Prior to starting the Reporting and Analysis Java web application server components on UNIX, set the DISPLAY environment variable to an available physical or virtual (Xvfb) graphics device address; for example:
DISPLAY=hostname:0.0 ; export DISPLAY
For the sake of convenience, it is recommended that DISPLAY be initialized automatically by editing the Reporting and Analysis Java web application server components start scripts.
You can set display for Financial Reporting by editing setCustomParamsFinancialReporting.bat|.sh in EPM_ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/deploymentScripts.
Only the Financial Reporting Java web application server component and Production Reporting require DISPLAY to be set. Production Reporting requires DISPLAY in order to generate charts using the New Graphics feature.
