Windows 64bit Informatica 9.0.1 Server Complete Installation

Informatica 9.0.1 Server Installation:
 This post provides complete step by step instruction for installation and configuration of Informatica PowerCenter 9.0.1. This includes the installation of server components, configuration of different Informatica services and client installation and configuration.

Pre-requisites of Informatica Installation:
It is needed to create a schema in an oracle database while installing Informatica server. This schema will be have the metadata repository. And this data will be used by Informatica both server and client. Metadata can include information such as mappings describing how to transform source data, sessions indicating when you want the Informatica Server to perform the transformations, and connect strings for sources and targets.

Script to create a tablespace in Oracle Database:
CREATE TABLESPACE INFAREP_TS DATAFILE 'D:\app\hp\oradata\orcl\infarep_ts.dbf' SIZE 100M AUTOEXTEND ON MAXSIZE 500M;

Note: 
Datafile path should be your machine oracle installed path where the tablespace will be created after executed the above query.

SQL Syntax to create schema to hold metadata:
CREATE USER INFAREP
IDENTIFIED BY INFAREP
DEFAULT TABLESPACE INFAREP_TS
TEMPORARY TABLESPACE TEMP
PROFILE DEFAULT
ACCOUNT UNLOCK;

SQL syntax to extend password life to lifetime:
ALTER profile DEFAULT limit password_life_time UNLIMITED;

Script to create role that will be given to user:
Create role SSE_ROLE;
Grant connect, resource to SSE_ROLE;
Grant select any table to SSE_ROLE;
Grant create session to SSE_ROLE;
Grant insert any table, delete any table, update any table to SSE_ROLE;

SQL Script to create schema to hold metadata:
GRANT SSE_ROLE TO infarep;
GRANT GLOBAL QUERY REWRITE TO infarep;
GRANT CREATE MATERIALIZED VIEW TO infarep;
GRANT CREATE TABLE TO infarep;
GRANT CREATE ANY VIEW, DROP ANY VIEW TO infarep;
GRANT CREATE ANY SEQUENCE, DROP ANY SEQUENCE TO infarep;
GRANT CREATE ANY INDEX, DROP ANY INDEX TO infarep;
GRANT UNLIMITED TABLESPACE TO infarep WITH ADMIN OPTION;

Note: All Scripts shown above should be executed in the same sequence as specified above before starting the installation.

Informatica 9.0.1 Server Installation:

************************************************************************************************************
Important Note:
with the above step we have successfully installed the server. Now in order to configure the Power Center Repository and Integration Services, there are few things we have to make sure. In my case I'm installing theInformatica Client and Server in my local machine were I have my Oracle Server database 64 bit. However in order to configure the Powercenter Repository Services we should also install Oracle Client 32 bit in the same machine. The reason is Informatica can talk to the server only through the 32 bit Client machine.


1. Install Oracle 32 bit client in your system . click here for Oracle 32bit Client Download Link

b. Copy the tnsnames.ora file from installed oracle server 64bit path to to the client path.

*********************************************************************************
Configuring / Creating Repository Services:
Step1: Go to Start menu and Click on “Informatica Administrator Home Page”. This will open up the Admin Console in a web browser. 

Step2: Log on to Admin console using your Admin User ID and Password. You set your Admin User ID and Password in “Step9” above.

Step3: Once you Log on you will see the Screen just like shown below.

Step4: Choose your Domain Name from “Domain Navigator”, Click on “Actions”, Choose “New” and “PowerCenter Repository Service”.

Step5: A new screen will appear, in which you need to fill in details. 

Step6: Fill in following details.
o Repository Name: Appropriate Repository Name.
o Description: An optional description about the repository.
o Location: Choose the Domain you have already created. If you have only one Domain, this value will be pre populated.
o License: Choose the license key from the drop down list.
o Node: Choose the node name from the drop down list.
Click “Next”. 

Step7: A new screen will appear, provide the Repository database details.
o Database Type : Choose your Repository database (Oracle/SQL Server/Sybase)
o Username: Database user ID to connect database.
o Password: Database user Password.
o Connection String: Database Connection String.
o Code Page: Database Code Page
o Table Space: Database Table Space Name
o Choose “No content exists under specified connection string. Create new content”
Click “Finish”.

Step8: It takes couple of minutes create Repository content. After the repository creation below screen will be seen.

Step9: The repository service will be running in “Exclusive” mode as shown below. This needs to be change to “Normal” before we can configure Integration service. Click “Edit” Repository Properties. 


Step10: A pop up window appears, set the properties
o Operation Mode : Normal
o Security Audit Trail : No
Click “OK”.
State is now changed to “Normal” mode.

Configuring Integration Services:
Step1: Choose your Domain Name from “Domain Navigator”, Click on “Actions”, Choose “New” and “PowerCenter Integration Service”.

Step2: Following screen appears. 

Step3: A new window will appear, provide the details as shown below.
o Name: Desired Integration Service Name.
o Description: An optional description about the repository.
o Location: Choose the Domain you have already created. If you have only one Domain, this value will be pre populated.
o License: Choose the license key from the drop down list.
o Node: Choose the node name from the drop down list.
Click “Next”.

Step4: A new window will appear, provide the details as shown below.
o PowerCenter Repository Service: Choose your Repository Service Name from the drop down list.
o Username: Admin user name.
o Password: Admin password.
o Data Movement Mode: ASCII.
Click “Finish”. 
Step5: A pop up window will appear, Choose the Code Page as ANSI. Click “OK”.

Step6: Window will be closed and you can see all the configured services in the “Domain Navigator”.

With that we are all done with the installation and configuration for Informatica PowerCenter Server 9.0.1.

we will see Complete step for Installing Informatica Client Installation in the next Post
