only calculation Manager to design and
administer their business rules.

Preparing Web Application Servers.
Many EPM System products require a
Web application server. EPM
Workspace and the application being
integrated must be deployed to the
same Web application server type.
For example, if EPM Workspace is
deployed to Oracle WebLogic Server,
Performance Management Architect
must also be deployed to WebLogic
server.
Hyperion - Plann Hyperion Lover 51
ing, Essbase and
Preparing Web Application Servers
General Considerations
When deploying to an application server,
EPM System products cannot be installed to
directories with name that contain spaces.
For automatic deployment, the Web server
must reside on the same machine where
EPM Workspace will be deployed.
Set all Web applications to have a session
timeout that exceeds 10 minutes.

ing, Essbase and
Preparing Web Application Servers
Embedded Java Container
Oracle provides the Embedded Java
Container, which is provided on the
installation media for use with the
deployment of EPM System products.
For automatic deployment, the Web server
must reside on the same machine where
EPM Workspace will be deployed.
In this project I used Embedded Java
Container as our Web Application server.

Microsoft Internet Information
Services
Performance Management Architect service
requires IIS to be installed with ASP.NET
support enabled before configuration.
Ensure that the IIS services are running.
If .NET 2.0 Framework is not installed on
your machine, Oracle Hyperion Enterprise
Performance Management System Installer,
Fusion Edition automatically installs it for
you.
If.NET 2.0 is installed then it must be
registered and enabled with IIS.
Hyperion - Plann Hyperion Lover 54
ing, Essbase and
To enable .NET 2.0 on Windows
2003 machines
1. Open IIS Manager.
2. On the left pane, select Web Services Extensions.
3. If ASP.NET 2.0 is listed in the right pane, enable it by
ensuring that the Status column is set to Allowed.
4. If ASP.NET 2.0 is not listed in the right pane and
.NET 2.0 is installed, register .NET 2.0 with IIS:
a) From the command prompt, go to this directory:
c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\V2.0.50727
b) Enter aspnet_regiis.exe iru.

c) Repeat steps 1,2, and 3.

About the Shared Services Registry
The shared Services Registry is part of the database that
you configure for Shared Services. Created the first
time you configure EPM System products, the shared
Services Registry simplifies configuration by storing
and re-using the following information for most EPM
System products that you install:
1. Initial configuration values such as database settings
and deployment settings
2. The computer names, ports, servers, and urls you use
to implement multiple, integrated, Hyperion products
and components
3. Dependent service data.
