You can upgrade directly to 10.2.0 HotFix 2 from any of the following versions:

    9.6.1 or any 9.6.1 hotfix



    10.1.1 or any 10.1.1 hotfix

If version 10.2 or 10.2 HF1 is installed, you can apply the hotfix.
If the product version that is currently installed cannot be upgraded to Informatica 10.2.0 HotFix 2, you must first upgrade to a supported version. To determine the Informatica product version that is currently installed, click
About Informatica Administrator
in the Informatica Administrator header area.
Informatica dropped support for versions 9.0.1, 9.1 and 9.5.x. For more information about Support EOL statements, contact Informatica Global Customer Support or see:
Version 10.2 HotFix 2 does not support Intelligent Data Lake or Enterprise Information Catalog. If you are upgrading from a split domain, you must configure an environment variable to skip validation check before you can perform the upgrade or apply the hotfix. By default, the installer checks for product binaries. To apply version 10.2 HotFix 2, you must disable the binary checks for Intelligent Data Lake and Enterprise Information Catalog with the following environment variable: SKIP_BINARIESVALIDATION_CHECK = true.
Refer to the following article for more information about the upgrade paths:
Version 10.2 HotFix 2 was released after version 10.2.2. Informatica does not support the upgrade from 10.2.2 to 10.2 HotFix 2, nor does it support the upgrade from 10.2 HotFix 2 to 10.2.2. The upgrade process might succeed, but you might experience results that are not supported.
