Changing Logs method in DataStage

DataStage logging was changed at release 8.1 to log job run detail records into the operational repository, (xmeta) rather than the local project level log files, (RT_LOGxxx).
In case XMETA repository logging causing problem (i.e not visible from designer), we able to change the logging method back to local project log files.

RTLogging ---> Log will saved in  project level log files which is UV binary files
ORLogging --->  Log will saved in XMETA DB

Here are the steps:

1) Log into DS machine
2) Go to /opt/IBM/InformationServer/Server/Projects/
3) Choose you project directory
4) Edit DSParams file
5) Look for RTLogging and ORLogging entries


 6) Change it to


The logging should now go to project level log files instead of xmeta DB.
Note: We still need to rely on Director client to verbose the log information as the log files data are in binary form.
