    Essbase install

    User553814-OC
      I installed and configureg everything except Essbase on a separate server. Next, I installed Essbase on a Linux server. The charater set is correct, I had the DBA change it before installing anything.

      I get this error,

      Failed to navigate from RegistryWizardState: Error while initializing registry.

      Suggestions please?

      Thanks,

          Did you select connect to a previously configured Shared Services database?
          Have you check the full error in the config logs.

          Cheers

            Previous Config was selected, other option was greyed out.

            ....config log files should be here -     EPM_ORACLE_INSTANCE/diagnostics/logs/config

            I was confused because there were no log files there. As it turns out if you hit cancel from the configtool the instance is deleted, log files and all.

            I left the config tool open after the error and can see some errors that need to be resolved in the registry.log..

              In the log file it looks like there's no problem connecting to a previously configured Shared Sevices Database..I see this error...

              ] [oracle.EPMREG.REG] [tid: 14] [ecid: 0000JvgMqPuC^qd5pfP5iY1HdFHr000002,0] [SRC_CLASS: com.hyperion.hit.registry.ComponentImpl] [SRC_METHOD: getHost] Host SERVER01 could not be resolved.

              SERVER01 is where I installed Foundation. It's a Windows box.

              I can ping it no problem.

              Suggestion?

              Thanks

                From the error it seems that even though you are able to ping the server, you are not able to connect to the host using the configurator.

                Can you try to mention the IP address and the host name of the foundation machine in the hosts file and see if that makes any difference?

                <IP address> <Servername>

                Are you trying this on windows on linux? If you have a windows firewall or Antivirus which is ON you can try to switch it off and see if that makes a difference.

                Thanks,

                  As a test try adding the windows ip/host/dns to the linux hosts file and see if the error still exists.

                  Cheers
