Preface 7
Chapter 1

Overview
This chapter includes the following topics:

• Introduction to Axon, 8
• Installation Overview, 8
• Installation Process, 8

Introduction to Axon
Axon is a knowledge repository and governance tool that stores the core data items and the business context
of your organization. Owners, Stewards, Subject Matter Experts and other responsible stakeholders
collaborate to progressively chart the business reality of data, its lineage, and usage across processes,
policies, projects, and regulation.

Installation Overview
Informatica provides a pre-validation utility to verify if your system meets the software requirements for
installation and an installer to install Axon. Use the installer to install only Axon, only the Axon Agent, or both
of them.

The Axon Agent is required by Axon to connect to Informatica Data Quality. You can install the Axon Agent on
the same machine where you install Axon, or on a different machine. You must provide the details of your
Informatica domain when you install the Axon Agent.

Installation Process
The installation of the Axon consists of multiple phases.

The installation process consists of the following phases:

Preparation

Set up the system to meet the operating system requirements to ensure that you can successfully install

Verify the Firewall Settings

You must enable the firewall of the machine where you installed Axon to allow requests for the port.

Verify that the Micro Services are Running

Ensure that all the micro services are running after the installation. If Axon or any of the micro services
is not running, run the startup.sh script. If you want to manually stop the Axon services, run the
shutdown.sh script.

The startup.sh and shutdown.sh files are available in the <INSTALLATION_DIRECTORY>/bin/ directory.

Incorrect Hostname
If you encounter an error with the hostname during installation, verify that Axon is using the correct
hostname.

Run the following command to verify the hostname settings: .

hostname -i

If Axon returns 127.0.0.1 or an incorrect IP address as the hostname, verify that you have entered the correct
IP address of your Axon installation.
