  • Chapter 3. Oracle Essbase plug-in configuration

    An Oracle Essbase computing resource must be configured to use the OracleEssbase plug-in. This resource type represents an Oracle Essbase server.

    The following table shows the arguments for the configuration of the OracleEssbase computing resource.

    Table 1. Configuration of the Oracle Essbase computing resource

    Argument Description

    Agent The agent that runs all tasks that are related to this resource.

    Homedirectory

    The directory to use when processing tasks on this resource.

    Essbase ServerName

    The Essbase server name.

    Essbase UserName

    The Essbase user name that runs tasks.

    EssbasePassword

    The password of the Essbase user.

    Essbase ServerPath

    The Essbase server path to the BIN directory.

    Essbase JavaAPI Folder

    The location of the Essbase Java API jar files. The plug-in expects to findess_es_server.jar and ess_japi.jar in this folder.

    This argument is only required when you use the Export Data (J) task.

    OracleDiagnosticLogging(ODL) Folder

    Path of the Oracle Diagnostic Logging (ODL) folder. The plug-in looks forojdl.jar in this folder.

    This argument is only required when you use the Export Data (J) task thattargets Essbase 11.

    Attention: The plug-in uses the Essbase MaxL and ESSCMD command lineinterfaces. In order for the Task Pack to work properly, the user account that runsthe IBM Cognos Command Server agent on an Essbase server must be able to runMaxL and ESSCMD. To achieve this, you can include the local Windows account inthe Hyperion User group. If the agent does not use a valid Essbase user account,you might see the following error message when you try to run a task:

    Error initializing localization module

    If you receive this error, verify that the user account that is running the IBMCognos Command Center agent on an Essbase server has access to the Essbaseserver computer, and also can log on through the MaxL command line interface.

    If these conditions are not satisfied, then modify your environment to start the IBMCognos Command Center agent with a user account that has access to the Essbasecommand line interfaces.
