate local processes, stability increases because an unexpected interruption to one job does not affect all other jobs.
    If you configure the Data Integration Service to run on a grid after you create the service, you can configure the service to run jobs in separate remote processes.
