Hi,
Informatica uses (afaik) the ICU4C library (Unicode) , which is installed in AIX by default.
But check with
lslpp -l ICU4C.rte
whether it's actually there. I'm rather sure that it is, but if it's missing use "smitty install" to install from your installation CDs/DVD
ICU4C.rte
and if you're going to develop your own Unicode-based applications with ICUC, install as well
ICU4C.adt
Check and change (if needed) the setup of your Informatica server. (Server Configuration -> Compatibility -> UNICODE -> Apply)
As for UTF-8, please check with
lslpp -l "bos.loc.com*"
whether "bos.loc.com.utf" is installed, and check with
locale -a
whether "EN_US.UTF-8" is present.
If it isn't (which I assume) use "smitty mle_add_lang" -> "LANGUAGE translation to install" -> (select "UTF-8      English (United States) [EN_US]")
to install  it from your OS installation CDs/DVD.
For the new packages to be fully integrated into your system you'll have to reboot.
Good luck!
