Troubleshooting a Repository Refresh

Troubleshooting a Repository Refresh

An error might occur when you refresh a repository using Data Validation Client or the DVOCmd RefreshRepository command.
Review the following troubleshooting tip for refreshing a repository:
An error occurs when you refresh a large number of connections from a PowerCenter repository.
If you try to refresh a large number of connections, the following error appears:
The pipe is being closed.
To resolve the error, reduce the number of PowerCenter connections to be imported into Data Validation Option.
To reduce the number of connections, complete the following steps:
  1. Close the Data Validation Client or any open command lines.
  2. Create a text file that specifies the connections to exclude from the refresh.
    You can run the
    pmrep
    listConnections command to list all connections in a PowerCenter repository.
  3. Name the text file as ExcludeConns.txt.
    Data Validation Option searches for this file name before importing the connections.
  4. Add the file to the root directory where Data Validation Option is installed. For example, add the ExcludeConns.txt file to the following directory:
    C:\ProgramFiles\Informatica10.4.0\DVO
  5. Open the Data Validation Client or the command line.
  6. Refresh the connections again.
