Run the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool

Run the Pre-installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool to verify whether the machine meets the system requirements for installation or upgrade.
  1. Select Install Informatica 10.1.1.
  2. Select Run the Pre-Installation (i10pi) System Check Tool to verify whether the machine meets the system requirements for the installation or upgrade.
  3. Click Start.
    The Informatica Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool Welcome page appears.
  4. Click Next.
    The System Information page appears.
  5. Enter the absolute path for the installation directory.
    The directory names in the path must not contain spaces or the following special characters: @ | * $ # ! % ( ) { } [ ] , ; '
    Informatica recommends using alphanumeric characters in the installation directory path. If you use a special character such as á or €, unexpected results might occur at run time.
  6. Enter the starting port number for the node that you will create or upgrade on the machine. The default port number for the node is 6005.
  7. Click Next.
    The Database and JDBC Connection Information page appears.
  8. Enter the information for the domain configuration repository database.
    The following table describes the database information for the domain configuration repository:
    Prompt Description
    Database type Database for the domain configuration repository. Select Oracle, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, or Sybase ASE.
    Database user ID User ID for the database user account for the domain configuration repository.
    Database user password Password for the database user account.
    The domain configuration repository must be accessible to all gateway nodes in the domain.
  9. Enter the JDBC connection information.
    • To enter the connection information using the JDBC URL information, select Specify the JDBC connection properties and specify the JDBC URL properties.
      The following table describes the JDBC URL properties:
      Property Description
      Database host name Host name for the database server.
      Database port number Port number for the database server.
      Database service name Service name for Oracle and IBM DB2 databases or database name for Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase ASE.
      To enter the connection information using a custom JDBC connection string, select Custom JDBC connection string and type the connection string.
      Use the following syntax in the JDBC connection string:
      IBM DB2
      jdbc:Informatica:db2://host_name:port_no;DatabaseName=
      Oracle
      jdbc:Informatica:oracle://host_name:port_no;ServiceName=
      Microsoft SQL Server
      jdbc:Informatica:sqlserver://host_name:port_no;SelectMethod=cursor;DatabaseName=
      Sybase
      jdbc:Informatica:sybase://host_name:port_no;DatabaseName=
      Verify that the connection string contains all the connection parameters required by your database system.
  10. Click Test Connection to verify that you can connect to the database, and then click OK to continue.
  11. Click Next to start the system check.
    The tool checks the settings of the hard drive, the availability of the ports, and the configuration of the database. After the system check is complete, the System Check Summary page appears, displaying the results of the system check.
  12. Analyze the results of the system check.
    Each requirement is listed, along with one of the following check statuses:
    • [Pass] - The requirement meets the criteria for the Informatica installation or upgrade.
    • [Fail] - The requirement does not meet the criteria for the Informatica installation or upgrade. Resolve the issue before you proceed with the installation or upgrade.
    • [Information] - Verify the information and perform any additional tasks as outlined in the details.
    The results of the system check are saved to the following file: .../Server/i10Pi/i10Pi/en/i10Pi_summary.txt
  13. Click Done to close the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool.
If the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool finishes with failed requirements, resolve the failed requirements and run the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool again.
If the Informatica Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool check finishes with failed requirements, you can still perform the Informatica installation or upgrade. However, Informatica highly recommends that you resolve the failed requirements before you proceed.
