Prepare for Cluster Import

Prepare for Cluster Import

When you run the installer, you can choose to configure the cluster. The cluster configuration enables the Data Integration Service to push mapping logic to the cluster. To integrate the Informatica domain with the non-native cluster, you must import a cluster configuration. You can import the cluster information directly from the cluster or from an archive file.
You can import cluster information from an archive file of any supported cluster into the domain. Your administrator might prefer to provide you with the archive file to protect sensitive connection information to the cluster. The archive file can be in a .zip or .tar format. Ensure that you store the archive file locally.

Prepare the Archive File for Hadoop Environment

The Hadoop cluster configuration archive file can have the following contents based on the distribution:
  • core-site.xml
  • hbase-site.xml. hbase-site.xml is required only if you access HBase sources and targets.
  • hdfs-site.xml
  • hive-site.xml
  • mapred-site.xml or tez-site.xml. Include the mapred-site.xml file or the tez-site.xml file based on the Hive execution type used on the Hadoop cluster.
  • yarn-site.xml
To import the cluster configuration from Amazon EMR or MapR, you must import from an archive file.

Prepare the Archive File for the Databricks Environment

To create the .xml file for import, you must get the required information from the Databricks administrator. You can provide any name for the file and store it locally.
The following table describes the cluster properties required to configure in the import file for the Databricks environment:
Property Name
Description
cluster_name
Name of the Databricks cluster.
cluster_ID
The cluster ID of the Databricks cluster.
base URL
URL to access the Databricks cluster.
accesstoken
Token ID created within Databricks required for authentication.
Optionally, you can include other properties specific to the Databricks environment. When you complete the .xml file, compress it into a .zip or .tar file for import.
