Installation Guide

Download and Extract the Installer Files

The installer files are compressed and distributed as a .zip file for Windows and a .tar file for UNIX. You need to download installers for Proactive Monitoring for PowerCenter (Proactive Monitoring) and the Informatica command line utilities.
Make sure that you download the file to a local directory or a shared network drive that is mapped on your machine. You can then extract the installer files. However, you cannot run the installer from a mapped file. Copy the extracted files to a local drive and then run the installer.
Download the following installers:
Proactive Monitoring for PowerCenter
You can download the Proactive Monitoring installer in the following ways:
  • Installation DVD. Download the compressed file from the installation DVD to a directory on your machine and then extract the installer files, or extract the installer files directly from the DVD to a directory on your machine. If you download the compressed file to a directory on your machine, verify the length of the entire installation directory path, including the compressed file name, is 60 characters or less.
  • HTTP. Download the compressed file from the Informatica Electronic Software Download site to a directory on your machine and then extract the installer files.
Command line utilities
If you want the installer to validate the domain and create PowerCenter metadata, you must download and extract the command line utilities. You can download the command line utilities through FTP. Download the compressed file from the Informatica Electronic Software Download site to a directory on your machine and then extract the installer files. Verify that you download the version of the utilities associated with the version of PowerCenter that you plan to monitor.
On Windows, use a zip utility to extract the installer files to a directory on your machine. Verify the zip utility version is compatible with the Windows operating system version. When you unzip the file, verify that the zip utility also extracts empty folders.
On UNIX, use a native tar or GNU tar utility to extract the installer files to a directory on your machine. The user that runs the installer must have read and write permissions on the installer files directory and execute permissions on install.sh.
