Installation Updates

For complete installation instructions for Hyperion Application Link, see the Hyperion Application
Link Installation Guide for the release you are using.

To install this release of Planning Adapter:
1. If you are installing on a Windows system, stop the Hyperion Application Link Client
application and any integrations that are running.
3
Hyperion System 9 Planning Adapter Release 9.2 Readme
2. Download the Adapter zip file and save the file to a temporary directory. Unzip the files
contained in hpad92000_en.zip into the existing or new temporary directory. Be sure to
extract the files using the directories contained in the zip file.
3. To start the installation process, from the temporary directory;
•
For a Windows installation, double-click setup_vbis_win32.exe
•
For a Solaris installation, run setup_vbis_sol.bin
•
For an AIX installation, run setup_vbis_aix.bin
Note: Loading this utility may take several minutes.
For UNIX services: If the installer freezes when attempting to display the splash screen, and
then stops abruptly, you must set the environment variable NO_J2D_DGA to true.
You must use X Windows software to install VBIS Services on a UNIX
system. If X Windows is not present, the installer displays this error message and closes:
The installer is unable to run in graphical mode.
4. When the Welcome to Vignette V7 Business Integration Studio dialog box is
displayed, click Next.
5. In the Adapter Library Selection dialog box, select the Hyperion System 9 Planning
adapter library. Do one of the following:
If the status is displayed as Compatible, click Next.
If the status is displayed as Incompatible, cancel the installation and review the
installation log. For a Windows installation, the installation log is located in your <vbis
install dir>\vbis\logs directory. The log file name is vbis_install_<date –
timestamp>.log.
6. When the Install Preview dialog box is displayed, verify that Hyperion System 9
Planning adapter library is displayed in the list, then click Next.
7. When the Installation Summary dialog box is displayed, click Finish.
8. For the Hyperion Application Link Client installation, start the Hyperion Application Link
Client application and verify that the updated Planning Adapter 9.2 has been installed.
9. Rebuild and deploy any existing runtime targets.
Migration Considerations
•
Upgrade Planning applications before refreshing any existing Hyperion Application Link
integrations. See the Hyperion System 9 Planning Installation Guide for information on
upgrading Planning applications.

Known Issues
•
When you are using the Load dimension members functionality, performance is significantly
impacted if you do not connect to the parent port for the members. To improve this
performance, specify the parent members when loading data or updating dimension
members.
•
Unpredictable results might occur when you run an integration that contains records with
delete operations and select the 'Sort Parent Child' option. The relative order of delete and
update operation records may not be the same as in the unsorted integration file.
Defects Fixed in this Release
•
When working with an existing integration, you are incorrectly prompted to log in after
closing the Property page. Log in at the Login dialog box to proceed without errors.
Tips and Troubleshooting
This section contains tips for using Planning Adapter.
•
To remove a custom attribute value from an entity using Hyperion Application Link, pass the
following value to the attribute port:
<none>
You must include the brackets. The text within the brackets is case-insensitive.
•
Hyperion strongly recommends that you use the Connect method for logging onto Planning
applications. If your integrations use the Logon Method or supply logon information (Server,
Userid, and Password) directly to the Load Method, Hyperion recommends using the
Connect Method as the connection point for Planning Adapter integrations. The Logon
Method is available only for backward compatibility with existing Planning Adapter
integrations.
•
The following error message may be displayed when you try to connect to the Planning
server through Planning Adapter:
This error message is displayed when the “HyperionRMIRegistry” is not running. The RMI
Registry Service ensures that RMI registration occurs and is available for adapter and server
connectivity.
5
Hyperion System 9 Planning Adapter Release 9.2 Readme
To ensure the “HyperionRMIRegistry” is running:
On Windows systems:
1. From the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel > Administrative Tools
> Services.
2. Find the HyperionRMIRegistry and ensure that the status is Started.
3. If the status is Stopped, right-click HyperionRMIRegistry and select Start.
4. Log on to Planning Adapter.
On UNIX systems:
1. Ensure that the RMI port is listening by executing the following command:
netstat –a | grep 11333
The default value for the RMI port is 11333.
2. If the port is not listening, execute the command file called HyperionRMIRegistry,
located in the HYPERION_HOME/common/RMI directory.
3. Log on to Planning Adapter.
•
The following error message may be displayed when you try to connect to the Planning
server through Planning Adapter:
This error is displayed when the “HyperionRMIRegistry” is running, but the RMI port (its
default is 11333) has been registered by another application or the
HyperionRMI_Classpath.properties file does not contain the correct path to the
HspJS.jar file. Refer to the Planning Adapter online help topic, “RMI Considerations”.
•
When you try to save a Planning dimension member in Hyperion® System™ 9 Shared
Services™ or the Planning Adapter, if the member’s source plan type is not a valid plan type
of its parent member, you receive the error message, "The source plan type is not in the
subset of valid plan types." If the source plan type of a member is valid for the parent
member but not for the member itself, the member is saved but its source plan type is set
to the first valid plan type (in the order Plan 1, Plan 2, Plan 3, Wrkforce).
