EPM System Installer
EPM System Installer enables you to install, configure, and deploy multiple products on a machine at one time. EPM System Installer installs components in the correct order, so you can select as many products as you want to install on a machine at one time.
The following EPM System products are not installed and configured using EPM System Installer:
- Oracle's Hyperion® Data Integration Management (see the Hyperion Data Integration Management Installation Guide)
- Data Integration Management Adapters. (see the Hyperion Data Integration Management Installation Guide)
- Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management (see the Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management NTier Installation Guide)
Assemble the files
If you are installing from a network drive, map this drive and avoid spaces in the path.
- Unzip the EPM System Installer into one directory for instance EPMInstall
- Unzip the installation assemblies into the same directory
If you are prompted that any files or common components already exist, click Yes to overwrite the files.
The /assemblies directory should include a subdirectory for each product that you want to install on this machine. Ensure that the /assemblies directory looks as follows:
assemblies/ NameOfTheProduct/ VersionOfTheEPMProduct/ assembly.dat
To install EPM System products from Windows :
- Double-click installTool.cmd in the root directory to which you extracted the EPM System Installer files.
- or from a Windows console, change to the root directory to which you extracted the EPM System Installer files and enter installTool.cmd -console.
The installer launch and verify the prerequisites :
Choose your language and you obtain the first installation screen :
Hit next :
The destination path cannot contain spaces; for example, C:\Program Files is not acceptable (unless you use short path notation).
The destination you specify becomes the Hyperion home directory.
Hit next, choose a display option.
For this tutorial, I choosed the display option “Choose component individually”.
The products that appear in the selection box are based on the product that you unzipped into the installation directory
Verify that you have all the products you want and hit the next button. Then, the summary windows appear.
Review the summary of products to be installed. If necessary, click Back and make corrections. Click Next to begin the installation.
The progress is then reported in the dialog and take a long time.
After the installations are complete, the ‘Summary’ step shows the status of the installed products:
Then, you can press :
- the “Configure” button and the EPM System Configurator was launched.
- the “Finish” button and launch the “EPM System Configurator” (available on the Windows Start Menu under All Programs / Oracle EPM System / Foundation Services / EPM System Configurator )
Prerequisites - Creation of the metadata repository in Oracle
Two repository database are necessary :
- one for the shared service
In this tutorial, only one database account/schema is used (EPMREP created below) but it's a best practice to create two differents accounts.
Connect as SYS as sysdba and run the script below. If you don't know your connection parameters, see this article : Oracle Database - How to retrieve the connect descriptor parameters? (host, port, service name and SID).
CREATE USER EPMREP IDENTIFIED BY EPMREP DEFAULT TABLESPACE USERS TEMPORARY TABLESPACE TEMP PROFILE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; -- 1 Role for EPMREP GRANT CONNECT TO EPMREP; ALTER USER EPMREP DEFAULT ROLE ALL; -- 12 System Privileges for EPMREP GRANT CREATE SYNONYM TO EPMREP; GRANT ALTER SESSION TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE VIEW TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE SESSION TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE SEQUENCE TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE PROCEDURE TO EPMREP; GRANT ALTER USER TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE TRIGGER TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE TABLE TO EPMREP; GRANT SELECT ANY DICTIONARY TO EPMREP; GRANT CREATE TYPE TO EPMREP; GRANT ALTER SYSTEM TO EPMREP; -- 1 Tablespace Quota for EPMREP ALTER USER EPMREP QUOTA UNLIMITED ON USERS;

Essbase Administration Services, Studio, workspace
Hit the ‘Next’ button and you are prompted for specific database system settings for :
You can use the previously configured database or add an other one.
Repository Directory : Specify the directory where the Reporting and Analysis repository data is stored. For example:
If you are replicating repositories, specify a write-able, shared drive. Don't upgrade
If you are upgrading from a previous release, ensure that the repository location of the previous release is specified.
Port Ranges : Specify the port range to use for EPM Workspace services.
Application Server Deployment
|Ear/War||the components to deploy|
|Name||Displays the server name|
|Port||Accept the default port, or, to change the default, enter a port number that does not conflict with other applications installed on your machine.|
|SSL Port||Accept the default port, or specify the SSL port to use for automatic deployment. Specifying this port sets up SSL using the Java application server's default certificates.|
|Advanced Set up||If you have set up a cluster, or plan to set one up, click “Set up.” See Cluster Setup. If you do not select “Set up,” EPM System Configurator adds this deployment to a default cluster with the name Default.|
During Deployment, EPM System Configurator deploys the application to:
Under this directory, the bin directory contains start and stop scripts for all deployed applications. For each application, there is also a setCustomParamsProduct.bat|sh file, where JAVA_OPTIONS can be changed when starting using start scripts.
Web Server for Workspace
- The port of the Essbase - Server Agent
If the ESSLANG variable is changed after applications are created on an Essbase Server computer, those applications cannot be started.
Deploy Essbase in standalone mode
Select to use legacy security for Essbase Server instead of Shared Services security. By selecting this option, you can shut down Shared Services and Oracle to maximize memory
Configuration of Essbase Server
You have to register first against the Essbase - Servers before you can use it.
