ODI Agents and EPM

Hello!
I use EPM 11.1.2.1.0, ODI 11g, Solaris SPARC
The situation is as follows:
On a single server X is installed Hyperion Essbase, on another server (Y) - the application server (Hyperion Planning, Shared Services, etc.), the third (Z) - ODI
In Oracle Data Integrator creates the following packages:
1) Load the actual values from the Oracle DWH to Hyperion Essbase and execution of business rules using the Hyperion Planning console utility - CalcMgrCmdLineLauncher.sh
2) Extract planning values from the Hyperion Essbase to Oracle DWH, using KM - LKM Hyperion Essbase Data to SQL, which is specified EXTRACTION_QUERY_FILE - report script Essbase.
My question is, do I need to install ODI agents on both servers: X and Y. On Y must be exactly as it is called a command line utility, located on the hyperion planning server. Be sure to install the agent on the server X, where Essbase. (called report script)
If I need the agents on both servers, I can somehow relate them so as not to break the existing chain of steps in the ODI package?

If it is the report script extract then it should still work even if there is no agent on the essbase server.
An agent will be required on the running the calc manager utility though.
Even if you did multiple agents you can generate a scenario for each step and call the scenarios from a package.
Cheers

  • ODI agent and Repository

    Hi,
    I would like to know what is exactly role of ODI agent and repository?
    If i am creating a new ODI environment using OLD one having slight chages at Target Database can i use same Agent for both th repositories?
    Thanks,
    Mahesh

    how would i create data servers and how can i use it?
    In ODI terms data server is the connection to one or many data store present under a connection.
    You need to create data server from Topology .
    You need to create a physical data server where you need to provide the physical connection info .
    You need to have a logical data serrver created which will connect to the physical dataserver via a given context .

  • ODI Agent and Virtual Servers (VMWare)

    Hi
    We are planning on moving to virtual servers (VMware product) in the near future.
    Has anyone had experience running ODI agent on a virtualised server. I can't envisage any problems, but Oracle do not specificallly support running on VM Ware (as they have their own VM product!!).
    Just wondering if theres anyone out there who has already tried this?
    Thanks for looking

    I agree, seen ODI and agents running on VMWare without any issues on many occasions.

    Hi
    Make sure that JDK 1.6.0_21 or higher version insatlled in your PC.
    Have you installed RCU 11g before ODI 11g installation.
    If not, please installed it and later start the ODI 11g installation.
    Open odiparams.bat/sh file.
    encode the master repository password using enocde.cmd/sh and paste the same encoded password on odiparams.bat/sh file
    check MASTER DB Crredentials/Master repository login credentials/ work repository details are properly setuped or not.
    check JDBC URL
    check ODI_JAVA_HOME path seted in your PC
    ODI_JAVA_HOME=d:\Oracle\Middleware\jdk160_21 in case weblogic installed before ODI 11g other wise
    ODI_JAVA_HOME=c:\Program files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin at Windows (setup it on environment variable) at linux export the ODI_JAVA_HOME path using "export" command
    run the ODI agent and check whether it is running or not.
    Hope this may helps you.

  • Create ODI Agent

    Hello,
    I am trying to create a new ODI agent and I can't find any simple set of steps to follow. Should I set up the physical and logical agents first? If I want it to be a scheduler agernt running as a windows service is there a different set of steps? I seem to have a collection of notes and documentation that give me bits and pieces of information but no concrete steps to follow. I know the odiparams.bat file needs to be updated as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Which version of ODI are you trying to set up and whis OS are you trying to install?

  • ERPI 11.1.2.4 and odi agent java ee

    HI, I have installed EPM system 11.1.2.4 now i want to set odi agent. In previous version i have to install odi and create agents but in this version i got a preinstalled ODI and precreated ODI agent. I have few queries related to odi agents:
    1 - if i want to use standalone agent i have to install another ODI and there i can created standalone agent? correct?
    2 - can i create standalone odi agent in already installed ODI by FDMEE?
    3 - When i start my EPM services, does my odi agent starts automatically or i have to start odi agent manually?
    Regards

    Hi JanGLi,
    1) Yes, if you want standalone agent you need to install ODI studio in that you will get the option for standalone agent.
    2) Yes, you can create standalone agent in already installed ODI by FDMEE and  FDMEE has given you the J2EE agent in there configuration.
    3) If the agent is J2EE then it has come by FDMEE so while starting the services for EPM for FDMEE the agent also starts(It depends how you have stated the properties of the services in the services.msc if it is automatically then while booting itself it will start else need to start manually.)
    AND
    If the agent is standalone you need to start manually bye going to that path(If you have configured the standalone agent).
    Thanks,
    Pratik

  • QUESTION:  Essbase data extraction and Installing ODI Agent??

    For extracting data from Essbase cubes, ODI has "LKM Hyperion Essbase DATA to SQL".
    We can use (1). ReportScript, or (2). MDX-query, or (3). CalcScript
    For data-extraction using CalcScript, ODI Agent must be running on the same server as the Essbase server.
    Does anyone know if there is a need for ODI Agent on the Essbase machine if we use MDX-query method for data-extraction?
    We would like to avoid installing ODI Agent for Essbase data-extraction.
    .

    Thanks John.
    One related question. To move data from one Essbase cube to another Essbase cube using ODI Interface, Can we do it efficiently through MDX-query?
    We want to avoid Replicated-partitioning OR CalcScripts, if possible.
    BTW... Your ODI/Hyperion blog is a bible for us.

  • Managing ODI Agent through OPMN - Install Issue

    Hi
    I am attempting to set up my ODI agent so that I can manage it through my OPMN service but I keep getting an error "java is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file" when I run the command "odi_opmn_addagent.bat agentcreate.properties".
    I have installed EPM 11.1.2.2 and my essbase service is currently managed through the OPMN.
    I have updated the odiparams, agentcreate.properties and odi_opmn_addagent.
    In the agentcreate file I set my JAVA_HOME to E:\Oracle\Middleware\jdk160_29
    Any ideas what could be wrong?
    Thanks

    Copy your jdk path as given below. Change it if you have different.
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_33\bin
    Right click on my computer->go to properties->advanced system setting->environmental variable->system variables
    Scroll down. you will get a variable names as "Path"
    Double click on it. then single click on variable value. Then press home key in your keybord. (better take backup of it)
    now pest above code that is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_33\bin;
    Give a semicolon at the end as i have given. Click ok,ok,ok

  • Connecting to MS SQL Server using ODI Agents

    I'll start with an apology, since I'm sure it's something very obvious that I've missed. Other posts have similar, but I think slightly different issues - but they have helped me get this far.
    We have ODI set up with two Agents (L and S running on Windows) which successfully connect to Oracle databases.
    I'm trying to connect to our first MS SQL Server database, and while a test through "Local (No Agent)" is successful, the connection is not successful when I try through one of the agents.
    This is true both when I test through Topology Manager on my laptop and when I use the ODI Topology Manager on the server running the agents themselves.
    In attempting to fix the problem, I have updated/checked as follows:
    Downloaded updated MS SQL Server drivers (I'm connecting to a MS SQL Server 2005 database). The new MS driver is version 3.0 and I've copied file sqljdbc4.jar to the ODI home drivers directory on both my laptop and on the server which runs the agents.
    Checked that we have a newer JRE installed - we have JRE 6 update 7 installed (1.6.0.17_b04) on the server which runs the agents.
    Updated the ODI_JAVA_HOME environmental variable so that it points to the jre6 directory on the server which runs the agents.
    Stopped and restarted the Agent services.
    Closed and reopened Topology Manager.
    Configured the SQL Server data server to use the following JDBC driver:
    com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
    Configured the JDBC url as follows (changing the hostname):
    jdbc:sqlserver://<hostname>:1433;selectMethod=cursor;integratedSecurity=false
    Tested using 'Local (No Agent)' successfully.
    Tested through an agent and received the following error:

    Thanks.

    After more investigation and even more chocolate, we've identified the problem and it's now working. For anyone else who strikes this problem in future, here's something to check/consider/try:
    Even though Squirrel SQL Client was connecting and working ok using the MS JDBC driver (v 3.0), it recorded this in its logs:
    Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS" and "Latin1_General_CI_AS" in the INTERSECT operation.
    We've found that the open source jTDS driver does not have the same issue as the Microsoft one.
    We've installed the current jTDS driver, recorded the driver name (net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver) and the JDBC URL (jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://<hostname>:1433/<database>) and the connection is now working fine.
    Hope this helps other people...
    Thanks to those of you who offered suggestions and things to check...much appreciated.

  • Diff between odi 10g and 11g

    Hi,
    Can some one reply the important and main differences between ODI 10 and 11g.Urgent!!!
    Thanks,

    quickly :
    * new user interface : ODI studio with new functionnalites (open object on tabs, save button, cancel button...)
    * new object : load plan
    * new agent architecture : JEE agent
    * integration with weblogic ; ODI console instead of Metadata Navigator
    * support of union/intersect/... in interfaces
    * news KM and index improvment
    * support of "derivated table" in yellow interface (ie : use sub request instead of creating the yellow table)
    * lookup functionnality for interface
    * simulation of code without executing the interface
    * support of tables partitions
    * global scope KM
    * best tool for export/import

    Hi,

    I ran the followiing the command line

    Anyone knows why its happening.

    Edited by: user6401072 on Jul 28, 2010 11:35 AM

    The reason is becuase you JDK path is some thing like this c:\program files\Java\jdk1.5.0_12\bin\java.exe'
    so what is the happening becuase of space between program and files its not picking up the correct JDK path .
    Either change the path of JDK installation or
    go to your odiparam path and go to this line
    if "%ODI_JAVA_HOME%" == "" set ODI_JAVA_HOME="c:\program files\Java\jdk1.5.0_12"
    or
    if "%ODI_JAVA_HOME%" == "" set ODI_JAVA_HOME='c:\program files\Java\jdk1.5.0_12'
    i dont remember exactly whether single or double quotes but try and let me know if that helps you

  • ODI Agent Test Start is Wrong

    if "%ODI_HOME%" == "" set ODI_HOME=..
    call "%ODI_HOME%\bin\odiparams.bat"
    echo OracleDI: Starting Scheduler Agent ...
    In your output you have :-
    The system cannot find the path specified.
    It is trying to call "%ODI_HOME%\bin\odiparams.bat
    and it can't find the file.
    Do you have an windows environment variable set for ODI_HOME
    If not create one and set its value to C:\ODI\oracledi
    or update it to the path above
    It should then find odiparams.bat

  • Do we need a ODI agent to be running for using the startscen command

    Do we need a ODI full installation(both server and client) for using the Startscen command or just the client install should be enough. And also do we need a ODI agent to be configured and running for using this StartScen command
    Thanks

    ODI client is an agent.
    So you don't need to declare one more if not needed on your infrastructure.
    But to run odistartscen you need to configure the odiparams.bat with your repository connexion.
    If not it will try to connect by default to the demo repostory on HSQL.
    best regards,
    Brice

  • If an internal ID is changed for the Work Repository how does it affect objects that are already in it?  Will they continue to run or do you need to cycle the ODI agent?

    I was having trouble migrating the Master and Work repositories from my QA to my Prod environment.  I was getting an error message that the internal id's were alike so I changed the internal id in my Prod Master repository.  Then I tried to migrate the Work repository and was getting a similar error.  I did a search on the internet for the error message and it recommended that I renumber the Work repository so I did.    My concern now is how these changes affect the objects that are already in the repositories?  Will those objects continue to run?  Also do these changes take affect immediately or do you need to cycle the ODI agent?

    Well I cannot completely assure you but so far I have not faced any issues after a renumber. It will affect the exist object only when you have imported the object in synonym_update mode. I believe you have the daily backup of your production repository.
