When you install the Informatica services, you add the installation machine to the domain as a node. You can add multiple nodes to a domain.
The following table describes the node information that you need to enter when you join a domain.
Node Information
Description
Node host name
Fully qualified host name of the machine on which to create nodes. If the machine has a single network name, use the default host name. The node host name cannot contain the underscore (_) character.
If the machine has multiple network names, you can modify the default host name to use an alternate network name. If the machine has a single network name, use the default host name.
Do not use localhost. The host name must explicitly identify the machine.
