EPM Services Director
Recently I had to install Oracle Hyperion EPM 11.2.x for a customer using MS SQL Server as their relational repository. The Oracle Hyperion EPM installer package comes bundled with the option to install the Oracle Client. This customer didn’t need the client so there was no need to add the Oracle clients to the installed options.
The Oracle Wallet Manager is used to create SSL certificate requests and to import new certificates for Oracle HTTP Server. In previous versions of Oracle EPM, the EPM stack would also install the Oracle Wallet Manager for you by default. This is no longer the case in Oracle Hyperion EPM 11.2.x, the Wallet Manager only gets installed if you install the Oracle Client:
Lesson: always install the Oracle Client as part of the EPM stack, even if you don’t need it!
Fortunately, the Oracle client installer can be found in the unzipped EPM installation extracts: <Extract Location>\db64\Disk1
Run the setup.exe and your Oracle Wallet Manager will appear by magic. Happy SSLing!
Until next time.
