Explains how this guide is organized.

Are you having a problem with DI Server, Spoon, or some other PDI component?  Learn how to troubleshoot and resolve common PDI problems using tools you already have. 

Common PDI problems are grouped into several categories.


The only prerequisite is that you have a problem with a PDI component and you want to fix it.  It doesn’t matter if you are installing, upgrading, or are already using PDI. 


You should know how to edit text files.  You should also know how to use a command line utility, such as the Windows Command Prompt, Linux Terminal window, or a shell tool to view logs and navigate a directory tree.


No special tools are required to troubleshoot common PDI problems listed in this section.

Login Credentials

You don't need any special login credentials, but depending on the problem you might need access to files and directories on the server.
