In this blog let me cover installing EPM 188.8.131.52 in Windows 2012 (i was preparing a VM box for POC, thought to cover the installation as a blog hope it will help someone)
Installing Enterprise Performance Management 184.108.40.206
Have downloaded the needed as shown below for the installation of EPM 220.127.116.11 (I will be installing Essbase, Planning, R&A (FR),FDMEE & DRM) for the Windows 64 bit box.
Extracted the 6 zip files to a common location and calling the installer. Make sure its run as administrator.
Select the language as needed, here it will be English.
The Pre-requisite check is done by the installer and reports any issue if there are any.
I am leaving the defaults for the location of the Middleware
Since this is the first time install on this box, it does give me option only for the new install
Selected all the needed components as stated in the beginning
If the .NET framework is not already present will issue a warning and will install it as needed by the installer
All the selected components are shown and takes the confirmation for the installation.
The final summary page will show the status in GREEN if there is no issue encountered, if there are any issue it will reported along with the RED indication.
Configuring Enterprise Performance Management 18.104.22.168
Configuring Hyperion Foundation
After the successful installation invoking the configuration, leaving the defaults on the screen
As there is no other Foundation service is previously configured, selecting the 2nd option and enter the repository details, here its Oracle 12c database.
Tip: Make sure the Oracle database is enabled with the UTF-8 encoding, else you will get this warning.
Once the database connection is successfully established you will get the following screen for configuring the needed components. I did the selection only for the Foundation components, to demonstrate what are the components are part of the Hyperion Foundation.
Leaving the defaults,
Specify the Weblogic Domain details, if not configure a new one
I am not a fan of deploying all the component to a single managed server, so deselected the check box, so i get each managed server created for each component.
Selecting the Oracle HTTP (the default one shipped with the product) as the web server
The Summary page shows the component that will be configured
The configuration went smooth and gave the status in Green
The Following services are created by the configuration
After starting the web server and then the Foundation Service i can login to the Workspace module
The Following components are installed along with the Hyperion Foundation
- Oracle Hyperion Auditing
- Oracle Hyperion Common Administration
- Oracle Hyperion Common Security
- Oracle Hyperion Lifecycle Management
- Hyperion Common Install
- Oracle HTTP Server - 22.214.171.124

A single repository schema can be used to configure all the components, by selecting the check box on Product name
Following components will be configured
Summary page displayed once the configuration is completed
New Services are created after the configuration for Essbase,EAS,Planning&Provider service as below
Tip: Two OPMN for Essbase & OHS respectively
Ran the Web server configuration to configure the newly added components
Now can access Planning,EAS & Provider service
Configuring R&A,Calculation Manager & FDMEE
Selected the Calculation Manager, FDMEE & R&A components
Specify the repository details for the following componentsSpecify the file location for the RnA services
All the components are configured and the summary is shown
Re-ran the Web-server configuration

And all the components are visible once the web server is recycled.
You can validate all the components installed and configured so far by running the EPM system diagnostic
And the validation report is generated
That completes the installation & configuration of the Oracle EPM (Essbase, Planning, RnA & FDMEE)
