11.1.2.4 Essbase Configuration Bug

Author: Eric Russo | | February 9, 2015

A minor Essbase configuration flaw introduced in Hyperion / Oracle EPM 11.1.2.3 remains present in 11.1.2.4. In particular, the default “essbase.cfg” file that is automatically generated when you deploy Essbase causes all customizations you subsequently manually apply (such as calculator cache sizes, etc.) to be treated as a comment and ignored!

Here’s a typical essbase.cfg file after deploying Essbase with the default options selected within the EPM System Configurator:

Look very carefully at the end of line 11. Notice anything missing?

The MySQL driver description is missing an ending double quote character. As a result, the rest of the file is treated as a continuation of the driver description, until another double quote is found.

The solution is brutally simple: Edit the file, either on the operating system or in the EAS Console, add the ending double quote character, save, and then restart Essbase. You’re now back in business and can start adding tuning-related settings to your Essbase configuration, and now they will actually be used!
