EPM Services

I have installed EPM on a Windows 2008 Server with Essbase.

I need the correct order of service restart.I cannot login in Essbase and shared service console after system restart.
Error"Couldnot connect to the admin server <servername>"

Moreover a service Oracled_hyperion_epmsys~1d_hyperion_user_projects_epmsystem1ConfigurationManager is installed along with other services.I don't understand the use of that service.

The list of services are

Oracle Process Manager (EPM_epmsystem1)
Oracle Process Manager (ohsInstance3474459276)
Hyperion Foundation Services-Managed server Application
Hyperion Administration services-Web application
Hyperion Studio Service BPMS bpms1
hyperion Integration Services
Hyperion Provider Services

Thanks in Advance

    The order of start up is not as important as in previous releases, most important is the rdbms is up and running.
    If you want to log into Shared Services then "Hyperion Foundation Services-Managed server Application" should be running
    For essbase - Oracle Process Manager (EPM_epmsystem1)
    EAS - Hyperion Administration services-Web application

    If you having problems then check the logs in <MIDDLEWARE_HOME>\user_projects\<instancename>\diagnostics\logs\services

    Thanks a lot for your suggestion John.

    But I still don't understand why the service named Oracled_hyperion_epmsys~1d_hyperion_user_projects_epmsystem1ConfigurationManager running on my system.
    none of the oracle docs state about this service.

    My server is windows 2008 server running on VM.Does this VM has anything to do with that service.

    Thankx in Advance

    I dont think OCM will probably not much value to you but here is the info from the docs

    "Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) integrates with My Oracle Support and provides configuration information for Oracle software. It assists in the troubleshooting, maintenance, and diagnostics of your EPM System deployment.”

    The start.bat script does the job. It takes a while to excute though.

    if u want to run manully through bat file
    create notepad

    netstart "Oracle Process Manager (EPM_epmsystem1)"
    netstart "Oracle Process Manager (ohsInstance3474459276)"
    netstart "Oracled_hyperion_epmsys~1d_hyperion_user_projects_epmsystem1ConfigurationManager"
    netstart "Hyperion Foundation Services-Managed server Application"
    netstart "Hyperion Administration services-Web application"
    netstart "Hyperion Studio Service BPMS bpms1"
    netstart "hyperion Integration Services"
    netstart "Hyperion Provider Services"

    to stop use

    give extension .bat

    this could another approach

    Upon inspection I found the service Oracled_hyperion_epmsys~1d_hyperion_user_projects_epmsystem1ConfigurationManager trying to run file
    nmz.exe ,nmesrvc.exe.

    Does this has anything to do with server security?
    I tried installing EPM on my personal Computer but this weird server didn't get registered.

    Please Suggest

    Thanks in Advance

    It is just OCM (Oracle Configuration Manager) and I have already provided an explanation of what it is.

    Thanks John for you replies.

    However after checking the LOGS I found that Foundation Services and Admin Services couldn't start

    Can you please help with this LOG.

    Thanks in Advance

    The Services start-up problem is solved by increasing the JVM size for each services under windows registry.
