In PowerCenter, while configuring the domains in the client tools, the following error appears:
Error [PCSF_46008] Cannot connect to domain [Domain_Dev] to look up service [coreservices/DomainConfigurationService]
This issue occurs when one of the following conditions:
When connecting from the PowerCenter client to the Informatica server the client will attempt to access the server using the exact name entered for Gateway Host and Gateway Port under Repository > Configure Domains > Edit.
To resolve this issue, do the following:
Confirm that the PowerCenter services are running.
Open the port on which the Informatica Services are running on the server machine.
Confirm the host name can be resolved
Use the telnet command with IP address of the server name first:
telnet <ip_address> <port_number>
If the port is open the command should hang.
If an error occurs while connecting to the port contact the network administrator to open the Informatica Server port.
If it succeeds then use telnet with the host name used when configuring the domain in the PowerCenter client:
telnet <server_name> <port_number>
If using the host name with the telnet command fails then add the IP address and host name of the server hosting the Informatica services to the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file.If this succeeds, please refer to alternate causes listed under the More Information section below.
This can also occur when an incorrect internet domain is appended to server name automatically during installation. For example, servername[.wrongdomain.com] when it should just be servername or servername.rightdomain.com.
This error may also occur the HTTP_PROXY environment variable is set. Refer to article 21288
This can also occur when attempting to use a fully qualified server name to connect to domain using the PowerCenter client.Refer to article 18672
If you are using VPN, refer to article 105699
Incase telnet fails for hostname and it works for IP address to fix it, add hostname IP address of the PowerCenter server to the hosts file in the client machine.
