      Configure tablespace
      Select whether to specify a tablespace:
      1 - No
      2 - Yes
      In a single-partition database, if you select No, the installer creates the tables in the default tablespace. In a multi-partition database, you must select Yes.
      Tablespace
      Name of the tablespace in which to create the tables. Specify a tablespace that meets the pageSize requirement of 32768 bytes.
      In a single-partition database, if you select Yes to configure the tablespace, enter the name of the tablespace in which to create the tables.
      In a multi-partition database, specify the name of the tablespace that resides in the catalog partition of the database.
    2. If you select Microsoft SQL Server or PostgreSQL, enter the schema name for the database.
      The following table describes the properties that you must configure for the database:
      Property
      Description
      Schema name
      Name of the schema that will contain domain configuration tables. If this parameter is blank, the installer creates the tables in the default schema.
    3. To enter the JDBC connection information using the JDBC URL information, press
      1
      . To enter the JDBC connection information using a custom JDBC connection string, press
      2
      .
    4. Enter the JDBC connection information.
      • To enter the connection information using the JDBC URL information, specify the JDBC URL properties.
        The following table describes the database connection information:
        Prompt
        Description
        Database host name
        Host name for the database.
        Database port number
        Port number for the database.
        Database service name
        Service or database name:
        • Oracle: Enter the service name.
        • Microsoft SQL Server: Enter the database name.
        • IBM DB2: Enter the service name.
        • Sybase ASE: Enter the database name.
        • PostgreSQL: Enter the database name.
        Configure JDBC Parameters
        Select whether to add additional JDBC parameters to the connection string:
        1 - Yes
        2 - No
        If you select Yes, enter the parameters or press Enter to accept the default. If you select No, the installer creates the JDBC connection string without parameters.
      • To enter the connection information using a custom JDBC connection string, type the connection string.
        Use the following syntax in the JDBC connection string:
        IBM DB2
        jdbc:Informatica:db2://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=
        Oracle
        jdbc:Informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port number>;ServiceName=
        Use the following connection string to connect to the Oracle database through the Oracle Connection Manager:
        jdbc:Informatica:oracle:TNSNamesFile=<fully qualified path to the tnsnames.ora file>;TNSServerName=<TNS name>;
        Microsoft SQL Server
        jdbc:Informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port number>;SelectMethod=cursor;DatabaseName=
        Microsoft Azure SQL Database
        jdbc:Informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port number>;SelectMethod=cursor;DatabaseName=<database name>;SnapshotSerializable=true;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=*.database.windows.net;ValidateServerCertificate=false
        PostgreSQL
        jdbc:Informatica:postgresql://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=
        Sybase
        jdbc:Informatica:sybase://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=
        Verify that the connection string contains all the connection parameters required by your database system.
  5. If you create a secure domain configuration repository, enter the parameters for the secure database.
    If you create the domain configuration repository on a secure database, you must provide the truststore information for the database.
    The following table describes the options available to create a secure domain configuration repository database:
    Property
    Description
    Database truststore file
    Path and file name of the truststore file for the secure database.
    Database truststore password
    Password for the truststore file.
    Custom JDBC Connection String
    JDBC connection string to connect to the secure database, including the host name and port number and the security parameters for the database.
    In addition to the host name and port number for the database server, you must include the following secure database parameters:
    EncryptionMethod
    Required. Indicates whether data is encrypted when transmitted over the network. This parameter must be set to
    SSL.
    ValidateServerCertificate
    Optional. Indicates whether Informatica validates the certificate that the database server sends.
    If this parameter is set to True, Informatica validates the certificate that the database server sends. If you specify the HostNameInCertificate parameter, Informatica also validates the host name in the certificate.
    If this parameter is set to False, Informatica does not validate the certificate that the database server sends. Informatica ignores any truststore information that you specify
    Default is True.
    HostNameInCertificate
    Optional. Host name of the machine that hosts the secure database. If you specify a host name, Informatica validates the host name included in the connection string against the host name in the SSL certificate.
    cryptoProtocolVersion
    Required. Specifies the cryptographic protocol to use to connect to a secure database. You can set the parameter to
    cryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.1
    or
    cryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2
    based on the cryptographic protocol used by the database server.
    You must also provide a JDBC connection string that includes the security parameters for the database. You can use the following syntax for the connection strings:
    • Oracle:
      jdbc:Informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port number>;ServiceName=<service name>;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=<database host name>;ValidateServerCertificate=<true or false>
    • IBM DB2:
      jdbc:Informatica:db2://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=<database name>;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=<database host name>;ValidateServerCertificate=<true or false>
    • Microsoft SQL Server:
      jdbc:Informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port number>;SelectMethod=cursor;DatabaseName=<database name>;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=<database host name>;ValidateServerCertificate=<true or false>
    • PostgreSQL:
      jdbc:Informatica:postgresql://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=<database name>;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=<database host name>;ValidateServerCertificate=<true or false>
    The installer does not validate the connection string. Verify that the connection string contains all the connection parameters and security parameters required by your database.
  6. If the database contains a domain configuration repository for a previous domain, select to overwrite the data or set up another database.
    1. Press 1 for OK to enter the connection information for a new database.
    2. Press 2 for Continue for the installer to overwrite the data in the database with new domain configuration.
