For you FDMEE pioneers on 18.104.22.168, Oracle has released patch set update (PSU) 530. You can download PSU 530 from My Oracle Support.
Unlike patch set update 520 released in the Fall, PSU 530 doesn’t appear to have any new features. Instead, the 22.214.171.124.530 is solely focused on bug fixes, and man, there are lots of them. According to the ReadMe, 47 defects are addressed by 530.
It’s good to see the Oracle EPM Product team addressing so many defects in this patch set update. Even though FDMEE 126.96.36.199 is out, Oracle is still committed to fine-tuning the first major release of FDMEE. This demonstrates Oracle’s commitment to those customers that took the maiden voyage on FDMEE 188.8.131.52.
I have a couple of clients that have been waiting on the 530 release to address some critical bugs. They will be happy to see the following bug fixes on the list.
- 20494577 – Improve Hyperion Financial Management check process performance.
- 19631188 – When using the SQL Server database, frequent database locks occur when multiple users access FDMEE at the same time.
- 19817853 – A Hyperion Financial Management adapter database connection error occurs when the MS SQL server is not using the default port 1433.
We’ll be testing 530 in our lab. Stay tuned for further information.
