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)

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!!!
