I have Informatica 9 and an Oracle database in my system. Now I want to install a SQL Server database in my system and add this database to Informatica.

Is that possible ?

Purpose: I need to migrate some of the tables from SQL Server to Oracle database using informatica.

Could anyone let me know, after installing SQL Server, how can I add this SQL Server database to informatica for creating mapping?

Installing the SQL server software on your system and getting informatica to talk to that are entirely different things.
1.You can for sure install SQL server on your Informatica server system, till the time you are dealing with some varient of Windows. Informatica can be installed on *nix flavours but not SQL server. If your informatica server is not on windows varients, you need to have a separate windows box for sql server installation.

2.Getting informatica to talk to sql server is going to be dependent upon the platform keys that you have for Informatica. Having the driver and everything is fine, but finally informatica allows interaction to OS/databases based on the platform keys, these keys are normally purchased and have therefore price attached to every additional environemnt/database you want to access.

I have two tables to join with a column (say emp_id).. if emp_id in both the tables have null values, how will SQL Server and Oracle treat???

I read that informatica will neglect the NULL rows when joining..if I handle the null, by substituting -1, a cross-join will happen which i don't want..

What can I do here? (I cannot completely neglect the rows which has NULL)

We are bulkloading few of our target Oracle tables. Many of our tables had one column with datatype timestamp(6) with local time zone. when we insert just the date value(mm-dd-yyyy) then target database is defaulting the hh:mi:ss to 11:00:00 PM. But when we make the load type as normal then the it is inserting 12:00:00 AM in hh:mi:ss part. Could someone explain why this is happening?

Thanks in advance.
