Creating the Properties File

Creating the Properties File

Informatica provides two versions of the properties file. Use either file to specify options for your installation.
Silent input upgrade new config properties file
Use the silent input upgrade new configuration properties file to upgrade Informatica domain services with changes to the node configuration and without user interaction.
The silent input upgrade new configuration properties file contains the configuration properties required to upgrade the Informatica domain services in silent mode. Use the file if you want to consider the appropriate value to set for each property in the file.
Default silent input upgrade properties file
Use the silent input upgrade properties file to upgrade Informatica domain services without user interaction.
The default silent input properties file contains default values for many configuration properties. Use the file if you plan to upgrade the Informatica domain services using the default property values, and do not want to read through all of the properties in the file.
Informatica provides a sample properties file that includes the upgrade parameters that are required by the installer. You can customize the sample properties file to specify the options for your upgrade.
The sample upgrade properties file is named SilentInput_upgrade.properties and is located in the installer download location. After you customize the file, save it with the file name SilentInput.properties.
  1. Go to the root of the directory that contains the installation files.
  2. Find the file named SilentInput_upgrade.properties.
    Back up the file before you modify it.
  3. Use a text editor to open the file and modify the values of the upgrade parameters.
    The following table describes the upgrade parameters that you can modify:
    Property Name
    Description
    INSTALL_TYPE
    Indicates whether to install or upgrade Informatica.
    If the value is 0, the installer performs a fresh installation of Informatica. If the value is 1, the installer upgrades a previous version of Informatica.
    USER_INSTALL_DIR
    Directory in which to install the new version of Informatica services. The directory cannot be the same as the directory that contains the previous version of Informatica services.
    UPG_BACKUP_DIR
    Directory that contains the previous version of Informatica services that you want to upgrade.
    KEY_DEST_LOCATION
    Directory in which to store the encryption key for the node created during the installation.
    DOMAIN_USER
    User name for the Informatica domain.
    DOMAIN_PSSWD

    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 on how to disable sending usage statistics, see the
    Informatica Administrator Guide
    .
    You must set the value to 1 to upgrade.
