Creating an Informatica Cluster Service

Creating an Informatica Cluster Service

You can choose to generate the Informatica Cluster Service when you install Enterprise Data Catalog or create the application service manually using Informatica Administrator.
If you plan to deploy Enterprise Data Catalog on multiple nodes, ensure that you configure Informatica Cluster Service and Catalog Service on separate nodes.
  1. In the Administrator tool, select a domain, and click the
    Services and Nodes
    tab.
  2. On the Actions menu, click
    New
    Informatica Cluster Service
    .
    The
    New Informatica Cluster Service: Step 1 of 4
    dialog box appears.
  3. Configure the general properties in the dialog box.
    The following table describes the properties:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the service. The name is not case-sensitive and must be unique within the domain. The name cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. The name cannot contain character spaces. The characters in the name must be compatible with the code page of the Model repository that you associate with the Catalog Service.
    The name cannot contain the following special characters:
    ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description
    Description of the service. The description cannot exceed 765 characters.

    License
    License to assign to the Informatica Cluster Service. Select the license that you installed with Enterprise Data Catalog.
    Node
    Node in the Informatica domain on which the Informatica Cluster Service runs. If you change the node, you must recycle the Informatica Cluster Service.
    Backup Nodes
    If your license includes high availability, nodes on which the service can run if the primary node is unavailable.
  4. Click

    After you update the Informatica Cluster Service security options in Informatica Administrator, restart the Informatica Cluster Service.
Before you enable the Informatica Cluster Service, verify the following prerequisites based on the security options you configured for the cluster:
  • Kerberos-enabled cluster:
    • You must configure the Key Distribution Center (KDC) hostname and IP address on all cluster nodes and domain machines in the
      /etc/hosts
    • Make sure that the krb5.conf file is located in all cluster nodes and domain machines under the
      /etc
      directory.
  • SSL-enabled cluster:
    • For an SSL-enabled cluster, ensure that the domain truststore file is configured and copied to a common location accessible to all the cluster nodes.
    • If the Solr keystore and password are different from the keystore and password of Informatica Cluster Service, you must export the public certificate of Solr to all the cluster nodes and import the certificate to the YARN truststore and domain truststore.
