Configure ODI 11g Agent as Windows Service :
Hey Guys, I was testing the ODI Agent as windows service using YAJSW method given in oracle
blog. Today I will try to explain it with the help of more visuals. In my next post I will try to explain the OPMN configuration which is quite complex than this approach. So you just have to download the zip file from
Now unzip it and start the ODI standalone agent which is already configured by you. Don’t forget to test the agent is successful or not.
Upon successful open task manager and proceed as given in below images.
Now you have got the PID. Open command prompt and go to the location where you have the unzipped folder. Call the genConfig.bat under bat folder and provide the PID as follows.
> genConfig.bat 4332
Screen print given below.
Above bat file will create the wrapper.conf file under conf folder. No need to do any changes as it will take the configuration from your odiparams.bat file. The only thing you need to worry about is the ‘comma’. Just give a backslash before comma for all encoded password. For example : jkj\,ds12132sdsdsd
You can change some values as given in the red rectangle. Whatever you provide here, will be shown in windows service.
Now save everything and call the runConsole.bat under the bat folder in command prompt.
You can see the agent is now running. Test the same in ODI Studio for successful status.
Yes it is. If you are interested to install it as service then call the installService.bat under bat folder. After calling the bat file you might see the message given in below screenshot.
Well after this message I thought something happened behind the scene. So I tried to start the service in services window and got some errors. Anyway thats fine. Lets restart the system and start the service again.
Open ODI Studio and test the agent. Definitely you must be getting ” Agent Successful” status.:D
Thats all for today. Let me know if you face any issues.
