Performing Migration or Maintenance

Performing Migration or Maintenance

You might want to run a PowerCenter Integration Service in safe mode for the following reasons:
  • Test a development environment. Run the PowerCenter Integration Service in safe mode to test a development environment before migrating to production. You can run workflows that contain session and command tasks to test the environment. Run the PowerCenter Integration Service in safe mode to limit access to the PowerCenter Integration Service when you run the test sessions and command tasks.
  • Manage workflow schedules. During migration, you can unschedule workflows that only run in a development environment. You can enable the PowerCenter Integration Service in safe mode, unschedule the workflow, and then enable the PowerCenter Integration Service in normal mode. After you enable the service in normal mode, the workflows that you unscheduled do not run.
  • Troubleshoot the PowerCenter Integration Service. Configure the PowerCenter Integration Service to fail over in safe mode and troubleshoot errors when you migrate or test a production environment configured for high availability. After the PowerCenter Integration Service fails over in safe mode, you can correct the error that caused the PowerCenter Integration Service to fail over.
  • Perform maintenance on the PowerCenter Integration Service. When you perform maintenance on a PowerCenter Integration Service, you can limit the users who can run workflows. You can enable the PowerCenter Integration Service in safe mode, change PowerCenter Integration Service properties, and verify the PowerCenter Integration Service functionality before allowing other users to run workflows. For example, you can use safe mode to test changes to the paths for PowerCenter Integration Service files for PowerCenter Integration Service processes.
