Known Issues in Release 9.3.3.0.00


The following issues are the noteworthy known issues of this release:

Installation
If you use the Manage Equity Pickup feature of Financial Management, before you install Financial Management 9.3.3, you must install the Financial Management 9.3.1.3 patch. After you install the 9.3.1.3 patch, check that the following files are installed in the Ownership Management folder to enable you to use the Manage Equity Pickup feature: Drive

If you have previously installed Hyperion Essbase Server 9.3.3 on the same machine on which you are installing Financial Management 9.3.3, you may receive a Permission denied error due to some of the common files installed by both products being set to read-only mode. Before you apply the patch, execute the following steps to ensure that these files are not in read-only mode. (9477273) Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the the properties for that folder: folder and right click to bring up

1. Uncheck the Read Only checkbox. 2. Click on the Apply button. 3. Select the option to Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files.

Intercompany Reports
When you run several Intercompany reports, the process may be slow and you may receive a white screen. If this occurs, you can add a Windows registry setting to increase the number of concurrent threads allowed, which increases the number of reports that you can run simultaneously. To increase the number of concurrent threads: 1. Select Start, then Run, then in the Open box, type regedt32 and click OK.

10

2. Navigate to 3. Create the DWORD NumAsyncThreads and set a value which is the number of concurrent threads that you want to support. The recommended value is two times the number of CPUs on the Web server.

Microsoft SQL Server Databases


Financial Management does not support case-sensitive collation on the database instance (Defect 10401373)

Restricted Characters
For Financial Management text boxes in which you enter text, it is recommended that you avoid using text strings such as vbscript, vbx, javascript, jscript, <script> <textarea> and <pre>, and strings such as <X on X=X> where X=anystring.

Security
If you encounter an issue related to IIS Chunked Encoding Overflow, you need to verify the version of the Web Server for Financial Management and apply the corresponding security patch that Microsoft has provided to address those issues. (9278929)
