Plan the application services that will run in the domain. You must also plan for the associated services that connect to the application service and the relational databases that are required to create the application service.
Decide whether to create one domain or a split domain. You might want to configure a split domain so that you can upgrade Metadata Manager without having to upgrade the primary components of your installation bundle at the same time.
Plan for the following application services based on the license key generated for your organization:
Content Management Service
Data Integration Service
Metadata Manager Service
Model Repository Service
PowerCenter Integration Service
PowerCenter Repository Service
Web Services Hub
Verify that your machine meets the minimum system requirements to install the Informatica services.
Verify that you have enough available disk space on the machine to support the installation.
Verify that the port numbers to use for application service processes are available on the machines where you install the Informatica services.
Verify that the database server has adequate disk space for the domain configuration repository and for the other databases required by the application services.
Verify that the nodes in the domain have adequate hardware for the Service Manager and the application services that run on the nodes.
Record information about the domain, nodes, and application services that you plan to create.
