Review the Environment Variables

Review the Environment Variables

Configure the environment variables to work with the Informatica installation.
The following table describes the environment variables to review on UNIX:
Variable
Description
IATEMPDIR
Location of the temporary files created during installation. Informatica requires 1 GB disk space for temporary files.
Configure the environment variable if you do not want to create temporary files in the /tmp directory.
INFA_JRE_HOME
Location of the folder containing the supported Java Runtime Environment (JRE).If you are installing Informatica on AIX, set the INFA_JRE_HOME environment variable.
In the configuration file for your shell, for example the .bashrc file, set the INFA_JRE_HOME environment variable to the directory that contains the JRE. Verify that the login shell can access the INFA_JRE_HOME environment variable.
JRE_HOME
If you install the Informatica services on a UNIX machine, clear the JRE_HOME environment variable before you start the installation.
LANG and LC_ALL
Change the locale to set the appropriate character encoding for the terminal session. For example, set the encoding to
Latin1
or
ISO-8859-1
for French,
EUC-JP
or
Shift JIS
for Japanese, or
UTF-8
for Chinese or Korean. The character encoding determines the types of characters that appear in the UNIX terminal.
DISPLAY
Unset the DISPLAY environment before you run the installer. Installation might fail if the DISPLAY environment variable has some value.
