I was working on one of the project based on Hyperion EPM 188.8.131.52 and few days back i encountered an issue where the database configuration failed under the component Performance Management Architect.
When I was selecting Configure database for the Performance Management Architect i got a popup window which says “The Oracle Data Access Client is not Installed”
because of which configure database got failed under PMA
One component is required for the successful configuration of database i.e Oracle Data Provider(ODP) .net which is present under Oracle Database Client. You need to do the custom Installation of Oracle Database Client as this component is not installed by default. Also, the version of Oracle database client will be same as of the Oracle Database that you have installed on that server
