11.1.2.3.500 Sample Planning application and more

I have always found the sample application that comes with planning to be a bit of a disappointment and it does not really showcase planning functionality very well, there is not much information on what it is about and it has not been updated since the early days of version 9 plus you have to go through the cumbersome process of creating, initialising and then loading the data.

EPM patch 11.1.2.3.500 has landed

Finally after a long wait EPM 11.1.2.3.500 has arrived and the patch comes in a bundled 1.8GB download or as Oracle likes to call it a superpatch.

There are a few exceptions as the .500 Essbase related products were released last week and are separate downloads, I believe this also applies to DRM.

EPM 11.1.2.3 – Purging LCM migration status report

Prior to 11.1.2.3 it was possible to purge migration status reports from within Shared Services.

Where does EAS store user information

I have been meaning to write up this blog for a long time but never got around to it, recently there was a post on the Oracle forums which kick started me into finally addressing the topic.

In the pre 11.1.2 world of EAS it was simple to find out what users, server, profiles were being used in EAS as the information was all stored in XML files within the EAS storage directory.

LCM 11.1.2.3 now supports planning essbase data (after patching)

A quick update from me as I noticed an 11.1.2.3 patch was recently released for Shared Services:

Patch 17307819: PSU 11.1.2.3.050

EPM 11.1.2.3 clone utility

Whenever I complete a build of an environment I test out basic functionality of the installed products with a set of sample applications, reports and integrations, if there are a number of environments to build this process can sometimes be a little tedious so I was looking for a way to speed up and simplify the process.

In 11.1.2.3 a new command line utility appeared which allows the cloning of environments and it basically uses LCM (Lifecycle Management) as the engine to achieve this.

11.1.2.3 Planning – email configuration

To configure the email server in all planning releases prior to 11.1.2.3 it would be done through the system settings area in each application and this had to be done by the application owner.

Patch available for 11.1.2.3 EAS web console bug with Java 7 update 45

Recently I posted a blog about an issue with 11.1.2.3 EAS web console and Java 7 update 45, if the update is applied then the web console is blank when opened and cannot be used.

I just noticed that there has been new patch set updates (11.1.2.3.003) released for Essbase related products which includes the following:

11.1.2.3 EAS web console with Java 7 update 45

Update: PSU released to fix issue:
Patch 17609518: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ESSBASE ADMINISTRATION SERVICES SERVER 11.1.2.3.003

If you are running 11.1.2.3 and use the EAS web console with Java 7 then make sure you don’t apply update 45 or the console will stop working.

Essbase 11.1.2.3.002 PSU incorrectly packaged

Update 6th November 2013: 11.1.2.3.003 PSU now available for Essbase related products and are correctly packaged.

I was intending on applying the latest patch set update 11.1.2.3.002 for the Essbase related products and noticed an issue with the Essbase Server and RTC patches which I thought I would share.

Now I know that the problem will be soon rectified and I will update this post when it has been updated in Oracle Support.
