Saving datastage configuration files (on UNIX and Linux systems)

If you are migrating an existing DataStage™ server on a UNIX® or Linux® computer, you must save copies of certain configuration files.

The environment variable $DSHOME identifies the engine directory of your DataStage installation. By default the engine directory is /user_home/Ascential/DataStage/DSEngine, where user_home is the home directory of the DataStage administrator who originally installed DataStage (by default, dsadm). 

Each project is in its own directory in the /user_home/Ascential/DataStage/Projects directory.

If you are migrating an existing DataStage™ server on a UNIX® or Linux® computer, you must save copies of certain configuration files.
The environment variable $DSHOME identifies the engine directory of your DataStage installation. By default the engine directory is /user_home/Ascential/DataStage/DSEngine, where user_home is the home directory of the DataStage administrator who originally installed DataStage (by default, dsadm). Each project is in its own directory in the /user_home/Ascential/DataStage/Projects directory.

    1. Copy the $DSHOME/dsenv file to a location outside of the DataStage file structure.
    2. To keep a record of the existing configuration of your ODBC drivers, copy the following   files to a location outside of the DataStage file structure:
  •         $DSHOME/.odbc.ini
  •         $DSHOME/uvodbc.config
  •         The uvodbc.config file located in each project directory
    3. Copy the DSParams file from each project directory to a location outside of the      DataStage file structure.
