Better late than never. I got to install the new version of HP. Still not patched but that will be my next step. For now I got this:

In the installation I used: CentOS 5.11 and Oracle DB 12c.

Kernel info (you will be able to see it in the validation, later on as well):

The uninformed surprise (as I did not prep on the new things in the DB, this bit was much a surprise – both positive and negative one):

I was surprised how easy the Hyperion bit was. Install was pretty much as always Next, next, next…and the configuration, tho I did it in few iterations, was very simple and without any pain.

Validation (“Green…green everywhere”):

At this point I had to see a new application in the system…as seeing EAS empty made me a bit sad.

HCSample seemed a good idea. At this point I wanted to see LCM error, before all else. So imported CalcMng before just to see it error:

Sounds correct…I did try to trick you CalcMgr. Now importing “module” per module works. But did they somehow improve the import process? Almost…almost


…2min later. Did I configure FR even? Nop 😀

Okey. Lets try this again. Delete existing app and rules…just in case DS as well, so at least I know I started with a clean environment.

And ta-da:

After further check – still had to create a FR connections (5 in this case).
The FR book still does not work as expected.

On further note it all good looked in Planning (& FR), until I tried to look into CalcMgr.
Turns out only some parts got imported. Reimport on it’s own and much more artifacts are present now.

Last though on this point:
– As for now I would still NOT recommend importing the whole starter kit in one go…at least from this experience.
– I’m using 8Gb on my Virtual Machine, running DB and WebLogic and Hyperion and it’s not slow – so kudos*.
