How to install legitimate copy of Informatica v9.6.1 on windows 7 for personal use for free – Part 5

This is the fifth part of the 6 part guide which describes how to install Informatica PowerCenter 9.6.1 for personal use

  1. How to get and unpack the legitimate copies of the software packages (see Part 1)
  2. How to install Oracle 11g and create a database for Informatica repository and domain (see Part 2)
  3. How to install Informatica 9.6.1 server software (see Part 3)
  4. How to install Informatica 9.6.1 client software (see Part 4)
  5. How to create Informatica repository and integration services
  6. How to test whether the setup is working (see Part 6)

Click here for previous post which describes How to install Informatica 9.6.1 client software

In this post I will describe how to create and configure Informatica repository and integration services

This is where we get to login to the Informatica Admin Console

So lets get started!!

STEP1:- Open Informatica Admin console by going to following path

Start->All Programs-> Informatica 9.6.1 -> Server -> Informatica Administrator Home Page

If browser security stops the site from opening (which is hosted locally) you can bypass it and go ahead anyways. You will get below screen, where you will login using Administrator user and password which you created while installing the Informatica Server (see Part 3 – Step10)

Infa22

STEP2:- Creating a Repository Service. You will see the screen below, here click on Actions->New->PowerCenter Repository Service.

Infa23

 

STEP3:- Fill in the details as in the screenshot below and press Next

Infa24

STEP4:- Fill in the details as in the screenshot below and press Finish. Use the infa_rep schema password you created while installing Oracle 11g database. See Part 2 Step 10.

Infa26

This will create the repository service and start it in the exclusive mode. Keep the repository service in exclusive mode until we have created the integration service and are ready for connectivity from the client. Once we are ready we will recycle the repository service in Normal mode.

STEP5:- Creating Integration Service. Again go to Actions->New->PoweCenter Integration Service

Infa23

STEP6:- Fill in the details as in screenshot below and press Next

Infa28

STEP7:- In the next screen select the INFA_REP_DEV repository that we created in previous steps and provide Administrator username and password and press Finish

STEP8:- In the next dialogue box select the code page

Infa30

This will create and start the Integration service. Now we are ready to bring the repository service in Normal mode

STEP9:- Recycle the Repository service to start in Normal mode. Click on the repository service on the left hand many in Domain Navigator. Click the edit icon Repository properties and select Normal mode from drop down.

Recycle

 

Recycle2

 

This completes the setup of the repository and integration services. Now we are ready to connect the clients to the services and do a test run which I will describe in my next and final post in this series.

To Informatica Nirvana!!!

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.

How to install legitimate copy of Informatica v9.6.1 on windows 7 for personal use for free – Part 1

Recently I installed Informatica v9.6.1 and Oracle 11g (for repository database) on a windows 7 virtual machine on my macbook air. Here I will be sharing a step by step guide on how you can also install latest Informatica PowerCenter software for personal use. I am assuming you already have a windows 7 machine, either virtual or dedicated, hence I will be leaving it out of this guide.

As this is a long process I am dividing this guide into 6 parts. Each covering one of the below topics needed for the installation.

  1. How to get and unpack the legitimate copies of the software packages
  2. How to install Oracle 11g and create a database for Informatica repository and domain (see Part 2)
  3. How to install Informatica 9.6.1 server software (see Part 3)
  4. How to install Informatica 9.6.1 client software (see Part 4)
  5. How to create Informatica repository and integration services(see Part5)
  6. How to test whether the setup is working (see Part 6)

So we start with the first step

How to get and unpack the legitimate copies of the software packages for free

STEP1:- Head over to the Oracle cloud delivery link:-  Oracle Coud Delivery

STEP2:- Sign In if you already have an account or register for free if you don’t have one

STEP3:- After logging in accept the terms and conditions then select the following options in the subsequent screen

STEP4:- Download Oracle 11g by selecting options as shown in the screenshot below. Use 32 bit software if you have a 32 bit windows

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.15.17 PM

Press Go and you will get following options, select the one highlighted below

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.15.44 PM

 

Download the below two packages from the next screen

 

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.16.08 PM

 

It will take a while to download, meanwhile follow next steps to get the Informatica package 9.6.1.

STEP5:- Download Informatica 9.6.1 package from the same Oracle Cloud delivery portal as in step 1

STEP6:- Select the options as shown in the following screenshots to get the PowerCenter 9.6.1 package

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.16.43 PM

Press Go and select following from subsequent screen

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.16.56 PM

Then download the following four files from the list in subsequent screen

Screen Shot 2015-08-10 at 2.17.11 PM

This is an even bigger download than the Oracle package and it may take a while before you are ready for the unpacking of the software

STEP7:- After the Oracle 11g files are download unpack the package. You will have two files which you need to select together and unzip into the same folder. Ignore if there are any errors and just skip to next file.

Ora1

Select both the files and unzip into same folder

You will get a folder named database in the directory containing the zip files. Go inside the database folder and you will see the setup file

Ora2

You can run the setup file now and follow the instructions in the Part 2 of this post. Remainder of this post will describe unpacking the Informatica 9.6.1 package which is bit more involved process than the Oracle unpacking

STEP8:- Unpacking Informatica PowerCenter 9.6.1 package. You would have downloaded following four files as part of Step6 above

Infa1

 

Select all four files and unzip into the same folder. You will get following four files after unzipping.  There will be one more zip and three accompanying files

Infa2

Unzip the zipped file into the same folder. This will use the other three files during the unzipping process. Ignore and skip if there are any errors during unzipping. You will get the following 5 files in your directory

Infa3

Oracle_All_OS_Prod.key – This is the never expiring license file for the Informatica PowerCenter 9.6.1 package. We will need this while installing the server file

961_Server_Installer_winem-64t – This zip file contains the server software which we need to install to run the Informatica PowerCenter Server. Unzip the file into a subdirectory named InfaServer (create new) to get the following files in it. We will use the install file in this directory to install the server. Please refer Part 3 of this post to find instruction for installing the server.

INfa5

961_Client_Installer_win32-x86 – This zip file contains the client software (Designer, Monitor, Workflow Manager etc). We will install this after installing the server software.  Unzip the file into a subdirectory named InfaClient (create new) to get the following files in it. We will use the install file in this directory to install the Informatica clients. Please refer to Part 4 of this post to find instructions for installing the clients.

Infa6

 

This concludes Part 1 of this Post. We are ready with all the installer files to install PowerCenter 9.6.1 on our windows 7 machine.

Please follow Part 2 of this post to start the Oracle 11g installation and configure the database to be used as Informatica Repository.
