We are pleased to announce the Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IICS) Summer 2019 release.
For any updates during the upgrade you can check out our Summer ’19 FAQ by clicking https://network.informatica.com/docs/DOC-18286.
Informatica recommends you have at least 5GB of free disk space available for the agent upgrade. If you do not have enough free space, you can consider archiving logs you no longer need, please refer: https://kb.informatica.com/faq/7/Pages/15/328115.aspx
The upgrade packages will be pushed to your agent host earlier than the upgrade. We do this to minimize the downtime. This will show as a new agent in STANDBY mode. There is no need to be concerned. The new agent will only come up after the upgrade.
Pre-release Program: The objective of the IICS pre-release is to provide customers the ability to preview new functionality and test drive changes prior to the upcoming IICS release. The pre-release environment will be upgraded to the upcoming IICS Summer 2019 release on July 8, 2019.
To participate in the IICS pre-release, please consult this https://network.informatica.com/docs/DOC-15547. The community post provides details about how to set up your permanent pre-release organization, if you haven’t already done so during the previous release.
