Verify the Location of the Identity Population Files
If you install identity population data files, verify that the Informatica services that run mappings and sessions can find the files.
By default, the PowerCenter Integration Service reads the path to the identity population files from the
IDQTx.cfg configuration file.
When you upgrade, the installer writes an empty
IDQTx.cfg file to the following directory:
<Informatica installation directory>/server/bin
If the installer finds an
IDQTx.cfg file in the
server/bin directory, it renames it to IDQTx.cfg.bak.
IDQTx.cfg file that the upgrade operation installs does not specify a location for the identity population data files. To maintain the address reference data configuration that you defined before you upgraded, update the upgrade file with the contents of the backup file. Or, delete the upgrade file, and remove the
bak extension from the backup file name.
The PowerCenter Integration Service can also read the location of the population files from the SSAPR environment variable. If the installation includes the SSAPR environment variable, you do not need to update the
IDQTx.cfg file after you upgrade.
