Click Here previous post (part1) which describes how to get and unpack required software packages

In this part I will describe How to install Oracle 11g and create a database for Informatica Repository and Domain

So here we go..

STEP1:-  Go to the unzipped database folder which we unpacked in the part 1 of this post (STEP 7) and run the setup file

 

Ora2

 

Leave everything blank in the next screen and uncheck the box for My Oracle support and press next. Ignore the warning popup and press Yes.

Ora3

 

Ora4

STEP2:- Select the option to Create and Configure a database

Ora5

STEP3:- Select Desktop Class installation in the next screen

Ora6

STEP4:- Set the properties in the next screen as per the screenshot below. Note Down the password you provide here. Also make sure you note down the Global Database Name your provide. Click Next

Ora7

STEP5:- Wait for pre-requisites check to complete and then press Finish

Ora9

STEP 6:- After this database configuration assistant will popup. Here   click on the Password Management button

Ora10

unlock the following accounts and provide the same password you provided in STEP4 above.

SYS, SYSTEM and SCOTT

Ora11

STEP7:- This will complete the installation of Oracle 11g on your windows 7 machine

Ora12

Now we will create schemas for Informatica Domain and Informatica Repository databases. We will also provide some grants required for Informatica to install repository on this database

STEP8:- Goto command prompt on the windows 7 machine and type sqlplus on command line

Enter the username and password.

Username :- sys as sysdba

Password:- As in step 4

Ora13

STEP9:- Create schema for Informatica Domain

Schema name:- infa_dom

Identified by: – infa_dom

Command:- create user info_dom identified by info_dom

Ora14

I have kept the password same as Schema Name for simplicity. You can give anything you like but do note it down as we will need this during Informatica server installation.

Run the following grants after user is created

Grant resource, dba to infa_dom;

Ora15

STEP10:- Follow similar steps to create schema for Informatica Repository database

Schema Name :- infa_rep

Identified By :- infa_rep

Grant resource, dba to infa_rep;

Ora16

Keep the passwords safe for infa_rep and infa_dom schemas that we just created. We will use it while installing the Informatica Server.

This completes the Oracle 11g installation and configuration of database for Informatica installation. Please see part 3 of this post to continue with the Informatica Server installation.

  1. HI Raghav,
    Thanks very much for nice tutorial. when i was creating infa_rep and infa_dom user, it didnt ask any password .
    I just got that “user Created”.In this case what password i need to enter while installing server and client.

  2. Hi Raghav,

    I have a question about licencing Informatica PowerCenter.
    Let’s assume that I’ve my own personal oracle account and I download the Informatica software from http://edelivery.oracle.com
    Are you sure I do not pay for anything?

    Sorry for my english 🙂
