Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Create the Interactive Data Preparation Service

Create the
Interactive Data Preparation Service

When you install
Enterprise Data Preparation
on a gateway node, you can create the
Interactive Data Preparation Service
and the
Enterprise Data Preparation
Service during installation.
If you do not create the
Enterprise Data Preparation
Service and the
Interactive Data Preparation Service
during installation, or if you install
Enterprise Data Preparation
on another node in the domain, you can use the Administrator tool to create the services after you install the
Enterprise Data Preparation
binaries.
  1. Specify the name of the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    .
    The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters: ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
  2. If you plan to use rules, you must associate a Model Repository Service and a Data Integration Service with the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    .
    • To skip associating a Model Repository Service and a Data Integration Service with the service, press
      1
      .
    • To associate a Model Repository Service and a Data Integration Service with the service, press
      2
      , and then enter the service names.
  3. Choose whether to enable secure communication for the service.
    • To enable secure communication, press
      1
      .
    • To disable secure communication, press
      2
      .
  4. If you enable secure communication for the service, select the SSL certificate to use.
    • To use the default Informatica SSL certificate contained in the default keystore and the default truststore, press
      1
      .
    • To use a custom SSL certificate contained in a custom keystore and truststore, press
      2
      , and then enter the path and file name for the keystore and truststore files. You must also enter the keystore and truststore passwords.
  5. If you enable secure communication for the service, enter the port number for the HTTPS connection. If you enable non-secure communication for the service, enter the port number for the HTTP connection.
  6. Select the Hadoop authentication mode.
    • To select the simple authentication mode, press
      1
      .
    • To select Kerberos authentication, press
      2
      .
  7. If you select Kerberos, enter the authentication parameters.
    The following table describes the authentication parameters that you must set if you select Kerberos:
    Property
    Description
    HDFS Principal Name
    Service Principal Name (SPN) for the data preparation Hadoop cluster.
    Hadoop Impersonation User Name
    User name to use in Hadoop impersonation as shown in the Impersonation User Name property for the Hadoop connection in the Administrator tool.
    If the Hadoop cluster uses Kerberos authentication, the Hadoop impersonation user must have read, write, and execute permissions on the HDFS storage location folder.
    Kerberos Keytab File
    Path and file name of the SPN keytab file for the user account to impersonate when connecting to the Hadoop cluster. The keytab file must be in a directory on the machine where the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    runs.
    Fully Qualified Path to the Kerberos Configuration File
    Path to the krb5.conf Kerberos configuration file.
  8. Specify the HDFS storage location, HDFS connection, and local storage location details.
    The following table describes the properties you must set:
    Property
    Description
    HDFS Storage Location
    HDFS location for data preparation file storage. If the Hadoop cluster uses Kerberos authentication, the Hadoop impersonation user must have read, write, and execute permissions on the HDFS storage location folder.
    Local Storage Location
    Directory for data preparation file storage on the node where the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    runs. If the connection to the local storage fails, the service recovers data preparation files from the HDFS storage location.
  9. Specify the logging options.
    The following table describes the properties you must set:
    Property
    Description
    Log Severity
    Severity of messages to include in the logs. Select from one of the following values:

    • WARNING. Writes FATAL, WARNING, and ERROR messages to the log. WARNING errors include recoverable system failures or warnings.
    • INFO. Writes FATAL, INFO, WARNING, and ERROR messages to the log. INFO messages include system and service change messages.
    • TRACE. Write FATAL, TRACE, INFO, WARNING, and ERROR code messages to the log. TRACE messages log user request failures.
    • DEBUG. Write FATAL, DEBUG, TRACE, INFO, WARNING, and ERROR messages to the log. DEBUG messages are user request logs.
    Log Directory
    Location of the directory of log files.
  10. Specify the advanced options.
    The following table describes the properties you must set:
    Property
    Description
    Model Repository Service Name
    Name of the Model Repository Service. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters: ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    You cannot change the name of the service after you create it.
    Data Integration Service Name
    Name of the Data Integration Service.
    HDFS Connection
    HDFS connection for data preparation file storage.
  11. Choose whether to enable the service.
