If you have the team-based development option, you can enable version control for a new or existing repository. A versioned repository can store multiple versions of objects. If you enable version control, you can maintain multiple versions of an object, control development of the object, and track changes. You can also use labels and deployment groups to associate groups of objects and copy them from one repository to another. After you enable version control for a repository, you cannot disable it.
When you enable version control for a repository, the repository assigns all versioned objects version number 1, and each object has an active status.
You must run the PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode to enable version control for the repository.
Ensure that all users disconnect from the PowerCenter repository.
In the Administrator tool, click the

In the repository properties section of the Properties view, click Edit.
Select Version Control.
The Repository Authentication dialog box appears.
Enter your user name, password, and security domain.
The Security Domain field appears when the Informatica domain contains an LDAP security domain.
