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.

HFM Support for Sqlnet Encryption

A while back I posted about an issue with HFM where the product cannot support an Oracle database using Sqlnet (Advanced) Encryption. This means all database traffic between the database and HFM is in clear text for anyone sniffing/capturing network packets. The basic issue is that the Merant ODBC driver needs a specific flag set to support encryption. HFM does not provide any option to set this flag for the ODBC connection.

Troubleshooting HFM on Windows

Looks like we have confirmation that a fix is coming in the HFM PSU. The rough ETA on this PSU is July.
