Domain and Node Configuration

Domain and Node Configuration

After you configure the encryption key, you can configure the domain and node.
  1. Enter the information for the domain and the node that you want to create.
    The following table describes the properties that you set for the domain and gateway node.
    Property
    Description
    Domain name
    Name of the Informatica domain to create. The default domain name is Domain_<MachineName>.
    The name must not exceed 128 characters and must be 7-bit ASCII only. The name cannot contain a space or any of the following characters:
    ` % * + ; " ? , < > \ /
    Node name
    Name of the node to create.
    Node host name
    Host name or IP address of the machine on which to create the node.
    If the machine has a single network name, use the default host name. If the a machine has multiple network names, you can modify the default host name to use an alternate network name.
    The node host name cannot contain the underscore (_) character. Do not use localhost. The host name must explicitly identify the machine.
    Node port number
    Port number for the node. The default port number for the node is 6005. If the port number is not available on the machine, the installer displays the next available port number.
    Domain user name
    User name for the domain administrator. You can use this user name to initially log in to Informatica Administrator. Use the following guidelines:
    • The name is not case sensitive and cannot exceed 128 characters.
    • The name cannot include a tab, newline character, or the following special characters: % * + / ? ; < >
    • The name can include an ASCII space character except for the first and last character. Other space characters are not allowed.
  2. Select whether you want to enable password complexity to secure sensitive data in the domain.
    The following table describes the password complexity:
    Prompt
    Description
    Password complexity
    Select whether you want to enable password complexity.
    1 - Yes
    2 - No
    If you select Yes, the password must meet the following requirements:
    It must be at least eight characters long and contain at least one alpha character, one numeric character, and one special character.
    Domain password
    Password for the domain administrator. The password must be more than 2 characters and must not exceed 16 characters.
    Not available if you configure the Informatica domain to run on a network with Kerberos authentication.
    Confirm password
    Enter the password again to confirm.
    Not available if you configure the Informatica domain to run on a network with Kerberos authentication.
  3. Select whether to display the default ports for the domain and node components assigned by the installer.
    The following table describes the advanced port configuration page:
    Prompt
    Description
    Display advanced port configuration page
    Select whether to display the port numbers for the domain and node components assigned by the installer:
    1 - No
    2 - Yes
    If you select Yes, the installer displays the default port numbers assigned to the domain components. You can specify the port numbers to use for the domain and node components. You can also specify a range of port numbers to use for the service process that will run on the node. You can use the default port numbers or specify new port numbers. Verify that the port numbers you enter are not used by other applications.
  4. If you display the port configuration page, enter new port numbers at the prompt or press Enter to use the default port numbers.
    The following table describes the ports that you can set:
    Port
    Description
    Service Manager port
    Port number used by the Service Manager on the node. The Service Manager listens for incoming connection requests on this port. Client applications use this port to communicate with the services in the domain. The Informatica command line programs use this port to communicate to the domain. This is also the port for the SQL data service JDBC/ODBC driver. Default is 6006.
    Service Manager Shutdown port
    Port number that controls server shutdown for the domain Service Manager. The Service Manager listens for shutdown commands on this port. Default is 6007.
    Informatica Administrator port
    Port number used by Informatica Administrator. Default is 6008.
    Informatica Administrator HTTPS port
    No default port. Enter the required port number when you create the service. Setting this port to 0 disables an HTTPS connection to the Administrator tool.
    Informatica Administrator shutdown port
    Port number that controls server shutdown for Informatica Administrator. Informatica Administrator listens for shutdown commands on this port. Default is 6009.
    Minimum port number
    Lowest port number in the range of dynamic port numbers that can be assigned to the application service processes that run on this node. Default is 6014.
    Maximum port number
    Highest port number in the range of dynamic port numbers that can be assigned to the application service processes that run on this node. Default is 6114.
  5. Select if you want to configure the services and connection.
    If you select Yes, you can configure the Model Repository Service, Data Integration Service, Content Management Service, PowerCenter Repository Service, and PowerCenter Integration Service, as well as the profiling warehouse connection and the connections associated with the cluster configuration.
    If you select No, you can configure the application services from the Administrator tool.
If you choose to configure the services and connections, the
Configure Informatica application services
section appears. If you choose not to configure the services and connections, the
Post-Installation Summary
section indicates whether the installation completed successfully. The summary also shows the status of the installed components and their configuration.
