    Hyperion EPM Dimension Server in Windows

    871233
      Hi
      We have installed EPM 11.1.2.1 components in a distributed manner.
      Box 1- Linux X86 64
      EPM Foundation Services,EPMA Web Components, Planning
      Box-2- Linux X86 64
      Essbase Server/Essbase Studio Server
      Box3 - Linux X86 64
      Essbase Web Components(EAS, APS), Calc Manager
      Box 4-Linux X86 64
      Reporting and Analysis components(R and A Framework, Financial Reporting,Web Analysis)

      Box5- Windows 2008 R2 Foundation Service Pack 1
      EPMA Dimension Server, HSF

      Everything is working fine except EPMA Components(like Dimension Library, Application Library etc), Whenever I try to access , Dimension Library, Application Library and other EPMA components from EPM Workspace Administer menu, I get the following error.

      An error was encountered by the CAS Security Provider: EPMCSS-00301: Failed to authenticate user. Invalid credentials. Enter valid credentials.

      When I check the epma.log on the linux it is showing similar error. When I check DimensionServer.log under diagnostics in Windows Server(i.e. Box 5), I see similar error

      I think I am missing some kind of configuration in Windows side, maybe on IIS Server, not sure what those configurations are, I appreciate if you can provide any suggestions to resolve this issue. BTW, we are using Native LDAP only, I saw a Oracle Support note for applying patch for a similar error Microsoft AD is used as LDAP provider.

      Thanks
