Error creating a new project in IBM InfoSphere DataStage

Technote (troubleshooting)


The following error displays when trying to create a new project:

DSR.ADMIN: Unable to find the new project template location.


Template.ini file in /opt/IBM/Information Server/Server or C:\IBM\Information Server\Server for DS version 8 and /opt/Ascential/DataStage or C:\Ascential\DataStage for DS version 7 directory is used to create new projects and the error message indicates it may be missing or incorrect.

Resolving the problem

If the file is missing from the directory, perform one of the following:

  • Copy the file into the appropriate directory for your platform and DataStage version from another server.

  • Create the file.

    For example, for DataStage v8.x on Unix/Linux:

    $ pwd

    $ more Template.ini
