The standard way proposed by Oracle to upgrade HFM from 18.104.22.168 to the last release 11.2.1 is to restoring the schema or database exported from release 22.214.171.124.xxx to the schema or database created for use with release 11.2.1 before configuring the newly installed environment. However, sometimes, it could be interesting to proceed in two times (first configuring the environment, and then upgrading):
- You did forgot to restore the source HFM schema or database before configuring.
- You want first test a fresh installation with a template HFM application before upgrading.
- You want to consolidate several HFM applications from different 126.96.36.199 instances in one 11.2.1 instance.
Use your old friend “Copy App” tool to copy the HFM application(s) from source 188.8.131.52 environment to 11.2.1:
HFM Application Upgrade
Locate the “HFM Application Upgrade” tool on your 11.2.1 environment and run it:
… that’s it!
