Creating a PowerCenter Integration Service

Creating a PowerCenter Integration Service

You can create a PowerCenter Integration Service when you configure Informatica application services. You may need to create an additional PowerCenter Integration Service to replace an existing one or create multiple PowerCenter Integration Services.
You must assign a PowerCenter repository to the PowerCenter Integration Service. You can assign the repository when you create the PowerCenter Integration Service or after you create the PowerCenter Integration Service. You must assign a repository before you can run the PowerCenter Integration Service. The repository that you assign to the PowerCenter Integration Service is called the
associated repository
. The PowerCenter Integration Service retrieves metadata, such as workflows and mappings, from the associated repository.
After you create a PowerCenter Integration Service, you must assign a code page for each PowerCenter Integration Service process. The code page for each PowerCenter Integration Service process must be a subset of the code page of the associated repository. You must select the associated repository before you can select the code page for a PowerCenter Integration Service process. The PowerCenter Repository Service must be enabled to set up a code page for a PowerCenter Integration Service process.
If you configure a PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a node that is unavailable, you must start the node and configure $PMRootDir for the service process before you run workflows with the PowerCenter Integration Service.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. On the Domain Navigator Actions menu, click New > PowerCenter Integration Service.
    The New Integration Service dialog box appears.
  3. Enter values for the following PowerCenter Integration Service options.
    The following table describes the PowerCenter Integration Service options:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the PowerCenter Integration Service. The characters must be compatible with the code page of the associated repository. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters:
    ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description
    Description of the PowerCenter Integration Service. The description cannot exceed 765 characters.
    Location
    Domain and folder where the service is created. Click Browse to choose a different folder. You can also move the PowerCenter Integration Service to a different folder after you create it.
    License
    License to assign to the PowerCenter Integration Service. If you do not select a license now, you can assign a license to the service later. Required if you want to enable the PowerCenter Integration Service.
    The options allowed in your license determine the properties you must set for the PowerCenter Integration Service.
    Node
    Node on which the PowerCenter Integration Service runs. Required if you do not select a license or your license does not include the high availability option.
    Assign
    Indicates whether the PowerCenter Integration Service runs on a grid or nodes.
    Grid
    Name of the grid on which the PowerCenter Integration Service run.
    Available if your license includes the high availability option. Required if you assign the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on a grid.
    Primary Node
    Primary node on which the PowerCenter Integration Service runs.
    Required if you assign the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on nodes.
    Backup Nodes
    Nodes used as backup to the primary node.
    Displays if you configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to run on mutiple nodes and you have the high availability option. Click Select to choose the nodes to use for backup.
    Associated Repository Service
    PowerCenter Repository Service associated with the PowerCenter Integration Service. If you do not select the associated PowerCenter Repository Service now, you can select it later. You must select the PowerCenter Repository Service before you run the PowerCenter Integration Service.
    Repository User Name
    User name to access the repository.
    Repository Password
    Password for the user. Required when you select an associated PowerCenter Repository Service.
    Security Domain
    Security domain for the user. Required when you select an associated PowerCenter Repository Service. To apply changes, restart the PowerCenter Integration Service.
    The Security Domain field appears when the Informatica domain contains an LDAP security domain.
    Data Movement Mode
    Mode that determines how the PowerCenter Integration Service handles character data. Choose ASCII or Unicode. ASCII mode passes 7-bit ASCII or EBCDIC character data. Unicode mode passes 8-bit ASCII and multibyte character data from sources to targets.
    Default is ASCII.
  4. Click Finish.
    You must specify a PowerCenter Repository Service before you can enable the PowerCenter Integration Service.
    You can specify the code page for each PowerCenter Integration Service process node and select the Enable Service option to enable the service. If you do not specify the code page information now, you can specify it later. You cannot enable the PowerCenter Integration Service until you assign the code page for each PowerCenter Integration Service process node.
  5. Click OK.
