Deleting PowerCenter Repository Content

Deleting PowerCenter Repository Content

Delete repository content when you want to delete all metadata and repository database tables from the repository. When you delete repository content, you also delete all privileges and roles assigned to users for the PowerCenter Repository Service.
You might delete the repository content if the metadata is obsolete. Deleting repository content is an irreversible action. If the repository contains information that you might need later, back up the repository before you delete it.
To delete a global repository, you must unregister all local repositories. Also, you must run the PowerCenter Repository Service in exclusive mode to delete repository content.
You can also use the
pmrep
Delete command to delete repository content.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. In the Domain Navigator, select the PowerCenter Repository Service from which you want to delete the content.
  3. Change the operating mode of the PowerCenter Repository Service to exclusive.
  4. On the
    Manage
    tab
    Actions
    menu, click Repository Content > Delete.
  5. Enter your user name, password, and security domain.
    The Security Domain field appears when the Informatica domain contains an LDAP security domain.
  6. If the repository is a global repository, choose to unregister local repositories when you delete the content.
    The delete operation does not proceed if it cannot unregister the local repositories. For example, if a Repository Service for one of the local repositories is running in exclusive mode, you may need to unregister that repository before you delete the global repository.
  7. Click OK.
    The activity log displays the results of the delete operation.
