I didn't get any error when creating it through either the web or the client. Server and app are registered and DCOM is enabled. The security on shared service looks fine. But there must be something I'm missing and I totally run out of clues. Could someone please help me out? Is it something related to server configuration? Any idea would be greatly appreciated! (btw, it's on IE8 and Windows 7)
The snippet you included here is insufficient to determine the problem. Please review all of the logs contained within the \Logs folder on each HFM application server. The most important is the HsvEventLog.Log file. Use the Win32 event log viewer utility on the server to read this, and perhaps it will reveal the root cause.
Was this using the Hyperion sample application files or did you use files from another release? We have seen that an invalid .per file (from another release) will cause similar behavior -- if you used an older .per file I suggest you create a new one in 22.214.171.124 and re-create.
