How to verify information that should be entered for the Informatica Connection Login Object


You are trying to create a login Object for your Informatica RA agent and wish to ensure you are entering the correct information for the prompts.


Describe cause here


Here's a test that you can try that will verify that the data you entered into the Informatica agent and Connection object definitions is valid and works outside of AM (or OM):
o Please open your Informatica Agent's definition.
o The Informatica tab shows the directory for the pmcmd (api) executable (Path to pmrep and pmcmd Directory): For example an agent in house has the directory of "C:\Informatica\PowerCenter8.6.0\server\bin."  That is the directory you will want to start from on the machine where your Informatica directory is located. 
o Next look at the connection object (login) For Informatica to get values which are used in the example test below.
o Login to the machine where the informatica directory is located
o Open a command prompt and cd to the informatica directory you found earlier on the Informatica tab in the agent definition.
o Below is an example sequence of commands to connect to the Integration Service to test the connection That was conducted in house:
Informatica(r) PMCMD, version [8.6.0], build [178.0612], Windows 32-bit
