How to Fix the Oracle EPM (Hyperion) Components Disabled in the 126.96.36.199 On-Premises Maintenance Ins
Oracle EPM (Hyperion) components Web Analysis and Interactive Reporting are not available for download as part of the EPM 188.8.131.52 install files from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud (commonly called the “e-delivery”) site. You probably know this, and don’t think it’s an issue as long as the two components are not going to be used in your EPM environment. However, it is an issue when you try to upgrade from 184.108.40.206.x to 220.127.116.11 with Web Analysis and Interactive Reporting installed.
During the 18.104.22.168 installation, when you select the products to be installed and click “Next,” an error window pops up with following message, “There are existent components that are disabled for maintenance install. Please, review the reasons why the components are disabled, resolve issues and retry maintenance install.”
Certain EPM components are installed and configured as part of the 22.214.171.124 install, but are not available as part of the 126.96.36.199 installation, and cause this issue. Web Analysis and Interactive Reporting are two such components which are not included with EPM 188.8.131.52 install files.
The solution is to update the “oracle.products” file under “…/Middleware/EPMSystem11R1/directory” and remove entries for Web Analysis and Interactive Reporting. Note that “oracle.products” is a hidden file and can be edited using the “vi.oracle.products” command in Linux or a text editor like Notepad in Windows. Then remove the following lines from the file and save the file on exit:
Once the “oracle.products” file has been updated to remove entries for Web Analysis and Interactive Reporting, relaunch the EPM installer. This time your installation should go through without a problem!
