easy error tackling - new Error Message Guides in EPM 11.1.2.4

A lot has been done to make it easier for you to tackle errors in EPM.

With the release of version 11.1.2.4 we see a great number of Error Message Guides released for the various EPM products.
Some of these existed in earlier releases and have been updated, but a good number of them are new.
So if you hit an error on your product - it might be worth checking if there is a known solution/reason for it.

We recommend to download the guides and open with an installed PDF reader, as the Firefox online reader sometimes displays the PDF's as blank documents.

Installation:
Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Troubleshooting Guide

Hyperion Shared Services:
Oracle Hyperion Calculation Manager Error Message Guide
Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace Error Message Reference

Essbase:

Reporting:

Financial Applications:

Oracle Financial Management Analytics Error Message Guide

Oracle Hyperion Strategic Finance Error Message Guide
Oracle Hyperion Tax Governance Error Message Reference Guide


Most (if not all) are also available in HTML, ePub and mobi Format for download via the
EPM 11.1.2.4 Documentation

And just because I know that you would ask for it if it was not included
- here is the latest compatibility matrix (XLS) Compatibility Matrix

Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy

(in via Susan)

Oracle recently published the Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy.  This document describes how Oracle delivers error correction (fixes) for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) in the form of Patch Sets, Patch Set Updates (PSU) and Patch Set Exceptions (PSE) for releases under Premier and Extended Support, and the grace periods for which prior Patch Sets and Patch Set Updates are eligible for correction.  The document complements the Lifetime Support and Technical Support Policies.   

For information on the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Error Correction Policy, visit the My Oracle Support articles:


Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Software Error Correction Policy
Doc ID 1617238.1

Oracle Enterprise Performance Management 11g Grace Periods for Error Correction
Doc ID 1590676.1


Understanding the Error Correction Policy and the related grace periods is important when planning a proactive maintenance strategy.  Within the lifecycle of a release, each version has a specific end of corrective maintenance as defined by the “grace period end date.”  Please note that the new policy supersedes and extends the grace periods specified at the end of the Hyperion tables in the Lifetime Support Policy.  

Additional information for Oracle Premier Support, including Oracle Technical Support Policies and Oracle Lifetime Support Policies, is availabe via:
