EPM – Notable Differences Between Windows & Linux

Author: Dave Shay | 2 min read | September 17, 2020

Weekends sometimes offer time for some leisurely R&D (especially with the current lock-down/mask rules). I posted previously about some issues I noticed in the Linux edition of Oracle EPM/Hyperion Well, this weekend I finished standing up the Windows edition. Here are some key configuration errors/issues I spotted.

FDM Enterprise Edition (FDMEE)

You’ll find a 3-part post concerning FDMEE errors in Linux. In the Windows edition, I encountered none of those issues. The ODI tables built successfully, and FDMEE in Workspace, ODI Web Studio and ODI Agent were all functional.

Suggestion for Linux users:

Install the Windows edition (you don’t need to configure) and zip up \Oracle\Middleware\odi, ftp it over to your Linux server, and unzip it with the Replace option in /Oracle/Middleware/odi.

Also copy aif.ear from Windows to Linux.

Then re-try your Configure Database and Deploy for FDMEE.

Planning RMI

This starts up just fine in Linux and successfully binds to port 11333. In Windows, we still have the issue I wrote about for and You’ll find the solution to fixing the Windows Registry for Planning RMI here on my blog.

Analytic Provider Services

In Windows, it deploys just fine. In Linux, it gets a deployment error.

Suggested solution for Linux users:

Install the Windows edition of EPM (you don’t need to deploy). Copy aps.ear from Windows to Linux, and then redeploy in Linux.
