Why... Why... Why?
This blog is dedicated to documenting error resolution and other tidbits that I discover while working as a Consultant in the Oracle EPM (Hyperion) field. As much of my job revolves around issue resolution, I see an opportunity to supplement the typical troubleshooting avenues such as the Oracle Knowledgebase and Oracle Forums with more pinpointed information about specific errors as they are encountered. Beware, the information found in this blog is for informational purposes only and comes without any warranty or guarantee of accuracy.

Configuring the Financial Reporting Print Server in

The Print Service comes with the FR Client installation package on edelivery.oracle.com.

It is not installed automatically... Follow these instructions:

Configuring Financial Reporting Print Server

Financial Reporting Print Server is used to generate PDF reports. Before you configure Print
Server, ensure the following:
• At least one Planning server is configured and running
• Financial Reporting Studio is installed on a client host machine (CLIENTHOST1)
To configure Print Server:
1. Using the deployment account, log into the EPM System Clients host
2. Using a text editor, open C:\Program Files
3. Enter the following information:
AdminPassword=EPM Administrator’s password
4. Save and close FRSetupPrintServer.properties.
5. Run FRSetupPrintServer utility.
The print server should be ready to use after you run the FRSetupPrintServer utility.

There is a log file generated by this utility and you should check it to be sure it ran correctly. Also, in control panel-> printers on the Financial Reporting node you should see some virtual printers named FRPrint(1,2,3...). If there are no printers listed - the script is failing... Also check the windows services to ensure the FR print service is listed.
