Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
If using an ETL home folder for a datasouce which does not match staretl# (where # matches the datasource ID), execution of the star configuration wizard (configStar or the web based configuration wizard) will recreate a new folder to match staretl# (where # matches the datasource ID) causing a mismatch between what the star Configuration thinks it is reading/writing to/from vs. what it is actually using, and mismatches where the ETL home property files are set to.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
If using a custom folder, the configStar and web configuration utility should read/write to the custom folder rather than a folder called staretl# (where # matches the datasource ID)

This issue can be reproduced using the following steps:

  1. Run the configStar tool to create a new ETL home for P6 (staretl1 for datasource 1)
  2. Once the configStar process is completed, update etl_homes/staretl1 to etl_homes/staretl
  3. Rerun configStar and note that on step 4 it does reflect the proper name change
  4. Select data source 1 and edit
  5. Complete through the steps, but on step #2 or step #3, add a new code
  6. Complete the configuration wizard; once configStar is closed, note that a new folder gets created (staretl1) with the updated properties instead of using staretl.

Note, this occurs under any circumstance for staretl# (where # matches the datasource ID) but the ETL home folder does not match the data source ID #.
