Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An Exalytics X5-4 server includes a new implementation of Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) 11.1.2.4.201 on Linux 2.6.39-400.277.1.el6uek.x86_64.  When trying to migrate an existing HFM 11.1.2.2 application from the Windows 2008 server, via the HFMCopyApp utility and EPM System Configurator, the migration fails with error:

"Upgrade Applications from earlier Release - status - failed"

Steps that lead to failure are:

  1. Source HFM 11.1.2.2 environment is on Windows 2008.
  2. Downloaded the HFMCopyApp utility independently from HFM PSU 11.1.2.3.702 to allow transfer of source to target.
  3. Utility was installed on the Windows server and then used it to copy existing app to target HFM 11.1.2.4 system on Exalytics.
  4. Then ran upgrade step in EPM 11.1.2.4 configurator and selected "Upgrade Applications from Earlier Release".
  5. It immediately failed and the configtool.log shows messages:
