Configuring Task Manager and Application Manager


Task Manager installs a Windows service that runs scheduled tasks (FDM scripts) at specified intervals. Tasks can be scheduled to run repeatedly, daily, weekly, or monthly. The Application Server component enables the execution of resource-intensive tasks on a server other than the Web server, and thus can be used to limit database and file system access to a server behind a firewall (when the Web server is in front of the firewall).

In this topic, you assign the "Log on as a service " user permission to your administrator account. This user right is required for running scheduled tasks in Task Manager. You then configure the Task Manager and Application Manager components.

 

1.

Select Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy, and expand Local Policies > User Rights Assignment.

 

2.

In the right pane, double-click Log on as a service.


 

3.

In the "Log on as a service Properties" dialog box, perform these actions:

a. Verify that your admin account is listed, or click Add User or Group to add your admin account.
b. Click OK to close the "Log on as a service Properties" dialog box.
c. Select File > Exit to close the Local Security Policies window.
 

 

4.

Select Start > Programs > Oracle EPM System > Financial Data Quality Management > Task Manager> Task Manager Configuration.


 

5.

Enter the user name, password, and domain of the Windows account under which the Task Manager service and the FDM DCOM objects run.

Note: The Windows account must have full control permission for the FDM application folders that reside on the data server, as well as rights to the target system.

 


 

6.

On the Load Balance Server tab, enter the name of your load balance server. You can enter a backup load balance server as well.


 

7.

Select Start > Programs > Oracle EPM System > Financial Data Quality Management > Application Server > Application Server Config Manager.


 

8.

Enter the user name, password, and domain of the Windows account under which the application server DCOM objects run, and click OK.

Note: The Windows account must have full control permission on the FDM application folders that reside on the data server, as well as rights to the target system.

Configuring Load Balance Manager


Load Balance Manager enables you to balance the load on the FDM application servers and store the FDM application configuration. A common scenario is to install Load Balance Manager on a computer that is running the Application Server component.

In this topic, you configure Load Balance Manager by specifying the FDM application servers to use for load balancing.

1.

Select Start > Programs > Oracle EPM System > Financial Data Quality Management > Load Balance Manager > Load Balance Configuration.

 

2.

Enter the user name, password, and domain of the Windows account under which the Load Balance Manager DCOM objects run.

Note: The Windows account must have full control permission on the FDM application folders that reside on the data server, as well as rights to the target system.

 

3.

On the Application Servers tab, click Add, and enter the names of all servers that run the FDM Application Server component.

 

4.

On the Authentication Providers tab, click Add, and enter the name of the authentication provider that you will use in FDM.

The Authentication Provider dialog box is displayed.

Note: This screen enables you to add the following authentication providers: NTLM (NT LAN Manager), LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), MSAD (Microsoft Active Directory), VBSCRIPTSSO (Visual Basic script single sign-on), and VBSCRIPT (Visual Basic script). You can specify any combination of the five authentication providers. FDM attempts to authenticate users by using the authentication providers in the order in which they are listed, from top to bottom. You can click Move Up and Move Down to change the order. At least one enabled authentication provider is required.

 

5.

Enter the information for your authentication provider, and click OK.

Note: When you place the cursor over an information icon (to the right of each item), a description of the item is displayed.

 

6.

Confirm that your authentication provider is displayed, and click OK.

Note: Only accounts in the added URLs can access FDM. If no URLs are specified, the entire directory tree is searched.

Configuring Workbench


Workbench is a Windows client program that provides an administration and development environment. It enables you to perform common administrator tasks, such as creating locations, building import formats, and creating validation and logic groups. It also enables you to administer integration adapters, scripts, and reports.

In this topic, you configure Workbench by defining a Load Balance group.

1.

Select Start > Programs > Oracle EPM System > Financial Data Quality Management > Workbench > Workbench Client.

 

2.

In the Load Balance Server Group dialog box, click Add.

 

3.

Enter a group name and description, enter the name of your primary load balance server, and click OK.

Note: You can also add a backup server name.

A domain name, IP address, and server name are acceptable formats in which to designate the server. You can browse for a server by clicking  .

Installing and Configuring Financial Management Adapters


After you create an FDM application, you install and configure the Financial Management adapters. Financial Management adapters enable interaction between the FDM application and the Financial Management applications.

Adapters have two components—DLL/EXE and XML metadata. DLL/EXE files contain the system-specific instructions for interacting with target or source systems. XML files contain all data that relates to the current FDM application.

In this topic, you install the Financial Management adapters and create a connection to a Financial Management application.
