- Copy HFM applications between different 220.127.116.11 environments (both need to have minimum patch level of 18.104.22.168.100)
- Copy HFM applications from older release (11.1.2.x) to 22.214.171.124. The Upgrade Applications taks must be performed in EPM System Configurator afterwards.
The utility included in the PSE is the same old Windows program that has been bundled with HFM for ages. The only real change is that is has been fixed to correctly handle the APPNAME_CC_LOCK tables used by latest HFM versions.
Update 2016-05-01: The latest version of the utility (126.96.36.199.702) handles the HSX_DATASOURCES table correctly and removes the need to manually insert the name of the copied application into this table.
Please also note that this version of CopyApp requires the target database to be HFM patch level 188.8.131.52.100 or higher. I tested the utility by copying an application between two environments running HFM 184.108.40.206.101 and it did the job without any apparent hitches.
Note: When using this CopyApp version to copy HFM applications from an older release you still need to run EPM System Configurator to upgrade the application tables to the latest version!
Update: I recommend downloading HFM Patch Set Update 220.127.116.11.702 that includes the latest version of the utility . You don't necessarily need to apply the patch on an existing 18.104.22.168 environment because the executables can be extracted from the zip file and used independently. The path inside the patch archive is:
(and HfmCopyAppCmd_x64.exe for the command line version).
