We currently have Hyperion Planning 22.214.171.124 patch 600 running on Win2008R2 with absolutely no issues. However under corporate I.T. policy it is necessary to patch the Hyperion Planning servers (Web/Planning/Essbase servers) with a number of Microsoft patches (way too many for me to mention here).
Please can any infrastructure gurus let me know what problems we can expect when doing windows updates (We have Win2008 R2 sp1).
To my mind areas of concern would be :-
Internet explorer updating to unsupported version.
Automatic Microsoft updates being switched on (they are off).
Changes to the registry that might impact Planning.
Windows Firewall settings (locking us out).
Any links/advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm no infrastructure whizz!
