EPM configurator – host unreachable

I was recently working on an Windows 2008R2 environment build and was hit with the following error in the configurator:

Alternative methods for migrating Planning 9.3 Business Rules to Calculation Manager

As you are probably well aware that Business Rules are no more in and Calculation Manager is the product to manage rules, Hyperion Business Rules were always quite problematic and over the years I have seen so many issues and posts relating to them and to be honest the functionality never improved through the versions so I welcomed the end to HBR.

Standalone Essbase using external authentication

I have not actually be involved with any clients that use Essbase in standalone mode since pre version 9 days and to be honest I really don’t see the point in it nowadays and it is not really true standalone as you still need to configure the Shared Services registry but saying that I do notice from forum posts that it is still being used and the question about using external authentic

Planning Outline Load Utility Enhancements Part 3

In the previous two parts I went through the majority of the new functionality available with the Outline Load Utility, there is one remaining piece which I will quickly go through today and that is extracting data to a flat file.

The loading of meta/data can now be achieved from a relational source but unfortunately the new functionality of extracting data can only be to a target flat file, I am sure in future releases a relational target option will be added.

ODI – Extracting Essbase attribute members bug + fix

Just another really quick update from me today, I have seen a few posts on the issue in the past and noticed there is an actual fix available now so I thought I would go through the problem and the fix.

The issue definitely exists on and I believe it exists in unpatched and 10g.

Planning Outline Load Utility Enhancements Part 2

In the last blog I went through some of the new functionality with the Outline Load Utility and today I am going to continue and go through loading data from a relational source.

I am not going to cover any of the properties again so if you have not done so it is probably worth having a read of the last blog.

Planning Outline Load Utility Enhancements

I noticed that the recent patch release of planning includes some additional functionality for the outline load utility that is worth going through.

With each release the outline load utility seems to gain extra functionality and it has just grown from strength to strength since its first appearance in

It is a utility that I know has made consultants lives much easier, it is simple to use and is now packed with functionality.

The enhancements in this patch release are

ODI – Planning KM bug + fix

Just another really quick update from me today, I have seen a few posts on the following issue and it actually hit me first time I used with planning so I thought I would quickly go through the problem in case anybody else hits it.

The issue seems to be only related to

When you create an Interface to load from any source to a planning application and go to select the IKM you will probably see the following. Compact deployment performance degradation

A quick post from me, if you running a compact deployment and in particular planning then you may experience performance degradation due to the default ODL logging level setting.

In most circumstances a compact deployment will be used in a Dev, POC, cloud, personal laptop type scenario and the last thing you need is any type of performance issues so updating the logging level is worth implementing.

ODI Series – Standalone Agent High Availability using OPMN

There are a few options around to offer high availability with ODI agents and the usual route is to deploy and cluster two or more J2EE agents,  these would then be fronted by a HTTP server.  Using this method allows for load balancing of the active/active agents and the failover of the scheduler as only one agent should be the scheduler.
