Running Commands

Running Commands

Invoke infacmd from the command line. You can issue commands directly or from a script, batch file, or other program.
To run infacmd commands:
  1. At the command prompt, switch to the directory where the infacmd executable is located.
    By default, infacmd installs in the following directory of the Informatica services installation:
    <Informatica installation directory>/isp/bin
    You can also install infacmd from the Informatica Installation DVD.
  2. Enter
    on Windows or
    on UNIX followed by the plugin ID, the command name, and the required options and arguments. The command names are not case sensitive.
    For example:
    infacmd(.sh) plugin_ID CommandName [-option1] argument_1 [-option2] argument_2...Command Options
When you run infacmd, you enter options for each command, followed by the required arguments. For example, most commands require that you enter the domain name, user name, and password using command options. Command options are preceded with a hyphen and are not case sensitive. Arguments follow the option.
To enter an argument that is preceded with a hyphen, enclose the argument in quotation marks using the backslash (\) as an escape character before each quotation mark. For example, the following command writes the log for the mapping run with the job ID "-qnLI7G_TEeW9olHBkc9hoA" to the file "MyLog.log" within the infacmd directory on Windows:
infacmd ms GetRequestLog -dn MyDomain -sn MyDIS -un AdminUser -pd password -id \"-qnLI7G_TEeW9olHBkc9hoA\" -f MyLog.log
If you omit or incorrectly enter one of the required options, the command fails and infacmd returns an error message.
You can use environment variables for some command options with infacmd.
For example, you can store the default user name and password for a domain as environment variables so that you do not have to enter them using command options.
Configure these variables before you use infacmd.
