Apply or Roll Back the HotFix in Silent Mode

Apply or Roll Back the HotFix in Silent Mode

To apply the hotfix in silent mode, create the
SilentInput.properties
file and then run the installer with the file.
Informatica provides a sample properties file, called
SilentInput_hotFix.properties
, that includes the parameters that are required by the installer. The following example shows the contents of the file:
########################################################## # Informatica Installer Build details # Copyright (c) 1993-2017 Informatica LLC # This software contains confidential and proprietary # information of Informatica LLC # All Rights Reserved. ########################################################## # Use the following guidelines when editing this file: # * Use this file to install without user interaction. # * After you create the properties file, save the file with the name SilentInput.properties. # * Any error condition that leads to failure, such as an invalid # installation directory, generates a log file in the user home directory. # For example: c:\silentErrorLog<time_stamp>.log ########################################################## # Set ENABLE_USAGE_COLLECTION to 1 to accept the product usage toolkit end user license agreement. # You must set the value as 1 to install the Informatica platform. # The product usage toolkit end user license agreement is available at: http://www.informatica.com/us/eula/en-support-eula.aspx. # As further described in the EULA, your use of the Informatica platform will enable the product usage toolkit # to collect certain product usage and failure information. You may disable this feature at any time. # For more information on how to disable this feature refer the Informatica Administrator Guide. ENABLE_USAGE_COLLECTION=0 ## *INSTALL_TYPE - Set this value to '0' to apply the hotfix. Set this value to '1' to roll back the hotfix. INSTALL_TYPE=0 # * The USER_INSTALL_DIR variable must point to a valid directory with write # permissions enabled. USER_INSTALL_DIR=c:\Informatica\10.1.1
The properties file is the same for both the Informatica services hotfix and Informatica client hotfix.
  1. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files.
  2. Locate the
    SilentInput_HotFix.properties
    file.
  3. Back up the file before you modify it.
  4. Use a text editor to open the file and modify the values. The following table describes the installation properties that you can modify:
    Property Name
    Description
    INSTALL_TYPE
    Indicates whether to apply the hotfix or roll back the hotfix. If the value is 0, the installer applies the hotfix to the current Informatica installation. If the value is 1, the installer rolls back the current hotfix.
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    Directory for the Informatica installation on which to apply or roll back the hotfix.
    To apply the hotfix to the Informatica services, enter the absolute path for the directory in which the current version of the Informatica services is installed.
    To apply the hotfix to the Informatica clients, enter the absolute path for the directory in which the current version of the Informatica clients is installed.
    To roll back the hotfix, enter the absolute path for the directory in which the current version of the Informatica services or clients is installed.
    ENABLE_USAGE_COLLECTION
    Enables Informatica DiscoveryIQ, 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 about how to disable sending usage statistics, see
    Informatica Administrator Guide
    .
    You must set the value to 1 to apply the hotfix.
  5. Save the properties file with the name SilentInput.properties.
  6. Open a command window.
  7. Go to root of the server or client installer directory.
  8. Verify that the directory contains the
    SilentInput.properties
    file that you edited and saved.
  9. Begin the installation from Windows or UNIX.
    • To apply or roll back the hotfix on Windows, double-click the
      silentInstallHotFix.bat
      .
    • To apply or roll back the hotfix on UNIX, double-click the
      silentInstallHotFix.sh
      .
    If you apply a hotfix, the installer copies the Informatica files to the installation directory. If you roll back a hotfix, the installer removes the last hotfix and restores the previous version of Informatica.
  10. Verify that the hotfix or rollback completed successfully.
  11. Complete the post-installation tasks.
When you uninstall the Informatica services after you apply the hotfix, the uninstallation completes successfully but the installer displays the following error message:
The uninstallation could not complete due to an error.
You can ignore the error message.
If you roll back the services and clients after you upgrade Big Data Management to 10.1.1 HotFix 1 on the Hadoop environment, the environments will be incompatible and you cannot run mappings in the Hadoop environment. You will need to uninstall Big Data Management from the Hadoop environment and install a compatible version.
