Rules and Guidelines for Starting or Stopping Informatica

Rules and Guidelines for Starting or Stopping Informatica

Consider the following rules and guidelines when starting and stopping Informatica on a node:
  • When you shut down a node, the node is unavailable to the domain. If you shut down a gateway node and do not have another gateway node in the domain, the domain is unavailable.
  • When you start Informatica, verify that the port used by the service on the node is available. For example, if you stop Informatica on a node, verify that the port is not used by any other process on the machine before you restart Informatica. If the port is not available, Informatica will fail to start.
  • If you do not use Informatica Administrator to shut down a node, any process running on the node will be aborted. If you want to wait for all processes to complete before shutting down a node, use Informatica Administrator.
  • If you have two nodes in a domain with one node configured as a primary node for an application service and the other node configured as a backup node, start Informatica on the primary node before you start the backup node. Otherwise, the application service will run on the backup node and not the primary node.
