Last updated on MAY 20, 2021

Applies to:

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


An Exalytics X5-4 server includes a new implementation of Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) on Linux 2.6.39-400.277.1.el6uek.x86_64.  When trying to migrate an existing HFM 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 environment is on Windows 2008.
  2. Downloaded the HFMCopyApp utility independently from HFM PSU 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 system on Exalytics.
  4. Then ran upgrade step in EPM configurator and selected "Upgrade Applications from Earlier Release".
  5. It immediately failed and the configtool.log shows messages:
