Configuring the Properties File

Informatica provides a sample properties file that includes the properties required by the installer. Customize the sample properties file to create a properties file and specify the options for your installation. Then run the silent installation.
The sample SilentInput.properties file is stored in the root directory of the DVD or the installer download location.
  1. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files.
  2. Locate the sample
