Refer to the readme of each PSU to determine the supported path of each one and confirm which existing releases it can be applied to.

Note: Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.013, Provider Services 11.1.2.4.014, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.014 are supported for use with Essbase 11.1.2.4.014.


RECOMMENDATION:

Oracle recommends using the same version of all Essbase portfolio products (Essbase, Essbase Administration Services, Hyperion Provider Services, and Essbase Studio) and components (server, client, runtime client, API, and JAPI). When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported.

After a patch is applied within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data.

README FILE:

Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's.

It is important to ensure that the requirements and support paths to this patch are met as outlined within the Readme file.

The Readme file is available from the Patches & Updates download screen for each of the Hyperion Essbase components.

        These PSU downloads are available from the My Oracle Support | Patches & Updates section.

        Hyperion Essbase Server 11.1.2.4.013

        Patch 24589660 : Essbase Server

        Hyperion Essbase Client 11.1.2.4.013

        Patch 24589678: Essbase RTC

        Patch 24589692: EAS Console MSI
        Hyperion Analytic Provider Services 11.1.2.4.013

        Patch 24009683 : Analytic Provider Services

        Refer to the readme of each PSU to determine the supported path of each one and confirm which existing releases it can be applied to.

        Note: Essbase Administration Services 11.1.2.4.013, Provider Services 11.1.2.4.013, and Essbase Studio 11.1.2.4.011 are supported for use with Essbase 11.1.2.4.013.

        RECOMMENDATION:

        Oracle recommends using the same version of all Essbase portfolio products (Essbase, Essbase Administration Services, Hyperion Provider Services, and Essbase Studio) and components (server, client, runtime client, API, and JAPI). When only some Essbase portfolio products are included in a patch release, the last released versions of the products that are not included in the patch are supported.

        After a patch is applied within the same release codeline, Oracle recommends as a best practice that you export the data from your databases, clear the data from the databases, and then reload the data.

        README FILE:

        Refer to the Readme files prior to proceeding with these PSU implementations for important information that includes the supported paths per component, along with a full list of the defects fixed, additional support information, prerequisites, details for applying patch and troubleshooting FAQ's.

        It is important to ensure that the requirements and support paths to this patch are met as outlined within the Readme file.

        The Readme file is available from the Patches & Updates download screen for each of the Hyperion Essbase components.
