Using the Command Line Programs Overview

Using the Command Line Programs Overview

Informatica includes command line programs that you use to complete tasks from any machine in the Informatica environment. The command line programs allow you to run a subset of tasks that you can complete in Informatica Administrator.
For example, you can enable or disable a Repository Service from the Administrator tool or the infacmd command line program.
Informatica includes the following command line programs:
  • infacmd
    . Use infacmd to access the Informatica application services.
  • infasetup
    . Use infasetup to complete installation tasks such as defining a node or a domain.
  • pmcmd
    . Use pmcmd to manage workflows. You can start, stop, schedule, and monitor workflows using pmcmd.
  • pmrep
    . Use pmrep to complete repository administration tasks such as listing repository objects, creating and editing groups, and restoring and deleting repositories.
  • mmcmd
    . Use mmcmd to load and manage resources and to import and export models and custom resources.
  • mmRepoCmd
    . Use mmRepoCmd to create, delete, back up, and restore Metadata Manager repository contents. You can also restore a PowerCenter repository back-up file that contains Metadata Manager objects to the PowerCenter repository database.
  • rmu
    . Use rmu to migrate resources from a previous version of Metadata Manager to the current version.
  • rcfmu
    . Use rcfmu to migrate a resource configuration file from a previous version of Metadata Manager to the current version.
To run command line programs on UNIX, you may need to set the library path environment variable to the location of the Informatica utilities.
For ease of use, you can configure environment variables that apply each time you run the command line programs.
For example, you can set an environment variable for the default domain name, user, and password to avoid typing the options at the command line.
