By default, the Delimited Text driver files are installed on the Metadirectory server at the same time as the Metadirectory engine. The installation program extends the Identity Vault’s schema and installs both the driver shim and the driver configuration files. It does not create the driver in the Identity Vault (see Section 3.0, Creating a New Driver) or upgrade an existing driver’s configuration (see Section 4.0, Upgrading an Existing Driver).
Unless you extend the driver’s functionality along with the Java interfaces (see Section 8.0, Using Java Interfaces to Customize File Processing), the driver is capable of only reading input text files from the local file system of the server where the driver is running. This means that your input directory must be located on the same server as the driver. You have three options:
If your input directory can be located on the Metadirectory server and the Delimited Text driver files are already installed on the server, skip this section and continue with Section 3.0, Creating a New Driver/
If your input directory can be located on the Metadirectory server but the driver files are not already installed on the server, install the files by using the instructions in Identity Manager 3.6.1 Installation Guide.
If your input directory cannot be located on the Metadirectory server, install the Remote Loader (required to run the driver on a non-Metadirectory server) and the driver files on the server where the input directory resides. See Identity Manager 3.6.1 Installation Guide.
