Upgrading from Version 10.0

Upgrading in Console Mode

Upgrading in Console Mode

When you upgrade in console mode, you can change the node configuration to upgrade the domain to a different machine or to a different domain configuration repository database. You can upgrade the domain in console mode on UNIX.
To upgrade the domain on the same machine and on the same domain configuration repository database, see Upgrading in Console Mode.
When you run the installer in console mode, the words Quit and Back are reserved words. Do not use them as input text.
  1. On a shell command line, run the install.sh file from the root directory.
    The installer displays the message to verify that the locale environment variables are set.
  2. If the environment variables are not set, press n to exit the installer and set them as required.
    If the environment variables are set, press y to continue.
  3. Press 2 to upgrade Informatica.
    Informatica provides utilities to facilitate the Informatica services installation process. You can run the following utility before you upgrade Informatica services:
    Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool.
    Verifies whether the machine on which you are installing Informatica services meets the system requirements for installation. For more information about the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check tool, see Run the Pre-Installation (i10Pi) System Check Tool.
    Informatica Upgrade Advisor.
    Validates the services and checks for obsolete services in the domain before you perform an upgrade. Fore more information about the Informatica Upgrade Advisor, see Run the Informatica Upgrade Advisor.
    The installer displays a warning to shut down the Informatica domain that you want to upgrade before you continue the upgrade.
  4. Press 3 to run the Informatica service installation.
  5. Press 2 to upgrade to Informatica 10.1.1.
  6. Read the terms and conditions of Informatica product usage toolkit and press 2 to continue the upgrade.
    Informatica DiscoveryIQ is a product usage tool that sends routine reports on data usage and system statistics to Informatica. Informatica DiscoveryIQ uploads data to Informatica 15 minutes after you install and configure Informatica domain. Thereafter, the domain sends the data every 30 days. You can choose to not send any usage statistics to Informatica. For more information on how to disable sending usage statistics, see Informatica Administrator Guide.
  7. Press 1 to upgrade Informatica services.
    If you are upgrading on AIX, ignore this step.
  8. The Upgrade Prerequisites page displays the upgrade system requirements.
    Verify the requirements before you continue the upgrade.
  9. At the prompt, enter the directory of the Informatica version you want to upgrade and the directory in which you want to install Informatica 10.1.1.
    The following table describes the directories you must specify:
    Directory
    Description
    Directory of the Informatica product to upgrade
    Directory that contains the version of Informatica services that you want to upgrade.
    Directory for Informatica 10.1.1
    Directory in which to install Informatica 10.1.1.
    Enter the absolute path for the installation directory. The directory cannot be the same as the directory that contains the previous version of Informatica services.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.
    On Windows, the installation directory must be on the current machine.
  10. Enter 2 to allow changes to the node host name and port number.
    Use this option to change the configuration of the Informatica installation that you upgrade. If you are upgrading to a different machine, change the node configuration to match the configuration of the new machine. If you are upgrading to a different domain configuration repository database, change the node configuration to match the configuration of the new database.
  11. Enter the directory for the encryption key for the informatica domain.
    Informatica uses an encryption key to secure sensitive data, such as passwords, that are stored in the Informatica domain. When you upgrade, you must enter the directory in which to store the encryption key on the node that you are upgrading.
    All nodes in an Informatica domain use the same keyword and encryption key. You must keep the name of the domain, the keyword for the encryption key, and the encryption key file in a secure location. The encryption key is required when you change the encryption key of the domain or move a repository to another domain.
    Property Description
    Encryption key directory Directory in which to store the encryption key for the domain. By default, the encryption key is created in the following directory: <Informatica installation directory>/isp/config/keys.
  12. Enter the user name and password for the informatica domain.
  13. Review the upgrade information and press Enter to continue.
    The installer copies the server files to the Informatica 10.1.1 installation directory.
    The installer displays a warning to shut down the Informatica domain that you want to upgrade before you continue the upgrade.
  14. Press Enter.
