Hyperion Financial Management Error "Provider cannot be found. Ensure that the provider has been installed properly"
Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016
Applies to:Hyperion Financial Management - Version 188.8.131.52.50 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) is unable to start up. The errors in the log file seem to be suggesting that it can no longer communicate with the Oracle database. The error message displayed in the Workspace web interface is just:
There was some communication error
Using the test workaround URL to access Financial Management without Workspace (processlogon.asp) which is still available in version 184.108.40.206.x, gives additional error messages:
An unknown error has occurred in the HsxSQLHelper object.
Provider cannot be found. Ensure that the provider has been installed properly.
