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


After updating the password for Hyperion Financial Management Database Schema User, the HFMWeb0 and HFMWeb1 managed servers are entering an 'Admin' state.  To workaround the behavior, Administrators are accessing the WebLogic Server Administration Console and initiate the Resume option to force the managed servers into a 'Running' state.


The HFMWeb(n).log contains the following errors:

"The returned message is: ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied"

<BEA-001155> <The following exception has occurred:
weblogic.common.ResourceException: Unknown Data Source hfm_datasource
at weblogic.jdbc.common.internal.ConnectionPoolManager.shutdownConnectionPool(ConnectionPoolManager.java:622)

<BEA-149205> <Failed to initialize the application 'hfm_datasource' due to error weblogic.application.ModuleException: .
at weblogic.jdbc.module.JDBCModule.prepare(JDBCModule.java:327)

It is likely that the login or password is not valid.
It is also possible that something else is invalid in
the configuration or that the database is not available.
