Download Old EPM/Hyperion Binaries While You Still Can

Just thought I'd post a quick note about the following statement that was posted on the Oracle EPM Proactive Support blog today:

The following media packs will be removed from E-Delivery this week, as of the above reason.
  • Hyperion 9.3.1
  • Hyperion 9.2.1
  • Hyperion Pre-system 9
  • EPM
  • EPM

If you are still using one of these versions it might be a good idea to grab the installation packages  - just in case you need to reinstall any components in the future. Access to the removed media packs can be arranged later by contacting Oracle Support and asking to receive the archived software but it is a lot easier to have a local copy of the files in any case.

Update on October 4th:

Looks like the original statement was not an empty threat. The only pre-EPM 11.1.2 packages remaining on eDelivery (and on the Oracle Technology site) are the latest Hyperion Enterprise media files:

If you still need to install EPM 9.3.x or (for a staging server for example) you need to dig into your own stash of media files or follow the steps detailed in this Support document to request a separate download:
