Review the Prerequisites

Temporary Disk Space Requirements


The installer writes temporary files to the hard disk. Verify that you have enough available disk space on the machine to support the installation. When the installation completes, the installer deletes the temporary files and releases the disk space. The following table describes the temporary disk space requirements during installation:
Product Installer Informatica Services Operating System Windows or UNIX UNIX Windows Informatica Clients Windows Disk Space 1 GB 2 GB 605 MB 550 MB

Verify the File Descriptor Settings


On UNIX or Linux, verify that the operating system meets the file descriptor requirement. Informatica service processes can use a large number of files. Set the file descriptor limit per process to 3000 or higher.

Verify Environment Variables


Configure the environment variables to work with the Informatica installation. Incorrectly configured environment variables can cause the Informatica installation to fail. The installer appends file paths required by Informatica to the PATH environment variable. Verify that the length of the PATH environment variable does not exceed the system limits and that the variable does not contain double quotes. On UNIX, create the environment variables with the system user account that you will use for installation. Log in with the account that you plan to use to install Informatica, and then create the environment variables.

Chapter 2: Before You Upgrade the Domain and Server Files

The following table describes environment variables you configure before you install:
Variable Operating System Windows UNIX Description

IATEMPDIR (InstallAnywhere)

Location of temporary files created during installation. Informatica requires 1 GB disk space for temporary files. Configure the environment variable if you do not want to create temporary files in the following locations: - /tmp directory on UNIX - default drive on Windows Clear the JRE_HOME environment variable.

JRE_HOME

SUSE Linux Linux EMT64 UNIX UNIX

Locale environment variables DISPLAY

Use LANG and LC_ALL to set the UNIX code page. Location of the graphics display server such as X Window Server. Required to install in graphical mode.

Locale Environment Variables


Use LANG and LC_ALL to set the UNIX code page for the installer. Set the LANG and LC_ALL environment variables to the following values for the language that you use:
Language English Japanese Portuguese Value C ja_JP.SJIS or ja_JP.PCK pt_BR.ISO8859-1, pt_BR.8859-15, or pt_BR

After you install, update the locale setting to one that is compatible with the code page of the repository.

JRE_HOME
If you install Informatica Services on a machine with 32-bit or 64-bit SUSE Linux or Linux EMT64 operating system, clear the JRE_HOME environment variable before you start the installation.

Set Up the X Window Server


When you run the Informatica installer in graphical mode, you must use a graphics display server. On UNIX, the graphics display server is typically an X Window server. If you do not have the X Window server installed on the machine where you want to install Informatica, you can install Informatica using an X Window server installed on another machine. Use the DISPLAY variable to redirect output of the X Window server to another UNIX machine.

Verify Environment Variables

The following table lists the commands to set the DISPLAY environment variable:
Shell C Bash/Korn Bourne Command setenv DISPLAY <TCP/IP node of XWindow server>:0 export DISPLAY=<TCP/IP node of XWindow server>:0 DISPLAY=<TCP/IP node of XWindow server>:0 export display Example setenv DISPLAY 10.1.50.23:0 export DISPLAY=10.1.50.23:0 DISPLAY=10.1.50.23:0 export display

If you do not know the IP address of a UNIX machine where the X Window server is installed, ask your network administrator. For more information about redirecting the DISPLAY variable, see the documentation from the UNIX vendor. If the X Window server does not support the font that the Informatica installer uses, the installer can display incorrect labels on the buttons. For example, the button labeled Test Connection can appear as Test Connecti....

Clear Environment Variables


Clear environment variables from previous Informatica versions before you upgrade. Incorrectly configured environment variables can cause the domain or nodes to fail to start or can cause connection problems between Informatica clients and the domain.

Clear PATH statements


Verify that the existing environment variables do not contain earlier versions of Informatica in the PATH or library path environment variables and that the path does not contain double quotes.

Clear INFA_HOME
Designates the Informatica installation directory.

Clear INFA_DOMAINS_FILE
Designates the location of domains.infa on the machine where you install the Informatica server components or the Informatica clients.

Prepare the Domain


Before you upgrade the domain, complete the steps to prepare the domain. 1. 2. 3. Migrate to a supported database. Back up the domain. Verify the domain configuration repository requirements.

Chapter 2: Before You Upgrade the Domain and Server Files

Migrate to a Supported Database


If the domain configuration is in a Sybase ASE database, you must migrate the domain configuration to an IBM DB2 UDB, Microsoft SQL Server, or Oracle database. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Shut down all application services in the domain. Shut down the domain. Back up the domain configuration. Run the infasetup BackupDomain command to back up the domain configuration to an XML file. Create a database user account in a supported database. Restore the domain configuration backup to the database user account. Run the infasetup RestoreDomain command to restore the domain configuration to the new database. The RestoreDomain command restores the domain configuration in the backup XML file to the specified database user account. Update the database connection for each gateway node. Gateway nodes must have a connection to the domain configuration repository to retrieve and update domain configuration. Run the infasetup UpdateGatewayNode command on each gateway node to update the gateway node to reflect the new database details. Start all nodes in the domain. Enable all application services in the domain.

6.

7. 8.

Back Up the Domain


Before you upgrade the domain, you must back up the domain. Complete the following steps to back up the domain:
Run the infasetup BackupDomain command to back up the domain configuration repository to a file. Back up the metadata configuration files to any directory accessible by the machines where you install

Informatica.

Prepare the Domain

The following table describes the metadata files and the locations where you can find them:
Metadata File nodemeta.xml Description Contains metadata for a node. Location Stored in the server/config directory on each node in the domain. If you use the same backup directory name on all the nodes, rename nodemeta.xml before copying it to the backup location. For example, you back up nodemeta.xml to the /nodebak directory on nodeA and nodeB. Rename the configuration files so that on nodeA the file is backed up to /nodebak/nodemeta_A.xml, and on nodeB the file is backed up to /nodebak/nodemeta_B.xml. Stored in one of the following locations: - The Informatica installation directory on the client and server machines. - The location configured through the INFA_DOMAINS_FILE environment variable.

domains.infa

Contains connectivity information for the gateway nodes.

Verify the Domain Configuration Repository Requirements


Use the following rules and guidelines to verify the domain configuration repository database and user account requirements:
The database must be accessible to all gateway nodes in the Informatica domain. The domain configuration can be in the same database schema as the PowerCenter, Metadata Manager, or

Data Analyzer repositories.


If you create more than one domain, each domain configuration database must have a separate user account.

Oracle Database Requirements


Use the following guidelines when you set up the database on Oracle:
Set the open_cursors parameter to 1000. The database user account must have the CONNECT, RESOURCE, and CREATE VIEW privileges.

IBM DB2 Database Requirements


Use the following guidelines when you set up the repository on IBM DB2:
On the IBM DB2 instance where you create the database, set the following parameters to ON: - DB2_SKIPINSERTED - DB2_EVALUNCOMMITTED

10

Chapter 2: Before You Upgrade the Domain and Server Files

- DB2_SKIPDELETED - AUTO_RUNSTATS On the database, set the following configuration parameters: Parameter applheapsz appl_ctl_heap_sz logfilsiz DynamicSections maxlocks locklist auto_stmt_stats Value 8192 8192 8000 1000 98 50000 ON Note: For IBM DB2 9.5 only

Set the tablespace pageSize parameter to 32768.

In a single-partition database, specify a tablespace that meets the pageSize requirements. If you do not specify a tablespace, the default tablespace must meet the pageSize requirements. In a multi-partition database, you must specify a tablespace that meets the pageSize requirements. Define the tablespace on a single node.
The database user account must have the CREATETAB and CONNECT privileges.

Note: The default value for DynamicSections in DB2 is too low for the Informatica domain configuration repository and Model repository. Informatica requires a larger DB2 package than the default. When you set up the DB2 database for the domain configuration repository or a Model repository, you must set the DynamicSections parameter to at least 1000. If the DynamicSections parameter is set to a lower number, you can encounter problems when you install Informatica or when you work with the Analyst tool or Developer tool. The following error message can appear:
[informatica][DB2 JDBC Driver]No more available statements. Please recreate your package with a larger dynamicSections value.

Microsoft SQL Server Database Requirements


Use the following guidelines when you set up the repository on Microsoft SQL Server:
Set the read committed isolation level to READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT to minimize locking contention.

To set the isolation level for the database, run the following command:
ALTER DATABASE DatabaseName SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT ON

To verify that the isolation level for the database is correct, run the following command:
SELECT is_read_committed_snapshot_on FROM sys.databases WHERE name = DatabaseName The database user account must have the CONNECT, CREATE TABLE, and CREATE VIEW permissions.

Prepare the Domain

Domain and Server Files Upgrade Overview, 18 Upgrading in Graphical Mode, 18 Upgrading in Console Mode, 21 Upgrading in Silent Mode, 22 Troubleshooting the Domain Upgrade, 25

Domain and Server Files Upgrade Overview


Use the server installer to upgrade the server files and domain of a previous version of your Informatica product. The server installer provides a domain upgrade wizard to guide you through the upgrade process. The upgrade wizard installs the Informatica 9.0.1 files in the installation directory you specify. It does not modify the files in the directory of the previous version. The upgrade wizard reads the domain information from files in the previous version and uses the same settings to configure the domain and server files for Informatica 9.0.1. It upgrades the tables of the domain configuration repository in the same database as the previous version. Complete the pre-upgrade tasks before you start the upgrade. Run the installer on all machines that host previous versions of Informatica that you want to upgrade. On Windows, you can upgrade in graphical or silent mode. On UNIX, you can upgrade in graphical, console, or silent mode. Note: On UNIX, use GNU tar to extract the installation files. If the install.sh file does not have sufficient permissions to run after you extract the installation files, use the chmod command to add execute permissions to the file. Then run the file with the command ./install.sh.

Upgrading in Graphical Mode


You can upgrade the Informatica domain and server files in graphical mode on Windows or UNIX. 1. 2. 3. Verify that your environment meets the minimum system requirements and complete the pre-upgrade tasks. Log in to the machine with the same user account that you used to install the previous version. Close all other applications.

Property Database type Database user ID User password Tablespace Description Database for the domain configuration repository. Database user account for the domain configuration repository. Password for the database user account. Displayed for IBM DB2 only. Name of the tablespace for the upgraded domain configuration repository tables. If the database of the domain configuration repository that you are upgrading does not use a 32 K tablespace, this property is blank. Enter the name of a tablespace with a page size of 32 K. In a single-partition database, if you do not specify a tablespace name, the installer writes the upgraded tables in the default tablespace. The default tablespace must be 32 K. In a multi-partition database, you must specify a 32 K tablespace.

Upgrading in Graphical Mode

19

The upgrade wizard displays the database connection string for the domain configuration repository based on how the connection string of the previous version was created at installation:
If the previous version used a JDBC URL at installation, the upgrade wizard displays the JDBC connection

properties, including the database address and service name.


If the previous version used a custom JDBC connection string at installation, the upgrade wizard displays

the custom connection string. Optionally, you can specify additional JDBC parameters to include in the connection string. To provide additional JDBC parameters, select JDBC parameters and enter a valid JDBC parameter string. 12. 13. Click Test Connection to verify that you can connect to the database, and then click OK to continue. Click Next. On the Port Configuration Upgrade window, the upgrade wizard displays the default port numbers assigned to the domain and node components. 14. You can specify new port numbers or use the default port numbers. The following table describes the ports that you can specify:

22

Chapter 3: Domain and Server Files Upgrade

Creating the Properties File


Informatica provides a sample properties file that includes the upgrade parameters that are required by the installer. You can customize the sample properties file to specify the options for your upgrade. The sample upgrade properties file is named SilentInput_upgrade.properties and is located in the root directory of the installation DVD or the installer download location. After you customize the file, save it with the file name SilentInput.properties. 1. 2. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files. Locate the file named SilentInput_upgrade.properties. Back up the file before you modify it. 3. Use a text editor to open the file and modify the values of the upgrade parameters. The following table describes the upgrade parameters that you can modify:
Property Name INSTALL_TYPE Description Indicates whether to install or upgrade Informatica. If the value is 0, the installer performs a fresh installation of Informatica 9.0.1. If the value is 1, the installer upgrades a previous version of Informatica to version 9.0.1. Directory in which to install Informatica 9.0.1. The directory cannot be the same as the directory that contains the previous version of PowerCenter. Directory that contains the previous version of PowerCenter that you want to upgrade. For IBM DB2 only. Name of the tablespace in which to create the tables. If this parameter is empty, the installer creates the tables in the default tablespace. In a multipartition database, the tablespace page size must be 32 K. Define the database in a single-node tablespace to optimize performance. You can set this parameter if DB_CUSTOM_STRING_SELECTION=0. Optional parameters to include in the JDBC URL connection string. Verify that the parameter string is valid. The installer does not validate the parameter string before it adds the string to the JDBC URL. If this parameter is empty, the installer creates the JDBC URL without additional parameters. Indicates whether to display the list of port numbers for the domain and node components. If the value is 0, the installer assigns default port numbers to the domain and node components. If the value is 1, you can set the port numbers for the domain and node components. You can set this parameter if ADVANCE_PORT_CONFIG=1. Port number used by the Service Manager on the node. The Service Manager listens for incoming connection requests on this port. Client applications use this port to communicate with the services in the domain. This is the port that the Informatica command line programs use to communicate to the domain. This is also the port for the SQL data service JDBC/ODBC driver. You can set this parameter if ADVANCE_PORT_CONFIG=1. Port number used by the Administrator tool.

Property Name AC_SHUTDWN_PORT

Description You can set this parameter if ADVANCE_PORT_CONFIG=1. Port number that controls server shutdown for the Administrator tool. The Administrator tool listens for shutdown commands on this port. For upgrades from version 8.x. You can set this option when you run the installer again after a failed upgrade. The installer starts the domain upgrade process from the beginning and overrides all previous upgrades to the domain. It also overrides any upgrade contention if other administrators are upgrading nodes in the domain at the same time.

FORCE_UPGRADE

4.

On Windows, specify whether to run the Informatica service under the same user account as the account used for upgrade. Set the following parameters:
Property USE_LOGIN_DETAILS Description Indicates whether to run the Windows service under a different user account. If the value is 0, the installer configures the service to run under the current user account. If the value is 1, the installer configures the service to run under a different user account. User account with which to run the Informatica Windows service. Use the following format:
DomainName\UserAccount

WIN_USER_ID

This user account must have the Act as operating system permission. WIN_USER_PSSWD Password for the user account with which to run the Informatica Windows service.

5.

Save the properties file with the name SilentInput.properties.

Running the Silent Installer


After you create the properties file, open a command window to start the silent upgrade. 1. 2. 3. 4. Open a command window. Go to the root of the server installer directory. Verify that the directory contains the file SilentInput.properties with the upgrade options. To start the silent upgrade process, double click the file silentinstall.bat.

The silent upgrade runs in the background. The process can take a while. The silent upgrade process is complete when the Informatica_9.0.1_Services_InstallLog.log is created in the installation directory. The silent upgrade fails if you incorrectly configure the properties file or if the installation directory is not accessible. If the upgrade fails, view the installation log files and correct the errors. Then run the silent installer again.

24

Chapter 3: Domain and Server Files Upgrade

Troubleshooting the Domain Upgrade


If the upgrade does not complete successfully, review log files to determine the cause of the failure. The upgrade log files are in the root of the directory where the new version of Informatica is installed. Review the following log file: Informatica_<Version>_Services_Upgrade.log If the upgrade fails, it can result in an inconsistent domain configuration. You can run the installer again to resolve the inconsistent configuration and complete the upgrade process. When you run the installer again, select the Restart the Domain Configuration Upgrade option. The domain upgrade wizard starts the domain upgrade process from the beginning and overrides all previous upgrades to the domain. It also overrides any upgrade contention if other administrators are upgrading other nodes in the domain at the same time. Use the following guidelines when you run the installer after a failed upgrade:
Resolve the problem indicated in the upgrade logs before you run the installer again. Verify that there are no other administrators upgrading other nodes in the domain when you run the installer. If errors persist after you run the installer with the Restart the Domain Configuration Upgrade option, restore

the domain configuration repository database from backup and run the installer again.

CHAPTER 4

Before You Upgrade the Application Services


This chapter includes the following topics:
Configure POSIX Asynchronous I/O, 26 Configure Informatica Environment Variables, 26 Configure Locale Environment Variables, 27 Clear Browser Cache, 28 Configure Browser Bookmarks, 28

Configure POSIX Asynchronous I/O


If you install Informatica on IBM AIX, make POSIX Asynchronous I/O available on any node where you want to run a PowerCenter Integration Service. A PowerCenter Integration Service running on an IBM AIX machine can fail to start if POSIX Asynchronous I/O is not available.

Configure Informatica Environment Variables


You can configure the INFA_JAVA_OPTS, INFA_DOMAINS_FILE, and INFA_HOME environment variables to store memory, domain, and location settings. INFA_JAVA_OPTS By default, Informatica uses a maximum of 512 MB of system memory. You can use the INFA_JAVA_OPTS environment variable to configure the amount of system memory used by Informatica. For example, to configure 1 GB of system memory for the Informatica daemon on UNIX in a C shell, use the following command:
setenv INFA_JAVA_OPTS -Xmx1024m

On Windows, configure INFA_JAVA_OPTS as a system variable. On 64-bit HP-UX on Itanium, add the -d64 switch. Restart the node for the changes to take effect.

26

INFA_DOMAINS_FILE The installer creates a domains.infa file in the Informatica installation directory. The domains.infa file contains the connectivity information for the gateway nodes in a domain, including the domain names, domain host names, and domain host port numbers. Set the value of the INFA_DOMAINS_FILE variable to the path and file name of the domains.infa file. If you configure the INFA_DOMAINS_FILE variable, you can run infacmd and pmcmd from a directory other than /server/bin. Configure the INFA_DOMAINS_FILE variable on the machine where you install the Informatica services. On Windows, configure INFA_DOMAINS_FILE as a system variable. INFA_HOME Use INFA_HOME to designate the Informatica installation directory. If you modify the Informatica directory structure, you need to set the environment variable to the location of the Informatica installation directory or the directory where the installed Informatica files are located. For example, you use a softlink in UNIX for any of the Informatica directories. To configure INFA_HOME so that any Informatica application or service can locate the other Informatica components it needs to run, set INFA_HOME to the location of the Informatica installation directory.

Configure Locale Environment Variables


Use LANG, LC_CTYPE, or LC_ALL to set the UNIX code page. Verify that the locale setting is compatible with the code page for the repository. If the locale setting is not compatible with the repository code page, you cannot create a repository service. Different UNIX operating systems require different values for the same locale. The value for the locale variable is case sensitive. Use the following command to verify that the value for the locale environment variable is compatible with the language settings for the machine and the type of code page you want to use for the repository:
locale -a

The command returns the languages installed on the UNIX operating system and the existing locale settings. Locale on Linux All UNIX operating systems except Linux have a unique value for each locale. Linux allows different values to represent the same locale. For example, utf8, UTF-8, UTF8, and utf-8 represent the same locale on a Linux machine. Informatica requires that you use a specific value for each locale on a Linux machine. Make sure that you set the LANG environment variable appropriately for all Linux machines. Locale for Oracle Database Clients For Oracle database clients, set NLS_LANG to the locale you want the database client and server to use with the login. A locale setting consists of the language, territory, and character set. The value of NLS_LANG depends on the configuration. For example, if the value is american_america.UTF8, set the variable in a C shell with the following command:
setenv NLS_LANG american_america.UTF8

Configure Locale Environment Variables

27

Clear Browser Cache


Before you access the Administrator tool, clear the browser cache. On Windows Internet Explorer, delete the browsing history, including temporary files, cookies, and history. On Mozilla Firefox, clear the offline storage. If you do not clear the browser cache, the previous Administrator tool URL is not redirected to the latest URL and some menu options may not appear.

Configure Browser Bookmarks


Effective in version 9.0.1, the Administrator tool URL has changed. After you upgrade the domain, bookmarks to the Administrator tool are not valid. Configure bookmarks with one of the following URLs:
http://<host>:<port> http://<host>:<administrator_port>/administrator

CHAPTER 7

After You Upgrade


This chapter includes the following topics:
Informatica Domain, 35 PowerCenter Repository Service, 36 Post-Upgrade Tasks for PowerCenter 8.6.1, 36

Informatica Domain
After you upgrade, complete the post-upgrade tasks for the domain.

Configure LDAP Connectivity


If the domain uses LDAP authentication, update the LDAP configuration after you upgrade. Effective in version 9.0.1, the default maximum size for user import is set to 1000. Previously, the default value was set to 0, which indicated that there was no maximum value. When you upgrade, all users are imported into the domain. However, all users over 1000 will be dropped in reverse alphabetic order the next time the Service Manager synchronizes with the LDAP service directory. To avoid dropping users, reset the maximum size in the LDAP connectivity configuration.

Update the Log Events Directory


When you upgrade the domain, the log events directory points to the location you specified in the previous version. To use a different directory for the logs, update the Log Directory Path property for the domain in the Administrator tool. You can also use infasetup updateGatewaynode to update the directory. For example, you can configure the log events directory as the server/infa_shared/logs directory in the new installation directory.

Update ODBC Data Sources


The Informatica installation includes DataDirect 6.0 SP3 ODBC drivers. Re-create each ODBC data source to use the new drivers.

35

Update Statistics for the Domain Configuration Repository


If the domain configuration repository is in an IBM DB2 9.1 database, run the DB2 reorgchk command to optimize database operations. The reorgchk command generates the database statistics used by the DB2 optimizer in queries and updates. Use the following command:
REORGCHK UPDATE STATISTICS on SCHEMA SchemaName

View Log Events from the Previous Informatica Version


You can view the log events from the previous Informatica version to troubleshoot domain issues. The log event files for the previous version are located in <LogDirectoryPath>\<date>\<foldername>.bad. Effective in version 9.0.1, use infacmd isp ConvertLogFile command to view log files from PowerCenter 8.1.1, 8.5.x and 8.6.x. The infacmd isp ConvertLogFile command uses the following syntax:
ConvertLogFile <-InputFile|-in> input_file_name [<-Format|-fm> format_TEXT_XML] [<-OutputFile|-lo> output_file_name]

PowerCenter Repository Service


After you upgrade the PowerCenter Repository Service, the service remains in Exclusive mode. Change the operating mode of the PowerCenter Repository Service to Normal mode and restart the service.

Complete the additional post-upgrade steps for upgrades from PowerCenter 8.6.1.

Metadata Manager Service


After you upgrade, complete the post-upgrade tasks for each Metadata Manager Service.

Reload Metadata Manager Resources


Reload all relational database resources, PowerCenter resources, business intelligence resources, and data modeling resources.

Update the Metadata Manager Properties File


Compare the imm.properties file in the previous installation directory with the 9.0.1 version. Update the 9.0.1 version of the imm. properties file as required. The 9.0.1 version of the imm.properties file is in the following directory:

36

Chapter 7: After You Upgrade

<9.0.1 InformaticaInstallationDir>\tomcat\shared\class The 8.6.1 version of the imm.properties file is in the following directory: <8.6.1 InformaticaInstallationDir>\server\tomcat\shared\classes After you configure properties in imm.properties, disable and enable the Metadata Manager Service for the changes to take effect.

Reference Table Manager


After you upgrade a PowerCenter 8.6.1 domain, create reference tables in the Analyst tool using flat file reference table data. Before you import reference tables into the Analyst tool, create an Analyst Service. The Analyst Service is an application service that runs the Analyst tool. Import reference table data in the Analyst tool using the flat files that you exported from Reference Table Manager before you upgraded the domain.

Importing a Reference Table


Import a reference table from a delimited flat file. 1. 2. In the Navigator, select the project or folder where you want to create the reference table. Click Actions > New Reference Table. The New Reference Table Wizard appears. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Select the option to Import a flat file. Click Next. Click Browse to select the flat file. Click Upload to upload the file to a directory in the Informatica Services installation directory that the Analyst tool can access. Enter the table name, and optional description and default value. The Analyst tool uses the default value for any table record that does not contain a value. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. Select a code page that matches the data in the flat file. Preview the data in the Preview of file panel. Click Next. Configure the flat file properties. In the Preview panel, click Show to update the preview. Click Next.
