Preparing a Microsoft Windows Server for Installation of EPM 11.1.2.x (Doc ID 1303078.1)

Last updated on JULY 28, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Planning - Version 11.1.2.0.00 to 11.1.2.2.000 [Release 11.1]
Hyperion Essbase - Version 11.1.2.1.000 to 11.1.2.2.000 [Release 11.1]
Hyperion BI+ - Version 11.1.2.0.00 to 11.1.2.2.000 [Release 11.1]
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - Version: 2008 R2
The compression/decompression utility should be capable of handling long file paths (a free utility which fulfills this requirement may be downloaded from http://www.7-zip.org)

Database clients (in a preferred 64-bit environment) should be installed in the order of 32-bit then 64-bit. Products which require 32-bit clients include Interactive Reporting and Financial Data Quality Management.


Goal

Many applications can be installed in EPM 11.1.2.0 and EPM 11.1.2.1 environments. These require careful preparation to prevent installation and configuration failures. This article makes some best practice recommendations that will allow a new installation to be robust. The EPM 11.1.2.0 release did not offer upgrade or migration features, so many customers are expected to move up to and take advantage of the new features of EPM 11.1.2.1. In most cases customers who have production environments containing earlier versions of the Hyperion System 9 or Oracle EPM 11 families will need to and want to move to higher specification environments to meet the certification requirements of the environment of this set of products.
