Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


During the upgrade of a Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application from an earlier release, some forms may fail to get updated to the 11.1.2.x schema format.

The following types of warning messages may appear in the log of the HFM Schema Upgrade utility (the log should be checked in a text editor to see what is reported to have happened). In the below example some parameters have been anonymised to protect the identity of the source data e.g.

MW_HOME = Middleware Home = c:\oracle\Middleware\ or similar
appname = name of the application being upgraded
authorusername = name of the user who created that particular form
servername = name of the server on which the schema upgrade utility is being executed.
