Configure the DCOM setting for the HFM adapter in the DCOMCNFG tool.
Also re-configure the HFM DCOM setting.
couple of issue try to reconfiure fdm and then make necessary changes in adapter and then enter password and check.
Specified cast not valid- 90% of the time its issue that the target system cannot be reached , check firewall and try to ping the target machine from fdm server.
Both HFM Application and FDM Application are on the same Windows Server and Database is on Linux Server.
We have tried Re configuring DCOM, if you can please provide any documents or reference on how to re-configure DCOM setting it would be of great help.
Log into FDMWorkbench client
Select Adapters -> Target System Adapters -> FM11X-G5-E -> Machine Profile
Delete the Machine Profile
Add the Machine Profile.Enter the Machine name details (FDM Application Server Name) ,user id (admin or hypadmin),enter the Domain name :if applicable
Also check whether windows service user or the dcom user's password has expired or not which you might have used for FDM Configuration application server,loadbalancer ,if so set the password to set never expire (contact your windows administrator)
Raised a SR with Oracle, it seems Patch updates or Virus Scanning process can effect the Adapter.
Because when i copy and paste Adapter software and reconfigure, it is working fine but after a day or two we are encountering the same problem, connection is lost between HFM & FDM.
Will update you once we find the root cause...and please advice if you find a way out.
