Foundation Service Remains In Starting State If SMTP Mail Server Parameters Are Defined Under Common Settings In EPM Configurator

(Doc ID 2282253.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2017

Applies to:

Hyperion BI+ - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You've run the EPM Configurator utility to configure Hyperion Foundation. On the Configure Common Settings page, you've defined a mail server (host, port and email address). After the configuration is successfully completed, you try to start the Foundation Service (Shared Services) but it never fully launches; the Status remains as "Starting". If you run through the Configurator again and clear out all the SMTP fields, the Foundation Service subsequently starts without incident.
