    Default Variables defined in are not recognized with Pan/Kitchen in Redhat

    Hi Guys,

    We have a problem in execute pan command-line to run one transformation.

    Our environment is:

    OS: Redhat Enterprise Linux
    PDI: 4.2.1-Stable Community Edition

    We are using the located in pentaho_new/data-integration/.kettle and have a environment KETTLE_HOME declarated point to pentaho_new/data-integration

    When run the shell script the follow message appear:

    Error occured while trying to connect to the database

    javax.naming.NamingException: Invalid data source:'${dw}'
    Invalid data source:'${dw}'

    The ${dw} is point to des_dw, jndi connection exists in

    Not much else to do, someone would have any idea?

    Thanks a lot,

    not sure, try a few things:

    1. Make sure the variable is properly exported i.e. echo $KETTLE_HOME gives the correct path
    2. Check for typos in the path
    3. If you run this from cron, it may or may not pick up the .profile of the user you run as, thus the KETTLE_HOME var may be missing
    4. include an echo $KETTLE_HOME at the top of to make sure the path is really there

    please get back to us with the results

    The problem was resolved.

    The problem was a incorrect path declareted for $KETTLE_HOME.

    Thank you!
