Upgrading in Graphical Mode

Upgrading in Graphical Mode

You can upgrade in graphical mode to upgrade the domain on the same machine and on the same domain configuration repository database. You can upgrade the domain in graphical mode on Windows.
To upgrade the domain to a different machine or to a different domain configuration repository database and change the node configuration, see Upgrade the Domain with Changes to Node Configuration.
On Windows, if you encounter problems when you run the install.bat file from the root directory, run the following file:
<Informatica installation directory>/server/install.exe
  1. Log in to the machine with the same user account that you used to install the previous version.
  2. Stop all processes that access the directory and subdirectories of the Informatica product to upgrade, including command prompts and tail logs.
  3. Go to the root of the directory for the installation files and run install.bat as administrator.
    To run the file as administrator, right-click the install.bat file and select Run as administrator.
    If you do not run the installer as administrator, the Windows system administrator might encounter issues when accessing files in the Informatica installation directory.
    The Informatica 10.1.1 page appears.
  4. Select Upgrade to Informatica 10.1.1.
    Informatica provides utilities to facilitate the Informatica services installation process. You must run the following utility before you install 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.
  5. Click Start.
  6. Read the terms and conditions of Informatica product usage toolkit and select I agree to the terms and conditions.
    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 the Informatica Administrator Guide.
  7. The Upgrade Prerequisites page appears.
    Verify the requirements before you continue the upgrade.
  8. Click Next.
    The Upgrade Directory page appears.
  9. 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 that 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. Verify that the Allow changes to the node host name and port numbers option is not selected.
  11. Click Next.
    The Domain Security - Encryption Key page appears.
  12. 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.
  13. Enter the user name and password for the informatica domain.
  14. Click Next.
    The Pre-Installation Summary page appears.
  15. Review the upgrade information, and click Install to continue.

  16. Click OK.
    The Domain Configuration Repository Upgrade page appears.
    If you are upgrading a gateway node, the upgrade wizard displays the database and user account information for the domain configuration repository to be upgraded.

    The upgrade wizard displays the database connection string for the domain configuration repository based on how the connection string of the previous version was created at installation:
    • If the previous version used a JDBC URL at installation, the upgrade wizard displays the JDBC connection properties, including the database address and service name.
      Optionally, you can specify additional JDBC parameters to include in the JDBC URL. To provide additional JDBC parameters, select JDBC parameters and enter a valid JDBC parameter string.
    • If the previous version used a custom JDBC connection string at installation, the upgrade wizard displays the custom connection string.
      You cannot specify additional JDBC parameters.
  17. Click Test Connection to verify that you can connect to the database, and then click OK to continue.
  18. Click Next.
    The Windows Service Configuration page appears.
