Promoting a Local Repository to a Global Repository

Promoting a Local Repository to a Global Repository

You can promote an existing repository to a global repository. After you promote a repository to a global repository, you cannot change it to a local or standalone repository. After you promote a repository, you can register local repositories to create a repository domain.
When registering local repositories with a global repository, the global and local repository code pages must be compatible. Before promoting a repository to a global repository, make sure the repository code page is compatible with each local repository you plan to register.
To promote a repository to a global repository, you need to change the operating mode of the PowerCenter Repository Service to exclusive. If users are connected to the repository, have them disconnect before you run the repository in exclusive mode.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. In the Domain Navigator, select the PowerCenter Repository Service for the repository you want to promote.
  3. If the PowerCenter Repository Service is running in normal mode, change the operating mode to exclusive.
  4. If the PowerCenter Repository Service is not enabled, click Enable.
  5. In the repository properties section for the service, click Edit.
  6. Select Global Repository, and click OK.
    The Repository Authentication dialog box appears.
  7. Enter your user name, password, and security domain.
    The Security Domain field appears when the Informatica Domain contains an LDAP security domain.
  8. Click OK.
After you promote a local repository, the value of the GlobalRepository property is true in the general properties for the PowerCenter Repository Service.
