1    Overview 

This document is for informatica administration team, providing the detailed steps on installation of Power Center 9.6.1 on Linux & Oracle Environment.

2.     Pre Installation Steps       
2.1   Download Software

Download Software from informatica Corporation and make sure to get proper keys based on environment (Dev/ Prod).

2.2           Setup of Database Parameters, Users & Tablespace
2.2.1 DATABASE PARAMETER
Set the open_cursors parameter to 1000
SQL> SHOW parameter open_cursor;

NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
open_cursors                         integer     300
SQL> ALTER system SET open_cursors=1000;

System altered.

SQL>  ALTER system SET open_cursors=1000 SCOPE=BOTH;

System altered.

SQL> SHOW parameter open_cursors;

NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
open_cursors                         integer     1000
2.2.2   REPOSITORY ACCOUNT
At least two database user accounts (Domain and Repository) are required to host repository, Taking sample names as
USER_REP for the repository Database
USER_DOM for the domain Configuration Database
Both user need to create with the CONNECT, RESOURCE, and CREATE VIEW privileges.
For Oracle, you must perform the following instruction:
CREATE USER USER_REP IDENTIFIED BY USER_REP
DEFAULT tablespace users
TEMPORARY tablespace temp
quota unlimited ON users;

GRANT CONNECT, resource, CREATE VIEW TO USER_REP;

CREATE USER UASER_DOM IDENTIFIED BY USER_DOM
DEFAULT tablespace users
TEMPORARY tablespace temp
quota unlimited ON users;

GRANT CONNECT, resource, CREATE VIEW, SELECT ANY dictionary TO USER_DOM;

The grant “select dictionary privilege” to the user INFA_DOM is only needed to verify the parameter Open_Cursor during the prerequisite check.
  
2.2.3    Repository Table-space

Set the storage size for the table-space to a small number to prevent the repository from using an excessive amount of space.
Also verify that the default tablespace for the user that owns the repository tables is set to a small size. The following example shows how to set the recommended storage parameter for a tablespace named PC_TABLESPACE.

ALTER TABLESPACE "PC_TABLESPACE" DEFAULT STORAGE ( INITIAL 10K NEXT 10K MAXEXTENTS UNLIMITED PCTINCREASE 50 );

2.3      Operating System

2.3.1            Processor
Verify that the process match the software (x86_64)
Display the Linux platform =  uname - p
List the basic system information, OS release, and OS version  = uname -orv
-bash-3.2$ uname -p
x86_64

-bash-3.2$ uname –arv

Linux ServerName 12.66.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 04:15:13 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
2.3.2       Temporary Disk Space Requirements
The installer writes temporary files to the hard disk. When the installation completes, the installer deletes the temporary files and releases the disk space.
Installer UNIX
1 GB
Informatica Services UNIX
2 GB
Verification of the temporary space with the df
-bash-3.2$  df -h /tmp

2.3.3    Unix User Account
On UNIX, create a user account infa91 specifically to run the Informatica daemon required for installation having group privileges’ on Oracle and java groups
2.3.4    Port Validation
Verify that the port numbers are available on the machines where you install Informatica Services.
-bash-3.2$  netstat -tulpn|grep 6005
The installer validates the port numbers that you specify to ensure that there will be no port conflicts in the domain.
-bash-3.2$  netstat -tulpn|grep 6001
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
tcp        0      0 :::6001                     :::*                        LISTEN      4935/java
-bash-3.2 netstat -tulpn|grep 6002
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info  will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
tcp        0      0 ::ffff:127.0.0.1:6002       :::*                        LISTEN      4935/java
-bash-3.2$  netstat -tulpn|grep 6003
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
-bash-3.2$  netstat -tulpn|grep 6004
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
  
2.3.5     Environment Variables

Most UNIX systems use the LANG variable to specify the desired locale but you can use also the set locale function.
2.3.6    Obtain Locale Values
To obtain the locale names for your UNIX system, enter the following:
infa@chetltst201 $ locale -a | grep -i en
en_IN.utf8
en_NZ
en_NZ.iso88591
en_NZ.utf8
en_PH
en_PH.iso88591
en_PH.utf8
en_SG
en_SG.iso88591
en_SG.utf8
en_US
en_US.iso88591
en_US.iso885915
en_US.utf8
en_ZA
en_ZA.iso88591
en_ZA.utf8
en_ZW
en_ZW.iso88591
en_ZW.utf8
french
slovene
slovenian
  
2.3.7  File Descriptor

Informatica service processes can use a large number of files. Set the Linux - File Descriptorlimit per process to 3000 or higher.
In the file /etc/security/limits.conf, add this line:
# PowerCenter
Infa91   hard   nofile    3001
Infa91   soft   nofile    2500
And verify with the ulimit function logged as the power center system user account:
-bash-3.2$  ulimit -Hn
3001
The limit is set to 3001 to prevent an error with the value 300 during the prerequisites check

2.3.8  Installation directory and Permission
As root, create the installation base directory:
Pwd
/infa
mkdir /informatica
chown  755 informatica
cd informatica
mkdir pc91
chown 755 pc91
cd  /infa
mkdir software
chmod 755 software

As the installer (powercenter), copy the file to software directory, unzip and untar it:
