Creating the Properties File

Creating the Properties File

Informatica provides a sample properties file that includes the upgrade parameters that are required by the installer. You can customize the sample properties file to specify the options for your upgrade.
The sample upgrade properties file is named SilentInput_upgrade.properties and is located in the root directory of the installation DVD or the installer download location. After you customize the file, save it with the file name SilentInput.properties.
  1. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files.
  2. Find the file named SilentInput_upgrade.properties.
    Back up the file before you modify it.
  3. Use a text editor to open the file and modify the values of the upgrade parameters.
    The following table describes the upgrade parameters that you can modify:
