This problem is with the Windows XP Home.Thats the reason why everytime u start the services it gets disconnected. You need to have a Windows XP Professional. The XP Home version doesnt support one functionality compared to XP Professional. That function is IIS(Internet ... Services).I am not sure about the correct abbreviation but you will find it in XP Professional.
Answered On : Aug 30th, 2006
hi priya its better once you uninstall the software and restart the system and then reinstall software then u will be get working well. even though if u get the same problem plz change ur operating system Generally win XP professional service pack2 is very gud for testing.

You need to change the Operating System that is the solution for your problem.
Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Advanced Server or WINDOWS NT will be ideal.

If the Informatica repository server is not starting the go to the Repository server setup change the the port no that min value writen on the below field ,at least more that the minimum value.and put your passward that is must.
If your Informatica Server is not starting then workflow manager and configure the server there.

I too faced the same problem. But I resolved it. I guess there is some default firewall runnning which is stopping the services to start. Disable your firewall and then try to start the services. It should work. Its the way worked for me.

This is for Informatica 7.1.3 installation1) Click launch.exe ( I mean setup file of informatica)2) Select powercenter for windows3) Give product key of license.txt file from new license key folder4) Configuring repository servera) Provide a name for your repository server.b) Provide password for administering repositoryc) Provide license keys.d) After this restart windows. Because we must restart windows before running informatica repository server.e) Start repository server(pmrepserver) in Control panel --> Administrative tools --> Servicesf) Check whether it is running or not Control panel --> Administrative tools -->Event Log Viewer--> pmrepserver properties5) Creating repositoryGo to repository server administrator console.a) register new repository server with hostname and port number.b) when configuring repository we have to provide connection stringThat is native connection string to connect to the database.When we install oracle it will create a connection string whose name is same as Service name(SID). We have to provide that name for connection string while configuring repository.c) create a database user by the following command in SQL plus. Create user

Check the exact error message in the even viewer log for the pmserver entry(navigate using settings--> control pannel-->Admin tools-->eventviewer.
Probably this is relating to the port number. Change the port number to the one between max and min port number.
Check the Administrator password.
If you can't do let me know again.

your tip worked for me...

guys n gals,
please install xp-sp2 and then oracle 10g, then continue the informatice steps. you won't get that type of problems.
once i also got the same problem, then i reinstalled and got rid of the problem
Answered On : Apr 3rd, 2007
Try to re-install software once again and check the configuration weather you have given proper information or not.
Answered On : Apr 16th, 2007
I think, the problem is like you have installed and configured both server and repository manager,
then you are trying to start the informatica and repository manger sevices,at that timesevices get started and stopped immediatelybygiving message like no work is assinged toserver
If that is the problem, you may haveconfigured the informatica server with diffenrentrepository name,user and passwordand in repository admin console you are tryingto configure the repository for otherusername,
If that is not the problem, there may beproblemwithhost name (may not matching) (Localhost/comp.name/ip address)

Code page: default
27. Server Variables:
$PMRootDir: C:Program Filesinformaticainformatica PowerCenter 6.2-Server - all others should be set to the default values

Dear Nagesh and Priya, I got the complete solution for your queries. I too had the same problem for the last one week, one of my friend provided me the step by step process on configuring the things correctly in informatica. Now the issue is fixed. All the credit goes to my friend.I got the word document (54 pages)with screen shots and step by step instruction, but I don't find any option to attach the file in this forum. Please let me know how to attach the file at the earliest. Probably this document will be a key solution for the all those who come with the same problem.The document contains the configuration procedure and a sample excercise.RegardsG.R
Answered On : May 8th, 2007
I am seeing most of the people are facing the same problem.
In Informatica server setup check these things :
1. Check your user id & password, connecting string & hostname etc...
somewhere you may missed in repository.
2. Check your default IP in your system, in server you have to give the same
ex :127.0.0.1 under TCP/IP host address.
(to check IP in your system start -> run -> cmd enter -> ipconfig you will get
your system IP address)
3 Add your licenses correctly.
In workflow manager
1. Server which you created name should match with server name given in
2. Make sure you are getting your system IP in server, if not click resolve IP
3. Disconnect your internet connection if connected .
4. Assign your server to the desired folders and start now

Informatica 7.1 only supports Windows 2000 not does not support Windows XP. so you first uninstall XP and with Windows 2000 You can start the services OLAP agent, TNS and Client and Informatica repository agent and finally Informatica.

I would suggest you to install Server2000 with service pack 4...& I ams ure you will not have these problems again...& one more thing don't go for 10g better go for 9i for windows platform & select 'Data warehousing' instead of selecting general purpose application..it works well...all the best

This problem occurs when the server is not configured or it has not worked to process so just go to Informatica work-flow manger and is server tab, click on configure and follow the steps.
Answered On : Aug 1st, 2007
These are my suggestions:
1. Make sure Firewall is OFF and internet is ON.
2. Get your computer's full name and ip address after restarting the computer
3. Go to Start-Programs-Informatica Power Center- Workflow manager - Server (from the menu) - Server configuration - Check whether you have your server name there or not. If yes, edit - go to row where it says "computer or host name" , you will have a web addresss, delete that and enter your ip address and then hit the button resolve address, it should be same as you entered. but it will change the ip address to your computer name.
if xyz is your computer name then
it should look like this (before)
Computer name : xyz.xyz.com ipaddress : 127.0.0.1
enter your ip address at the web address spot and hit resolve ipaddress button
it should change to (after)
Computer name : xyz ipaddress ###.###.#.#
Now close the workflow monitor, go to workflow manager, enter your admin password - right click the server - and click run monitor - it should say connected .. boom ...
Do not change any port settings or Operating systems etc.
it should work everywhere.
Thanks. hope this helps.

Pls goto the event viewer and check the Problem. If you cant clear the problem. Un install the Informatica clear the registry and install it.
I had the same problem during installation. I could be because ur antivirus is blocking the running of repository server Try to stop the antivirus and run again . In my case I had to uninstall it.

Just give host name as your computer name while configure informatica server.

Check if you have installed some anti-virus/anti-spam softwares in your pc. Some of this softwares does not allow the repository server from starting. Uninstalled the softwares and try starting the repository server service.

You need database installed in your PC to connect it to repository. Without database you cannot start repository.

I understand from your blogs that you people are experiencing an issue with Informatica Repository Service not running permanently when you start it. For this, I suggest you to first configure Informatica Repository Server correctly. This mistake can occur when you not properly given the 'server name' and 'TCP/Host name'.
If this still occurs, this issue can occur if the repository service is not registered in registry. So, I suggest you to try unregister and register repository server service file.
If still persists, uninstall ONLY Repository server.

first choose windows nt server ,sp4,internet exp 6 then start installation
it will create repository.
before this install oracle9i and create user with ur name password with ur name.
then start services.they start.
if you got problem mail me
Informatica repository name placed in 2 different places.
1) Server-->Informatica server setup.
2) Client-->Informatica Repository console(Here we generally create repository name and start the repository)
Both the places Repository name should be same other wise when you try to start Repository service it will be stoped automatically.
some times i faced this type of problem due to automatic change of IP address in server config ....
priya go to workflow manager-->server confign--> check ur IP address if it is changed then click on RESOLVE button.
and start informatica in windows service.
if u ve installed oracle forms & reports then uninstall it.again reinstall informatica.give the port no.correct
first u answer me about
whether u r facing problems from informatica server or informatica repository server
if it is from informatica server the solution is 1st u have to start the informatica repository server and then informatica server other wise i mean if u do in reverse server could not be started it will be stopped
if u r not starting repository server u have to configure it again
ok if u have any doubts mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I faced same problem while installing the inforamtica powercenter 7.1.1 for the first time but my friend showed me and then took screenshots.
See now first thing you need to install inforamatica, config inforamtica server then repository server.
then give perticular port number you can give hostname as your name if it is training and port number 9999 as it will be easy to identify then you need create repository but first dont forget to start the repository server .
Ok now you have to go to repository manager create the repository and start the repository for this your db means oracle should be started already.
then in the workflow manager create the connection for the relation source in connections tab if it is relational otherwise other.
then create repository server and give it perticular hostname resolve the server , give the path to perticular session logs etc.
At the end you need to assign the server and select the required or all workflows for the perticular server.
start the informatica server then test it is working correct or not because till the server will not be configured correctly informatica server services will not start though repository server service started.
if any issue email@example.com
I had the same problem plazz tell what you did to the probel.

First check you install informatica properly or not, once again reinstall the Informatica software, then goto the services in that right click the Informatica Repository Server in that refresh option is there, click that one, if the started service is stopped means, you didn't install Informatica properly, and also check you install any Java or Dot Net or Apache server or any server means you disable the services, then it works try it.
