Why "Enable DCOM" Button in the Financial Management Client Configuration is Still Available After Completed DCOM Configuration? (Doc ID 1363267.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version: 11.1.2.1.000 and later   [Release: 11.1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The option "Enable DCOM" in Financial Management (HFM) Client Configurator is available for the Application services and Web tier installation of Financial Management.

This option enables DCOM for the entire computer. Enabling DCOM makes possible the launching of servers and connecting to objects by remote clients for the machine. It also sets the DCOM Default Authentication level to None for the computer. The Enable DCOM step is required for Financial Management client components to communicate with Financial Management application server components when the application server is on a different computer. It also enables the Financial Management client and application server computers to be on different domains. This option is not available if DCOM is already enabled on the computer.

Why this option becomes available again after initially enabling DCOM on client machine?
