Registering a Local Repository

Registering a Local Repository

You can register local repositories with a global repository to create a repository domain.When you register a local repository, the code pages of the local and global repositories must be compatible. You can copy objects from the local repository to the global repository and create shortcuts. You can also copy objects from the global repository to the local repository.
If you unregister a repository from the global repository and register it again, the PowerCenter Repository Service re-establishes global shortcuts. For example, if you create a copy of the global repository and delete the original, you can register all local repositories with the copy of the global repository. The PowerCenter Repository Service reestablishes all global shortcuts unless you delete objects from the copied repository.
A separate PowerCenter Repository Service manages each repository. For example, if a repository domain has three local repositories and one global repository, it must have four PowerCenter Repository Services. The PowerCenter Repository Services and repository databases do not need to run on the same machine. However, you improve performance for repository transactions if the PowerCenter Repository Service process runs on the same machine where the repository database resides.
You can move a registered local or global repository to a different PowerCenter Repository Service in the repository domain or to a different Informatica domain.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. In the Domain Navigator, select the PowerCenter Repository Service associated with the local repository.
  3. If the PowerCenter Repository Service is running in normal mode, change the operating mode to exclusive.
  4. If the PowerCenter Repository Service is not enabled, click Enable.
  5. To register a local repository, on the
    Manage
    tab
    Actions
    menu, click Repository Domain > Register Local Repository. Continue to the next step. To unregister a local repository, on the
    Manage
    tab
    Actions
    menu, click Repository Domain > Unregister Local Repository. Skip to step 11.
  6. Select the Informatica domain of the PowerCenter Repository Service for the global repository.
    If the PowerCenter Repository Service is in a domain that does not appear in the list of Informatica domains, click Manage Domain List to update the list.
    The Manage List of Domains dialog box appears.
  7. To add a domain to the list, enter the following information:
    Field
    Description
    Domain Name
    Name of a Informatica Domain that you want to link to.
    Host Name
    Machine hosting the master gateway node for the linked domain. The machine hosting the master gateway for the local Informatica Domain must have a network connection to this machine.
    Host Port
    Gateway port number for the linked domain.
  8. Click Add to add more than one domain to the list, and repeat step 7 for each domain.
    To edit the connection information for a linked domain, go to the section for the domain you want to update and click Edit.
    To remove a linked domain from the list, go to the section for the domain you want to remove and click Delete.
  9. Click Done to save the list of domains.
  10. Select the PowerCenter Repository Service for the global repository.
  11. Enter the user name, password, and security domain for the user who manages the global PowerCenter Repository Service.
    The Security Domain field appears when the Informatica Domain contains an LDAP security domain.
  12. Enter the user name, password, and security domain for the user who manages the local PowerCenter Repository Service.
  13. Click OK.
