Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. If you omit this option, infacmd uses the timeout value specified in the INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT environment variable. If no value is specified in the environment variable, the default of 180 seconds is used.
Required. Name of the connection to update.
Required. Database user name.
Required. Password for the database user name.
If you are updating an ADABAS, DB2I, DB2Z, IMS, SEQ, or VSAM connection, you can enter a valid PowerExchange passphrase instead of a password. Passphrases for access to databases and data sets on z/OS can be from 9 to 128 characters in length. Passphrases for access to DB2 for i5/OS can be up to 31 characters in length. Passphrases can contain the following characters:
Passphrases cannot include single quotation marks (‘), double quotation marks (“), or currency symbols.
If a passphrase contains spaces, you must enclose it with double-quotation marks ("), for example,
"This is an example passphrase". If a passphrase contains special characters, you must enclose it with triple double-quotation characters ("""), for example,
"""This passphrase contains special characters ! % & *.""". If a passphrase contains only alphanumeric characters without spaces, you can enter it without delimiters.
On z/OS, a valid RACF passphrase can be up to 100 characters in length. PowerExchange truncates passphrases longer than 100 characters when passing them to RACF for validation.
To use passphrases, ensure that the PowerExchange Listener runs with a security setting of SECURITY=(1,N) or higher in the DBMOVER member. For more information, see "SECURITY Statement" in the
PowerExchange Reference Manual.
To use passphrases for IMS connections, ensure that the following additional requirements are met:
Enter name-value pairs separated by spaces. To view valid options, run infacmd isp ListConnectionOptions.
