Before You Begin

Before You Begin

Before you create a PowerCenter Repository Service, complete the following tasks:
  • Determine repository requirements. Determine whether the repository needs to be version-enabled and whether it is a local, global, or standalone repository.
  • Verify license. Verify that you have a valid license to run application services. Although you can create a PowerCenter Repository Service without a license, you need a license to run the service. In addition, you need a license to configure some options related to version control and high availability.
  • Determine code page. Determine the code page to use for the PowerCenter repository. The PowerCenter Repository Service uses the character set encoded in the repository code page when writing data to the repository. The repository code page must be compatible with the code pages for the PowerCenter Client and all application services in the Informatica domain.
    After you create the PowerCenter Repository Service, you cannot change the code page in the PowerCenter Repository Service properties. To change the repository code page after you create the PowerCenter Repository Service, back up the repository and restore it to a new PowerCenter Repository Service. When you create the new PowerCenter Repository Service, you can specify a compatible code page.
