Patch available for 11.1.2.3 EAS web console bug with Java 7 update 45

Recently I posted a blog about an issue with 11.1.2.3 EAS web console and Java 7 update 45, if the update is applied then the web console is blank when opened and cannot be used.

I just noticed that there has been new patch set updates (11.1.2.3.003) released for Essbase related products which includes the following:

Patch 17609518: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ESSBASE ADMINISTRATION SERVICES SERVER 11.1.2.3.003

The one bug fix in the PSU is to address the Java issue:

17649604 - After Java 7 Update 45 has been updated, EAS console cannot start via Web Launcher.

I thought I would test out the patch and it has resolved the issue with the Java update.


The remaining Essbase related 11.1.2.3.003 patches are:

Patch 17609530: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ESSBASE RTC 11.1.2.3.003

Patch 17609535: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ESSBASE SERVER 11.1.2.3.003

Patch 17609493: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ANALYTIC PROVIDER SERVICES 11.1.2.3.003

Patch 17609497: PATCH SET UPDATE: HYPERION ESSBASE ADMIN SERVICES CONSOLE MSI 11.1.2.3.003


There are few interesting bug fixes for Essbase server:

17649547 - In some cases, after a dense restructure the size of the Essbase index files grows more than expected.

17649545 - During a dense restructure, the restructuring in some cases can fail and give the following error message: Corrupted Node Page in the B+tree.   [adIndPromoteSafeWrite] aborted


For Provider Services:

17275594 - In some cases, when retrieving with Smart View Client can result in getting an error: Binary Spreadsheet Table Token Error

John,

We have the same problem with 11.1.2.2 version. Can we apply this patch for this version?

Regards,
Ragav.

I wouldn't try applying a 11.1.2.3 patch on 11.1.2.2

I am not aware of a patch yet for 11.1.2.2 only a patch to allow Java 7.
