Rebuild of Hyperion server in distributed environment

Vinn

Hi All,

I came across a strange scenario i.e. We are facing an OS issue in one of the Hyperion server where Foundation, EAS, APS, R&A Framework, CalcMgr, and Financial reporting is installed. On a separate server, Essbase is installed.

Server1: Foundation, EAS, APS, R&A Framework, CalcMgr, and Financial reporting( All Hyperion components are installed in E drive whereas an OS is installed in C drive)

Server2: Essbase

As we are facing an OS issue in server1, the windows team wants to reinstall the OS. So do I need to unconfigure and uninstall all Hyperion components? If yes, do I need to deregister the Essbase. If I need to deregister Essbase how can I do this.

Request you to please provide some inputs on this.

Thanks a lot in advance !!

    Hi,

    If you are reinstalling OS in Server1, in my opinion you don't have to worry about uninstalling and removing the existing Hyperion configuration. I would recommend to take necessary LCM and data backups and when you install back Hyperion in Server1, import the backups.

    In Server2, you can uninstall Essbase. Added below an Oracle document for uninstalling. You can install back after Foundation configuration in Server1. If you use the same server name (server1) and reuse the same Foundation database (assuming database still exists) configured before OS reinstallation in server1, I believe Essbase reinstallation in sever2 may not be required as registry is stored in Foundation db (need to test it).

    Actually, we are using the same server name (server1) and reusing the same Foundation database.

    So no need of uninstalling essbase right.

    I never tested it, but looks like it may work. You can test it and in worst case if it does not work, you can uninstall and install back Essbase in server2 instead of uninstalling before hand. Please take necessary backups before you start the activity.

    Hi

    reinsatlling windows means that all your windos registery will be gone

    first of all export your artifacts realted to reports and calc manager and planning applications

    ask Windows team to reinstall OS

    re install EPm components

    reconfigure them using reuse option that will save your data bythe way

    for essbase server you can rename your instance home and create new one

    then import data in your essbase application
