Provides background information on this guide.
In this section, you do the minimum configuration tasks for the server, design tool, and utilities, so you can get started creating ETL solutions.
The topics in this section are written for IT administrators who know where data is stored, how to connect to it, details about the computing environment, and how to use the command line to issue commands for Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Microsoft OS.
We provide a design tool, Spoon, that you use to perform most configuration tasks.
All of the configuration tasks that use Spoon require that you login to Spoon using a Pentaho administrator user name and password.
