  9. If you choose to provide the SSL certificates, specify the keystore and truststore files and their passwords.
  10. By default, secure HTTPS connection is enabled for Informatica Administrator. However, you can choose to disable it. If HTTPS connection is enabled for Informatica Administrator, choose to use a default keystore or a custom keystore file.
    • If you use the default keystore, the installer creates a self-signed keystore file named Default.keystore in the following location:
      <Informatica installation directory>/tomcat/conf/
    • If you use a custom keystore, specify the keystore file and its password.
  11. Optionally, choose to create the PowerCenter Repository Service and PowerCenter Integration Service while deploying the Docker image.
