Create a System User Account

Create a system user account to perform the installation and to run the Informatica service. Verify that the user account that you use to install the Informatica services has write permission on the installation directory.
You can install Informatica with the user account logged in to the machine and run it under another user account. You can create a local account or a domain account to install Informatica or run the Informatica Windows service.

The user accounts require the following permissions to run the installer or to run the Informatica Windows service:
  • Logged in user account.
    The user account must be a member of the Administrators group and have the
    Log on as a service
    permission. Log in with this user account before you install Informatica.

You do not have to log in with this user account before you install Informatica. During installation, you can specify the user account to run the Informatica Windows service.
