Preparing the test files before running the test

In order for the test files to run correctly, the various InfoSphere® MDM Code Tables should contain values which match to the associated values within the test SIF records.

This can be done through modifying the SIF records to contain only data values found within the code tables or by loading appropriate code values into the tables.

If the code tables have been loaded with values specific to a customer installation, then the test SIF records should be modified to match.

In a new InfoSphere MDM installation, the InfoSphere MDM database will likely not contain any existing parties. If the InfoSphere MDM database is already populated with parties prior to running FullTest, a manual comparison should be made to ensure that existing SSK data values do not match those in the FullTest SIF files. If matches are found, values in the FullTest SIF files should be modified.
