Setting Environment Variables

Ensure that these environment variables are set correctly:

  • ARBORPATH (PC and UNIX)

  • ESSBASEPATH (PC and UNIX)

  • PATH (PC and UNIX)

  • LD_LIBRARY_PATH (UNIX only)

If Essbase is installed in the default location, use these variable settings:

  • Windows:

    PATH=C:/Hyperion/products/Essbase/EssbaseServer/bin
    ARBORPATH=C:/Hyperion/products/Essbase/EssbaseServer/app
    ESSBASEPATH=C:/Hyperion/products/Essbase/EssbaseServer
  • UNIX:

    path=/home/hyperion/products/essbase/essbaseserver/binARBORPATH=/home/hyperion/products/essbase/essbaseserver/appESSBASEPATH=/home/hyperion/products/essbase/essbaseserverLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ARBORPATH/bin:$ARBORPATH/dlls:$ARBORPATH/api/lib 
    arbormsgpath=/home/hyperion/essbase/bin
