Install the PowerCenter Adapter on Windows (Optional)

Install the PowerCenter Adapter on Windows (Optional)

To install the adapter on Windows, deploy the adapter to the Informatica services and client installation directories. You must also register the adapter to the Informatica services installation directory. If you use the Publish connector on local Informatica services and client option to deploy the adapter, you do not need to complete these steps.
After you use the Informatica Connector Toolkit to export the adapter, perform the following steps to manually install the adapter:
  1. Shut down the Informatica domain and Informatica Developer tool applications on which you plan to deploy the adapter files.
  2. Perform the following steps to deploy and register the adapter to the server installation directory:
    1. Copy the installServer.bat file and the server folder from the publish location to the machine in which you have installed Informatica services.
    2. Launch a command window and navigate to the location of the installServer.bat file.
    3. Run following command in the command window: installServer.bat [InformaticaInstallationDir]
      For example, installServer.bat C:\Informatica\10.1.1
    4. If you need to reinstall the adapter or install a newer version of the adapter, run the following command in the command window: installServer.bat [InformaticaInstallationDir] true
  3. Perform the following steps to deploy the adapter files to the client installation directory:
    1. Copy the installClient.bat file and the client folder from the publish location to the machine in which you have installed Informatica client.
    2. Launch a command window and navigate to the location of the installClient.bat file.
    3. Run following command in the command window: installClient.bat [InformaticaClientInstallationDir]
      For example, installClient.bat C:\Informatica\10.1.1\clients
    4. Run the following adapter registry file:
      For a Windows 32-bit system: m/c:<adapter>.reg
      For a Windows 64-bit system: m/c: <adapter>_64.reg
      The generated adapter registry file is deployed in the following location:
      <deploy>\Informatica_PowerCenter\client\PowerCenterClient\client\bin
  4. Start the Informatica domain.
    The Data Integration Service can connect to the MySQL database and you can create MySQL connections in the Developer tool and Administrator tool. The MySQL connection appears when you display the list of available connection types in the Administrator tool, the Developer tool, and the command line.
