Salesforce Batch Adapter and Connection settings

I am using Saleforce Adapter Version SFDC_8.2_Fix7 on software Version Updates IS_9.6_Core_Fix11.

I want to know what is the ideal configuration of salesforce connection I create to process batch Upsert statements.

I am facing following issue while creating the adapter and I believe it is something to do on my IS setup of how the connection has been created.

Please help.
