BIL installation checklist

This topic includes a checklist to follow for installing and configuring BIL.

To successfully install and configure BIL, you must ensure that the following tasks are completed:

  • Validate that the hardware, operating system, and supporting software meet stated requirements including necessary patches.
  • Verify the Infrastructure and Application configurations (ulimit settings, database heap sizes, etc.).
  • Verify that messages are processed by InfoSphere® QualityStage® server in a first in, first out (FIFO) order, and that a single node configuration is properly set up on InfoSphere QualityStage.
    Tip: By configuring its parallel engines, you can still use pipeline parallelism to improve realtime job performance, but avoid partition parallelism.
  • Prepare the file system structures on the InfoSphere Information Server machine.
  • Create a project for BIL on the InfoSphere Information Server DataStage® machine.
  • Perform any additional project-specific configuration including DSParams.
  • Install the BIL custom routine, UTCCvt.o.
  • Install the clean up script into the ARCHIVE directory.
  • Copy the Java™ libraries and property files into the Java/lib directory.
  • Import the BIL Assets into the InfoSphere DataStage project that you created.
  • Update the MDMIS Parameter Set.
  • Configure and test InfoSphere Information Server and InfoSphere DataStage connections to the InfoSphere MDM database.
  • Configure the default BIL InfoSphere DataStage configuration files, create additional configurations if desired.
  • (OPTIONAL) NLS-Enable the BIL jobs.
  • Compile the BIL parallel and sequencer jobs.
  • Create a Surrogate Key State file.
  • (OPTIONAL) Test the BIL installation using FullTest SIF files.
