Command Reference > infacmd isp Command Reference > EnableNodeResource


Enables an Informatica resource. Informatica resources include file or directory, custom, and connection resources. When you enable a resource on a node, you allow the Load Balancer to distribute tasks that require the resource to that node.
When a PowerCenter Integration Service runs on a grid, the Load Balancer can use resources to distribute Session, Command, and predefined Event-Wait tasks. If the PowerCenter Integration Service is configured to check resources, the Load Balancer distributes tasks to nodes where the resources are added and enabled.
The infacmd isp EnableNodeResource command uses the following syntax:

<-DomainName|-dn> domain_name

<-UserName|-un> user_name

<-Password|-pd> password

[<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain]

[<-Gateway|-hp> gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port...]

[<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]

<-NodeName|-nn> node_name

[<-ResourceCategory|-rc> resource_category ("PCIS", "DIS")]

<-ResourceType|-rt> resource_type ("Custom", "File Directory", "Connection")

<-ResourceName|-rn> resource_name
The following table describes infacmd isp EnableNodeResource options and arguments:
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port ...
Required if the gateway connectivity information in the domains.infa file is out of date. The host names and port numbers for the gateway nodes in the domain.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. If you omit this option, infacmd uses the timeout value specified in the INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT environment variable. If no value is specified in the environment variable, the default of 180 seconds is used.
Required. Name of the node where the resource is defined.
Optional. Category of the resource. Valid categories include:
  • - PCIS. Resource for the PowerCenter Integration Service.
  • - DIS. Reserved for future use.
Default is PCIS.
Required. Type of resource. Valid types include:
  • - Custom
  • - File Directory
  • - Connection
Required. Entire name of the resource.
To list the names of all resources available to a node, run the ListNodeResources command.
