Start and Stop PDI Design Tools and Utilities

grStepGraphicDiConfigSpoonPDIStartandStart.png

Each of the DI tools has a specific function, so you start and stop each one individually. As part of the Installation Wizard and Archive Installation, we provide different ways to help you start each tool and utility, depending on the operating system you use. This table shows you options. After you have decided how you want to start and stop the tool and utilities, please go on to the next stop on the Guide Post graphic.
