Password file required for commandline job execution?
It appears that I am unable to execute batch jobs through the commandline without using the password file option.
I have correctly generate the execution script files through the Data Services Management Console. I have reviewed the scripts and they all appear well formed with the correct parameters.
But when I generate the script and unselect the "Use Password File" option, I keep getting this error when trying to launch the job from the commandline:
(188.8.131.528) 04_24_2015 09:54:58 (7696): No DS Local Repositories Registred in CMS
(184.108.40.2068) 04_24_2015 09:54:58 (7696): *** RWJL_EXIT called.
(220.127.116.118) 04_24_2015 09:54:58 (7696): *** ERROR: RWJobLauncher failed to connect to CMS. (BODI-1250220) [/code]
When I tick the "Use Password File" option - it all works fine. However, I have a need to use the "old style" approach where there was no such thing as a password file.
So the above errors happens on our SAP DS 4.2 SP4 test system that runs on Microsoft Windows and uses SQL Server 2012 as repository + CMS (IPS) database.
When I try this on the actual SAP DS 4.2 SP4 system that runs on Red Hat Linux Enterprise and uses Oracle 11gR2 as repository + CMS (IPS) database, I get this error:
04-17-2015 14:22:51 Specified CMS authentication is not available.
04-17-2015 14:22:51 ERROR(CCMSLogonManager::InitializeSession)
04-17-2015 14:22:51 RWJobLauncher failed to connect to CMS.
04-17-2015 14:22:51 RWJobLauncher return code: 180011
On our older versions of Data Integrator (down to 11.5.3) the commandline execution on both Windows and Linux always worked fine and never required the use for a password file (I don't think this option even existed back then).
I have a requirement to make this work WITHOUT the password file. I have consulted the technical manuals but I cannot find anything that indicates this shouldn't work. I also cannot find any SAP Note that indicates that there is a problem here.
Am I missing something here? Has anyone else ran into the same issue and errors - and if so, could you please share how you resolved this? At this stage, my next port of call is to raise a SAP Support incident but I want to make sure I have tried all options first before I reach out to support.
