When trying to start the workflow, I am getting the above error. I have configured server settings properly and it resolved as well..

which version are you running ?? there could be multiple reasons for this error message, but most probably -

your informatica server configuration is not correct, and therefore the attempt to start the server fails. As a result, when a workflow tried to execute, the attempt to connect to a running server instance fails.

I doubt if all the infa services are running fine.. if actually so, then I would reconfigure my client connection and see if you are actually hitting the right domain/service combination.

I am trying to install Informatica 8.6 server on my Windows 7 Home Edition Laptop with Oracle 11g. I am getting error message:

"Cannot start Informatica services" EXITCODE: S.

There is a long description which says:

"Use the error below and catalina.out and node.log in the server/tomcat/logs directory on the the current machine to get more information." .

When I checked catalina.out, the file is empty and node.log didn't exist in server/tomcat/logs.

Could you please let me know how to get rid of this error if have happened to come across and resolved that or know how to resolve the error?
