Preparing the host computer and remote computer for remote deployment

Before you can deploy and run jobs on a remote computer, you must ensure that the host computer and remote computer are set up in the same way. You must also complete some system configuration steps, which differ based on your operating system.

Before you begin

Ensure that the computer where you want to run the remotely deployed jobs is set up in the following ways:
  • The computer must have the same version of IBM® InfoSphere® Information Server as the computer where the engine tier is installed.
  • The computer must have the same operating system and the same directory structure as the computer where the engine tier is installed. To run jobs on the remote computer, the ASBNode and Server directories must have the same directory structure as on the host computer.

Procedure

  1. On Linux and UNIX operating systems, change the core file size for the host computer to unlimited by using the ulimit command.
    Tip: After you package the file for the job that you deploy remotely, you might want to change the core file size back to a lower number so that processes do not use too much system resource.
  2. On Windows operating systems, add the DSEHome registry key to the remote computer.
    1. From the Windows Start menu, click Run.
    2. Enter regedit.
    3. In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ascential Software\DataStage\DSEngine\CurrentVersion folder, add a key that is named DSEHome.
    4. For the DSEHome key value, enter C:\IBM\InformationServer\Server\DSEngine.
  3. On Windows operating systems, ensure that the environment variables on the remote computer include the values that are listed in the following table.
    Table 1. Values for environment variables
    Name Values to include
    DS_RESOURCE_LOCATION C:\IBM\InformationServer\Server\DSComponents\res\CC
