Installation Process

The installation of the Informatica domain services and Informatica clients consists of multiple phases.
The installation process varies based on the products that you install. Consider the following high-level tasks of the installation process:
Perform pre-installation tasks.
  1. Plan the Informatica installation. Determine the products that you want to run in your environment. If you are creating a domain, consider the number of nodes in the domain, the application services that will run on each node, the system requirements, and the type of user authentication that the domain will use.
  2. Prepare the databases required for repositories, warehouses, and catalogs. Verify the database requirements and set up the databases.
  3. Set up the machines to meet system requirements to ensure that you can successfully install and run the Informatica services.
  4. Determine security requirements for the domain, services, and databases.
Run the installer.
When you run the installer, you can choose from different options based on your requirements.
Complete the configuration.
  1. Verify code page compatibility.
  2. Configure environment variables.
  3. Complete tasks required by the type of user authentication used by the domain.
  4. Optionally, configure secure communication for the domain.
  5. Create and configure application services.
  6. Configure connections required by the application services.
  7. Create the users and connections required by the application services.
