Verify Application Service Prerequisites

Verify Application Service Prerequisites

Before you create an application service, verify that you have performed the following prerequisite tasks that are described earlier in this guide:
Set up the database.
Set up the following databases:
  • Model repository for the Model Repository Service.
  • Data object cache database to cache logical data objects and virtual tables.
  • Profiling warehouse to perform data profiling and discovery.
  • Workflow database to store run-time metadata for workflows.
  • Reference data warehouse to store reference table data for the Content Management Service.
  • PowerCenter repository for the PowerCenter Repository Service.
  • Metadata Manager repository for the Metadata Manager Service.
Install database client software on the service machines.
Configure native connectivity for the following:
  • Install and configure the native database client software associated with the relational data sources and the repository databases on the machine that runs the Data Integration Service.
  • Install database client software and configure connectivity on the machines where the PowerCenter Repository Service and the PowerCenter Repository Service processes run.
  • Install database client software associated with the relational data sources and the repository databases on the machines where the PowerCenter Integration Service runs.
Configure database client environment variables on UNIX.
You must configure the database client environment variables on the machines that run the following services:
  • Data Integration Service
  • PowerCenter Repository Service
  • PowerCenter Integration Service
Create a keytab file for the service.
If the domain uses Kerberos authentication and you set the service principal level at the process level, create a unique keytab file for the following services:
  • Model Repository Service
  • Data Integration Service
  • Analyst Service
  • Content Management Service
  • Search Service
  • PowerCenter Repository Service
  • PowerCenter Integration Service
  • Metadata Manager Service
The name of the service that you create must match the service name in the keytab file name.
Set up keystore files.
To set up a secure connection to the application client, create a keystore file for the following services:
  • Analyst Service
  • Metadata Manager Service
  • Web Services Hub Service
Configure POSIX Asynchronous I/O.
If you installed Informatica on IBM AIX, configure POSIX Asynchronous I/O on any node where you want to run a PowerCenter Integration Service.
Determine the code page to use for the repository.
Verify code page compatibility for the following:
  • Domain configuration database is compatible with the code pages of the application services that you create in the domain.
  • PowerCenter repository code page is compatible with the code pages for the PowerCenter Client and all application services in the Informatica domain.
  • Code page for the PowerCenter Integration Service is compatible with the code page of the associated PowerCenter repository.
  • Metadata Manager repository code page, the code page on the machine where the associated PowerCenter Integration Service runs, and the code page for any database management and PowerCenter resources that you want to load into the Metadata Manager warehouse are the same.
Configure locale environment variables on UNIX.
Verify that the locale settings on machines that access the Administrator tool and the Informatica client tools is compatible with the code page of the PowerCenter repository.
Configure library path environment variables on UNIX.
Configure the library path environment variables on the machines that run the following services:
  • Data Integration Service
  • PowerCenter Repository Service
  • PowerCenter Integration Service
Verify the setup for 64-bit Windows.
Verify the setup for 64-bit Windows for the following services:
  • Data Integration Service
  • PowerCenter Repository Service
  • PowerCenter Integration Service
Create directories for the Analyst Service.
On the node that runs the Analyst Service, create the following directories:
  • Flat file cache directory where the Analyst tool stores uploaded flat files. Ensure that the Data Integration Service can also access this directory.
  • Temporary export file directory to store the temporary business glossary files that the business glossary export process creates.
Create connections to the databases that the application services access though native connectivity.
In the Administrator tool, create connections to the following databases:
  • Data object cache database
  • Profiling warehouse database
  • Reference data warehouse
  • Workflow database
