Configuring the SAP dispatch/gateway service

To use the InfoSphere® Information Server Pack for SAP BW version that is earlier than, you must add entries for the SAP dispatch/gateway service to the services file for your InfoSphere DataStage® client and server computer. From version onwards, you can skip configuring SAP dispatch/gateway service if you are providing the system number information for application or message server. For more information, see Connection Properties - Connection and Logon Details page.

About this task

If the SAP application is already configured on InfoSphere DataStage client and server computer, the entries might already be added. For more information, see 1574964.


  1. Open the services file.
    The location of the services file depends on your operating system:
    • On the Windows NT platform, the file is in the <windows>\system32\drivers\etc\services directory.
    • On the Unix platform, the file is in the /etc/services directory.
  2. Add the following entries to the services file:
