InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Pre-Image Journal directory.
[config]    pijdir=n
The value n is the name of the directory in which to store the Pre-Image Journal (PIJ) file for clusters. This setting applies only to InterSystems IRIS instances that support clusters. All InterSystems IRIS instances on OpenVMS support clusters. This parameter is ignored on other platforms.
There is no default directory; you must enter a valid, existing directory name for this setting or the system you are configuring is unable to join the cluster correctly. Therefore, before starting the first InterSystems IRIS instance in a cluster, create a directory for the PIJ file on a disk that is accessible from all cluster members, and specify this directory as the PIJ Directory in the InterSystems IRIS configuration for each cluster member. If the InterSystems IRIS instance that you are configuring will not be an InterSystems IRIS cluster member, you may omit a value for the pijdir parameter.
Multiple InterSystems IRIS clusters can exist on a single OpenVMS cluster. It is the pijdir value that defines which InterSystems IRIS cluster an installation is a member of. A single instance can only be a member in one cluster.
Range of Values
If provided, n must be a valid, existing directory path.
