Configuring a Metadata Manager Service

Configuring a Metadata Manager Service

You can create and configure a Metadata Manager Service and the related components in the Administrator tool.
The procedure to configure the Metadata Manager Service varies based on the operating mode of the PowerCenter Repository Service and on whether the PowerCenter repository contents are created or not.
  1. Set up the Metadata Manager repository database. Set up a database for the Metadata Manager repository. You supply the database information when you create the Metadata Manager Service.
  2. Create a PowerCenter Repository Service and PowerCenter Integration Service (Optional). You can use an existing PowerCenter Repository Service and PowerCenter Integration Service, or you can create them. If want to create the application services to use with Metadata Manager, create the services in the following order:
    1. PowerCenter Repository Service. Create a PowerCenter Repository Service but do not create contents. Start the PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode.
    2. PowerCenter Integration Service. Create the PowerCenter Integration Service. The service will not start because the PowerCenter Repository Service does not have content. You enable the PowerCenter Integration Service after you create and configure the Metadata Manager Service.
  3. Create the Metadata Manager Service. Use the Administrator tool to create the Metadata Manager Service.
  4. Configure the Metadata Manager Service. Configure the properties for the Metadata Manager Service.
  5. Create repository contents. The steps to create repository contents differ based on the code page of the Metadata Manager and PowerCenter repositories.
    If the code page is Latin-based, then create contents for the Metadata Manager repository and restore the PowerCenter repository. Use the Metadata Manager Service
    Actions
    menu to create the contents for both repositories.
    If the code page is not Latin-based, then create the repository contents in the following order:
    1. Restore the PowerCenter repository. Use the Metadata Manager Service
      Actions
      menu to restore the PowerCenter repository. When you restore the PowerCenter repository, enable the option to automatically restart the PowerCenter Repository Service in normal mode.
    2. Create the Metadata Manager repository contents. Use the Metadata Manager Service
      Actions
      menu to create the contents.
  6. Enable the PowerCenter Integration Service. Enable the associated PowerCenter Integration Service for the Metadata Manager Service.
  7. Optionally, create a Reporting Service. To run reports on the Metadata Manager repository, create a Reporting Service. After you create the Reporting Service, you can log in to Data Analyzer and run reports against the Metadata Manager repository.
  8. Optionally, create a Reporting and Dashboards Service. To run reports on the Metadata Manager repository, create a Reporting and Dashboards Service. After you create a Reporting and Dashboards Service, add a reporting source to run reports against the data in the data source.
  9. Enable the Metadata Manager Service. Enable the Metadata Manager Service in the Informatica domain.
  10. Create or assign users. Create users and assign them privileges for the Metadata Manager Service, or assign existing users privileges for the Metadata Manager Service.
You can use a Metadata Manager Service and the associated Metadata Manager repository in one Informatica domain. After you create the Metadata Manager Service and Metadata Manager repository in one domain, you cannot create a second Metadata Manager Service to use the same Metadata Manager repository. You also cannot back up and restore the repository to use with a different Metadata Manager Service in a different domain.
