Configuration Support Manager for IIR

Version 1

    Introduction

    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 including CSM for IIR.

    You can use CSM of IIR to gather your configuration, system, environment and product details of the machine hosting Informatica Identity Resolution (IIR).

     

    CSM gathers data from IIR, which can help in troubleshooting issues related to

    • ODBC/Relational connectivity details
    • Details specific product issues with versions and patches
    • Various servers availability details
    • Configurations details
    • Environment details
    • License details

    Purpose/ Usage

     

    With CSM’s integrated capabilities of configuration management, when you upload the XML file to our support system from your profile, CSM automatically gathers your configuration information of the machine hosting IIR.

    The information gathered through CSM for IIR, and the XML file that you upload or send, enables Informatica Support to:

     

    • Find any anomalies/symptoms that could cause issues.
    • Help replicate or reproduce an issue by creating similar environment.
    • And, aid to provide a solution for the issues easily and quickly.
    • Help in Configuration Management of your environment
    • Provide relevant health check recommendation
