In a previous post I went through the steps on deploying EPM 22.214.171.124 WebLogic based web applications in compact mode.
There were a couple of questions that were left unanswered questions in the post and I have been asked a few times what the answer is to them so I thought I would write up my findings.
There have been a couple of patches released lately for ODI which address issues with the essbase adaptor and I thought it was worth going through them as I have blogged about these specific problems in the past.
One of the new features in planning 11.1.2 was the ability to map and push data to a reporting application, I covered the reporting functionality in an earlier blog which you can read here, one of the drawbacks was if you wanted to push the data to an essbase database it had to be done manually, depending on the size of the data the export/import could take a while and it would be something you would want to schedule out of hours.
I have lost count of the amount times the question has been asked “how can I extract a planning applications outline”, until now the options have been pretty limited, one of the possible methods is to use LCM but it has its limitations and is not in the format that suits everybody.
Since the arrival of version 11 the planning Outline Load utility has done wonders and has been improving with each release, it should have been around well before 11 but at least it did arrive.
I am not here today to announce the release of 126.96.36.199 as I think the news has definitely has been posted enough times now, I’d be extremely shocked if you didn’t know, maybe you have been living in a cave and decided to visit my blog when you first ventured out.
Now with this new release there are more options to move to it, you can upgrade/migrate from previous versions, fresh install or apply the maintenance patch to upgrade 11.1.2 to 188.8.131.52, some of this options I will be covering in future blogs.
Recently I have being working on a project where we were occasionally being hit with various web applications producing 404 errors for no apparent reason, once the issue had occurred the only way to resolve was to restart the web app.
Now you may not be aware that EPM 11.1.2 includes Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control, this is a web based management system which can monitor the availability and performance of all the Java Web Applications across the EPM environment, plus it only requires minimal configuration to get up and running with it.
