Oracle EPM Is Available on Oracle eDelivery

Author: Dave Shay | | October 27, 2020

The EPM Certification Matrix has been updated for on-premises Hyperion/Oracle EPM

The online Feature Comparison Tool hasn’t been updated as of this writing. The README, however, lists a boatload of bugfixes. HFM shops should inspect the README carefully and allow sufficient time for rigorous regression testing.

There’s about 2GB remaining in my download queue, and then it will be time to take it for a spin.

Initial observations:

  • Still no certified migration path from and older.
  • The certification matrix says HFM isn’t available for Linux 7 yet. Fortunately, I don’t have any customers screaming for this (yet). I do have customers who’ve expressed interest in running Essbase on Linux 7 instead of Linux 6. Linux 6 is a dead product and Linux 7 has faster disk I/O drivers, among other improvements.
  • Installation media is only available for 64-bit Microsoft Windows and Linux 7. Solaris and AIX (“AIX ain’t UNIX“) aren’t listed.
  • In-place “Apply Updates” upgrade is available if you’re on through
  • The LCM bug for Google Chrome has apparently been fixed.
  • The README provides the workaround for Planning RMI not binding to its port.
  • No mention if the FDMEE Linux bugs have been fixed or not.
  • The README explains why I can’t login to EAS; an Oracle WebLogic policy update is needed. The problem may have been introduced in, as my sandbox works just fine.
  • The README has a very important note about LDAP hosted through MSAD; every Microsoft shop will need to get in front of this before Microsoft forces our hand in 2021.
