Informatica Admin Console not working.


After installation of Power Center 8.xxx Cannot start Admin Console. It hangs on the following local address.



and after sometime it shows the annoying error of  “Page not found”.

I have checked the Informatica Services are up and running but my admin console does not come up. What to do now?


Resolution: Check which database are you using to store Informatica server data, in my case I was using Oracle server, upon closely checking some of the Oracle services (Schema service, Oracle HTTP server service) were stopped. After starting these services and restarting Informatica services I was able to start admin console.


Check all these services because sometimes error does not clearly show up what is wrong with the application.

    The problem is not just with Informatica..

    It happens when we don’t set the host and port while installing the DBMS..
    connection string is VERY important..

    Make sure the information in the

    matches with
    what you entered for DBMS


    Make sure you installed the database (Oracle10g in my case) with proper hostname and port..

    (I DO NOT connect to any network while installing Oracle)
    I use my computer name(dylan) as host and default port(1521) with sid orcl..

    While installing Informatica server, set connection string for
    repository to hostname:port/db
    (in my case dylan:1521/orcl)..

    Go to services.msc on your Windows machine
    Make sure “WebClient” service is started. If it is disabled , then thats your problem.
    Make it start automatically.
    Now start your informatica admin console. It will work.
