About Essbase Administration Server

The middle tier Essbase Administration Server provides business logic to support cross-server operations, persistence of user preferences, and access to Essbase Servers. A system administrator creates users on Essbase Administration Server, and then Essbase Administration Server manages their connections to Essbase.

In Enterprise View, the node name for Essbase Administration Server is the same as the server computer name.

Essbase Administration Server has several configurable communication ports, which are different from Essbase Server ports. If one of the default communication ports is in use by another application, you must specify another port value in order to run Essbase Administration Server.

Note:

If you change the value for the Essbase Administration Server port, you must specify the new port value when you log on to Administration Services Console.

  To change a default port value, see “Specifying Communication Ports for Administration Server” in the Oracle Essbase Administration Services Online Help.
