The domains.infa file contains the gateway connectivity information for the domain. When the domain uses Kerberos authentication, create the domains.infa file so that the command line programs can get the gateway connectivity information for the domain.

You enter domain connectivity information through the --domainName option or the --gateway option. To use the --domainName option, the domains.infa file must contain the domain gateway connectivity information. If the domains.infa file does not exist or the information in the file is out of date, you must use the --gateway option when you run any command that connects to the domain.
When you install Informatica services, the domains.infa file is available in the INFA_HOME directory. For any other installation, create the file and verify that it is available on the machine from which you want to run the commands.
