Preparing your Middle and Database Tier for Hyperion EPM System Fusion Edition Installation

If you're planning to install and create a testing development for Planning, consider using a virtual machine for your Middle and Database Tier. It maybe easy for some to install the Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Fusion Edition, but for other, installation is taking forever. So, to help lessen your burden and to help you prevent from reformatting your personal computers over and over again, i suggest you use either VMWare or Microsoft's Virtual PC to host your Middle and Database Tier.

Below is a list of what I did to successfully install Hyperion on my Web Application and Database Server:
1. I created my virtual machine to host my Middle and Database Tier.
2. I then installed it with Windows 2003 with SP2 and IIS.
3. And then I installed it with MS SQL 2005. This will serve as my RDBMS.
4. I made sure that cookies and javascripting is enable on my IIS.
5. I made sure that .Net Framework 2.0 is installed on my PC.
6. I checked and made sure that .Net Framework 2.0 is an allowed web service extension on IIS. To do/check this option, go to your IIS Manager, click on the Web Service Extensions folder, select .Net Framework 2.0 Web Service Extension on the right side, and click on the Allow button if it's not yet clicked.
7. Login to MS SQL 2005 and create a new database and a new user with the system admin role.
8. Install the latest version of Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Fusion Edition. The version I installed was version
9. And configure each of the components by going to Foundation Services and clicking the EPM System Configuration icon. The wizard will easily help you configure all the Hyperion Fusion Edition tools and applications.

I will discuss about setting up the Hyperion Planning Client Tier on my next post
