You can install the Informatica services on a Windows or UNIX machine. On Windows, you can run the installer in graphical or silent mode. On UNIX, you can run the installer in console or silent mode.
Complete the pre-installation tasks to prepare for the installation. You can install the Informatica services on multiple machines. The installation process creates a service named Informatica that runs as a service on Windows and as a daemon on UNIX. When you start the Informatica service, it starts the Service Manager, which manages all domain operations.
Optionally, you can create a Model Repository Service and a Data Integration Service during the installation process.
After installation, use Informatica Administrator to log in to the domain and create and configure the application services.
