HsxServer Runs Out of Ports During Startup and Shuts Down. When Attempting to Open HFM Applications Users Get "EPMHFM-66076: Server <serverName> is unavailable, connection could not be established." (Doc ID 2210879.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 21, 2021

Applies to:

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


HFM applications will not open, but rather they present the following error when users attempt to open them.

"EPMHFM-66076: Server <serverName> is unavailable, connection could not be established." 


Further investigation of the system logging, shows oracle-epm-fm-hsx-server.log indicates the following exceptions: (default location for oracle-epm-fm-hsx-server.log is <diskDrive>\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\<instanceName>\diagnostics\logs\hfm)

"EPMHFM-66024: No port is available from the port range configured by the user : <portRange>"

"EPMHFM-66021: An error occurred while initializing module"


May have updated the 'DSStartupOption' parameters for HFM applications and environment may contain 10 or more HFM applications.
