    Default Question regarding pan


    I designed a transformation using Spoon which is stored in an oracle database repository. I now want to start the transformation from the command line using pan.bat. Unfortunately it seems as I cannot connect to the repository using pan.

    For testing, I entered:

    pan -rep=Local -user=admin -pass=admin -dir=/ -listdir

    and I get an error message saying:

    2005/12/13 09:29:54.812 - Pan - Start of run.
    2005/12/13 09:29:55.015 - DBCache - Loading database cache from file: C:\Docume
    nts and Settings\wcsadmin\.kettle\db.cache <span class="error">No InterWiki reference defined in properties for Wiki called 'C'!)</span>
    ERROR: Pan can't continue because the transformation couldn't be loaded.

    I get the same error when calling:

    pan -rep=Local -user=admin -pass=admin -dir=/ -trans=TestTrans

    Is there a bug?

    Unfortunately this is no bug.
    The DOS command prompt messes with the options.
    Try it like the example in the Pan documentation (chapter 1.7):
    Enclosed in double quotes:

    pan -rep="Local" -user="admin" -pass="admin" -dir="/" -trans="TestTrans"

    In the future, I would like to use XML snippets like

    <pan repository="Local" user="admin" password="admin" directory="/" transformation="TestTrans"/>

    and call pan -xml="snippet.xml"

    However, you would still need to use the double quotes :-(

    Sorry about the mess, but it&#39;s mostly cause by the DOS prompt.

    Good luck,
