    EPM 11.1.1.3.0 product install on 2 servers

    719198
      My company is installing the planning plus package version 11.1.1.3.0.

      We have 2 32-bit windows servers allocated for this, one of them has sql server installed. I am looking for some recommendations on how best to split up the components on the 2 different servers. There is enough memory, etc, per product pre-requisites.

      Should weblogic be installed first before installing the foundation?

      Thanks in advance.

          Before you do any installation, you really should have a senior infrastructure resource review and recommend hardware. These products are very complicated to install. The question below is most likely just the 'tip of the iceberg' of issues you will have. Once you've doen this you should have your answer.

              Hello,

              The answer to your question is YES. You need to install BEA Weblogic first then the Hyperion Product.

              Hope this helps.

                I am assuming you are installing the following:

                1. SQL Server 2005 (DB)
                2. Weblogic
                3. Hyperion Shared Service
                4. Hyperion EPMA
                5. Calculation Manager
                6. Essbase
                7. Hyperion Planning
                8. Workspace

                My recommendation is

                Server A
                SQL Server 2005 (DB)
                Weblogic (to deploy HSS, Weblogic has no issue with 11.1.3)
                Hyperion Shared Service
                Hyperion EPMA
                Calculation Manager


                Server B
                Weblogic (Planning & Workspace)
                Essbase (EAS will use tomcat)
                Hyperion Planning
                Workspace

                You have to install Weblogic first if you want to deploy the application by the installer itself automatically into weblogic.

                  Thanks Tony and Thank you!! Rupak!

                  Here's what we have.

                  1. SQL Server 2005 (DB)
                  2. Weblogic
                  3. Hyperion Shared Service
                  4. Essbase
                  5. Hyperion Planning
                  6. Workspace
                  *7. Financial Reports*
                  *8. WebAnalysis*

                  Can we not install weblogic and use apache instead? It's only dev and very few users. Do you see any issues with this? Can we install EPMA and calc manager later? They are not essential at this point, we don't need them, just looking for a simple install.

                  Server A
                  SQL Server 2005 (DB)
                  Hyperion Shared Service

                  Server B
                  Essbase (EAS will use tomcat)
                  Hyperion Planning
                  Workspace
                  Reports and Web Analysis


                  Also read that in a distributed environment you need to configure shared services on both servers, is that correct?
                  Lastly, is it really a big deal if in dev I just use 1 db for all the schemas instead of an individual db for each?

                  Thanks again.

                    No problem. You can use apache for your dev environment.

                    Also, you can install and config EPMA and Calc Manager later. But keep in mind that can only create "Classic" HFM and Planning applications without EPMA.

                      Thanks Tony!

                      I just want a simple Planning and Essbase scenario, so classic will be fine. No HFM. Thx

                        Hi Tony,

                        I am installing Hyperion 11.1.1.3.0 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.3. I am installing web application tier, 2 Services tiers.

                        On web application Tier:
                        Components :
                        Apache Http server
                        Weblogic 9.2MP4

                        Foundation Services: HSS,EPM Workspace,CM, Planning web application, Administration services web application,calculation manager web application, FDM Web application(IIS), ERP intergrator Web Application.

                        On Services Tier:
                        Essbase Server

                        Another Services Tier:
                        FDM server

                        I have installed the Webapplication tier and Essbase services tier on linux.

                        Now i need to configure it. I have some idea how to configure it.
                        1) run the command ./configTool.sh
                        2) Enter the database schema values.
                        3) Then it ask for the deployment of Weblogic rite.
                        4) then It asks for the webserver rite

                        Can u give me a detail configuration steps involved. Do i need to install Apache Http Server or does it comes as a default i can see the Apache directory there in the hyperion home.

                        Can u please provide me a guide how to configure in Linux.

                        Thanks
