    problems with DAC server

    1007772
      Good day,

      i'm installing OBIA 11g on a windows server 2008 machine , i followed the documents to install Informatica 9.1.0 & DAC 11.1.1.6.4
      the installation were perfect ,but my DAC server is not running,i think because i missed with some Environment variables
      could any one show me the "good" values of the following environment variables:

      -INFA_HOME
      -INFA_DOMAINS_FILES
      -PATH
      -INFA_RESOURCES

      i'm not even sure that all of them must be there,

      thanks for the help :)

            thanks for your reply
            but it doesn't help much,i can't start the DAC server ,when i choose "DAC server management" , the options of "start,restart,stop server" are inactive ,i can't select them !

            also,i'm not able to connect to informatica service & repository from DAC,as they can't find the DAC server
            and even when i select "connect on local machine" , it gives the following error:

            for Server:
            FATAL ERROR during initialization:
            Error initializing c:\DAC\dac/pmlocale.bin. Make sure the environment variable INFA_HOME is defined and set to where Informatica products are installed.

            then it shows this:
            Failure connecting to "INFORMATICA_REP_SERVER"!

              See this from section A.5.1 http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20490_01/bia.7963/e19038/app_supporting_tasks.htm for defining the env variables

                thanks for the document,i checked my values
                but still nothing changed,i'm getting same errors,i can't "start" the DAC server

                even when i start the server from startserver.bat , it gives a weird error message :
                "windows can't find "-server" make sure you typed the name correctly,and then try again"

                  this really works
                  i can't thank you enough
                  the DAC server is now running

                  i'll see if the other errors are rolled out also
