Installation Process

The installation of the Informatica services and Informatica clients consists of multiple phases.
The installation process consists of the following phases:
  1. Before you install the Informatica services, perform the following tasks to plan and prepare for the services installation:
    1. Plan the Informatica domain. Consider the number of nodes in the domain, the application services that will run on each node, the system requirements, and the type of user authentication that the domain will use.
    2. Prepare the databases for the domain. Verify the database requirements and set up the databases.
    3. Set up the machines to meet either the Windows or UNIX requirements to ensure that you can successfully install and run the Informatica services.
  2. Install the Informatica services.
    Use the server installer to install the Informatica services on one or more Windows or UNIX machines. The first time you run the installer, you must create the domain. During the installation on the additional machines, you create worker nodes that you join to the domain.
  3. After you install the Informatica services, perform the following tasks to complete the services installation:
    1. Complete the domain configuration. Verify code page compatibility, complete tasks required by the type of user authentication used by the domain, and configure environment variables. Optionally, configure secure communication for the domain.
    2. Prepare to create the application services. Verify operating system requirements for application services and create the users and connections required by the application services.
    3. Create the application services in the required order.
  4. Install the Informatica clients.
    Perform the following tasks to install the clients:
    1. Before you install the clients, verify the installation and third-party software requirements for the clients.
    2. Use the client installer to install the clients on Windows machines.
    3. After you install the clients, optionally install additional languages and configure the required environment variables for the clients.
