Financial Reports services missing?

(Posted under BI Challenge to Go first, but then this seemed the right place.)

I'm trying to install Oracle EPM version 11.1.2.1, and I'm pretty far along, but this seems weird. Everything is installed and configured, but I have no Windows service(s) for FR on the services tier server.

Looking at the startup order in the Installation and Configuration Guide, I see Financial Reporting Services listed just before Financial Reporting application server. I assume this is what used to be the 4 services on the services tier server that have been consolidated to 2, but I don't see any.

I double-checked the installer, and I have no check box under the 'Services' tier heading for FR, and no "Financial Reporting Services" item listed when I go into "choose individually." This seems wrong, but I'm not sure. I re-downloaded all 13 files from e-delivery that are flagged as necessary in the Readme. Still, nothing.

Print server is installed with the FR client, evidently? Is it not a server-side service anymore? Or is it now OK to install the FR client on the same machine that the server is on, which used to cause problems?

Thanks for your consideration,

-- Joe

    Hi Joe,

    There are only 2 services for Financial Reporting in 11.1.2.1, one is for the Financial Reporting Web Application which is under Reporting and Analysis > Financial Reporting in the installer, the service should be created when the FR Web Application is deployed using the EPM configurator
    The other service is the Print Server which is part of the FR Studio installer, you can install it on the server.

    Cheers

    Thanks, John. Does this mean the Java RMI, Report Server, and Scheduler are either elimated or rolled into the webapp?

    BTW it was a screeshot on your blog of the 11.1.2.0 installation (5 of 31) which has a check box under 'Services' for FR that made me nervous I was missing something from the installer.

    It seems weird, though, that the print server is installed a different way.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    11.1.2.1 is slightly different than 11.1.2.1 so the screenshots are a bit out of date, the FR components have all been combined with the exception of the print server, there is a bit more information in the 11.1.2.1 new features readme - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17236_01/epm.1112/readme/epm_1112100_readme.html
    Maybe the print server is now standalone as it is windows only and it could be used on a dedicated windows server without having to go through epm installer route.

    Cheers
