Operating Mode

Operating Mode

You can run the PowerCenter Repository Service in normal or exclusive operating mode. When you run the PowerCenter Repository Service in normal mode, you allow multiple users to access the repository to update content. When you run the PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode, you allow only one user to access the repository. Set the operating mode to exclusive to perform administrative tasks that require a single user to access the repository and update the configuration. If a PowerCenter Repository Service has no content associated with it or if a PowerCenter Repository Service has content that has not been upgraded, the PowerCenter Repository Service runs in exclusive mode only.
When the PowerCenter Repository Service runs in exclusive mode, it accepts connection requests from the Administrator tool and
pmrep
.
Run a PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode to perform the following administrative tasks:
  • Delete repository content. Delete the repository database tables for the PowerCenter repository.
  • Enable version control. If you have the team-based development option, you can enable version control for the repository. A versioned repository can store multiple versions of an object.
  • Promote a PowerCenter repository. Promote a local repository to a global repository to build a repository domain.
  • Register a local repository. Register a local repository with a global repository to create a repository domain.
  • Register a plug-in. Register or unregister a repository plug-in that extends PowerCenter functionality.
  • Upgrade the PowerCenter repository. Upgrade the repository metadata.
Before running a PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode, verify that all users are disconnected from the repository. You must stop and restart the PowerCenter Repository Service to change the operating mode.
When you run a PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode, repository agent caching is disabled, and you cannot assign privileges and roles to users and groups for the PowerCenter Repository Service.
You cannot use
pmrep
to log in to a new PowerCenter Repository Service running in exclusive mode if the Service Manager has not synchronized the list of users and groups in the repository with the list in the domain configuration database. To synchronize the list of users and groups, restart the PowerCenter Repository Service.
