Recreating the Oracle Process Manager Service in Windows
Posted on April 14, 2020

One of our clients, who is using Oracle EPM, recently upgraded their Operating System in their EPM environment servers to Windows Server 2012 R2. This caused the Oracle Process Manager Service, which controls the start and stop of Essbase Server, to disappear from the Windows Services panel. Apparently, this is a known issue when upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2 and a quick solution is to recreate the service by running the following Service Controller commands:

To create the service:
sc create OracleProcessManager_EPM_<epm_instance> binPath= “C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\opmn\bin\opmn.exe -S -I C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\<epm_instance>” DisplayName= “Oracle Process Manager (<epm_instance>)” start= auto

To add a description to the service:
sc description OracleProcessManager_EPM_<epm_instance> “OPMN service for Essbase”

Please note that, you would need to update the <epm_instance> name and directory paths, in the commands above, to match the environment you are working with. For example, your EPM Instance could be called “epmsystem2”.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding updates and upgrades to your Oracle EPM Systems, feel free to drop us a note here and we will be glad to help.
