Oracle’s April Critical Patch Update includes two new entries specifically for Oracle EPM.  In this case the two products are Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Oracle Financial Reporting (FR) 11.1.2.4. 

According to Oracle none of the issues (there are three different ones detailed below) are remotely exploitable, and aren’t rated as high as some previous security issues.  Still, with all things security it is best to get them resolved as soon as possible.

Application of the patches for HFM is two-fold, requiring a patch to HFM as well as a general patch to ADF:

Application of the FR patch requires only one patch, depending on your version of FR (11.1.2.4 or the .900 build):

Should you need assistance applying these updates, please let the Managed Services team at iArch Solutions know, and we will be happy to assist.

When recently trying to deploy Essbase Studio, I ran into an issue where it would not create the Windows service because the password for the Windows Services install account contained one or more unacceptable characters.

Here are the steps I performed to work around this issue.

Start by re-launching the Configuration tool on the Essbase server.  This time be sure to choose “Configure Common Settings.”  Then click “Next.”

Pic1a

Deselect the “Run Windows Services as non-local system account” option. Then click “Next.”

Pic1

Now follow through the rest of the process of configuring Essbase Studio.  As you have already tried to configure Essbase Studio once, you will encounter the option to either “Drop and re-create Tables” or “Reuse existing database.”  I would choose to “Reuse the existing database.”  Click “OK” and then “Next.”

Pic2

Now continue with your configuration.  When you have completed the process, if you look at your deployed services, you will find that Essbase Studio has been deployed.  Please note, that it has configured to run as the “local system” account.

Pic3

It is important to go back to you services screen now and change the Essbase Studio settings manually.  So, right click on Essbase Studio and click on “Properties.”

Pic8

Select the “Log on” tab.  Input the correct windows account information and select “Apply.”  When you go back to your services screen, you will find that the Essbase Studio Service is no longer a local system service.  It will now be the windows service account that you previously input.

Pic6

The next step is to run the configuration tool again, this time, only select “Configure Common Settings.”

Pic4

Select to “Run Windows Services as non-local system account.”  Input the right domainusername and Password.  Then click “Next.”

Pic5

And now finish the rest of the steps in the configuration process.
