I installed EPM 126.96.36.199 on Windows 2008 Server Standard R2 64 bit.
Installation was successful. Database also resides in the same machin
In configuration tool, I choose the first step which is the Home Directory for EPM Oracle Instance ( I left the default of C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects )
and EPM Oracle Instance name (epmsystem1). In the next steps, I see the title "Setup Shared Services and Registry Database Connection associated with the instance home".
But, the option "Connect to a previously configured Shared Services Database" is preselected and this option and the other option "Perform First-Time configuration of Shared Services database"
are both greyed out. Why? This is my first time install and configuration.
Still I tried entering the Oracle Database Connection information, but the connection doesn't connect if I use the machine name. It works only when I mention "localhost".
But then it gives me a message "EPMCFG:10372: The database doesn't contain Shared Services information", which is true since this is my first time configuring.
How do I get the greyed out options enabled so that I can perform first time configuration of Shared Services.
Before I could read your reply, I uninstalled EPM and re-installed. After installation completed, I launched the Configurator from the last window, instead of launching it separately later. And it worked this time. All the configurations completed successfully.
But now, I have different issues, I am not able to go to any URL including the Workspace URL. I get 401 error. When I run diagnostics tool, I get a lot of entries highlighted in red. Most of them under the category HTTP. I will post the entries later. I tried stopping EPM system and restarting many times but nothing helped.
FYI... I deployed them all to Single Web Application Server (Web Logic) and when it asked for Web Server, I chose the WebLogic HTTP server which was the default option. IIS is also installed and services are running.
