Our Configuration Support Manager (CSM) tool has been our backbone in enabling us to gather configuration information from your hosts running Informatica, tracking your configurations, replicate issues and advising health checks. It has been the foundation for our rich configuration management capabilities.

 

Now, building up on this foundation, we have enhanced our CSM capabilities to include more products under its tree which includes CSM for ILM.

 

With CSM for ILM, you can collect the system, environment and product details of the machine hosting Information Life Cycle Management (ILM).

CSM gathers data from ILM metadata repository, which can help in troubleshooting issues related to:

 

  • Specific to versions and patches
  • Accelerators
  • Custom and standard entities
  • Sequences
  • Jobs and schedules

 

And in turn, with the information gathered from the configuration files, Informatica Support can better understand the following:

 

  • ILM Web Server configuration details
  • File archive server configuration details and
  • File archive server for attachments configuration details
