Before reading further, you need to first review my earlier post FDMEE 184.108.40.206 Multiple Problems - Buggy Release - Part 1
Clarification: this post is about the Linux edition only. The Windows edition does not have these issues.
Without a complete FDMEE database schema, which the post linked above walks you through, your Oracle EPM / Hyperion FDMEE 220.127.116.11 implementation will be doomed.
Now, sadly, we have to dive into Oracle WebLogic 12c. You will need to launch the WebLogic Admin Console so you may follow along.
First problem: nothing is targeted to FDMEE ("ErpIntegrator" in WebLogic's lingo)....
It gets worse. A critical deployment is missing. Can you see which one?
Answer: The deployment named "AIF" is missing, and it ought to be targeted to the ERPIntegrator cluster. Other targets are missing as well. Here's how it ought to look:
You can fix this manually within the Admin Console, or you can shut down the Admin Server and edit WebLogic's config.xml by hand. To do it within the user interface, you would do a Lock & Edit, add deployment and pick aif.ear from within Middleware/EPMSystem11R1/products/FinancialDataQuality/AppServer/InstallableApps. But wait, there's more! You may want to shut down AdminServer and paste this text to config.xml
Replace /Oracle above with the Linux path from / leading to Middleware.
We're not done yet. Restart the Admin Server, go to Deployments->aif->Testing:
This is what it ought to look like:
Go back to Deployments and put a checkbox where I've highlighted below, and change the page size from 10 entries to 1000.
Here is just a brief snippet of what's wrong. Many libraries have not been targeted to ERPIntegrator.
The fix here is you need to do another Lock & Edit, and target the ERPIntegrator cluster for many libraries. There are too many to list. If you want to see the gory details, I have posted my modified WebLogic config.xml
Honestly, we need a patch for FDMEE and also possibly the EPM Configurator tool. No one should have to go through all of the steps I did!
As EPM 18.104.22.168 is very new, these types of things are bound to happen. If you have an implementation project on the horizon for EPM 22.214.171.124, ensure your Project Manager bakes in enough time in the project timeline for opening SRs and waiting for patches to be issued.
I hope this post helps unravel the mystery!
Hello Dave, is it required fdmee need to install on foundation server in distributed env? We have fdmee and foundation different servers deployed to same domain. What we have observed even though credmap storing credentials it's simply keep giving missing supervisor credentials always.we have tried to update using wlst and em still same issue appears .odi connection from fdmee is side fine ,odiagent working fine. Whenever we do import table definition or reverse engg it's keep give odi supervisor credentials missing in credmap store.also strange thing observed odiagent folder or logs not creating on fdmee .ReplyDelete
Hi Dinesh, in a distributed environment you traditionally must install all web applications on the Foundation server, even if they will be deployed on other servers within the domain. This is an Oracle WebLogic requirement. If you're not using Tax, Financial Close, or other modules on any server, then you don't need to install them on the Foundation server.Delete
You'll know for sure this is the case when you scroll through AdminServer.log on your Foundation server. If you see FileNotFound in a Java stack trace, that's your clue.
So install FDMEE on your Foundation server, but you do not need to configure it there. The WebLogic Admin server just needs to see the aif.ear file.
In the case of a hybrid Windows+Linux environment, you will likely have 2 domains; one domain for the Windows-hosted web services, and another for the Linux ones. I haven't tried a hybrid setup in 11.2.x yet, so maybe this has changed.
