Before you create a repository, you need a database to store repository tables. Use the database client to create the database. After you create a database, you can use the Administrator tool to create a Model Repository Service.
Each Model repository must meet the following requirements:
Each Model repository must have its own schema. Two Model repositories or the Model repository and the domain configuration database cannot share the same schema.
Each Model repository must have a unique database name.
In addition, each Model repository must meet database-specific requirements.
The Model Repository Service uses the DataDirect drivers included with the Informatica installation. Informatica does not support the use of any other database driver.
