Upgrading from a Split Domain

Upgrading from a Split Domain

If you are upgrading from a split domain, you must configure an environment variable to skip validation check before you can perform the upgrade.

Upgrading from Version 10.1.1 HotFix 2 or 10.2 HotFix 2

When you upgrade, disable the plugin validation by setting the SKIP_BINARIESVALIDATION_CHECK environment variable to true.
The Model Repository Service fails to start if the domain contains Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog plugins. If you split a domain with Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog, the plugins remain in the domain that you split. When you try to upgrade to 10.4.0, the Model Repository Service fails with the following version mismatch error:
Stopping the service... - Informatica does not support upgrade from <version> to 10.4.0. For more information about the supported upgrade paths, see the Product Availability Matrix on Informatica Network. Select a choice * 1->OK (Default: 1):
The Model Repository Service fails with plug-in validation errors indicating a version mismatch in the domain.

Upgrading from 10.1.1, 10.2, 10.2.1, or 10.2.2

The Model Repository Service fails to start if the 10.1.1, 10.2, 10.2.1, or 10.2.2 domain including hotfixes or service packs contains Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog. After the domain split, the Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog plugins remain in the domain that you split. When you upgrade to 10.4.0 domain, the Model Repository Service fails and the only the following Enterprise Data Catalog or Enterprise Data Preparation upgrade prompts appear in the installer:
Select one of the following options to upgrade to version 10.4: *1->Upgrade Informatica domain services and Enterprise Data Catalog binaries. 2->Upgrade Informatica domain services and the binaries for Enterprise Data Catalog and Enterprise Data Preparation. When you choose this option, the installer installs Enterprise Data Preparation binaries if they do not exist. To complete the service upgrades, you need to run the upgrade wizard through the Administrator tool. (Default:1):
To resolve this issue, you must set the following environment variable to true: SKIP_BINARIESVALIDATION_CHECK

Restoring the Domain or Enabling the Model Repository Service

The domain and the Model Repository Service fail if any of the following condition is true:

    You back up the domain that contains Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog. When you restore it to a target domain that does not contain Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog, the domain restore fails.

    You enable the Model Repository Service in a domain that contains Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog plugins. When you enable the Model Repository Service using the same database but in a target domain that does not contain Enterprise Data Preparation or Enterprise Data Catalog, the Model Repository Service fails.

To perform a successful domain restore or to enable the Model Repository Service, complete the following steps:
  1. Shut down the domain.
