    HFM Configuration - Issue with Consolidation Administration




      This is regarding a new/fresh installation EPM and have an issue with configuration on HFM; the deployment is distributed as below

      1) Server 1 : Foundation,WebLogic Admin(/OHS) - Workspace/Shared Services/Planning/Calc Manager/EAS/APS

      2) Server 2: Essbase

      3) Server 3 : EPMA/HSF/HFM(FDMee/DRM-Yet, to be installed and configured) - Hadnt used these products and this is totally new to me.



      We have issues with HFM - and while opening the Consolidation Administration.

      We get an error as below, in workspace


      An unexpected error has occured.Check server log or contact your system administrator for more information.




      The web app logs suggested below errors- This is only part of the error log



      Part of log

      oracle.adf.model.adapter.DataControlFactoryImpl] [SRC_METHOD: createSession] Exception: [[

      oracle.adf.model.adapter.AdapterException: DCA-29000: Unexpected exception caught: oracle.epm.fm.common.exception.HFMException, msg=There is no registered cluster or server


      I hadnt configured 'Configure Cluster' during the HFM configuration; this was a mistake being new to HFM.

      On a further readup online on OTN etc, found that an application cluster is a must have on HFM, even if it is for one server.


      Have one confusion now for fixing this,

      Do a configuration only for 'Configure Cluster', and restart services to fix this issue


      Do a configuration for 'Configure Cluster'and then again re-Configure HFM components

      Configure > Financial Management — Configure Cluster

      Re-Configure > Financial Management — Configure Application Server

      Re-Configure >  Financial Management — Configure Web Server

      Re-Configure >  Financial Management — Configure Web Application

      Re-Configure >  Financial Management — Enable Smart View Provider

      Re-Configure >  Financial Management — Enable Life Cycle Management Provider

      Re-Configure >  Financial Management — Enable Web Services
