EPM Test Drive Deux
Since KSCOPE12 I’ve had some time to configure the Metavero 188.8.131.52 release and that’s what this post is about.
Do you want to get your feet wet with 184.108.40.206 however dread the long download time for the gigabytes of files or don’t have a server handy?
The word on the street is the major patch set PSU1 will come out sometime in the September time frame. Once that patch set is out I will be recommending this version for all.
Oracle allows for use of their software for evaluation and prototyping in non-production environments with minimal restrictions and one of the easiest ways to take advantage of this is a cloud environment.
I’ve put together a basic installation which includes most of the media downloads and the following products already deployed:
- Oracle Data Integrator
- Planning and Essbase
- Essbase Studio
- FDQM and ERPi
- EPMA and Calculation Manager
- Financial Reporting Studio and Print Server
You may kick the tires and also deploy some of the other products already there or download and install anything else!
NOTE: This AMI is in no way intended for any production purposes and using it for such is against Oracle licensing rules.
For those of you who are Amazon EC2 savvy I’ve installed and deployed several of the 220.127.116.11 products on the cloud; check out:
AMI: ami-ef933886 – epmtestdrive ii – Metavero 18.104.22.168 Hyperion EPM Test Drive; use m2.xlarge or m1.xlarge instances.
Windows: administrator, epmtestdrive
Shared Services: admin, epmtestdrive
Weblogic: epm_admin, epmtestdrive123
SQL Server: hypsql, hypsql
NOTE: Remember to setup your security group to allow RDP (3389) and be sure to shutdown your Amazon machine when you don’t use. $1.00 / hour is inexpensive however can add up. The image is set to shutdown at 1:00 central time each night just in case you forget. Edit the task to change the shutdown time.
