Understanding This Documentation
This documentation is designed to direct you through a basic PeopleSoft installation. It is not a substitute for the
database administration documentation provided by your relational database management system (RDBMS)
vendor, the network administration documentation provided by your network vendor, or the installation and
configuration documentation for additional software components that are used with PeopleSoft products.
This documentation is divided into two parts. The chapters in Part 1 include the information that is required to
complete a basic PeopleSoft installation. The chapters and appendices in Part 2 include information for less
common or optional tasks.
Required updates to this installation documentation are provided in the form of "Required for Install" incidents,
which are available on My Oracle Support. In addition, addenda to the recent PeopleTools installation guides are
periodically posted in My Oracle Support on the same page as the initial posting.
Instructions for installing Oracle's PeopleSoft PeopleTools are provided in PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation
guides. Application-specific installation instructions are provided in a separate document for the PeopleSoft
application. For instance, if you are installing Oracle's PeopleSoft Customer Relationship Management (CRM),
you need both the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation guide and the additional instructions provided for installing
PeopleSoft CRM.
To find the installation documentation for PeopleSoft PeopleTools or for your PeopleSoft application, go to My
Oracle Support and search for the installation guide for your product and release.
Note. Before proceeding with your installation, check My Oracle Support to ensure that you have the latest
version of this installation guide for the correct release of the PeopleSoft product that you are installing.

27
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
Warning! If you are unable to meet any of the criteria outlined in the hardware and software requirements and
certification information on My Oracle Support, contact Oracle before going forward with the installation.
Attempting to complete an installation on an unsupported configuration can be a very costly decision, and
Oracle will not provide support for such PeopleSoft installations.
Important! Before installing Oracle's Secure Enterprise Search (SES) we highly recommend that you review
our deployment and sizing recommendations provided in "Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Deployment
Considerations for PeopleSoft 9.2" (Document ID: 1684035.1) found on My Oracle Support. This article
provides information regarding the essential hardware for SES and information to help ensure capacity for
peak concurrent usage of your PeopleSoft 9.2 environment. Failing to follow these recommendations can
impact the performance and stability of your PeopleSoft 9.2 environment.
•
Use the My Oracle Support Certifications area to determine the latest certified versions of additional
components, such as Oracle Tuxedo or IBM WebSphere, which are supported for the PeopleSoft PeopleTools
release you are installing.
•
If you will be upgrading your current release after you perform this installation, you also need to install
Change Assistant. The page on My Oracle Support containing your upgrade documentation and files includes
information on which tool you need.
•
For critical issues related to the installation process, see the My Oracle Support web site. Be sure to read the
"Required for Installation or Upgrade" incidents on the Patches and Updates page for the PeopleSoft
PeopleTools version that you are installing.
•
For online technical support information, use the My Oracle Support web site. My Oracle Support includes
tools for self-directed searches of information including reference documents and problem resolutions, as well
as service request management tools.
See My Oracle Support, https://support.oracle.com.
•
To download software and documentation, use the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal, and the Oracle
Technology Network.
See Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, http://edelivery.oracle.com.
See Oracle Technology Network, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/index.html.
•
Be aware that not all application releases are certified and supported to run on all PeopleSoft PeopleTools
releases. Please check the PeopleSoft policy information in article ID 1348959.1 on My Oracle Support for
further details on the support policy for your particular application. If you are planning to do a PeopleToolsOnly upgrade, do not continue until you have verified that your application is supported on the target
PeopleSoft PeopleTools release.
•
This installation guide may refer you to other PeopleSoft documentation resources for more information or
instructions. You can access Oracle's PeopleSoft Hosted Documentation online during the installation process.
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 and later, you also have the option to install PeopleSoft Online Help
documentation, a dynamic, interactive, accessible HTML version of the documentation formerly known as
"PeopleBooks."
•
If you are using a Microsoft Windows or Linux operating system, Oracle recommends that you use the
PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture. The PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture consists of several deployment packages
(DPKs) that deliver pre-installed PeopleSoft components, which can be installed on virtualization platforms as
well as directly on traditional, non-virtual machines ("bare-metal") with Microsoft Windows or Linux
operating systems.
See Getting Started on PeopleSoft Installation, "Reviewing PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture."

"Installing PeopleSoft Change Assistant"
Task 1-1: Using Oracle Software Delivery Cloud to Obtain
Installation Files
Before beginning the installation, you should have obtained the PeopleSoft installation software by downloading
the necessary zip files from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal. Use the information available in the
PeopleSoft documentation and My Oracle Support Certifications to be sure that you obtain all the zip files
required for your environment.
See Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, http://edelivery.oracle.com.
In case you have not yet obtained the necessary files, this documentation includes sections on obtaining the files
at appropriate points during the installation process.
Note. If your PeopleSoft installation uses Oracle SOA Suite, note that the 32-bit versions of the Oracle SOA Suite
10g media components on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal are certified to run on the Linux x86-64 and
the Microsoft Windows 64-bit operating system platforms.
Task 1-2: Considering Project Planning
Identify the maintenance schedule for upcoming PeopleSoft PeopleTools and PeopleSoft application releases.
These releases are typically on a regular schedule (for example, quarterly, biannually) and should be included in
your project planning and budgeting processes. Maintenance schedules are posted on My Oracle Support. It is
important to plan regular maintenance in your overall project plans. For example, for a year-long enterprise
upgrade, development, and conversion project, make sure to set aside time for applying the PeopleSoft
PeopleTools minor releases that ship during that time frame. Otherwise, if you fall behind, you may find that you
need a fix shipped with one of the minor releases that cannot be backported as a patch.
Search for the term "maintenance schedules" on My Oracle Support. You can find schedules by year and quarter
for PeopleSoft PeopleTools and PeopleSoft applications. The schedules include lists of bundles and maintenance
packs for individual products.

Chapter 1
Note. For the sake of brevity, this documentation sometimes refers to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows as
DB2/LUW.
Note. Oracle supports a number of versions of UNIX and Linux in addition to Microsoft Windows for the
PeopleSoft installation. Throughout this book, there are references to operating systems. Where necessary, this
book refers to specific operating systems by name (for example, Oracle Solaris, IBM AIX, or Linux); however,
for simplicity the word UNIX is often used to refer to all UNIX-like operating systems, including Linux.
Understanding Workstations
This section discusses:
•
Using the PeopleTools Development Environment (Microsoft Windows-Based Clients)
•
Using Workstations Equipped with Supported Web Browsers
Note. With the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, Microsoft Windows-based clients are primarily used as a
development environment. End users can use any machine equipped with a supported web browser.
Using the PeopleTools Development Environment (Microsoft Windows-Based Clients)
Microsoft Windows-based clients are referred to as the PeopleTools Development Environment. These clients—
which run on supported Microsoft Windows platforms—can connect to the PeopleSoft database directly using
client connectivity software (a two-tier connection) or through a PeopleSoft application server (a three-tier
connection).
Three-tier connectivity offers great performance advantages over two-tier (especially over a WAN), reduces
network traffic, and generally does not require that you install database connectivity on the client. However, any
Microsoft Windows-based clients that will be running Data Mover scripts against the database, or running
COBOL or Structured Query Report (SQR) batch processes on the client, must have database connectivity
installed.
Note. COBOL is not needed for PeopleTools or for applications that contain no COBOL programs. Check My
Oracle Support for details about whether your application requires COBOL.
See Installing Supporting Applications.
You need to have the PeopleTools Development Environment set up to create your database. For more
information on setting up the PeopleTools Development Environment, refer to the product documentation for
PeopleSoft Configuration Manager.
See the PeopleTools: System and Server Administration product documentation for more information about using
PeopleSoft Configuration Manager.

Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
For installation purposes, you must set up at least one Microsoft Windows-based client for sign-on using a twotier connection to the database, so that it can create and populate the PeopleSoft database. This documentation
refers to this client as the install workstation. Depending on your installation plan, you may want to set up more
than one install workstation so that you can perform asynchronous installation tasks in parallel.
Note. The Microsoft Windows machine that you use to perform your PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation must be
running in 256-color mode or higher when running the PeopleSoft installation and database configuration on
Microsoft Windows. This is not necessary for UNIX or console mode.
Using Workstations Equipped with Supported Web Browsers
To run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, the client workstation only needs a web browser that is HTML
4.0 compliant. You may need an additional workstation for demonstration and testing purposes if you plan to use
a browser running on a platform other than Microsoft Windows—such as Macintosh or UNIX.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology.
See My Oracle Support, Certifications.
Understanding PeopleSoft Servers and Clients
You use the PeopleSoft Installer to install PeopleSoft servers and the PeopleTools Client. Here is a summary of
the functionality included in each server or client installation:
•
File Server
All Client executables (such as PeopleSoft Application Designer and Configuration Manager), PS/nVision,
Change Assistant, files and directories necessary to perform upgrade, and Client SQR.
See Defining the File Server
•
PeopleTools Client
All Client executables (such as PeopleSoft Application Designer and Configuration Manager), PS/nVision,
Change Assistant, Change Impact Analyzer, PeopleSoft Test Framework, PSEM Agent, and Client SQR.
See Defining the PeopleTools Client.
•
Application Server
PSADMIN and COBOL for remote call
•
Database Server
Scripts and data directories, files necessary to run Data Mover.
•
Process Scheduler Server
PSADMIN, COBOL, and SQR.
•
Web Server
The Web Server contains all the scripts file, Portal Search data files, and PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture (PIA) installation tools that can assist in setting up a web server domain. However, to run the
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, the client workstation only needs a web browser that is HTML 4.0
compliant.
Task 1-3-1: Defining the PeopleTools Client
The PeopleTools Client is the environment repository for the PeopleSoft PeopleTools Development environment.
The PeopleTools Client provides two-tier and three-tier connectivity to PeopleSoft applications.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
31
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
The PeopleSoft installer for the PeopleTools Client is included as part of the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation.
Keep in mind that the PeopleTools Client can be installed only on supported Microsoft Windows operating
systems.
Note. The client may be referred to as the PeopleTools Client, PT Client, or PeopleSoft Microsoft Windows client
in this documentation.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer," Installing the PeopleTools Client Files.
Task 1-3-2: Defining the File Server
The file server is the environment (or file) repository for the PeopleTools Development Environment, which is
needed for the Database Configuration Wizard. The file server is also the repository for the files necessary to
perform an upgrade. This includes Change Assistant and all of the executables and scripts that are necessary to
perform an upgrade. You will apply patches and updates from My Oracle Support directly to the file server and
then copy the updated files to your other servers. In addition, the file server is a source repository for COBOL and
SQR.
Important! Remember, a COBOL compiler is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools unless your application
contains COBOL programs. If your application requires COBOL and you are running on Microsoft Windows, we
require that you maintain a central repository of your COBOL source code on the Windows file server. See the
task Installing Supporting Applications later in this chapter for details on where you should install your COBOL
compiler.
If you follow the default procedures recommended in this documentation, the install workstations, Microsoft
Windows batch servers, and Microsoft Windows report servers will access the PeopleSoft files on the file server
by pointing to a directory referred to in this documentation as PS_HOME on a shared network drive. You can
install SQR on the file server, or install them locally on Microsoft Windows batch servers and on Microsoft
Windows-based clients that will be running these processes locally.
Setting up a file server is part of installations on both UNIX and Microsoft Windows environments. If you are
doing an installation only for UNIX computers, you need a Microsoft Windows file server. If you are working
only on Microsoft Windows, and you install the file server along with the other servers, you do not need to repeat
the file server setup.
If you need to set up the file server on a separate Microsoft Windows machine, you should install PeopleSoft
PeopleTools, any PeopleSoft applications, and the Multilanguage files.
In some cases you may choose to set up local copies of the PeopleSoft executables on the PeopleTools
Development Environment and Windows batch servers, rather than mapping to a shared directory on the file
server. You can use the instructions in the chapter "Using the PeopleSoft Installer" to perform such local
installations.
Task 1-3-3: Defining the Database Server
The servers that host your PeopleSoft databases need sufficient processing, storage, and networking resources to
process the database requests, store the data and transaction logs, and communicate freely to the clients of this
data. These databases will include your own PeopleSoft database prototypes as well as any system and
demonstration databases delivered directly from Oracle with the PeopleSoft installation media.
See Planning Database Creation.
32
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
Database sizes vary depending on the applications that you install. The size of your prototype PeopleSoft database
will also depend on the amount of data to be converted from your legacy system. A good rule of thumb for
estimating the size of your prototype PeopleSoft database is to estimate the amount of disk space needed for the
data to be converted from your legacy system, add to this the size required for the PeopleSoft System database,
and then add an additional 50 percent of this combined figure to allow for growth.
Task 1-3-4: Defining the Application Server
The application server is the centerpiece of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. It connects to the
PeopleSoft database and handles almost all SQL-intensive interactions with the database server required during
online transaction processing. Microsoft Windows-based clients, in three-tier, communicate with the application
server using Oracle Tuxedo messages. In the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, the application server
interacts with user workstations through a web server.
The application server also provides functionality required for application messaging and for implementing the
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. An application server is required in all PeopleSoft installations.
With DB2/LUW, you generally install the application server on the same machine as the database server, a
configuration called logical three-tier. You can also install application servers on one or more separate UNIX, or
Microsoft Windows machines. This configuration is called physical three-tier. (See the Certification area on My
Oracle Support for information on supported operating systems for PeopleSoft Application Servers.)
All application servers require database connectivity to the database server. Before beginning your installation,
make sure that you can connect from the application server machine to the database server using a SQL tool. This
topic will be addressed later in this chapter.
See Also
PeopleTools: Portal Technology
Task 1-3-5: Defining the Batch Server
The term batch server is equivalent to the term Process Scheduler server. PeopleSoft batch processes, such as
COBOL and SQR, are scheduled and invoked by a Process Scheduler server. In almost all configurations, batch
server SQR and COBOL files are located and executed on the same computer as the database server.
Note. If the batch server is located on a UNIX platform, the SQR and COBOL files must be transferred from the
file server to the database server, and COBOL source files must be compiled.
Oracle supports setting up the batch environments on a dedicated server, an application server, or even on the
database server.
For Windows-specific batch processes—such as nVision reports, Cube Builder, or Microsoft Word—you need to
set up a Windows batch environment on a Microsoft Windows application server or on a dedicated Microsoft
Windows workstation.
Any computer operating as a batch server must have database connectivity installed so that it can make a two-tier
connection to the PeopleSoft database.

Task 1-3-6: Defining Installation Locations
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Installation Locations
•
Defining PS_HOME
•
Defining PS_APP_HOME
•
Defining PS_CFG_HOME
•
Defining PS_CUST_HOME
•
Defining PIA_HOME
Understanding Installation Locations
As you proceed through the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation, you are asked to specify several installation
locations. Use the information in this section to choose how to specify the installation locations for the various
components in a PeopleSoft installation.
In addition to these installation locations, there are home directories for the various supporting software, such as
Oracle WebLogic, which are described in the appropriate chapters.
Defining PS_HOME
The PS_HOME directory holds the PeopleSoft PeopleTools files. The way that you specify the other installation
locations discussed in the following sections will determine whether other files are installed in PS_HOME or
elsewhere; for example, whether the PeopleSoft application files are installed into PS_HOME or into
PS_APP_HOME.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer."
For information on setting up PS_HOME as a read-only environment, see the PeopleTools: System and Server
Administration product documentation on securing PS_HOME and PS_CFG_HOME.
PS_HOME can be used in the following ways:
•
Multiple hosts can access PS_HOME on a shared (Microsoft Windows) or mounted (UNIX) location.
•
An administrator can do an installation where all PeopleTools, PeopleSoft application, and customized files
reside in the same location. That is, the paths for PS_HOME, PS_APP_HOME, and PS_CUST_HOME are the
same. The administrator can then copy and paste PS_HOME to different locations with no requirement to
duplicate the original file path. This scenario requires a PS_CFG_HOME location that is separate from
PS_HOME, PS_APP_HOME and PS_CUST_HOME.
•
Several Application Server, PIA, and Process Scheduler domains can use the same PS_HOME.
Defining PS_APP_HOME
The PS_APP_HOME location holds the PeopleSoft application files.
Depending upon the PeopleSoft application that you are installing, for PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 and later, the
directory where you install the PeopleSoft application files does not have to be the same as the location where you
install PeopleSoft PeopleTools, PS_HOME. You can select any writeable location on the file system. The
PS_APP_HOME location is sometimes referred to as "Application Home."
34
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
For details about whether this functionality is supported for your PeopleSoft application, and how it is used, see
the PeopleSoft application-specific installation guide.
If you choose to install the PeopleSoft application software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is different from
the PS_HOME location where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools, you will need to define a PS_APP_HOME
environmental variable.
For example, on Microsoft Windows:
1. Select Start, Control Panel, System on Microsoft Windows 7.
Click the Start button, then Control Panel, System and Security, System, on Microsoft Windows 8 or 2012 R2.
2. Select Advanced system settings.
3. On the System Properties dialog box, select Advanced, and click Environment Variables.
4. Add or modify the user variable PS_APP_HOME and specify its value. For example:
PS_APP_HOME=C:\HC9.2
On UNIX, specify the environment variable with a command such as this:
PS_APP_HOME=/data1/ora/HC9.2;export PS_APP_HOME
If your environment includes more than one PeopleSoft application, such as FSCM and HCM, you can install into
a separate PS_APP_HOME location for each. However, in this case, you must change the value of the
PS_APP_HOME environment variable for any configuration tasks.
For information on setting and working with the PS_APP_HOME environment variable, see the product
documentation PeopleTools: System and Server Administration, "Working with PS_APP_HOME."
See the chapters on installing and compiling COBOL in this documentation for further information.
Defining PS_CFG_HOME
The PS_CFG_HOME location holds the configuration files for the application server, batch server and search
server domains.
It also holds the configuration files for web server domains if PIA_HOME, defined in the next section, is equal to
PS_CFG_HOME. This location is sometimes referred to as "Config Home."
When you install PeopleSoft PeopleTools and the PeopleSoft application software, the PeopleSoft installer places
the required files into the specified PS_HOME directory. When you create an application server, batch server, or
search server domain, the configuration files associated with that domain are installed into a directory referred to
as PS_CFG_HOME.
By default, the system separates the binary files (executables and libraries) stored in PS_HOME from the ASCII
files (configuration and log files) associated with a domain stored in PS_CFG_HOME. This separation applies
only to these servers:
•
PeopleSoft Application Server
•
PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Server
•
PeopleSoft Search Server
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
35
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
When you use the PSADMIN utility, the system creates the PS_CFG_HOME directory based upon environment
variables associated with the current user. This table lists the user environment variable and default directory by
operating system:
Operating System
User Environment Variable
PS_CFG_HOME Default Location
UNIX
HOME
$HOME/psft/pt/<peopletools_version>
Microsoft Windows
USERPROFILE
%USERPROFILE%\psft\pt\
<peopletools_version>
For example, if USERPROFILE is C:\Documents and Settings\asmith and the PeopleTools version is 8.55, by
default PS_CFG_HOME would be C:\Documents and Settings\asmith\psft\pt\8.55. The configuration and log
files for the application server, process scheduler server, and search server are installed below this directory.
Note. The PS_CFG_HOME directory is associated with the PS_HOME from which it was originally generated.
This server domain configuration allows for a more flexible installation. You also have the opportunity to place
different security restrictions on the binary and configuration files. To take advantage of this flexibility, you have
the option to specify a different location by setting a PS_CFG_HOME environment variable. Before doing so,
however, see the PeopleTools: System and Server Administration product documentation for a more complete
explanation of working with PS_CFG_HOME.
Defining PS_CUST_HOME
The PS_CUST_HOME location holds customized file system objects.
Anything that is changed from the file system objects that are delivered with the PeopleSoft application
installation should be placed here. The sub-directory structure must mirror the PS_APP_HOME upon which it is
based. For example, when you install your PeopleSoft application, the directory structure includes SQR scripts in
PS_APP_HOME/sqr. If you have customized SQR scripts, you would place them in PS_CUST_HOME/sqr.
If a value is not assigned for the PS_CUST_HOME environment variable it assumes the default value of
PS_HOME. This location is sometimes referred to as "Cust Home."
For information on setting up and using PS_CUST_HOME, see the information on working with
PS_CUST_HOME in the product documentation PeopleTools: System and Server Administration.
Defining PIA_HOME
When you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, the files are installed in the PIA_HOME directory.
The PIA_HOME location holds the webserv directory, and the files for the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
installation. The directory where you install PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, PIA_HOME, does not have to
be the same as the location where you install PeopleSoft PeopleTools and the PeopleSoft application software,
PS_HOME. You have the option to specify the installation location for the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
by setting the environment variable PS_CFG_HOME.
See "Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in GUI Mode."
See "Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in Console Mode."
36
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
The PS_CFG_HOME directory is created the first time that the PSADMIN utility starts. PSADMIN recognizes
that PS_CFG_HOME is not present and creates it when necessary. This is done before any domains are created.
When you invoke PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, the installer checks your environment to determine the
PS_CFG_HOME. If the environment variable PS_CFG_HOME is defined, the PS_CFG_HOME location is seen
as the directory to which that environment variable points. If PS_CFG_HOME is not defined the default value is
used.
See the product documentation for using the %V Meta variable in PeopleTools: System and Server Administration
product documentation for more information about setting the PS_CFG_HOME environment variable.
Task 1-3-7: Defining the Web Server
A web server is required to run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. The PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture is certified to work with either of the following two J2EE web application servers (also commonly
referred to as web servers):
•
Oracle WebLogic Server
• IBM WebSphere Server
Refer to the Certifications page on My Oracle Support for supported web server combinations.
To find support information for the HTTP servers that can be used as reverse proxy servers (RPS), see the
following:
•
For Oracle WebLogic, see the Oracle WebLogic documentation, included with Oracle Fusion Middleware.
• For IBM WebSphere, see the information for PeopleSoft PeopleTools on My Oracle Support, Certifications.
Oracle WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, and the supported reverse proxy servers will provide out-of-the-box SSL
support across all supported operating systems. Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere provide demo digital
certificates, but for production grade SSL you must purchase digital certificates from a Certificate Authority
supported by the web server that you are using (for example, Verisign, Baltimore, Entrust, and so on).
Task 1-3-8: Using Oracle Configuration Manager
When you install PeopleSoft PeopleTools, you can configure the Oracle Configuration Manager. Oracle
Configuration Manager enables you to connect to My Oracle Support to upload your environment information to
an Oracle repository. When you enter your configuration information for the Oracle Configuration Manager
during the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation, the installer checks the Internet connection and associates the
current environment data with your My Oracle Support account. Oracle Configuration Manager offers the
following advantages:
•
Facilitates communication with Oracle Software Support
•
Improves access to the Oracle knowledge base
• Enables pro-active problem avoidance.
If you choose not to configure the Oracle Configuration Manager during the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation,
you can complete the configuration at a later date. If your system is already configured to use Oracle
Configuration Manager, the PeopleSoft installer does not display the screens for the configuration.
If you are installing on an IBM AIX operating system, and you configure Oracle Configuration Manager during
the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation, the installation will complete with errors. To set up Oracle Configuration
Manager on IBM AIX, download the latest Oracle Configuration Manager version from the Collector page on My
Oracle Support, and follow the instructions in the documentation on that page to install and configure it.

Task 1-4: Planning Database Creation
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Database Creation
•
Determining Databases and Database Names
•
Defining DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, and PeopleSoft Databases
Understanding Database Creation
When performing a PeopleSoft installation, you will create these types of PeopleSoft databases:
•
System (also called SYS) databases, which contain the PeopleSoft PeopleTools and product-specific metadata
required for development of a production database.
•
Demo (DMO) databases, which are populated with sample data for study, demonstration, or training purposes.
Task 1-4-1: Determining Databases and Database Names
Before you begin the installation process, you should determine how many PeopleSoft databases (System or
Demo) of which type you need and how you intend to use them. You should also determine the names of the
databases at this point, using database names that:
•
Are limited to eight characters, all UPPERCASE.
•
Capture information about the PeopleSoft product line and the type of database.
For example, you may want to create two databases with the names PSHRDMO and PSHRSYS, using the two
characters HR (for Human Resources) to indicate the product line.

Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
Task 1-4-2: Defining DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, and PeopleSoft
Databases
In this chapter we refer to both a DB2/LUW database and a PeopleSoft database. It is important to understand the
difference.
•
A DB2/LUW database is a set of SQL objects defined by one system catalog, using one instance of the
DB2/LUW server executables and associated files. A DB2/LUW instance may have several databases.
•
A PeopleSoft database is a set of SQL objects defined as having the same owner ID. These tables are always
within a single DB2/LUW database. A PeopleSoft database includes the PeopleSoft objects and application
data for one or more products in a PeopleSoft product line.
Each PeopleSoft database is created in a single DB2/LUW database. The database name is entered on the
PeopleSoft logon screen. A suggested database name might be PPF80DMO (for an EPM demo database).
Note. Your database server should have sufficient space for the demo database. If you plan on substantially
increasing the size of tables in your demo database, ensure that your file systems have ample space to
accommodate growth.
Note. Starting with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50, DB2/LUW installation (on supported UNIX operating systems,
and Microsoft Windows) should configure and use a 64-bit DB2 instance.
Task 1-5: Planning Multilingual Strategy
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Multilingual Issues
•
Choosing a Base Language
•
Selecting Additional Languages
•
Selecting a Database Character Set
Understanding Multilingual Issues
Before beginning your installation, you should determine which languages your PeopleSoft system will need to
support. If multiple languages are required, determine which language will be used most often. These decisions
will affect tasks at various stages of the installation, including file server setup, database creation, and the ability
to change the base language of the PeopleSoft database after it is created. Even if you do not plan on running your
system in more than one language, you should decide the following information before completing this task:
•
Database base language
•
Additional languages (if any)
• Database character set (Unicode recommended)
The current languages provided by Oracle and their language codes are listed in the following table, as well as the
corresponding database character sets for that language. These are the languages for which Oracle provides pretranslated products. If you plan to provide users access to your applications in these languages, Oracle
recommends that you install the translations during your initial installation. This approach will keep you from
having to perform an upgrade if you decide to add the Oracle-provided translations at a later date. After
installation, you also have the option of performing your own translations, and adding additional languages.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
39
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
In considering which languages to include, whether for pre-translated objects or for your own application
development, keep in mind that certain languages require a Unicode database. Oracle recommends Unicode
character sets rather than non-Unicode character sets, including Western European and Japanese Shift-JIS, for all
installations and upgrades regardless of the languages used.

Task 1-5-1: Choosing a Base Language
Each PeopleSoft database can have only one base language. PeopleSoft databases ship with English as the default
base language. Typically, the base language of your database should match the language most commonly used by
your organization, as it affects the performance of PeopleSoft applications.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
41
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
When PeopleSoft PeopleTools attempts to open language-sensitive objects (such as pages and menus), it first
compares the operator's preferred language to the base language of the database. If the preferred language matches
the base language, PeopleSoft PeopleTools immediately loads the required definition from the base language
PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables. However, if the user's preferred language differs from the database's base
language, PeopleSoft PeopleTools must first query the related language tables for the object. Should a translation
of the object not be found in the operator's preferred language, a query is then performed on the base language
tables. The following process flow illustrates the selection of the language used for language-sensitive objects,
beginning with the language selected when the user signs in to the PeopleSoft application:
Language selection process using the base language and the preferred language
While these queries typically occur very quickly, they still take up valuable processing time. To optimize
performance you can set the base language of your database as the language that is used most often by your users.
Another consideration is that because PeopleSoft databases are shipped with a base language of English,
maintenance is simpler if English remains the base language. Both configurations are supported by Oracle.

Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
Task 1-5-2: Selecting Additional Languages
Oracle provides translations of all end-user objects with the Global Multi-Language installation files. It is much
easier to install additional languages upon initial database creation than to add them later in your implementation
process, so we recommend that you choose which additional languages may be required now. There is no limit to
the number of languages that can coexist in a single PeopleSoft database; however, remember that each language
will require additional storage space, primarily for PeopleSoft PeopleTools objects.
Task 1-5-3: Selecting a Database Character Set
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Character Sets
•
Using Unicode Databases
Understanding Character Sets
Oracle recommends Unicode, but also supports non-Unicode (legacy) code sets, in PeopleSoft databases.
The following table lists a selection of the code sets, code pages, and languages that the PeopleSoft software
supports for DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows:
Code Set
Code Page
Languages Supported
1208
UTF-8
All languages
1252

Western European languages
ISO8859-1
819
Western European languages
ISO8859-15
923
Western European languages
See PeopleTools: Global Technology, "Selecting and Configuring Character Sets."
Using Unicode Databases
Unicode databases are required if the languages that you selected do not share the same character set. Typically, a
single character set can encode all languages written in a single script. For example, English, French, and Spanish
all share the same script (Latin), so they can coexist in a non-Unicode database. However, Japanese does not share
the same script as French, so if you need to have Japanese and French coexist in a single system, you need a
Unicode database.
If you decide to use Unicode for your database, you do not need to select a character set.

This section discusses:
•
Understanding the PeopleTools Only Upgrade
•
Reviewing the Upgrade Documentation
•
Shutting Down Servers
•
Reviewing Customized Configuration Files
Understanding the PeopleTools Only Upgrade
As part of a PeopleTools-only upgrade, you will need to use files included in the new PeopleSoft PeopleTools
release. For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.54 and later, you must install a separate PeopleTools codeline PS_HOME
that is different than your old release PS_HOME for use in performing the upgrade. When performing a
PeopleTools-only upgrade, prior to the installation of the new release codeline, you will need to perform the tasks
described in this section.
Task 1-6-1: Reviewing the Upgrade Documentation
Review Getting Started on Your PeopleTools Upgrade, located on the PeopleTools Upgrade Home Page for your
new PeopleSoft PeopleTools release. The installation of the new PeopleTools codeline is only part of the upgrade
process. After installing the PeopleTools codeline, you will apply the PeopleTools upgrade Change Package to
complete the database portion of the upgrade.

Task 1-6-2: Shutting Down Servers
Shut down any application servers, web servers, and Process Scheduler servers. Make sure that there are no
lingering domain processes from any Application Server domains. Such threads can interfere with successfully
installing new application server files. If there are any threads remaining after you shut down the domains, you
must manually remove them.
Note. For IBM AIX, run the slibclean utility as the root user to remove unused shared libraries from memory.
Task 1-6-3: Reviewing Customized Configuration Files
If you have any customized configuration files (such as psappsrv.cfg, psconfig.sh, pscbl.mak, psrun.mak, and so
on), organize and save them in order to have them ready for configuring your new release system. This enables
you to preserve any tuned variables. If after finishing the upgrade, you want to install and use a different
PS_HOME than the one used during the upgrade, then make sure that these customized configuration files are
available for use in configuring your new release system.

Task 1-8: Creating PeopleSoft User IDs
This section discusses:
•
Understanding PeopleSoft User ID Creation
•
Prerequisite
•
Creating UNIX User IDs
•
Creating Windows User IDs
Understanding PeopleSoft User ID Creation
In this task you will create the user IDs required for installation.
Note. The term user ID refers to the UNIX or Windows user name, not the UNIX or Windows user ID.
Prerequisite
The following procedure assumes the team member performing these steps has understanding of the tools
required to create the described UNIX and Microsoft Windows entities.
Task 1-8-1: Creating UNIX User IDs
This procedure lists required steps in the creation of the PeopleSoft-required UNIX User IDs.
To create UNIX IDs:
1. Create a UNIX group for the DB2/LUW instance owner.
46
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
This group ID will be the primary group of the UNIX ID for the DB2/LUW instance owner. The
recommended group ID name is db2adm1.
Note. Any UNIX ID that belongs to this group will inherit System Administration authority (SYSADM) for
the given DB2/LUW instance. Therefore, take extra care when you place a UNIX ID under this group.
2. Create a UNIX ID for the DB2/LUW for UNIX instance owner.
This ID will be used in the next task to create an instance. The group ID for this user should be the same as the
one created in the previous step. We suggest that you name this ID db2udbx, where the final x might be set to
d for development or p for production. IBM restrictions on names apply (for example, you cannot use names
beginning with SYS).
3. Create a UNIX ID for the PeopleSoft access ID/table owner ID.
The access ID, which is also known as the table owner ID, will be granted DBADM authority by the Data
Mover import script that will be run in the chapter concerning creating a database. The access ID and access
password must be tightly controlled. Both are encrypted in the PeopleSoft database. The access ID cannot be
more than eight characters long. The password for the access cannot be more than 30 characters long. The
group ID for this user can be the same as the one created in step 1 or a completely different group ID.
However, making this group ID the same as the one in step 1 will implicitly grant this UNIX ID the SYSADM
authority.
4. Create a UNIX ID for the PeopleSoft connect ID.
The connect ID will be used by PeopleSoft to connect to the database. The Data Mover script generated by
Database Setup grants this user minimal database privileges. Set the group, environment variables, and
permissions to enable this UNIX ID to access the DB2/LUW database. This ID cannot be more than eight
characters long. The password for the connect ID cannot be more than 30 characters long. The group ID for
user should not be the same as the one created in step 1. This UNIX ID should have minimal authority and no
SYSADM privilege.
5. Create another separate group ID and UNIX ID for the DB2/LUW Fenced User.
This fenced group ID and UNIX ID are to be used by DB2/LUW for fenced User Defined function (UDF) and
stored procedures. Although PeopleSoft does not use the fenced ID, the fenced ID is required for DB2/LUW
instance creation. The recommended group ID and username for this UNIX ID are db2fadm1 and db2fenc1
respectively.

Task 1-8-2: Creating Windows User IDs
This procedure lists required steps in the creation of the PeopleSoft-required Microsoft Windows user IDs.
To create Microsoft Windows IDs:
1. Create a USER ID for the DB2/LUW Instance Owner.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
47
Preparing for Installation
Chapter 1
Note. For Microsoft Windows, DB2/LUW requires that users have Administrative Authority on the Windows
machine to install the DB2/LUW for Windows. A DB2/LUW Administrator ID is required, which must have
Local Administrator authority to set up the DB2/LUW Catalog information and the ODBC Data Source
Administration. In addition, the DB2/LUW Administrator User ID has to be eight characters or less; as in
"db2admin." The password also must be eight characters or less.
2. Create a user ID for the PeopleSoft access ID/table owner ID.
The access ID, which is also known as the table owner ID, will be granted DBADM authority by the Data
Mover import script that will be run during database creation. The access ID and access password must be
tightly controlled. Both are encrypted in the PeopleSoft database.
3. Create a user ID for the PeopleSoft connect ID.
The connect ID will be used by PeopleSoft to connect to the database. The Data Mover script generated by
Database Setup grants this user minimal database privileges.
Note. You must limit the access ID and connect ID to eight characters or less, and the passwords for each to
30 characters or less.
Task 1-9: Installing the Database Engine
To install the database engine:
1. If you have not already done so, install the DB2/LUW database engine on your database server.
2. Create an instance if one does not already exist.
Create an instance of the database engine. On UNIX, the name of the instance matches the name of the user
ID corresponding to the DB2/LUW Instance Owner ID that you created in the previous task, such as
"db2udb1". On Microsoft Windows, the default instance name is DB2.
For connectivity between the DB2/LUW database and clients or utilities running on other systems, install a
supported version of DB2 Connect or DB2 Client.
Beginning with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53, the 64-bit version of DB2 Connect or DB2 Client is required on
Microsoft Windows.

Task 1-10: Configuring DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
for Remote Client Access
The following procedure outlines the steps to configure DB2/LUW for access by clients running on systems other
than the UNIX system hosting DB2.
To configure DB2/LUW for remote client access:
1. Set up the DB2 Communication Protocol.
48
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
Verify that the communication protocol for the DB2/LUW server is set to TCP/IP by typing the following
from the UNIX prompt:
/home/db2udb1 >db2set -all
[i] DB2COMM=tcpip
[g] DB2SYSTEM=rt-ibm08
[g] DB2ADMINSERVER=db2as
If the DB2COMM environment variable is not defined, define this variable by issuing:
db2set DB2COMM=tcpip
2. Include the DB2 Runtime Client Library Path.
Ensure that the environment variable for the runtime client library path is properly set for the UNIX or Linux
ID by editing the appropriate profile file to include ~sqllib/lib. The environment variable depends upon the
operating system, as described in this table:
Operating System
Environment Variable
IBM AIX
LIBPATH
HP-UX Itanium
LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Linux and Oracle Solaris
LD_LIBRARY_PATH
The profile file depends upon the UNIX shell you are using. These examples show how to set the LIBPATH
environment variable for an IBM AIX operating system. For other operating systems, use the correct
environment variable.
•
If the default shell for the UNIX ID is Bourne Shell or Korn Shell, add the following lines in the file
~/sqllib/db2profile:
LIBPATH=${LIBPATH}:${INSTHOME}/sqllib/lib
export LIBPATH
•
If the default shell is C Shell, add the following line in the file ~/sqllib/db2cshrc:
set LIBPATH=($LIBPATH ${INSTHOME}/sqllib/lib)
3. Edit the /etc/services file to add a service name entry pair for DB2/LUW.
On UNIX, the services file is under /etc/services. On Microsoft Windows, it is under
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc.
db2cdb2udb1 50000/tcp # DB2 UDB Runtime Client
db2idb2udb1 50001/tcp # DB2 UDB Runtime Client interrupt
The service names (db2cdb2udb1 and db2idb2udb1) are user-defined values. Additional suggestions include
db2udbp and db2udbpi, where "p" stands for "production." You must define a unique pair of service names
for each instance created per machine.
Port numbers (50000 and 50001 above) may be arbitrarily assigned. That is, you could use 50000 and 50001
or any other pair of sequential unassigned numbers greater than 1024. However, port numbers usually follow
installation or industry protocols, so consult with your network administrators.
4. Update Database Manager SVCENAME Parameter on the DB2/LUW Server.
To establish the service name that clients will use to communicate with DB2/LUW, issue the following
command using the DB2/LUW Command Line Processor:

db2 update dbm cfg using svcename db2cdb2udb1
Note. Although a port number and a service name were assigned for the Interrupt port (for example,
db2idb2udb1), it is never used.
To put the above changes into effect, you have to re-login and re-start the DB2/LUW database instance. Here
are the commands:
login db2udb1
db2stop
db2start
Task 1-11: Installing Supporting Applications
Oracle requires that a number of supporting applications be installed for the PeopleSoft installation on batch
servers and on any Windows-based client on which batch processes will be run locally. (Throughout the rest of
this section we refer to these Windows-based clients as two-tier clients.) Be sure to check My Oracle Support,
Certifications to ensure that you are installing software versions that are certified by Oracle.
COBOL
•
Consult the PeopleSoft information on My Oracle Support to verify whether your application requires
COBOL. Remember that COBOL is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools or for applications that do not
contain COBOL programs.
See PeopleSoft Enterprise Frequently Asked Questions about PeopleSoft and COBOL Compilers, My Oracle
Support, (search for the article name).
See PeopleSoft Enterprise Frequently Asked Questions about PeopleSoft and the IBM COBOL Compiler, My
Oracle Support, (search for the article name).
•
For PeopleSoft applications written in COBOL, install the appropriate version of the COBOL compiler on the
server where you will compile.
See "Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows."
See "Installing and Compiling COBOL on UNIX."
•
•
For UNIX servers, install Micro Focus Server Express or IBM Compiler for IBM AIX.
• For Microsoft Windows servers, install the appropriate version of Micro Focus Net Express.
If all your servers are on Microsoft Windows operating systems, Oracle recommends that you install a
COBOL compiler on the file server.
You can install PeopleSoft PeopleTools plus any patches on the file server, compile your COBOL there, and
then copy the COBOL binaries to your application and batch servers.
•
If your application and batch servers are on UNIX or Linux, we recommend that you designate a single server
as the compile server, so that you can compile COBOL from this central location and then distribute it to the
rest of your application and batch servers.
If you use this approach, you only need to copy patches or customizations over to the compile server. In this
case, you would install a COBOL compiler on the master (or compile) server and either the COBOL compiler
or runtime on the rest. You can also copy patches or customizations from the file server to all of your UNIX
servers and compile the COBOL on each machine.
Note that the compile server must have the same operating system as any destination application or batch
servers. For example, if your compile server is an IBM AIX machine, you can only copy COBOL compiled
there to other IBM AIX application and batch servers. Oracle recommends this approach. It will help you keep
50

Chapter 1
Preparing for Installation
your COBOL source code in sync and only requires that you install COBOL in a single location.
•
The format of COBOL source file names of patches or customizations on the file server should always be
UPPERCASE.cbl to ensure compatibility with your UNIX servers.
•
The PeopleSoft Installer installs COBOL source code from the installation directory to your Microsoft
Windows file server and to all UNIX servers, but not to the rest of your Microsoft Windows servers.
SQR
•
You must install SQR on any non-Windows batch server.
•
On Microsoft Windows batch servers and two-tier clients, you have the option of installing SQR locally, or
mapping to a copy installed on the file server.
•
Because SQR does not require any local registry settings, you can execute SQR from any Microsoft Windows
batch server or two-tier client once SQR has been installed to a shared directory. Installing SQR locally will
result in improved performance; over a slow network connection the improvement will be significant.
Microsoft Office
Install Microsoft Office (Excel and Word) on any Windows batch server or two-tier client that will be running
PS/nVision or Microsoft Word batch processes.
Microsoft Office must be installed locally, because it requires registry settings.

Task 1-12: Performing Backups
Before proceeding, you should back up all servers and workstations that are set up for installation so you can
recover to this point if necessary. Do the following:
•
Back up any changes you made to the database server in setting up your PeopleSoft system.
•
Back up any changes you made to your file server while setting aside space for your PeopleSoft system and
setting up access privileges.
•
Once you set up your install workstations to access the file server and database server simultaneously, back up
the workstations.
Task 1-13: Using PeopleSoft Change Assistant and PeopleSoft
Change Impact Analyzer
After you have completed the tasks in this book to install PeopleSoft PeopleTools, including installing any
necessary patches and fixes, you need to install PeopleSoft Change Assistant. PeopleSoft Change Assistant is a
standalone application that enables you to assemble and organize all of the steps necessary to apply patches and
fixes for maintenance updates.
PeopleSoft Change Assistant gathers all the necessary information for a maintenance update from the
Environment Management Hub and uploads it to My Oracle Support. With the environment data available, My
Oracle Support can determine what updates are applicable to your environment. PeopleSoft Change Assistant
carries out the following tasks:

Operating System, RDBMS, and Additional Component Patches Required for Installation PeopleTools, My
Oracle Support, (search for the article title and release number)
Reviewing Troubleshooting Tips
If you have trouble with the installation, review these tips:
•
It can require up to 800 MB space to install Oracle WebLogic. If there is not enough space, the installer
displays an error with information about the space limitation. You will need to exit the installation and create
some space under your home directory before starting over.
•
The Oracle WebLogic installer makes use of the default system temporary space. It will stop and display an
error message if the temporary space is not sufficient. Clean up the default system temp space and try again. If
you do not have the privilege to clean up that directory and need to proceed, the workaround is to set aside a
directory under your Home directory and use it as the temporary space. This can be achieved by setting Djava.io.tmpdir in the command for launching the installer.
The following command is a sample Linux command for silent mode installation, which uses the "temp"
directory under your Home directory. RESPONSE_DIR refers to the location of the silent mode response file,
and INVENTORY_DIR refers to the location of the Oracle inventory file.
See Installing Oracle WebLogic on Linux or UNIX in Silent Mode.
$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar -Djava.io.tmpdir=~/temp ./fmw_12.1.3.0.0_⇒
wls.jar -silent -responseFile RESPONSE_DIR/res.rsp -invPtrLoc INVENTORY_⇒
DIR/oraInst.loc
Note. This workaround may not be applicable on all platforms. If you tried and the installer still errors out due
to the amount of temporary space, contact your system administrator to clean up the system temporary space
before proceeding.
•
If the installation fails, and the Middleware Home directory that you specified for the Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3
installation is one in which other Oracle products have been installed in previous releases, (for example
c:\oracle folder in Microsoft Windows), it may indicate corruption in the registry.xml file inside your existing
Middleware Home. Pick a different location for the Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 installation directory and try the
installation again.
•
If you are installing onto an UNIX or Linux environment, in case of installation failure, refer to the log file
Wls1213Install.log under the installation logs directory to view the events that occurred.
•
If you encounter the following error message while running in console mode on a Microsoft Windows
operating system, it means an environment variable _JAVA_OPTIONS has been set in your system. It causes
the Java process initiated by the Oracle WebLogic installer to fail.
ERROR: JVMPI, an experimental interface, is no longer supported.
Please use the supported interface: the JVM Tool Interface (JVM TI).
To resolve the problem, remove the environment variable _JAVA_OPTIONS from your system and rerun the
installation.
•
If you encounter the following error message while installing on an Oracle Solaris operating system, it means
there is a problem with access to the temporary directory:
*sys-package-mgr*: can't write cache file
This message appears because the Oracle WebLogic installer creates a temporary directory (for example, on
Oracle Solaris it is /var/tmp/wlstTemp) that is shared by all users, and it is unable to differentiate between
54

Chapter 2
Installing Web Server Products
users. As a result, access to the directory is blocked when the user accessing the directory is not the one who
originally created the directory. The workaround for this problem is to remove the installation and install it
again after manually adjusting the temporary directory permissions. A user with superuser privileges can use
the following command to adjust the permissions:
chmod -R 777 /var/tmp/wlstTemp
For more information, search the Oracle documentation for Oracle WebLogic.
Task 2-1-1: Obtaining Oracle WebLogic Installation Files from Oracle

To install JDK for an Oracle WebLogic installation on Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit):
1. Go to the Oracle JDK download site:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
2. Download the Oracle Java 7 64-bit JDK version 1.7.0_51 or higher for Solaris SPARC.
Be sure to get both files needed for 64-bit JDK for Solaris. The JDK is mixed mode, and the second installer
enables the JDK to be run in 64-bit mode, which is triggered by the "-d64" parameter.
Refer to the installation instructions at the following link:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/solaris/solaris-jdk.html
3. Install the JDK on the computer where you will install the Oracle WebLogic server.

Task 2-1-3: Installing Oracle WebLogic on Microsoft Windows
The following procedure assumes that you saved the installation file fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar from Oracle
Software Delivery Cloud in the directory WLS_INSTALL. Installation in GUI mode is normally used for
Microsoft Windows operating systems. You should have installed the appropriate JDK to JAVA_HOME before
beginning this installation.
See Installing JDK for Oracle WebLogic.
Note. Previous releases of Oracle WebLogic Server, such as 9.2 MPX, and 10.3.X, can coexist with 12.1.3 on a
single machine. The best practice is to install Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3 into an empty directory, or at least one that
does not contain other Oracle WebLogic (previously BEA) products.
If you choose, however, to install this version of Oracle WebLogic in an existing WLS_HOME directory (for
example, c:\oracle), you must shut down all instances of Oracle WebLogic Server running in that WLS_HOME
before performing this installation.
To install Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.3:
1. Open a command prompt and change directory to WLS_INSTALL.
Note. If you are running on a Microsoft Windows operating system, you must run the command prompt as
administrator.
2. Set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to be the location where you installed the Oracle Java JDK 7.
For example, if you installed JDK to D:\jdk1.7.0_51 use this command:
set JAVA_HOME=D:\jdk1.7.0_51
3. Use the following command to launch the installer:
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -jar fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar
Note. It may take up to five minutes to extract the installer. You see system check messages. The Welcome
window appears when the extraction is complete.

before unzipping it into WLS_INSTALL.
2. Change directory to WLS_INSTALL and make the installer file executable using the following command:
chmod a+x fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar
3. In a shell window, change directory to WLS_INSTALL:
cd WLS_INSTALL
4. Set JAVA_HOME to be the location where you installed the JDK.
For example, if the JDK is installed under "/home/jdklnk7u51", use the following command:
export JAVA_HOME=/home/jdklnk7u51
5. If it does not exist, use a text editor, such as "vi", to create the central inventory location file, named
oraInst.loc, in a directory referred to in this documentation as INVENTORY_DIR.
The oraInst.loc file contains only the following two lines:
inventory_loc=/home/psftuser/oraInventory
inst_group=wlsgrp
The oraInst.loc file contains the following information:
•
inventory_loc — Specify the full path to the directory where you want the installer to create the inventory
directory. The location in the example is /home/psftuser/oraInventory.
•
oui_install_group — Specify the name of the group whose members have write permissions to this
directory. The group name in the example is wlsgrp.

Task 2-1-5: Configuring JDK for Daylight Savings Time Change
The version of JDK mentioned in the previous section Installing JDK for Oracle WebLogic includes the Daylight
Saving Time (DST) rules available at the time of packaging. If new rules are implemented after this time, you
should use the instructions in this section to update the time zone definition files.
You can skip this section unless a change to the DST rules has happened near or after the general availability date
of Oracle WebLogic or PeopleSoft PeopleTools. Consult the information on configuring PeopleSoft time zone
definitions in the PeopleTools: Global Technology product documentation.
This section provides an example of how the time zone updater utility (TZUPDATER), which is supplied by the
JDK vendors, can be used to update the time zone definition files contained in the JDK used by Oracle WebLogic
server.
1. Identify and shut down any JVM processes that are using the JDK that you will be updating.
2. For future reference or restoration, back up the location where the targeted JDK is located.
The JDK being used for different operating systems is different. For Oracle WebLogic 12.1.3.0.0, refer to the
commEnv.cmd (for Microsoft Windows), or commEnv.sh (for UNIX) file under WLS_HOME\
oracle_common\common\bin to determine the setting for JAVA_HOME and the exact name and location for
the JDK being used by your Oracle WebLogic server. WLS_HOME is the directory where Oracle WebLogic is
installed.
3. Download the appropriate updater utility for your operating system from the JDK vendor.
Each tzupdater provided by the vendor comes with instructions (typically in a readme file) describing how to:
•
Locate the correct JDK.
•
Apply classes using the tzupdater or provided scripts.
• Check tzupdater versions.
Read the instructions carefully as the steps and instructions are vendor-specific. Keep in mind that these
instructions and versions may be updated when the vendor finds it necessary.
Note. After successfully running the TZUPDATER to update a JDK location, the changes will take effect only for
newly started Java processes from that location. In the event that you did not identify and stop all Java processes
running from this location, it will be necessary to stop and restart these for the changes to take effect.

Prerequisites
IBM WebSphere ND is certified for PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 on the following operating systems:
•
IBM AIX
•
HP-UX Itanium
•
Linux
•
Microsoft Windows
• Oracle Solaris
The full lists of prerequisites for IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment 8.5.5.0 are available
on the IBM website:
See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24034969
In addition, review the following prerequisites before beginning your installation:
•
Both IBM WebSphere ND and PeopleSoft Pure Internet Application (PIA) need to be installed and deployed
using the same user ID. Following this requirement avoids security and profile management issues.
•
On Microsoft Windows operating systems, if you are not using the built-in administrator account to run the
commands, you will need stronger user account privileges to carry out the installation of IBM Installation
Manager.
To set the appropriate privileges, right-click the installer and select Run as administrator. Do the same thing
for the installation of IBM Installation Manager.
•
On UNIX platforms, the /var file system is used to store all the security logging information for the system.
Therefore it is critical that you maintain free space in /var for these operations.
•
When you carry out the GUI mode installation on UNIX, executing the installation wizard launches a GUI
window. You must run this command from an X-Windows client window (for example, Reflection-X).
•
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 supports the IBM HTTP Server (IHS) 8.5.5.0 that is bundled with the IBM
WebSphere 8.5.5.0 installation. Use of an external remote proxy server (RPS) is optional.

Reviewing Additional Components
Depending upon your PeopleSoft installation environment, you may need to install and configure software
components that are not included with the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation files, or which you acquire from
vendors other than Oracle. Some of the components that are discussed in this installation guide include:
•
Oracle Tuxedo
The installation of Oracle Tuxedo is required for a basic PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation, and is covered
in this chapter.
•
COBOL
COBOL is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools or for PeopleSoft Applications that contain no COBOL
programs. Check My Oracle Support for details about whether your application requires COBOL.
See "PeopleSoft Enterprise Frequently Asked Questions About PeopleSoft and COBOL Compilers," My
Oracle Support (search for article title).
See "PeopleSoft Enterprise Frequently Asked Questions About PeopleSoft and the IBM COBOL Compiler,"
My Oracle Support (search for article title).
The installation and configuration of Micro Focus and IBM COBOL compilers are covered in later chapters.
See "Installing and Configuring COBOL on UNIX."
See "Installing and Configuring COBOL on Windows."
•
Oracle Secure Enterprise Search
Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) is the search engine for the PeopleSoft Search Framework. The
integration of Oracle SES with PeopleSoft PeopleTools is covered in a later chapter.

Understanding Oracle Tuxedo
The PeopleSoft application server uses the Oracle® Fusion Middleware product, Oracle Tuxedo, to perform
transaction management, messaging, and administration. This task guides you through the installation of Oracle
Tuxedo on your server. It is essential that you install Oracle Tuxedo 64-bit, version 12c Release 2 (12.1.3.0),
which is available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. You need to install Oracle Tuxedo before you go any
further in setting up your application server and your PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. After you perform the
installation described here, you will configure the application server environment to incorporate Oracle Tuxedo
with the PeopleSoft components.
Oracle supports Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 (64-bit) for Linux or UNIX, and Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 (64bit) with MS Visual Studios 2012 for Microsoft Windows, with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55.
84
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 3
Installing Additional Components
The minimum patch level certified for running Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 is
RP037. These installation instructions include the installation of the base Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2, followed
by the patch installation.
Note. Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 for Linux operating systems supports Exalogic optimizations.
For PeopleSoft customers running on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, we strongly recommend the use of the
Exalogic OVM Template for PeopleSoft.
See Oracle's PeopleSoft Virtualization Products, My Oracle Support, Doc ID 1538142.1.
Note. For the sake of brevity and convenience, this documentation shortens "Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 (64bit)" to "Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2" and "Oracle Tuxedo 12c Release 2 (64-bit) with MS Visual Studios 2012" to
"Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2_VS2012."
If you have a previous version of Oracle Tuxedo installed, you need to install the new version of Oracle Tuxedo,
and re-create your application server domains. (You must create your domains using PSADMIN; you cannot
migrate existing domains.) You can also use the PSADMIN domain import utility.
You can install Oracle Tuxedo once for each release on a machine, regardless of the number of PeopleSoft
applications or databases the server supports. For example, if you installed Oracle Tuxedo 10gR3 for an earlier
release of your PeopleSoft application, you may install Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 on the same machine in a separate
directory. For example:
On Windows, you may install into C:\oracle\tuxedo10gR3_VS2008 and C:\oracle\tuxedo12.1.3.0.0_VS2012.
On UNIX, you may install into /home/oracle/tuxedo10gR3 and /home/oracle/tuxedo12cR2.
If more than one PeopleSoft application uses the same Oracle Tuxedo version (that is, the same patch level), then
it is recommended that you have a single installation of Oracle Tuxedo to serve all the supported PeopleSoft
applications. A single Oracle Tuxedo installation simplifies future maintenance (such as applying patches).
However, if you choose to have more than one Oracle Tuxedo installation (this scenario is possible only on UNIX
systems, as Oracle Tuxedo does not allow multiple installations of the same version of Oracle Tuxedo on
Microsoft Windows), you must install and maintain the same Oracle Tuxedo version more than once in different
directories.

Installing Additional Components
Chapter 3
•
For UNIX, you must have root access.
•
Enough free disk space on the application server to install the product.
The disk space requirements vary by operating system. For free disk space requirements, see the Oracle
Tuxedo documentation.
The Oracle Tuxedo installer uses the default system temporary space. If there is not enough space for installation,
it will stop with an error. To specify a different temporary directory on Microsoft Windows, use the following
command before starting the installer:
set IATEMPDIR=Complete_Path_Temp_Dir
Replace Complete_Path_Temp_Dir with the full path to the temporary directory that you want to use for the
installation.
If you are sure you have enough space, but the installer still gives an error about low disk space (this usually
happens on Linux), run the following command before starting the installer:
unset BLOCKSIZE
Debugging the Oracle Tuxedo Installer
If the Oracle Tuxedo installation fails with no error message, open a command prompt and enter the following
command:
set LAX_DEBUG=1
After entering this command, start the installer again. If you are using GUI mode on Microsoft Windows, you
must start the installer using the same command prompt.
Task 3-1-1: Obtaining the Oracle Tuxedo Installation Files from Oracle
Software Delivery Cloud
You can obtain the files needed to install Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 or 12cR2_VS2012 from the Oracle Software

Task 3-1-3: Removing Existing Oracle Tuxedo Installations from Microsoft
Windows (Optional)
You may already have prior versions of Oracle Tuxedo installed on your system from an earlier version of
PeopleSoft PeopleTools. If you are completely upgrading to PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 from an earlier version
of PeopleSoft PeopleTools, then you may uninstall the existing version and patches.
Note. It is not mandatory to uninstall the existing version of PeopleSoft PeopleTools, as Oracle Tuxedo
12cR2_VS2012 can coexist with prior versions on the same machine.
If you wish to use two versions of PeopleSoft PeopleTools that depend on different versions of Oracle Tuxedo,
you should read the section "Ensuring that Oracle Tuxedo Coexists with Earlier Versions" before continuing.
You may have to uninstall Oracle Tuxedo for these reasons:
•
You are having problems starting Oracle Tuxedo and decide to reinstall.
• You no longer need Oracle Tuxedo on a machine.
To uninstall Oracle Tuxedo from Microsoft Windows:
1. Using PSADMIN, shut down any application server, Process Scheduler, and Search server domains that may
be running on the machine.
2. Stop the processes for the Tuxedo Monitor and the Tuxedo Administrative Web Server (wlisten and tuxwsvr),
if applicable.
a. Right-click on the task bar and select Task Manager.
b. Highlight wlisten, and click the End Task button.
c. Highlight tuxwsvr and click the End Task button.
d. Exit Task Manager.
3. Stop and set the TListen VERSION service to manual, if applicable.
Replace VERSION with the version number for the existing service. For example, this would be TListen 9.1 or
TListen 10gR3.
a. Select Start, Settings, Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and double-click the Services
icon.
b. Select TListen VERSION and click the Stop button.
c. Choose the Startup Type and set to Manual.
4. Stop and set the ORACLE ProcMGR VERSION (or BEA ProcMGR VERSION for earlier releases) service to
manual.
a. Select Start, Settings, Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and double-click the Services
icon.
b. Select ORACLE ProcMGR VERSION and click the Stop button.

Installing Additional Components
5. Reboot your machine.
6. Uninstall Oracle Tuxedo in one of the following ways:
•
Using the Oracle Tuxedo VERSION installation CD provided by Oracle for PeopleSoft installations, open
a Command Window, navigate to the root of the CD, and enter pstuxinstall rmall. This will
remove Oracle Tuxedo VERSION plus any delivered Oracle Tuxedo patches from your system.
•
Using the Add/Remove Programs dialog, in sequence remove: Oracle TuxedoVERSION RP and then
Oracle Tuxedo VERSION.
7. Go to the Control Panel, double-click on the System icon, and then perform the following actions:
a. Make sure TUXDIR\bin is deleted from the PATH environment variable definition.
TUXDIR refers to the Oracle Tuxedo installation directory.
b. Delete the environment variable TUXDIR.
c. Make sure you click on Apply and OK to save your changes.
8. Using Explorer, delete the Tuxedo home directory, such as C:\bea\tuxedo8.1.
If you are unable to delete any files, reboot your machine and retry.
Task 3-1-4: Designating the Application Server Administrator on Microsoft
Windows
Before beginning the installation, you need to designate an existing user—or create a new user such as TUXADM
or some other account—to be the Application Server Administrator. The Application Server Administrator, not
the Windows Administrator, will install Oracle Tuxedo.
The designated user must be a local Microsoft Windows administrator and must have full system privileges. The
Oracle Tuxedo installation program creates a new service for Microsoft Windows—called ORACLE ProcMGR
V12.1.3.0.0_VS2012—for which you need administrator privileges. This service was developed to port Oracle
Tuxedo from UNIX to Microsoft Windows. Administrator rights are required since system registry settings are
updated. Once this new service is created, you must reboot to start it.
When you configure your application server domain in a read-only PS_HOME environment, the user ID
designated to be the Application Server Administrator must have read-only access to PS_HOME, read and write
access to PS_CFG_HOME, and read-only access to the Oracle Tuxedo installation directory, TUXDIR, (for
example, C:\oracle\tuxedo12.1.3.0.0_VS2012). Otherwise, in a scenario where <PS_CFG_HOME> =
<PS_HOME>, the Application Server Administrator must have read and write access to PS_HOME and readonly access to TUXDIR.
See "Configuring the Application Server on Windows."
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
To designate the Application Server Administrator:
1. Add the user ID by selecting Start, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Local Users and Groups.
Keep in mind that you can also use an existing account if you do not care to create a new one. You can set this
to the system account or an account that is a domain administrator (if there is a need to access files on the
domain).
2. Expand Local Users and Groups.
3. If the user ID does not yet exist, highlight the Users folder, and select Action, New User.
4. On the New User dialog box, specify the information for the new account.
Make sure to deselect the User must change password at next logon check box.

5. Expand the Groups folder.
6. Right-click the Administrators group, and select All Tasks, Add to Group, Add.
7. Click Locations to select the local machine or the network domain in which you created the new user.
8. Enter the new user name you created in the object names box.
9. Click OK, and click Apply and OK again to accept the changes.
Task 3-1-5: Installing Oracle Tuxedo on Microsoft Windows in GUI Mode
The following procedure assumes that you saved and extracted the installation files from Oracle Software
Delivery Cloud in the directory TUX_INSTALL. Installation in GUI mode is normally used for Microsoft
Windows operating systems.
Note. Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2_VS2012 can coexist on a machine with other versions of Oracle Tuxedo.
To install Oracle Tuxedo on Microsoft Windows:
1. Double-click TUX_INSTALL\Disk1\install\setup.exe to begin the installation process.

Task 3-1-7: Installing Oracle Tuxedo on Microsoft Windows in Silent Mode
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Silent Installation on Microsoft Windows
•
Running the Silent Mode Installation on Microsoft Windows
Understanding Silent Installation on Microsoft Windows
You can carry out a silent installation of Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2_VS2012 by providing all the required settings in a
response file. With silent installation there is little or no user interaction.
See Oracle Tuxedo documentation.
Use a text editor to create the response file and specify the values according to your installation requirements.
Here is a sample response file:
#
# .......... Silent Installation Properties file .........
#
RESPONSEFILE_VERSION=2.2.1.0.0
ORACLE_HOME="C:\oracle"
ORACLE_HOME_NAME="tuxedo1213_VS2012"

INSTALL_TYPE="Full Install"
ENABLE_TSAM_AGENT=false
LDAP_SUPPORT_SSL=false
INSTALL_SAMPLES=false
ENCRYPT_CHOICE=0
CONFIG_TLISTEN=false
Most of the entries are similar to those seen in the GUI installation. Note the following definitions:
•
ORACLE_HOME: The high level installation directory, for example C:\oracle.
The installer creates the Oracle Tuxedo installation directory, TUXDIR, as
ORACLE_HOME\tuxedo12.1.3.0.0_VS2012.
•
ORACLE_HOME_NAME: The name of the current Oracle installation, for example tuxedo1213_VS2012.
This identifies the Oracle Tuxedo installation in the Oracle Universal Installer, when reviewing the Installed
Products list.
Running the Silent Mode Installation on Microsoft Windows
The following procedure assumes that you saved and extracted the installation file from Oracle Software Delivery
Cloud in the directory TUX_INSTALL.
See Obtaining the Oracle Tuxedo Installation Files from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
To run the installer:
1. Create a response file as described in the previous section and copy it to TUX_INSTALL.
2. Open a command prompt and change directory to TUX_INSTALL\Disk1\install.
3. Run the installer.
•
If you specify an empty directory for ORACLE_HOME, use this command:
setup.exe -silent -responseFile response_file
Specify the full path to the response file. For example, if the response file name is response.rsp, and
TUX_INSTALL is D:\Temp, use this command:
setup.exe -silent -responseFile D:\Temp\response.rsp
•
If you specify an existing directory that is not empty for ORACLE_HOME, you must include the –force
option.
When you use the –force option with a non-empty ORACLE_HOME, you may see a warning message
recommending that you install to an empty directory or one that includes Operating System generated
files. You may close the message to continue the installation.
setup.exe -silent -responseFile D:\Temp\response.rsp -force
Note. If you do not include the –force option with an ORACLE_HOME directory that is not empty, the
installer will abort.
4. After you enter the commands in the previous steps, the installer is launched in silent mode, and a progress

Task 3-1-10: Checking the Windows Service Account
Use the information in this section to ensure that the Microsoft Windows services are properly configured. Oracle
recommends installing the application server binaries locally on your C drive, for best performance. The
procedure to set up the ORACLE ProcMGR V12.1.3.0.0_VS2012 service in the next section includes options for
the account type. Use the following guidelines to choose between the Local System account option and the This
Account option. (For the option This Account, you must specify a user ID and password.)
Note. For the sake of brevity and convenience, this documentation sometimes shortens "ORACLE ProcMGR
V12.1.3.0.0_VS2012" to "Oracle ProcMGR."

•
If you plan to install the PeopleSoft application server binaries (as in, psappsrv.exe and so on) on a remote file
server, you must select the This Account option.
•
If the PeopleSoft application server binaries are local, that is, they exist on your local hard drive, you can use
either the Local System account or This Account option.
•
If you intend to use this Microsoft Windows service to start Process Scheduler, you must always select the
This Account option. Enter the name of your Domain/Windows user name—not the machine name—and your
password.
•
If you are running on Microsoft Windows and are configuring a search index that resides on a mapped
network drive, you must ensure that the user ID of the Oracle ProcMGR service has access to network drives
accessed by the search engine. The search engine stores the search indexes at PS_HOME/data/search.
However, this path can be changed in the application or the Process Scheduler's configuration. If this path is
changed in these configurations and it points to a network drive, you must ensure that the user ID that starts
the Oracle ProcMGR service has access to these network drives. The application server and the Process
Scheduler are started by the Oracle ProcMGR service and therefore inherit the same permissions as the Oracle
ProcMGR service.

Task 3-1-11: Restricting Domain Process Privileges
This section discusses:
•
Understanding Domain Process Privileges
•
Setting TM_CPAU Environment Variable
Understanding Domain Process Privileges
For PeopleSoft systems, the Oracle ProcMGR service (tuxipc.exe) is responsible for starting Oracle Tuxedo
domain processes on Microsoft Windows. By default, domain processes run as the same user ID that the service is
running as. In a default installation, the service is configured to log on to Microsoft Windows as the Local System
user. Microsoft does not support assigning network privileges to the Local System user for security reasons, but
the Local System user otherwise has full administrative access to the local system.
In this configuration, PeopleSoft PeopleTools domain processes also run as the Local System user, which presents
several potential issues, including:
•
PeopleSoft PeopleTools domain processes are unable to access network resources.
•
PeopleSoft PeopleTools domain processes run with more privileges than are necessary. A compromised
PeopleSoft PeopleTools process will have full access to the local system and could potentially be used to gain
unauthorized access to the local system.
• All PeopleSoft PeopleTools domain processes on the system run as the same user ID.
These problems are not present on UNIX systems where domain processes are always started as the user that runs
tmadmin (by way of PSADMIN for PeopleSoft installations) to boot the domain. UNIX systems therefore support
multiple domains, each running under different user IDs, with only the desired local privileges, and with no
undesirable restrictions to network resources.

Installing Additional Components
Chapter 3
For Microsoft Windows platforms, you can use the Oracle Tuxedo TM_CPAU environment variable to achieve
behavior similar to UNIX systems. If TM_CPAU is set to YES before tuxipc is started, tuxipc creates an Oracle
Tuxedo process that belongs to the user who initiated tmboot. If the Oracle ProcMGR service (tuxipc.exe) is
started with the TM_CPAU=YES environment variable set, then domain processes will run as the user ID used to
run tmadmin (PSADMIN) to boot the domain.
Using the TM_CPAU environment variable enables a variety of configuration options, including:
•
The Oracle ProcMGR service can be run as the Local System user, but domain processes can be run using a
minimally privileged user. This reduces the chance of a compromised PeopleSoft PeopleTools process being
used to gain unauthorized access to the system. Note that the option "Allow services to interact with Desktop"
should not be selected.
•
The Oracle ProcMGR service can be configured to log on to Microsoft Windows using a minimally privileged
user ID and PeopleSoft PeopleTools processes can run as a user with more privileges than the Oracle Tuxedo
user ID. For example, the Oracle Tuxedo user ID could have read-only access to PS_CFG_HOME, but the
PeopleSoft PeopleTools user could have read-write access. The Oracle Tuxedo user ID does not actually
require read access to PS_HOME. When CreateProcessAsUser runs, access to the executable to start is
evaluated using the user ID that the process will run as.
•
A single Microsoft Windows system can be used to host multiple PeopleSoft PeopleTools installations that are
each administered by a different user. A non-administrative user ID used to boot one domain will have no
privileges to processes started with a different user ID.
• Domain processes can be identified and managed in Windows Task Manager by a non-administrative user.

Task 3-1-14: Removing Existing Oracle Tuxedo Installations from UNIX
(Optional)
You may have older versions of Oracle Tuxedo installed on your system from an earlier version of PeopleSoft
PeopleTools. If you are completely upgrading to PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 from an earlier version of
PeopleSoft PeopleTools and you do not require the older Oracle Tuxedo anymore, then, you may uninstall it.
Note. It is not mandatory to uninstall older Oracle Tuxedo versions from the machine where you are installing
Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2, as older Oracle Tuxedo versions and Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 can exist on the same machine.
You may have to remove your Oracle Tuxedo installation on UNIX for the following reasons:
•
You are having problems starting Oracle Tuxedo and decide to reinstall.
• You no longer need Oracle Tuxedo on a machine.
To remove Oracle Tuxedo from UNIX:
1. Using PSADMIN, shut down any application server, Process Scheduler, and Search server domains that may
be running on the machine.
2. Use the UNIX rm command to directly remove the Oracle Tuxedo installation.
Be sure to remove the directory containing Oracle Tuxedo, referred to here as TUXDIR.
3. Remove the TUXDIR environment variable and any entries containing your platform-specific LIBRARY
PATH and PATH environment variables.

Task 3-1-16: Designating the Oracle Tuxedo Owner on UNIX
A new or existing user must be designated as the Oracle Tuxedo owner.
Note. For Oracle Tuxedo 11gR1 and later releases, the application server can be booted only by the Oracle
Tuxedo owner or the group that the owner is in. The predefined UNIX "other" group does not have read or
execute permission. If it is required that members of the "other" group be able to boot and shut down an
application server domain, you must manually give read and execute permissions to all files and folders under the
TUXDIR/locale and TUXDIR/udataobj directories.
To designate the Oracle Tuxedo owner:
1. Log in as root.
2. Create the UNIX group and the user name of the individual who will be the owner of Oracle Tuxedo.
Using the values from the preinstallation checklist, create the group and specify the group name. Then create
the user who will be the Oracle Tuxedo owner, specifying the user name, group name, and home directory,
denoted by TUXDIR from the checklist.

Running the Silent Mode Installation on UNIX
The following procedure assumes that you saved and extracted the installation files from Oracle Software
Delivery Cloud in the directory TUX_INSTALL.
To install Oracle Tuxedo on UNIX or Linux:
1. If it does not exist, use a text editor, such as "vi", to create the central inventory location file, named
oraInst.loc, in a convenient directory.
If you have previously installed Oracle software on the system, the oraInst.loc file may already exist. The
oraInst.loc file contains only the following two lines:
inventory_loc=/home/psftuser/oraInventory
inst_group=ccpt
The oraInst.loc file contains the following information:
•
inventory_loc — Specify the full path to the directory where you want the installer to create the inventory
directory. The location in the example is /home/psftuser/oraInventory.
•
oui_install_group — Specify the name of the group whose members have write permissions to this
directory. The group name in the example is ccpt.
2. Create a response file as described in the previous section and copy it to TUX_INSTALL.
3. Open a command prompt and change directory to TUX_INSTALL/Disk1/install.
4. If this is the first time you are installing on your system (that is, there is no pre-existing Oracle inventory
location, and you had to create the oraInst.loc file in the first step), use the following command to perform a
silent installation:
./runInstaller -responseFile <complete_filename> -silent -invPtrLoc ⇒
<complete_inventory_filename>
Specify the full path and name for both the response file and the oraInst.loc file. For example:
./runInstaller -responseFile /home/temp/response.rsp -silent -invPtrLoc⇒
/home/psftuser/oraInventory/oraInst.loc
5. If you have previously installed an Oracle product on your system and do not need to specify an Oracle
inventory location, use the following command to perform a silent installation:
./runInstaller -responseFile <complete_filename> -silent
Specify the full path and name for both the response file. For example:
./runInstaller -responseFile /home/temp/response.rsp -silent
6. After you enter the commands in the previous steps, the installer is launched in silent mode, and a progress
indicator tracks the installation.
When the installation is complete, you should see a completion message such as "The installation of Oracle
Tuxedo was successful."
Task 3-1-18: Installing the Oracle Tuxedo Patch on UNIX

•
Checking Your Environment Variables
•
Changing the TListen Port
Understanding the Use of Multiple Oracle Tuxedo Versions
Earlier versions of PeopleSoft PeopleTools rely on earlier versions of Oracle Tuxedo—for example, PeopleSoft
PeopleTools 8.49 uses Oracle Tuxedo 9.1, and releases 8.44 to 8.48 use Oracle Tuxedo 8.1. If you are installing
only PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, you can safely skip this section. If you need to run application servers on
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 and earlier PeopleSoft PeopleTools versions on the same machine, read this section
to learn about coexistence issues. Although Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 coexists with earlier Oracle Tuxedo versions on
the same machine, you may need to take a number of manual steps to ensure that these products share the same
environment gracefully.
Checking Your Environment Variables
Installing Oracle Tuxedo changes your TUXDIR and PATH environment variables. Although you do not need to
change these environment variables to successfully run PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 with Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2,
earlier versions of PeopleSoft PeopleTools rely on these environment variables being set.
To change your environment variables manually:
1. Set your TUXDIR environment variable to reflect the installation directory of your earlier Oracle Tuxedo
release.
For example, Oracle Tuxedo 8.1 may be installed to C:\tux8.1. This means that TUXDIR=C:\tux8.1 is the
correct setting.
2. Your PATH environment variable must contain TUXDIR\bin for the earlier Oracle Tuxedo version before any
entries for TUXDIR\bin for Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2.

PATH=C:\winnt;C:\tux8.1\bin;C:\oracle\tuxedo12.1.3.0.0_VS2012\bin to work with pre-PeopleSoft
PeopleTools 8.49 domains.
Note. PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.44 and later do not use environment variables to discover the installation
location of Oracle Tuxedo 8.1 and later. The PSADMIN tool retrieves these values from the Microsoft
Windows registry.
3. Your library path on UNIX (whichever of the environment variables LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, or
SHLIB_PATH is appropriate for your platform) must contain TUXDIR/lib for the earlier Oracle Tuxedo
version before any entries for Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2.
For example the setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/home/user/Oracle/tuxedo12cR2/lib:/prod/tuxedo/8.1/lib, will cause your
pre-8.49 domains to no longer work. You would need to change this to
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/prod/tuxedo/8.1/lib:/home/user/Oracle/tuxedo12cR2/lib for your pre8.49 domains to work.
Alternatively, you can set the environment variables for a desired release using these steps:
1. Go to the TUXDIR directory for the release that you want to run and run the command ./tux.env.
This command sets the environment variables needed to run Oracle Tuxedo.
2. Verify the correct Oracle Tuxedo version by running this command:
tmadmin -v
See Verifying the Server Installation on UNIX.
Changing the TListen Port
Installing Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 and earlier creates a new service known as TListen. In most cases, you can
disable this service as it is not required to run PeopleSoft PeopleTools application server domains. However, if
you intend to use the Tuxedo Web Monitor you may wish to ensure that there is no port clash with earlier
versions. This port is determined at installation and should be changed to a port other than the default 3050 if you
intend on using the TListen service for Oracle Tuxedo 12cR2 and earlier Oracle Tuxedo versions concurrently.

Defining the PeopleSoft Installer
The PeopleSoft Installer is a Java-based tool that delivers software to your servers and to the PeopleTools Client.
You can install the whole range of PeopleSoft servers and client with the PeopleSoft installer. You can install the
server and client software separately or together.
Note. You must install the necessary web server products and any additional component software as described in
the previous chapters before you run the PeopleSoft Installer.
The PeopleSoft Installer enables you to transfer files directly to various PeopleSoft servers—including application
servers, batch servers, web servers, and database servers—without first copying all files to a file server. You can
also use the PeopleSoft Installer to install the files for the PeopleTools Client.

119
Using the PeopleSoft Installer
Chapter 4
You run the PeopleSoft installer to install the necessary products on the target machines. Which files are installed
depends on the operating system on the target machine, the database platform, and the selected server option. The
PeopleSoft Installer installs files directly to Microsoft Windows, UNIX, and Linux machines. PeopleSoft
PeopleTools and PeopleSoft applications use the same PeopleSoft installation template. This chapter discusses the
installation of PeopleSoft PeopleTools, followed by the installation of PeopleSoft application software and the
application-specific Multilanguage files.
All licensed components of the PeopleSoft Architecture must be installed on each server. If you are not able to
download and extract the PeopleSoft installation files directly on a UNIX machine, for example, you can
download to the Windows file server and then FTP the files to your UNIX system.
You can install multiple logical servers to the same machine. For example, you can have the application server
and the batch server on the same machine. But, if you want to install different servers to different machines, you
have to run the PeopleSoft Installer once for each server.
Before beginning the installation, be sure to review the information about the various PeopleSoft servers and
clients in the chapter "Preparing for Installation."

Prerequisites
Verify that you fulfill the following requirements before beginning the installation:
•
The PeopleSoft Installer requires Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which is bundled for all OS platforms. The
PeopleSoft Installer directly uses the bundled JVM, and therefore does not need to search for the JVMs in the
directories in which users would typically install JVM. PeopleSoft PeopleTools supports JRE/JDK 1.7 and
higher patch level. See My Oracle Support for information on the correct JRE version for your system.
See My Oracle Support, Certifications.
•
Before running the PeopleSoft installer, you must verify that you have the correct patches for your JVM level.
Check My Oracle Support and your vendor for required patches.
See Operating System, RDBMS, & Additional Component Patches Required for Installation PeopleTools, My
Oracle Support, (search for the article title).
•
Make sure you have at least 4.5 GB of free space to perform your installation.
See Running the PeopleSoft Installer.
•
The installation process also requires at least 2.0 GB of free temporary disk space, which is needed only for
the duration of the process. The process uses the directory defined by the TEMP environment variable on your
installation computer or the directory specified by the -tempdir option when using setup.sh to install.
Oracle strongly recommends that you use the –tempdir option to install, using the following guidelines:
•
Do not use /tmp as the temporary directory.
•
Do not specify /tmp as the explicit temporary directory for the -tempdir option.
•
Do not specify a directory that is on a shared drive.
•
•
Do not specify a directory that is inside the location where PeopleSoft PeopleTools is being installed; for
example, PS_HOME/temp.
The user who installs PeopleSoft PeopleTools must be root or the owner of PS_HOME.
PS_HOME is used throughout this installation guide to refer to the high-level directory where your PeopleSoft
PeopleTools software is installed. The documentation may also use the notation $PS_HOME or
%PS_HOME% to refer to the PS_HOME environment variable in a code sample.
•
You can install the PeopleSoft Application software to PS_HOME, or to another directory outside PS_HOME.
This documentation refers to the directory where you install the PeopleSoft application software as
PS_APP_HOME.
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
•
You must have admin privileges to install the PeopleSoft web server.
•
You can install the PeopleSoft web server to PS_HOME, or to another directory outside PS_HOME. This
documentation refers to the directory where you install the PeopleSoft web server as PIA_HOME.
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.

Chapter 4
If your installation requires any PeopleSoft PeopleTools patches, you can apply the code (that is, the contents
of the zip file you downloaded from My Oracle Support) after running the PeopleSoft Installer. Do not apply
the database instructions at this time; the database objects will be applied later during the install. Be sure to
read and follow the instructions provided with the PeopleSoft PeopleTools patches.

Chapter 4
Multilanguage files
• PeopleTools Client files
The directory where the files are installed is referred to in this section as PS_HOME. As described earlier in this
documentation, you can configure your environment with separate installation locations for PeopleSoft
PeopleTools and PeopleSoft applications. It is a good idea to use a directory name that indicates the application
you are installing and the version number, such as HCM920 for the 9.2 version of PeopleSoft Human Capital
Management.
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
You can run the installer in GUI mode, on Microsoft Windows operating systems, or in console (text) mode, on
UNIX or Linux.
Note. The machine that you use to perform your PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation must be running in 256color mode or higher when running the PeopleSoft PeopleTools, PeopleSoft application, multilanguage, or
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, and database configuration in Microsoft Windows. This is not
necessary for UNIX or console mode.
The PeopleSoft Installer asks whether you want to install supporting features such as Environment Management
Hub. Before you run the PeopleSoft Installer, you may want to consult supporting documentation to help you in
choosing these options.

•
Specify the full absolute path to the Java (JRE or JDK) executable.
Use either of the options –javahome or –LAX_VM to specify the absolute path to the JRE or JDK
executable, including the executable name. Use this option if your installation is different than the vendordefined installation path. This is used by the installer as the runtime javahome.
On Microsoft Windows:
setup.bat -javahome D:\prod\java7\bin\java.exe
setup.bat -LAX_VM D:\prod\java7\bin\java.exe
On UNIX:
setup.sh -javahome /opt/java7/bin/java
setup.sh -LAX_VM /opt/java7/bin/java
•
Run in debug mode to investigate basic installer features.
1. Set the environment variable LAX_DEBUG; for example:
On Microsoft Windows:
set LAX_DEBUG=true
On UNIX:
export LAX_DEBUG=true
2. Run the installer; for example:
On Microsoft Windows:
setup.bat -DDEBUG=console
On UNIX:
setup.sh -DDEBUG=console
•
Specify the temporary directory to extract temporary files.
This is recommended if you have less than 2 GB of space in your default temporary directory. See the
Prerequisites section for information on choosing the temporary directory.
•
On Microsoft Windows, set the environment variable %TMP%, and then run setup.bat without an
option for the temporary directory; for example:
set TMP=D:\user\temp
setup.bat
•
On UNIX, use the –tempdir option to specify the absolute path to the temporary directory; for example:
setup.sh -tempdir /opt/home/user/temp
•
To use more than one of the preceding options, you can combine them in any order; for example:
setup.bat -i console -javahome D:\prod\java7\bin\java.exe
setup.sh -LAX_VM /opt/java7/bin/java -DDEBUG=console -i console

Task 4-3: Verifying Necessary Files for Installation on Windows
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and later releases are developed using Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and later.
Microsoft, as part of VC++ 2005, changed the way applications use and ship the required C Run Time (CRT) files
(these files are installed as shared assemblies). PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and higher programs require these
files to be present or the programs will not run.
During your PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation, the install programs will automatically update the Microsoft
Windows machine performing the installation.
The required CRT files are installed by all of the PeopleSoft installers, including:
•
PeopleSoft PeopleTools
•
PeopleTools Client
•
Database Configuration Wizard (DCW)
•
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
•
Change Assistant
•
Change Impact Analyzer
• Web Application Deployment tool
In some cases it may be necessary for you to carry out a separate installation of the CRT files. For example:
•
If the update does not take place during the installation program run, you may not be able to launch
PeopleSoft PeopleTools client or server executables on that machine and may receive error messages.
•
If you are accessing PeopleSoft PeopleTools executables from a machine on which the PeopleSoft installer
did not run, the executables may not work and you may receive error messages.
If you encounter these errors, you can update the Microsoft Windows machine's CRT files by running the
installers manually.
If installing on a server or PeopleTools Client environment:
1. Go to PS_HOME\setup\psvccrt.
2. Run psvccrt_retail.msi.
3. Run psvccrt_retail_x64.msi.
Note. For each installer, the installation is completed automatically.

Using the PeopleSoft Installer
Task 4-4: Installing PeopleSoft Application Software
After installing PeopleSoft PeopleTools, install the PeopleSoft application software to the same PS_HOME
directory, or to PS_APP_HOME. The installation windows may look slightly different depending upon which
application you install.
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
To install the PeopleSoft application, launch the PeopleSoft Installer from PS_INSTALL/disk1 and follow the
procedure in Running the PeopleSoft Installer.
Use the following guidelines when installing:
•
If supported by the PeopleSoft Application that you are installing, you can install the PeopleSoft Application
software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is not the same as the PS_HOME location where you installed
PeopleSoft PeopleTools. Be sure to review the installation guide for your PeopleSoft Application to determine
whether this functionality is supported.
•
If you are installing more than one application, it is a good idea to create an application-specific PS_HOME or
PS_APP_HOME and carry out an installation of PeopleSoft PeopleTools for each application. This helps you
to maintain your applications more efficiently, since you can easily match each application version to the
correct version of PeopleSoft PeopleTools.
•
The installation includes all products for your PeopleSoft application and both System Database and Demo
Database files. After you set up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, you will complete a step to update
the installation table for your licensed products.
See "Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in GUI Mode," Completing Post-Installation Steps.
See "Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in Console Mode," Completing Post-Installation
Steps.
Task 4-5: Installing the Multilanguage Files
If you are licensed for and have chosen to install languages other than English, you need to load the Applicationspecific PeopleSoft Multilanguage files. Each PeopleSoft Application product installation has corresponding
Multilanguage installation software that contains all the non-English translations.
To download the necessary files for a Multilanguage installation from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal,
select the Translation Media Pack for your PeopleSoft Application on the Media Pack Search page. The listing for
the Translation Media Pack is divided into sets of files for PeopleSoft PeopleTools, the PeopleSoft Application,
and the Multilanguage files for the PeopleSoft Application.
Warning! The release numbers for the PeopleSoft Application media pack and the Application Multilanguage
media pack must be in sync. For example, if you are installing HCM 9.2 Feature Pack 1, you can only use the
Multilanguage HCM 9.2 Feature Pack 1 ML; you cannot use the HCM 9.2 ML.
Download each media pack into a temporary location, referred to here as PS_INSTALL, launch the PeopleSoft
installer from PS_INSTALL/disk1, and follow the procedure in the task Running the PeopleSoft Installer.
To carry out a Multilanguage installation:
•
Install the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation files to PS_HOME.
•
Install the PeopleSoft Application installation files to PS_APP_HOME.
•
Install the PeopleSoft Application Multilanguage installation files to the same PS_APP_HOME as the

Task 4-6: Installing the PeopleTools Client Files
This section discusses:
•
Installing the PeopleTools Client Files Using the PeopleSoft Installer
•
Installing the PeopleTools Client Files in Silent Mode
Task 4-6-1: Installing the PeopleTools Client Files Using the PeopleSoft
Installer
To install the files needed for the PeopleTools Client, you must first install PeopleSoft PeopleTools. After you
install PeopleSoft PeopleTools, launch the PeopleSoft Installer from PS_HOME\setup\Client\Disk1 and follow
the procedure in the section Running the PeopleSoft Installer. Note that the PeopleTools Client installation does
not include the Environment Management Setup window.
Note. If you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools on a UNIX or Linux computer, you can copy the directory
PS_HOME\setup\Client\ to a Microsoft Windows machine to install the client.
Task 4-6-2: Installing the PeopleTools Client Files in Silent Mode
This section discusses:
•
Editing the Response File
•
Running the Silent Mode Installation for the PeopleTools Client
Editing the Response File
You can carry out a silent installation of the PeopleTools client files by providing all the required settings in a
response file. With silent installation there is no user interaction after the installation begins.
You need a response file to start the installer in silent mode. After installing PeopleSoft PeopleTools you can find
a response file template (resp_file_client.txt) in the directory PS_HOME\setup\Client\Disk1. Modify the values in
the response file according to your installation requirements. Use the information in the section Running the
PeopleSoft installer for guidance in editing the file.
For example, to specify D:/PT8.55_Client as the installation directory, edit the file to include this line:
USER_INSTALL_DIR=D:/PT8.55_Client
Note. Use a forward slash ("/") to specify the directory.
Sample response file:
# Response file for Client Installation

8.55)
USER_INPUT_RESULT_14=PeopleTools Client 8.55
Running the Silent Mode Installation for the PeopleTools Client
Use the response file that you modified for your configuration. Substitute the location where you saved the
response file for <path_to_response_file> in the following procedures:
To install the PeopleTools client files in silent mode:
1. In a command prompt, go to PS_HOME\setup\Client\Disk1.
2. Run the following command:
setup.bat -i silent -DRES_FILE_PATH=<path_to_response_file>
Task 4-7: Mapping a Drive on the Install Workstation
If you need to install to the file server or PeopleTools Client from a networked install workstation, map a drive
letter to the top-level PeopleSoft directory (PS_HOME) from the install workstation. The PS_HOME directory
must be shared, and you must have write permission from the install workstation to the file server or PeopleSoft
Client.
From the install workstation, create a logical drive that points to the PS_HOME directory.
On a Windows network, use Windows Explorer to map to the drive on the file server or PeopleTools Client to
which you are installing; or use the NET USE command, for example:
NET USE N: \\SERVER1\PS_HOME

Understanding the Install Workstation
This chapter describes how to set up a PeopleSoft Windows-based client for connecting to the database server in
two-tier mode, specifically for the purpose of performing install-related tasks from the workstation. You must
configure at least one two-tier Windows-based client for running the Data Mover and SQR processes required for
setting up the batch server and for creating the PeopleSoft database. For some installations you may wish to set up
multiple install workstations, so that you can perform asynchronous tasks at the same time; for example, you
could create and populate multiple databases simultaneously. You can quickly configure multiple workstations by
exporting a configuration file from one workstation and importing it to another workstation.
See Also
PeopleTools: System and Server Administration
Prerequisites
The following tasks are prerequisites for setting up the install workstation:
•
The workstation must have database connectivity software installed.
•
You must have planned your database creation strategy. You should know the precise names of the databases
that you intend to create.
•
Make sure that you have created your connect strategy. You must use a Connect ID. You should know both
the Connect ID and Connect password.
For information on PeopleSoft Connect ID and Connect password, consult the PeopleTools: System and
Server Administration product documentation for information on setting Application Server domain
parameters.
•
The workstation must have a logical drive mapped to PS_HOME on the file server (or, if the file server and

Setting Up the Install Workstation
Chapter 5
install workstation are one and the same, PS_HOME can be installed on a local drive).
• The person performing the installation must have read access to the PS_HOME directory.
If this is the same workstation on which the PeopleSoft PeopleTools installation was performed, it should have a
PeopleTools 8.5 installation program group, which was created when you loaded the PeopleTools software. This
isn't a requirement, but it does make it more convenient to run the PeopleTools install applications.

"Preparing for Installation"
"Using the PeopleSoft Installer"
Task 5-1: Starting Configuration Manager
Configuration Manager is a utility for configuring workstations being used as the PeopleTools Development
Environment. These are its principal functions:
•
Sets up and make changes to PeopleSoft configuration settings.
•
Creates a program group containing Microsoft Windows shortcuts to PeopleSoft applications.
• Installs local DLLs.
The first time you run Configuration Manager on the client, it will populate certain fields with default values
specified in a configuration file stored on the file server, specifically: PS_HOME\setup\pstools.cfg. This
configuration file was set up when you ran the installation. Once you set up and run Configuration Manager, it
will populate fields using values that are stored in the Windows system registry.
To start Configuration Manager, do one of the following:
•
On Microsoft Windows 7, select Start, Programs, PeopleTools 8.55, Configuration Manager. (This program
group will be available if you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools on this workstation.)
•
On Microsoft Windows 8 or 2012 R2, access the Apps screen, navigate to the PeopleTools 8.55 category, and
select Configuration Manager.
Note. See the documentation for your operating system for information on accessing the Apps screen.
•
If the PeopleTools 8.55 program group was not installed on this workstation, run pscfg.exe directly from the
PS_HOME\bin\client\winx86 directory on the file server.
Task 5-2: Setting Startup Options
The Startup tab of Configuration Manager sets the default options for the PeopleSoft sign-on screen that is used
for connecting to a PeopleSoft database. It also contains a setting that specifies the local directory for storing
cached PeopleSoft data.
To set Startup options:
1. Confirm that you are viewing the Configuration Manager Startup tab (this tab is what you see if you started
Configuration Manager as described in the previous task).
2. Set the following options:
•
152
Database type — Verify the type of RDBMS. This should already be set to DB2 UDB for UNIX, NT.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 5
Setting Up the Install Workstation
•
Application Server Name — This option appears if you select a database type of Application Server. It is
where you enter your application server name if you are setting up a three-tier connection.
•
Database name — The name of the default database to connect to. Enter the name of one of the databases
that you intend to create.
•
User ID — The name of the default user that will appear in the sign-on screen. This can be any valid user
name, although for installation setup it normally matches the name of one of the built-in PeopleSoft users
(typically PS or VP1) that will be installed in the database.
•
Connect ID and Connect Password — Type your connect ID and password into these fields. Connect ID
is required for this PeopleSoft release.
Task 5-3: Editing the Default Profile
Begin by editing the default profile for the workstation. Among other things, this will verify that the paths to
PS_HOME and its subdirectories are correctly set, which is required for subsequent tasks.
For more information on using Configuration Manager, see the PeopleTools: System and Server Administration
product documentation for configuring user profiles.
To edit the default profile:
1. Select the Profile tab in Configuration Manager.
Only one profile, the Default Profile, has been defined.
2. Select Edit to display the Edit Profile dialog box, and then select the Process Scheduler tab.

Verify that the PeopleSoft Home Directory (PS_HOME) field is set to the path to PS_HOME on the file
server.
•
Verify that the PeopleSoft Apps Home Directory (PS_APP_HOME) field is set to the path to
PS_APP_HOME on the file server.
The default value is the same as PS_HOME.
•
On Microsoft Windows operating systems, set the Database Drivers (DBBIN) field to the path for the
database connectivity files, if necessary.
The example shows the default for DB2/LUW, C:\sqllib\bin.
•
Set the SQR Executables (SQRBIN) field to the file server directory where SQR for Windows was
installed when you ran the PeopleSoft Installer.
•
Set the SQR Flags (PSSQRFLAGS) field to -ZIF<PS_HOME>\sqr\pssqr.ini.
•
Set the SQR Report Search 1 (PSSQR1) field to PS_HOME\sqr. The remaining SQR Report Search fields
can be left blank, because no additional SQR report directories have been created yet.

default profile.
To run Client Setup:
1. Select the Client Setup tab in Configuration Manager.
2. In the Group Title text box enter the name of the program group for the icons you want on the client
workstation. (A program group name cannot contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? " < > |)
You can call the program group anything you want, but this documentation uses PeopleTools 8.55.
3. If you do not have a PeopleTools 8.55 program group set up on the workstation, be sure to check the
following two options for installing shortcuts to applications essential for installation.
Note. When you run Client Setup, it will uninstall any existing shortcuts in the PeopleTools 8.55 program
group, and install shortcuts for the applications you have selected. If you subsequently want to install or
uninstall shortcuts, you can always re-run Client Setup.
•

Understanding Database Creation
This section describes the tasks required to create a PeopleSoft product database. During a standard PeopleSoft
installation you will execute these tasks to create two distinct types of databases.
•
System: The System (SYS) database has no company specific data, and can be used to load your data and
begin development of your production database.
•
Demo: The Demo (DMO) database contains data for a sample company, and can be used immediately for
demonstration, for testing, and as a development reference.
The requirements for these databases vary, so not all of this section's tasks apply to each database. The
instructions will note any distinctions between creating a Demo and a System database.
Remember, you need to have the PeopleTools Development Environment set up to create your database.
Important! Do not forget that application-specific installation steps are provided in a separate document specific
to the application. For instance, if you are performing PeopleSoft CRM installation, you need both this PeopleSoft
PeopleTools installation guide and any additional instructions provided by CRM. Search in My Oracle Support
for the installation documentation specific to your application.
Note. For the sake of brevity, this documentation sometimes refers to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows as
DB2/LUW.

Note. The Database Configuration Wizard cannot be used on a Microsoft Windows operating system. You must
use the manual method of creating a database for this configuration.
After you complete the tasks in this chapter, read the chapter "Completing the Database Setup." Depending upon
your environment, you may not need to carry out every task in that chapter. However it is important that you
evaluate the requirements and perform the necessary tasks.

Task 6A-1: Determining Tablespace Strategy for Demo Database
The default installation for PeopleSoft databases uses separate tablespaces for Data and Index storage. Due to the
separation of Index tablespaces, the only available tablespace choice for PeopleSoft databases is DMS.
For multiple tablespaces, the PeopleSoft installation provides a tablespace strategy for demonstration and system
databases aimed at identifying high-growth and high-update tables. This limits the number of tables the DBA
must monitor and analyze, and simplifies capacity planning and database tuning activities. The standard
tablespace names that Oracle delivers for the PeopleSoft installation categorize tables as follows:
•
High growth and high update tables are grouped together into tablespaces named XXLARGE, where XX is a
PeopleSoft application identifier. It's expected that each table defined in XXLARGE will be placed in its own
tablespace for system testing or production for performance and recovery reasons.
•
Relatively stable tables are grouped into tablespaces named XXAPP, where XX is a PeopleSoft application
identifier. These tables may be placed in shared tablespaces defined with a moderate freespace specification.
•
Tables containing rows exceeding 4K in width and/or containing LOB data types are assigned in the
PSIMAGE or PSIMAGE2 tablespace.

(Microsoft Windows) script, replacing the following items with your information.
Items to Edit
Appropriate Values
<db2-database-name>
This is usually the same name as the PeopleSoft database
name.
<dir-name>
This is the DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
directory where the database and log files will reside.
Optionally, you can specify another directory or device for
logs using the NEWLOGPATH statement.
See "Creating a Database on UNIX," Changing the Location
of the DB2/LUW Database Log Files.
Note. On Microsoft Windows, specify a drive letter. See the
IBM documentation for more information.

Appropriate Values
<supplied-territory>
Consult the DB2/LUW reference manual section on
"Supported territory codes and code pages" for information
on territory identifiers and code sets. This applies to the
CREATEDB-95.SQL script only.
Make note of the following:
•
The database name must be in UPPERCASE and cannot exceed eight characters.
•
Oracle recommends placing the data and log files in separate file systems and creating each file system on a
different physical disk drive to reduce I/O contentions.
•
The value assigned for database bufferpool size is the minimum for a PeopleSoft database. Consider
increasing the size of the BUFFPAGE to improve performance. The total amount of BUFFPAGE memory
allocated for all the databases running on the same computer should not exceed 75% of the computer memory.
•
All the remaining configuration settings are the minimum recommendations to run PeopleSoft database. Do
not change any settings to a lower value. To operate the database effectively, most of the database
configuration parameters will have to be tuned for the end-user computing environment.
Note. For Unicode databases you need to set the db2 codepage for your db2 instance. To do this execute the
command db2set db2codepage=1208
•
The CREATEDB-95.SQL, or CREATEDBU.SQL script assumes that you are using circular logs for your
demonstration database. For a production database, the archive logs are recommended.
•
Statements near the end of the script examples define 16K Bufferpool (non-Unicode) and 32K Bufferpool
(Unicode) to support LOB data types for PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 and later.
The following are examples of these scripts:
Note. Starting with PeopleTools 8.49, the database configuration is done with a call to an inline defined Stored
Procedure, ps_db_cfg. DO NOT change the Stored Procedure definition.

Chapter 6A
Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX
The XXDDLDMS.SQL script configures DMS tablespaces (DATABASE MANAGED SPACE) and is run against
the SYS and DMO database. For a discussion of DMS tablespace management, search for the tuning and
administration documentation on My Oracle Support.
Each of these scripts is in PS_HOME/scripts (UNIX) on the database server or PS_HOME\scripts (Microsoft
Windows) directory on the file server. Edit the scripts to change the containers, using your site-specific values.
The container path names in the delivered script are samples; any path name may be used.
We recommend that each container (data1, data2, data3, and so forth) reside on a separate physical hard drive.
The sample script illustrates how to divide the database into three homogenous sets of DB2/LUW containers. You
may want to increase or decrease the number of containers based on the number of physical disk drives available
for your database use.
Multilanguage databases
If you are installing a multilanguage database, you need to increase the size of several tablespaces configured in
XXDDLDMS.SQL to accommodate additional system data related to each non-U.S. English language.
The following table shows the amount each affected tablespace should be increased for each non-US English
language:
Tablespace
Amount of Increase
PTTBL
2284 4K pages (9MB)
PSIMAGE
8408 4K pages (34MB)
DB2 Automatic re-sizing
Starting with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50, support for the DB2 Automatic re-sizing of Tablespaces feature is
enabled by default. However, when creating a database manually, both XXDDLDMS.sql and XXDDLDMSU.sql
scripts must be edited first to include the AUTORESIZE parameter for each Tablespace DDL as follows (the new
entries are in bold text):
CREATE TABLESPACE <TBSPCNAME> MANAGED BY DATABASE USING
( FILE '/data1/psdb2/<DBNAME>/<TBSPCNAME>.DBF' 10 M
) EXTENTSIZE 16 PREFETCHSIZE 48 DROPPED TABLE RECOVERY OFF
AUTORESIZE YES INCREASE 10M MAXSIZE NONE;
Additional tablespaces
Beginning with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53, new tablespaces PSIMAGE2, PSIMAGE2IDX, and
PSIMAG2LOB are delivered. These tablespaces are created with pagesize 16K (non-Unicode) and 32K
(Unicode), and bufferpool size 16K (non-Unicode) and 32K (Unicode). These required tablespaces contain tables
with LOB (CLOB/DBCLOB/BLOB) data types.
See PeopleTools 8.53 Release Notes, My Oracle Support.
Before running the Data Mover import task, verify that the XXDDLDMS.SQL and XXDDLDMSU.SQL scripts
include these tablespaces.
Task 6A-2-6: Editing DBOWNER.SQL
If you are creating a Unicode database, replace all references to DBOWNER.sql below with DBOWNERU.sql.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
167
Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX
Chapter 6A
Edit the DBOWNER.SQL script, substituting values as specified in the following table:
Items to Edit
Appropriate Values
<db2-database-name>
The database name as specified in the CREATEDB-95.SQL
or CREATEDBU.SQL script.
This script creates the PS.PSDBOWNER table.
For example:
Original:
-- Create table PS.PSDBOWNER, and grant access -connect to <db2-database-name>
create table ps.psdbowner (dbname char(8), ownerid char(8))
grant select on ps.psdbowner to public
commit
Unicode:
-- Create table PS.PSDBOWNER, and grant access -connect to <db2-database-name>
create table ps.psdbowner (dbname VARGRAPHIC(8), ownerid VARGRAPHIC(8))
grant select on ps.psdbowner to public
commit
Note. The Owner ID specified in this script must be the same value specified in the Access ID field in the task
Creating Data Mover Import Scripts later in this chapter.
Task 6A-2-7: Editing PSADMIN.SQL
Edit the PSADMIN.SQL script, substituting values as specified in the following table:
Items to Edit
Appropriate Values
db2–database-name
The database name as specified in the CREATEDB-95.SQL
or CREATEDBU.SQL script.
<owner-id>
The Table Owner ID you selected earlier in this chapter.
This script grants privileges on the database to the Owner ID.
Task 6A-3: Running SQL Scripts
Run the scripts edited in the preceding step to create the database and tablespaces.
To create the DB2/LUW database:
1. Log in to the DB2/LUW database server as the PeopleSoft Table Owner.
This USER ID was created in an earlier task in this installation guide.

Chapter 6A
Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX
2. On Microsoft Windows, run the following command:
db2set DB2_CREATE_DB_ON_PATH=YES
3. Execute the CREATEDB-95.SQL script (if non-Unicode) or the CREATEDBU.SQL script (if Unicode),
using the db2 utility. For example:
•
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vtf createdb-95.sql > createdb-95.sql.out
•
For UNIX:
db2 -vtf createdb-95.sql |tee createdb-95.sql.out
After the script completes, check the log file to verify that the database has been successfully created and took all
the database configuration changes.
1. Stop the instance with DB2STOP and then start it again with DB2START.
2. Execute the ALTRDB.SQL script using the db2 utility. For example:
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vf altrdb.sql > altrdb.sql.out
For UNIX:
db2 -vf altrdb.sql | tee altrdb.sql.out
This script enables the system to use the bufferpool specified in the BUFFPAGE parameter previously in the
CREATEDB-95.SQL or CREATEDBU.SQL script.
3. If you are creating a Unicode database, execute the CREATEBPU.SQL script using the db2 utility. For
example:
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vf createbpu.sql > createbpu.sql.out
For UNIX:
db2 -vf createbpu.sql | tee createbpu.sql.out
4. Connect to the database and execute XXDDLDMS.
The user who runs this script must have read and write authority to the container (for example,
/data1/psdb2/ptdbname on UNIX or C:\PS_DB\ptdbname on Microsoft Windows). Make sure the Table
Owner ID has read and write authority to these containers.
Note. If you are creating a Unicode database, replace all references to XXDDLDMS.sql below with XX
DDLDMSU.sql.
a. Connect to the new database by issuing this command (substituting your database name for HR920SYS):
db2 connect to HR920SYS
b. Execute the SQL script by issuing this command (substituting for hrddldms as appropriate):
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vtf hrddldms.sql > hrddldms.sql.out
For UNIX:
db2 -vtf hrddldms.sql | tee hrddldms.sql.out
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

Chapter 6A
c. Verify from the generated log file that all tablespaces were created.
5. Execute the DBOWNER.SQL script to create the PS.PSDBOWNER table and create the owner for your
PeopleSoft database. Use the following command:
Note. If you are creating a Unicode database, replace all references to DBOWNER.sql below with
DBOWNERU.sql.
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vf dbowner.sql > dbowner.sql.out
For UNIX:
db2 -vf dbowner.sql | tee dbowner.sql.out
6. Execute the PSADMIN.SQL script to grant DBADM privileges to the database owner. Use the following
command:
For Microsoft Windows:
db2 -vf psadmin.sql > psadmin.sql.out
For UNIX:
db2 -vf psadmin.sql | tee psadmin.sql.out
After the successful execution of all the scripts detailed above, and after the database has been created, review the
task Creating Data Mover Import Scripts, and the following tasks, to create and execute the Data Mover scripts to
populate the database with start-up data.

If you are unable to connect check the following items:
•
Review all previous tasks in this chapter.
•
Is the DB2/LUW instance started?
•
Can you issue the Connect command on the DB2/LUW database server using the CLP?
•
Can you log into the database using the user name and password you're using as a Connect ID?
•
Does the database exist on the DB2/LUW database server? Is it catalogued on the client?
•
Are you spelling the database name properly on the command line? Case does not matter because CLP
converts the database name to uppercase.
•
On Windows, make sure the \SQLLIB directory is in the PATH.
•
On Windows, make sure that environment variable DB2INSTANCE=DB2.
•

Task 6A-5-1: Configuring Database Connectivity for DB2 Connect and DB2
Client V10.x or Later
You must configure client connectivity on the install workstation, and on any other Windows client that needs to
make a two-tier connection to the PeopleSoft database. This will be required on any workstation that needs to run
COBOL or SQR batch processes on the client. Use the instructions in this section if you are using DB2 Connect
or DB2 Client version 10.x or later, where x refers to the version number.
See My Oracle Support, Certifications, for information on supported versions.
Note. Configuration Assistant has been deprecated from version 10.x DB2 Connect and DB2 Client products so
creating and updating the DB2 Client Catalog must be done manually.
To create and update the DB2 Client catalog, open a DB2 Command window for the client you wish to create the
db2 catalog on and run the following commands to catalog the TCPIP NODE and the DB2 DATABASE:
db2 catalog TCPIP node <NODE-NAME> remote <DB2-DATABASE-HOST-NAME> server ⇒
<DB2-COMMUNICATION-PORT-NUMBER>
db2 catalog DATABASE <DATABASE-NAME> as <ALIAS-NAME> at node <NODE-NAME>
For example, to catalog a DB2 database on AIX:
db2 catalog TCPIP node TCPAIX06 remote qt-ibm06 server 5000
db2 catalog DATABASE T854U40 as T854U40 at node TCPAIX06

Task 6A-6: Configuring an ODBC Data Source for Connectivity on
Microsoft Windows
This task applies only to installations on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Use these instructions to
configure and validate a 64-bit ODBC data source for connectivity to PeopleSoft PeopleTools components
including PeopleSoft Application Server, Application Designer and Data Mover.
This section assumes that you have installed a supported version of DB2 Client or DB2 Connect.
See My Oracle Support, Certifications.
To configure a 64-bit data source for PeopleSoft PeopleTools components:
1. Select Start, IBM DB2, instance id, Command Line Tools, Command Window.
For example, if you accepted the default, instance id would be DB2.
The Command Window opens.
2. Run the following command and confirm that the response specifies that the DB2 Client or DB2 Connect
installation is 64-bit:
db2level
3. Run the following commands, specifying your DB2/LUW PeopleSoft database name:
db2 catalog system odbc data source <database-name>
db2 terminate
4. Run the following command and confirm that your data source for your database is now registered.
db2 list system odbc data sources
5. To validate, start your Application Server. Application Designer, or Data Mover.
You should not get any connectivity errors.
If the 64-bit data source is not properly configured, you see an error similar to the one below. This is an

To complete the database creation procedure you must supply information on various authorization IDs and
passwords, including Access ID, Connect ID, Symbolic ID, and User IDs. Before beginning this procedure,
review the information in the section Planning Database Creation and make a note of the authorization
information for your environment. For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 and later releases, the user profiles in
PeopleTools demo databases are delivered disabled. During the procedure to create Data Mover import scripts
you will choose whether to enable the delivered user profiles, and how to assign passwords for the profiles. In
addition, you will supply several passwords that were previously provided as defaults. Be sure to note the
passwords that you supply, as they will be needed for subsequent installation procedures.
See the information on administering user profiles in the PeopleTools: Security Administration product
documentation.
See "Preparing for Installation," Planning Database Creation.
Task 6A-7-1: Working with Multilingual Databases
All PeopleSoft releases are shipped with English as the database's base language. Therefore when selecting
components for the Data Mover Import script, you must select the English components in addition to any other
languages you have licensed. After the installation is complete, you can change the database's base language to
the language that you plan to use most frequently, or leave the base language as English.
Read the section Planning Multilingual Strategy for information on installing multiple languages and changing
your base language.
See "Preparing for Installation," Planning Multilingual Strategy.
If you are creating a database and want to load Oracle-provided translations for non-English languages, you must
load English (ENG) in addition to the foreign language components.
If you are creating a non-Unicode database, you must ensure that the languages you select are all supported by the
character set you used to create your database.
Note. During the database setup process, you have the option to select the database's base language. Select the
language that you plan to use most frequently. If the database's base language is different than that set in this
database setup process, generate the SWAP_BASE_LANGUAGE command in the Data Mover Import script to
swap the language.
See PeopleTools: Global Technology.
Task 6A-7-2: Running Database Setup to Create Data Mover Import Scripts

Populating Tables in the PeopleSoft Database
Understanding Data Mover Import Scripts
Now you will run the Data Mover scripts (DMS) that you created in the preceding task to import the data for your
PeopleSoft database. The Data Mover script creates either a system (SYS) or a demo (DMO) database.
When you initially logged onto Data Mover to create the DMS scripts, you logged in with the Access ID and
password, using bootstrap mode. You need to use bootstrap mode to run the Data Mover import script, because
there are not yet any PeopleSoft security tables in the database.
When you start Data Mover in bootstrap mode, the word "BootStrap" appears in the Data Mover status bar.
See PeopleTools: Data Management.

Task 6A-8-1: Populating Tables in the PeopleSoft Database
To populate tables in the PeopleSoft database:
1. The DMS import script for your application will contain hard-coded file names for log files and data files.
Modify the DMS script if you have moved any files from the delivered directories or want to write log files to
another location than that specified in the script.
2. Select File, Run to execute the script.
When you run the script, Data Mover typically performs the following actions:
•

PeopleTools: Data Management
Task 6A-9-3: Troubleshooting
If the DMS script has stopped midway (this can happen for a number of reasons) you need to edit the script and
start again.
If running a script results in an SQL error, it may be because the PS.PSDBOWNER table contains duplicate rows,
an invalid user ID is specified, or the Owner ID column in the PSLOCK table is specified in uppercase or is
incorrect. If this is the case fix PS.PSDBOWNER.
To edit and restart the DMS script:
1. Determine the record that was being imported (that is, which IMPORT command was running) when the
script stopped, and use the following guidelines to edit and rerun the DMS scripts.
When building a DMO database or a multilingual database, adding the SET START statement can be tricky
because the Data Mover script used to load the database will include more than one IMPORT statement. The
key is to view the log files and determine which IMPORT section of the script Data Mover failed on.
•
If the failure occurred during the first IMPORT statement, add the SET START statement before the first
IMPORT *; statement.
•
If the failure occurred during a subsequent IMPORT statement, comment out all statements preceding the
IMPORT *; statement where the failure occurred and add the SET START statement before the IMPORT
*; statement of the section in which the failure occurred.
•
This is very important: If you see any "unique index constraint" error messages in the "Building required
indexes" section, your IMPORT script failed during a subsequent IMPORT but the SET START statement
was added to the first IMPORT. In this situation, you can run the Data Mover script in its originally
generated form, with only one modification. In the first IMPORT section, change the statement "IMPORT
*;" to "REPLACE_DATA *;". This will delete all the data in the tables, and re-import it. This process will
take some time to run, and you will need to separately create each of the indexes that failed.
2. Run Data Mover as previously described.
See Running Data Mover.
The PeopleSoft Logon dialog box appears.
3. Log on using the Access ID to start Data Mover in bootstrap mode.
Use the Access ID you specified when you created the Data Mover scripts with the Database Setup utility.
The input window should display the DMS import script for the database. The script has the format
<dbname>dbx.dms.
4. If necessary, select File, Open, and browse to the PS_HOME/scripts directory to find the appropriate DMS
script.
5. Add the following line before the offending IMPORT command (the one being executed when the failure
occurred):
SET START <RECORD NAME>;
<RECORD NAME> is the name of the record that failed. Make sure to review the Data Mover log file to see
where the script failed and locate the last record that imported successfully. The SET START command will
begin the Data Mover import at the specified record name.

191
Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX
Chapter 6A
Note. It is a good idea to change the name of the log file in the script before each attempt at running it. This
ensures that you have a separate log file for each attempt, if you run the import more than once.
For example, if the script stops and the table is partially inserted with a message similar to this one:
Importing PSPNLFIELD
Rows inserted into PSPNLFIELD
3000
First drop the partially inserted table (for example, record) by using the DROP TABLE command, and then
restart Data Mover at the record that failed using the SET START command and continue the Data Mover
import. This can be done in a single pass.
Add the following lines before the offending IMPORT *; command (the one being executed when the failure
occurred):
SET START <RECORD NAME>;
DROP TABLE <RECORD NAME>;
where <RECORD NAME> is the name of the record that failed. The SET START statement will begin the
Data Mover import at the specified <RECORD NAME>.
Example of the original script:
REM - PeopleTools System Database - US English
/
SET LOG ptengs.log;
SET INPUT ptengs.db;
SET COMMIT 30000;
SET NO VIEW;
SET NO SPACE;
SET NO TRACE;
SET UNICODE ON;
IMPORT *;
Example of script after modification, with changes in bold font:
REM - PeopleTools System Database - US English
/
SET LOG ptengs2.log;
SET INPUT ptengs.db;
SET COMMIT 30000;
SET NO VIEW;
SET NO SPACE;
SET NO TRACE;
SET UNICODE ON;
SET START PSPNLFIELD;
DROP TABLE PSPNLFIELD;
IMPORT *;
For the DROP statement, for records with a recname without a leading PS, add PS_ to the beginning of the
recname; otherwise the table will not be found. For example, PS_<RECNAME>.
6. Restart the script in Data Mover by selecting File, Run Script, or use the psdmtx command to execute Data
Mover on the command line.

Task 6A-9-4: Improving Performance
The following tips can help you save time when running the Data Mover scripts:
•
Run Data Mover from the fastest workstation available.
•
Run Data Mover on the database server.
•
Run only a single instance of Data Mover, and do not have any other applications running during the import.
•
In the PeopleSoft Configuration Manager, turn off all trace options.
Tracing during a DMS load will add considerable time to the process.
•
Copy the database file over to the workstation so that Data Mover can access it locally instead of over the
network.
• Run Data Mover on the database server with the .db or .dat file located locally.
If you are comfortable changing the options available for a DB2/LUW instance and database, you might consider
"tuning" the instance and database used for the import. Some of these options are appropriate only during the
import, so you may not want to keep them in effect after the import is complete.
Task 6A-10: Changing the Base Language
The information in the earlier task Planning Multilingual Strategy will help you determine whether you should
change your base language, and lists the currently supported languages.
See "Preparing for Installation," Planning Multilingual Strategy.
See PeopleTools Certifications — Supported Languages, My Oracle Support (search for article name).
This task applies only if your users will be operating PeopleSoft applications primarily in one particular language
other than English. It gives a performance boost to the language you designate as the base language, but requires
more administrative overhead than leaving English as the base language. The details are spelled out in the
PeopleTools: Global Technology product documentation.

Understanding the Database Configuration Wizard
The Database Configuration Wizard is a tool designed to simplify your PeopleSoft database installation. When
you run the Database Configuration Wizard, Data Mover is also running silently.
See PeopleTools: Data Management.
Important! Do not forget that application-specific installation steps are provided in a separate document specific
to the application. For instance, if you are performing PeopleSoft CRM installation, you need both this PeopleSoft
PeopleTools installation guide and you also need any additional instructions provided by CRM. My Oracle
Support provides installation guides that are specific to your application.
See My Oracle Support, (search for "installation," the application name, and release).
You also have the option of using a manual process for creating a PeopleSoft database, instead of using the
Database Configuration Wizard. The manual process is mandatory for some configurations.
See "Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX."
Note. For the sake of brevity, this documentation sometimes refers to DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
as DB2/LUW.
After you complete the tasks in this chapter, read the chapter "Completing the Database Setup." Depending upon
your environment, you may not need to carry out every task in that chapter. However it is important that you

platform has a dependency on the Oracle Tuxedo software.
•
You must run the Database Configuration Wizard at the database server.
Note. Before you can configure the database, the system administrator ID must have a corresponding password.
See the information on PeopleSoft Configuration Manager in the PeopleTools: System and Server Administration
product documentation.

Task 6B-1-2: Completing Registry Settings
For the Database Configuration Wizard to run successfully, certain DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
registry settings must be set. These settings are required for the Database Configuration Wizard and PeopleSoft
PeopleTools to function properly:
Required DB2/LUW Registry Setting
Purpose
db2set DB2CODEPAGE=1208 (Unicode only)
Sets the client codepage to Unicode.
db2set DB2_MIN_DEC_DIV_6=yes
Supports decimal precision up to 31 decimal places.

Task 6B-1-3: Rebinding of Packages Requirement
For DB2/LUW clients that are at a higher fixpack than the server, a rebind of the DB2/LUW utilities packages
and CLI packages is required for each new database that the client will be accessing. The rebind is required
because our truncate table support uses the DB2/LUW import function to truncate the table. The import function
requires rebinding of the DB2/LUW utilities package. The commands for rebinding are:
"DB2 bind @db2ubind.lst blocking all grant public" for DB2 utilities⇒
packages.
"DB2 bind @db2cli.lst blocking all grant public" for CLI packages.
Task 6B-1-4: Completing Required CLI Settings in the DB2CLI.INI File
Complete the following required CLI settings in the DB2CLI.INI file. These settings are required for the Database
Configuration Wizard and PeopleSoft PeopleTools to function properly.
•
DISABLEKEYSETCURSOR=1 (COMMON STANZA)
This is needed for SQR to function properly.
•
IGNOREWARNINGS=1 (DATABASE STANZA)
This is used to suppress the warning message that appears when an UPDATE or DELETE statement is
executed without a WHERE clause.
Note. The default DB2CLI.INI file delivered by IBM does not contain the COMMON STANZA or
DATABASE STANZA. You will need to edit the DB2CLI.INI file and add the COMMON STANZA or
DATABASE STANZA. Below is an example of COMMON STANZA and DATABASE STANZA for
database ABC to be added to the DB2CLI.INI file.
[COMMON]
DISABLEKEYSETCURSOR=1
[ABC]
IGNOREWARNINGS=1
Task 6B-1-5: Defining Database Manager Configuration
The DB2/LUW database manager configuration parameters are in the dbmcfg.sql file. These are the minimum
requirements provided by Oracle for the database manager configuration. But these dbm parameters are not
necessarily the optimal configuration for your environment. You may need to configure your DB2/LUW instance
so that it is optimal for your environment.
Task 6B-1-6: Defining Database Configuration
The database configuration parameters are in one of the following files:
•
CREATEDB-95.SQL — Non-Unicode
•
CREATEDBU.SQL — Unicode
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
197
Creating a Database on UNIX
Chapter 6B
These are the minimum requirements provided by Oracle for creating a PeopleSoft database. But these database
parameters are not necessarily the optimal database configuration. You will need to tune it for your environment.
You can add to or update the CREATEDB-95.SQL or CREATEDBU.SQL file with the appropriate database
parameters for your environment because the Database Configuration Wizard will use it as a template to create a
PeopleSoft database.
Beginning with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53, new tablespaces PSIMAGE2, PSIMAGE2IDX, and
PSIMAG2LOB are delivered. These tablespaces are created with pagesize 16K (non-Unicode) and 32K
(Unicode), and bufferpool size 16K (non-Unicode) and 32K (Unicode). These required tablespaces contain tables
with LOB (CLOB/DBCLOB/BLOB) data types.
See PeopleTools 8.53 Release Notes, My Oracle Support.
Before running the Database Configuration Wizard, verify that the XXDDLDMS.SQL (non-Unicode) and XX
DDLDMSU.SQL (Unicode) scripts include these tablespaces (XX is a two-character code corresponding to the
product line you are installing).
See "Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX," Editing SQL Scripts.
Task 6B-1-7: Running the Shell Script psconfig.sh
The shell script psconfig.sh sets up the environment for Data Mover to run. The PeopleSoft Data Mover utility is
used to load the database.
To run psconfig.sh:
1. Change the directory to PS_HOME.
2. Run psconfig.sh (. ./psconfig.sh)
Task 6B-2: Running the Database Configuration Wizard
When you run the Database Configuration Wizard, Data Mover typically performs the following actions:
1. IMPORT *.
Create all the PeopleTools and application tables with their indexes.
2. ENCRYPT_PASSWORD *
Encrypt security information for the database.
3. CREATE_TRIGGER *
Create application-required triggers.
4. REPLACE_VIEW *
Create PeopleSoft views.
5. CREATE_TEMP_TABLE *
Create PeopleSoft temporary tables.
If Data Mover fails at any of the above steps, it will complete the rest of the steps but will not start the next step—
instead the Database Configuration Wizard aborts and tells the user what file to review for the detailed error
message. If Data Mover fails at step 1 or 2, it is fatal. If Data Mover fails at step 3 or 4, it is not necessarily fatal.
You may continue the next step(s) manually.

To complete the database creation procedure you must supply information on various authorization IDs and
passwords, including Access ID, Connect ID, Symbolic ID, and User IDs. Before beginning this procedure,
review the information in the section Planning Database Creation and make a note of the authorization
information for your environment. Beginning with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53, the user profiles in PeopleTools
demo databases are delivered disabled. During the database configuration procedure you will choose whether to
enable the delivered user profiles, and how to assign passwords for the profiles. In addition, you will supply
several passwords that were previously provided as defaults. Be sure to note the passwords that you supply, as
they will be needed for subsequent installation procedures.
See the information on user profiles in the PeopleTools: Security Administration product documentation.

Creating a Database on UNIX
Chapter 6B
If you select Configure a server and create database, you see a message that the DB2 instance needs to be
recycled for the PeopleSoft recommended parameters to take effect at the instance level. If you select Create
database on existing server, the dbmcfg.sql does not get executed, which in turn does not require the DB2
instance to be recycled. This implies that the DB2 instance is already configured at a minimum with the
PeopleSoft recommended values and satisfy the prerequisites.
14. Enter the requested database server information, pressing ENTER after typing each value.
Note. Whatever you type as your password will not be displayed—for example, connect ID password and
database owner/access password requirement.
Note. To grant access to a PeopleSoft user ID the PeopleSoft sign-on process uses a connect ID, which is
defined in the database and has minimum privileges that allow it to select only on some security tables. After
the access has been granted, the PeopleSoft security will control the access for a PeopleSoft user ID to the
application objects. The use of a common connect ID for multiple PeopleSoft IDs simplifies database security
maintenance.
Note. Because the PeopleSoft Database Configuration Wizard goes through the whole process of creating the
database as well as launching Data Mover to load the database with PeopleSoft objects, the task requires
certain information for Data Mover to be able to connect to and populate the database.

Note. In PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and later, PeopleSoft databases running on the DB2/LUW platform can
take advantage of the IBM DB2 Auto-Resize option for tablespaces. The auto-resize option creates a
tablespace that automatically increases its size, in configurable increments, to accommodate increase in data
volume. Note, however, that you cannot measure the total size of the system database with Auto-Resize on.
Important! Disabling Auto Resize (selecting 2-No in the prompt below) can cause a Tablespace "out-ofspace" error condition during database creation.

Task 6B-3: Changing the Location of the DB2/LUW Database Log
Files
The CREATE DATABASE command in the createdb-95.sql or createdbu.sql script creates the database with the
default log files located in a subdirectory called SQLOGDIR under the directory created for the database. If the
default location is not appropriate, follow these steps:
To change the location of log files:
1. Connect to the newly created database.
2. Issue the following DB2 command:
db2 UPDATE DB CFG FOR <db2-database-name> USING NEWLOGPATH <dir-name>
where <db2-database-name> refers to the newly created PeopleSoft database from the previous task,
Running the Database Configuration Wizard, and <dir-name> is the location where you want the new log
files to be located.

This section discusses:
•
Checking the Log Files
•
Running Data Mover
•
Troubleshooting
•
Improving Performance
Task 6B-4-1: Checking the Log Files
After the Database Configuration Wizard finishes its execution, look for all log output in the PS_HOME/log
directory. Open all the log files. There is a log file for each of the steps that the Database Configuration Wizard
carries out—importing, encrypting passwords, creating triggers, replacing views, and creating temp tables. None
should contain error messages.
Task 6B-4-2: Running Data Mover
If the Database Configuration Wizard does not complete successfully, you must run Data Mover manually, using
one of the following methods.
On UNIX, run PS_HOME/bin/psdmtx from the command line.
If you use the access ID that you specified during the database configuration to log on, you log on in "bootstrap
mode." When you start Data Mover in bootstrap mode, the word "BootStrap" appears in the Data Mover status
bar.
If you use a valid PeopleSoft Operator ID, such as PS for Human Capital Management or VP1 for
Financials/Supply Chain Management, you log on in "user mode." In this mode, no designation appears in the
Data Mover status bar.
To run Data Mover on the command line:

[-CD database name]
[-CO user id]
[-CP user pswd]
[-CI connect id]
[-CW connect id pswd]
[-I process instance]
[-FP filename]
or
psdmtx [parmfile]
To capture the output in a file, use a greater-than symbol ("pipe", >) followed by a filename. For example:
psdmtx [arguments] > filename.txt
Use the following list of commands and descriptions for the psdmtx arguments:
Command Argument
Description
-CT <DB type>
The type of database to connect to. The valid values are:
DB2 and DB2UNIX.
-CD <DBNAME>
Your selected Database Name.
-CO <ACCESSID>
Use the <DBNAME> Access ID to run Data Mover in
bootstrap mode.
-CP <ACCESSPWD>
The password for <DBNAME> Access ID.
-CI <CONN ID>
The ID used to connect to the database server.
-CW <CONN PSWD>
The password for the specified connection ID.
-FP <filename>
The filename for the Data Mover import script (DMS) to
run.
3. To set up Data Mover to rerun the Data Mover import script in bootstrap mode, do the following:
a. Change directory to PS_HOME/setup.
b. Copy parmfile to parm<DBNAME>. For example, parmPT855.
c. Edit parm<DBNAME>.
Use the information in the table above to edit the file for your configuration.

Task 6B-4-3: Troubleshooting
If the Database Configuration Wizard did not complete successfully, read this troubleshooting information. If
your script has stopped midway (this can happen for a number of reasons) you need to edit the Data Mover script
generated automatically by the Database Configuration Wizard and restart Data Mover manually. The Data
Mover script files have the extension .dms and are sometimes referred to as "DMS scripts."
The generated Data Mover import script is saved in the PS_HOME/scripts directory. The script conforms to the
following naming convention:
<dbname>dbx.dms
If the Database Configuration Wizard fails while creating views, clear the cache folder, for example,
USER_HOME/PS_CACHE, and repeat the database creation.
See the information on startup settings in PeopleSoft Configuration Manager in the PeopleTools: System and
Server Administration product documentation.
If running a script results in an SQL error, it may be because the PS.PSDBOWNER table contains duplicate rows,
an invalid user ID is specified, or the Owner ID column in the PSLOCK table is specified in uppercase or is
incorrect. If this is the case fix PS.PSDBOWNER.
To edit and restart the DMS script:
1. Determine the record that was being imported (that is, which IMPORT command was running) when the
script stopped, and use the following guidelines to edit and rerun the DMS scripts.
When building a DMO database or a multilingual database, adding the SET START statement can be tricky
because the Data Mover script used to load the database will include more than one IMPORT statement. The
key is to view the log files and determine which IMPORT section of the script Data Mover failed on.
•
If the failure occurred during the first IMPORT statement, add the SET START statement before the first
IMPORT *; statement.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
209
Creating a Database on UNIX
•
Chapter 6B
If the failure occurred during a subsequent IMPORT statement, comment out all statements preceding the
IMPORT *; statement where the failure occurred and add the SET START statement before the IMPORT
*; statement of the section in which the failure occurred.
•
This is very important: If you see any "unique index constraint" error messages in the "Building required
indexes" section, your IMPORT script failed during a subsequent IMPORT but the SET START statement
was added to the first IMPORT. In this situation, you can run the Data Mover script in its originally
generated form, with only one modification. In the first IMPORT section, change the statement "IMPORT
*;" to "REPLACE_DATA *;". This will delete all the data in the tables, and re-import it. This process will
take some time to run, and you will need to separately create each of the indexes that failed.
2. Start Data Mover by running psdmtx on the command line.
See Running Data Mover.
3. Log on using the Access ID to start Data Mover in bootstrap mode.
The input window should display the DMS import script for the database. The script has the format
<dbname>dbx.dms.
4. If necessary, select File, Open, and browse to the PS_HOME/scripts directory to find the appropriate DMS
script.
5. Add the following line before the offending IMPORT command (the one being executed when the failure
occurred):
SET START <RECORD NAME>;
<RECORD NAME> is the name of the record that failed. Make sure to review the Data Mover log file to see
where the script failed and locate the last record that imported successfully. The SET START command will
begin the Data Mover import at the specified record name.
Note. It is a good idea to change the name of the log file in the script before each attempt at running it. This
ensures that you have a separate log file for each attempt, if you run the import more than once.
For example, if the script stops and the table is partially inserted with a message similar to this one:
Importing PSPNLFIELD
Rows inserted into PSPNLFIELD
3000
First drop the partially inserted table (for example, record) by using the DROP TABLE command, and then
restart Data Mover at the record that failed using the SET START command and continue the Data Mover
import. This can be done in a single pass.
Add the following lines before the offending IMPORT *; command (the one being executed when the failure
occurred):
SET START <RECORD NAME>;
DROP TABLE <RECORD NAME>;
where <RECORD NAME> is the name of the record that failed. The SET START statement will begin the
Data Mover import at the specified <RECORD NAME>.
Example of the original script:
REM - PeopleTools System Database - US English
/
SET LOG ptengs.log;
SET INPUT ptengs.db;
SET COMMIT 30000;

Chapter 6B
Creating a Database on UNIX
SET NO VIEW;
SET NO SPACE;
SET NO TRACE;
SET UNICODE ON;
IMPORT *;
Example of script after modification, with changes in bold font:
REM - PeopleTools System Database - US English
/
SET LOG ptengs2.log;
SET INPUT ptengs.db;
SET COMMIT 30000;
SET NO VIEW;
SET NO SPACE;
SET NO TRACE;
SET UNICODE ON;
SET START PSPNLFIELD;
DROP TABLE PSPNLFIELD;
IMPORT *;
For the DROP statement, for records with a recname without a leading PS, add PS_ to the beginning of the
recname; otherwise the table will not be found. For example, PS_<RECNAME>.
6. To restart the script, use the psdmtx command to execute Data Mover on the command line.
See Running Data Mover.
Task 6B-4-4: Improving Performance
The following tips can help you save time when running the Data Mover scripts:
•
Run Data Mover from the fastest workstation available.
•
Run Data Mover on the database server.
•
Run only a single instance of Data Mover, and do not have any other applications running during the import.
•
In the PeopleSoft Configuration Manager, turn off all trace options.
Tracing during a DMS load will add considerable time to the process.
•
Copy the database file over to the workstation so that Data Mover can access it locally instead of over the
network.
• Run Data Mover on the database server with the .db or .dat file located locally.
If you are comfortable changing the options available for a DB2/LUW instance and database, you might consider
"tuning" the instance and database used for the import. Some of these options are appropriate only during the
import, so you may not want to keep them in effect after the import is complete.

Selecting the Necessary Tasks to Complete the Database Setup
Review each of the tasks in this chapter to determine which are required for your database setup. Depending upon
the details of your installation you may not need to complete every task. However, it is important to evaluate the
tasks with respect to your specific situation.
Task 7-1: Reviewing Patch Application
The section Reviewing Patches and Updates Required at Installation in the first chapter of this documentation
instructed you to search the My Oracle Support Patches & Updates area for Required for Install patches for
PeopleSoft PeopleTools and your PeopleSoft application.
See "Preparing for Installation," Reviewing Patches and Updates Required at Installation.
The patch user documentation, which is included with the files that you download from My Oracle Support,
specifies whether the patch includes database changes. The type of patch you are applying may affect how you
proceed with the tasks in this chapter.
•
If you meet both of the following listed requirements, skip the task Updating Database to Latest PeopleTools
Release, and continue with the task Running Additional Database Mover Scripts:
•
You are installing either a PeopleSoft PeopleTools System (SYS) database or a database delivered on
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55.
•
You are applying a Required for Install PeopleSoft PeopleTools patch.
Follow the directions in the patch user documentation to apply the database changes.

Understanding Database Updates
Your PeopleSoft application database may be on a PeopleSoft PeopleTools release prior to the version that you
are currently running. For you to be able to sign on to your database after running the Data Mover script to load
your database, the PeopleSoft PeopleTools versions for your database and your file server must match. The steps
in this task ensure that your PeopleSoft database is in sync with the PeopleSoft PeopleTools version that you are
running.
Note. You will use Application Designer for several steps in this portion of the installation. Consult the
Application Designer documentation if you have questions.
See PeopleTools: Application Designer Developer's Guide
Note. If you are installing either a PeopleSoft PeopleTools System Database or a database delivered on
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, and you are applying a required for install PeopleSoft PeopleTools patch, skip the
steps in this task. Instead, follow the directions in the patch user doc to apply the database changes, and then
continue with the install at the task Running Additional Data Mover Scripts. If you are installing an application
SYS or DMO database that is not delivered on PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, please proceed with this task.

Chapter 7
Completing the Database Setup
This task must be run for any applications where the PeopleSoft PeopleTools version of the database that was
shipped is different than the version of PeopleSoft PeopleTools that you are running. To verify the PeopleSoft
PeopleTools release for your application database, run this SQL query:
select TOOLSREL from PSSTATUS
If the PeopleTools version is not 8.55, you must run this task. Otherwise, continue to the task Running Additional
Data Mover Scripts.
Task 7-2-1: Cleaning Up Data
If your database is delivered on PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.48 or higher, do not run this step, and instead, proceed
to Deleting Performance Monitor System Default Data. If your database is delivered on PeopleSoft PeopleTools
8.47 or earlier, perform this step to clean out obsolete message data.
Warning! Performing this task when updating from PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.48 or later will wipe out current
valid data that is needed for your system to function properly.
Message functionality and structure changed as of PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.48 and the old data is obsolete. Edit
PS_HOME\scripts\ptupgibdel.sql to delete data from the tables that only exist in the old PeopleSoft PeopleTools
release. Open the script and make the following modifications, and then run the modified script using your SQL
query tool:
1. Search for the string "--- End of PT8.<xx> ---" where <xx> represents the last two digits of the PeopleSoft
PeopleTools release you are upgrading from.
2. Delete the entire portion of the script below this string.
3. Save the script as <PS_HOME>\scripts\ptupgibdel8<xx>.sql where <xx> represents the last two digits of the
PeopleSoft PeopleTools release you are upgrading from, as determined in Step 1.
Important! Be sure to save the script using the naming convention shown above. This will preserve the
original script for use in updating other databases at different PeopleSoft PeopleTools releases.
4. Using a SQL query tool, run the ptupgibdel8<xx>.sql script against your PeopleSoft database.
Task 7-2-2: Deleting Performance Monitor System Default Data
If your database is delivered on PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.54 or higher, do not run this step, and instead, proceed
to Creating the PSIMAGE2, PSIMAGE2IDX, and PSIMAG2LOB Tablespaces. If your database is delivered on
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.45 through 8.53, perform this task to clean out obsolete message data.
Warning! Performing this task when updating from PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.54 or later will wipe out current
valid data that is needed for your system to function properly.
Truncate the PeopleTools table PSPMSYSDEFAULTS to ensure the successful completion of your installation.
Because a primary key index was added to this table as of PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.54, the data stored in this
table needs to be deleted to ensure that the index can be successfully created later in the installation.

Task 7-2-3: Creating the PSIMAGE2, PSIMAGE2IDX, and PSIMAG2LOB
Tablespaces
Review the XXDDLDMS.SQL (ANSI) or XXDDLDMSU.SQL (Unicode) tablespace creation script that was run
earlier in the install process (XX is a two-letter code for your product line). If the script did not include the
creation of the PSIMAGE2, PSIMAGE2IDX, and PSIMAG2LOB tablespaces, create them now.
Work with your database administrator (DBA) to review, edit, and then run the ptddlupg.sql (ANSI) or
ptddlupgu.sql (Unicode) script to create these tablespaces and any other missing tablespaces before continuing
with the installation.

structures of your database tables with the PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables to uncover inconsistencies. The ALTER
AUDIT process then reports its findings. At this point in the installation, we expect to see differences between the
database structure and the PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables. You will generate and run a SQL script to synchronize
the PeopleSoft PeopleTools table definitions with the underlying tables in your database.

Understanding Usage of Application Engine Programs
You run several Application Engine programs in this section. For information on Application Engine, including
how to use and restart Application Engine programs, consult the Application Engine documentation.
See PeopleTools: Application Engine.
Converting Portal Objects
Perform this step if the application database you are installing is PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.43 or earlier. The
Application Engine program UPG844PORTAL splits PSPRSMDEFN.PORTAL_URLTEXT into segments. This
is performed for PeopleSoft Components URLs to extract Menu, Component, and Market information. Record,
Field, Event, and Function Names are extracted from Iscript URLs. This program must be run by a PeopleSoft
user with the Portal Administrator or PeopleSoft Administrator role. The following SQL will identify which users
have the PeopleSoft Administrator or Portal Administrator roles:
select ROLEUSER, ROLENAME from PSROLEUSER where ROLENAME in ('PeopleSoft⇒
Administrator','Portal Administrator')
Run the UPG844PORTAL Application Engine program on your database. From the DOS command line, the
syntax is:
<PS_HOME>\bin\client\winx86\psae -CD <dbname> -CT DB2UNIX -CO <oprid> -CP⇒
<pswd> -R INSTALL -AI UPG844PORTAL
Use the values for the database name and user ID that you entered on the startup tab of the Configuration Manager
for <dbname> and <oprid>, respectively. However, be aware that <pswd> is not the same as the connect
password that you entered on the Configuration Manager startup tab. Enter a value for <pswd> that is the
password you want to be associated with the <oprid>.
See "Setting Up the Install Workstation."
You may see some of the following errors when running this Application Engine program:
•
Not authorized CRef: <Portal Object Name> (95,5032).
This means that you do not have proper privileges to run this conversion. The user ID that you are using to run
this conversion needs to have Portal Administrator permissions.

This is not a fatal error. It may be caused by a content reference that contains invalid URL text and indicates
that there was an internal error writing to the security table. The invalid URL text may be pointing to a
component or script that does not exist in the database. If you receive this error, search the Patches and
Downloads section of My Oracle Support for Required at Install patches for your application and apply the
patches after installing your database.
•
Cref <Portal Object Name> points to Menu: <Menu Name>, Component
<Component Name> which doesn't exist. (96,80).
The content reference is pointing to an invalid Menu/Component combination. If you receive this error, search
the Patches and Updates section of My Oracle Support for Required at Install patches for your application and
apply the patches after installing your database.
See "Preparing for Installation," Reviewing Patches and Updates Required at Installation.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology.
Converting Setup Manager
Perform this step if the application database you are installing is PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.45 or earlier. The
application engine program UPGPTSMDAT upgrades Setup Manager Version 1 (shipped with Fin SCM 8.8,
CRM 8.9, and with HCM 8.9) to Setup Manager Version 2 (shipped with PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.46 and
above). The program moves all data from Setup Manager Version 1 tables to Version 2 tables.
The application engine program was designed so that it can be run in any database, and can be rerun in the same
database. In either case, it will determine if there is data to convert and run as appropriate. For detailed
information, see comments attached to the Steps and Actions in this Application Engine Program within
Application Designer. This program must be run by a PeopleSoft user with PeopleSoft Administrator role.
Run the UPGPTSMDAT Application Engine program on your database. From the DOS command line, the syntax
is:
<PS_HOME>\bin\client\winx86\psae -CD <dbname> -CT DB2UNIX -CO <oprid> -CP⇒
<pswd> -R INSTALL -AI UPGPTSMDAT
Converting Navigation Collection and Pagelet Wizard Data
Perform this step if the application database you are installing is PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.45 or earlier. The
application engine program UPGPT846PP adds Navigation Collection and Pagelet Wizard data from the
Common Components and PeopleSoft Applications Portal storage tables into PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables.
The application engine program performs the following conversions:
1. Moves data from Common Components tables to PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables.
2. Moves data from PeopleSoft Applications Portal tables to PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables.
3. Updates the registry definitions to enable displaying Navigation pages.
4. Adds, updates, and deletes the Navigation Collections folders and content references in the portal registry to
the new structures.
5. Converts Pagelet Wizard definitions to the PeopleSoft PeopleTools Pagelet Wizard version.
6. Renames Navigation Collection and Pagelet Wizard portal registry attributes to the PeopleSoft PeopleTools
attribute names.
This program must be run by a PeopleSoft user with the Portal Administrator or PeopleSoft Administrator role.

Task 7-4: Installing a Multilingual PeopleTools System Database
This section discusses:
•
Understanding the Multilingual Database Project
•
Applying the Multilingual Database Project
•
Populating the Translated System Data
Understanding the Multilingual Database Project
The information in this section applies if you are installing a multilingual PeopleSoft PeopleTools System
database. If not, skip this task and go on to the task "Running VERSION Application Engine Program." If you are
installing an application database (for example, HCM, FSCM, EPM, and so on), you do not need to run this task.
If you are adding a new (Oracle-delivered) language to the PTSYS database, you must execute this step for that
language. For example, if you want to add Polish to your current multilingual database, you should install Polish
from PPLTLSML so you will get all objects. Using the PPLTLS84CURML project to "upgrade" your database
will not provide all the necessary objects.
If you are installing a PeopleSoft PeopleTools System database and you want it to be multilingual, you need to
perform the steps in the following section after the database has been loaded with Data Mover.
See Applying the Multilingual Database Project.
Note. When you log onto the multilingual database, be sure to select the base language of the database.

Creating a Shortcut to Run SQRs
Understanding Running SQR Reports
The instructions in this section describe how to run SQR reports from the client workstation. On the Microsoft
Windows client, you may prefer to create a shortcut to allow you to run the reports repeatedly. You can use these
instructions to run SQRs required in the upcoming task Checking the Database.
You can also choose to run SQR reports from the command line in console mode. Before running SQR from the
command line on Microsoft Windows operating systems, set PS_HOME from the prompt. For example:
set PS_HOME=C:\PT855
See Also
PeopleTools: SQR for PeopleSoft Developers
PeopleTools: SQR Language Reference for PeopleSoft
Task 7-6-1: Binding the dbcalls.bnd
You need to bind the dbcalls.bnd before running SQR reports.
On Microsoft Windows operating systems, the PeopleSoft installation installs one version of SQR that supports
both the CLI interface and the ODBC interface for DB2/LUW.
Note. The version of DB2, which SQR uses on Microsoft Windows and Linux, will try to bind dbcalls.bnd
automatically in some cases. To avoid possible errors if this does not occur, you must carry out this step.
To bind dbcalls.bnd:
1. Choose Start, Programs, IBM DB2, Command Window.
2. Connect to the database. For example,
C:\db2odbc9\BIN>db2 connect to PSDMO user dbxuser using dbxuser
3. Change to the directory where SQRW.exe resides, for example:
PS_HOME\bin\sqr\dbx\binw
4. From there, type
db2 bind dbcalls.bnd

Run and examine the SQR reports to verify that your database is complete.
See Running SQR Reports.
To verify that the database is complete, run the following SQR reports from the PS_HOME\sqr directory:
•
dddaudit.sqr
•
sysaudit.sqr
• swpaudit.sqr, if you plan to swap your base language
For further information about these reports, consult PeopleSoft product documentation. This documentation
includes specific information on how to interpret the reports and how to fix any errors found there.
It is good practice to run and read the audit reports, which include sysaudit, dddaudit, swpaudit, and alter audit,
after making changes such as applying patches, bundles, and upgrades to the database, to make sure that the tables
are internally and externally in synch. It is also a good idea to schedule regular maintenance, for example weekly,
in which you run and review the reports. You can find information on these audit reports in the PeopleTools:
Data Management product documentation.
See PeopleTools: Global Technology, "Running the Swap Audit Report."
Note. If any records show up in the VIEWS-2 or TABLE-3 section of dddaudit and are contained within the
PPLTLS84CURDEL project, you may safely drop these records using the SQL query tool for your platform.

Task 7-9: Running Alter Audit
Use the ALTER AUDIT process to check whether the PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables are synchronized with the
underlying SQL data tables in your database. This process compares the data structures of your database tables
with the PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables to uncover inconsistencies. The ALTER AUDIT process then reports its
findings. At this point of time in the install, we do not expect to see differences between the database structure
and the PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables.
Note. If your application database was delivered on the PeopleSoft PeopleTools release you are installing, this
task is optional.
Note. Triggers are always dropped and re-created during the alter process and will always show up in the
generated Alter Audit script. You can ignore the generated script for triggers.
To alter PeopleSoft PeopleTools tables:
1. Launch Application Designer and sign on to the installed database with a valid PeopleSoft user ID.

Prerequisites
•
Preparing the Application Server File System for a PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
•
Setting Up COBOL for Remote Call
•
Verifying Database Connectivity
•
Creating, Configuring, and Starting an Initial Application Server Domain
Understanding the Application Server
The information in this chapter is provided to help you configure your PeopleSoft application server.
Note. COBOL is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools or for PeopleSoft Applications that contain no COBOL
programs. Check the information on My Oracle Support, and your application-specific documentation, for the
details on whether your application requires COBOL.
Oracle supports a Microsoft Windows application server to use with any of our supported databases for the
PeopleSoft installation. For detailed information, consult the certification information on My Oracle Support. The
application server support can be found on the certification pages for PeopleSoft systems.
You can install the application server using either a "logical" or "physical" three-tier configuration.
•
Installing the application server on the same machine as the database server is known as a logical three-tier
configuration. For your initial PeopleSoft installation, Oracle suggests that you install a logical configuration
to simplify setup.
•
Installing the application server on a machine separate from the database server machine is known as a
physical three-tier configuration.
The configuration and log files for application server domains reside in PS_CFG_HOME. If you do not set a
PS_CFG_HOME environment variable before beginning the application server configuration, the system installs
it in a default location based on the current user's settings, as follows:
%USERPROFILE%\psft\pt\<peopletools_version>
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
Note. You can start application servers as a Windows service, which means that administrators no longer need to
manually start each application server that runs on a Windows machine.

Prerequisites
Before beginning this procedure, you should have completed the following tasks:
•
Installed your application server.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer," Planning Your Initial Configuration.
•
Installed the supported version of Oracle Tuxedo
See "Installing Additional Components."
•
Granted authorization to a PeopleSoft user ID to start the application server.
The database configuration procedure includes a step for setting up the user ID with authorization to start the
application server. See the application-specific installation instructions for information on the user IDs for
your PeopleSoft application. See the PeopleTools: Security Administration product documentation for
information on PeopleSoft PeopleTools delivered user profiles.
See "Creating a Database on UNIX," Running the Database Configuration Wizard.
See "Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX," Creating Data Mover Import Scripts.
•
Run the following SQL statements on your database server to review and if needed, update the
PSCLASSDEFN table:
SELECT CLASSID, STARTAPPSERVER FROM PSCLASSDEFN
WHERE CLASSID IN (SELECT OPRCLASS FROM PSOPRCLS WHERE OPRID='<OPRID>')
UPDATE PSCLASSDEFN SET STARTAPPSERVER=1 WHERE CLASSID='<CLASSID>'
Note. Installers typically use VP1 or PS to test the application server. If these users are deleted or their passwords
are changed, the application server will no longer be available. To avoid this problem, you can set up a new
operator (called PSADMIN or PSASID, for instance) with privileges to start the application server. If you do this,
you can use the new operator for your application servers and you won't need to change the password each time
VP1 or PS is changed.

Configuring the Application Server on Windows
Task 8A-1: Preparing the Application Server File System for a
PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
When performing the installation of the separate upgrade PS_HOME (which is different than your old release
PS_HOME), you may configure your Application Server at this point in time of the installation. Do not boot your
Application Server until directed to do so within the upgrade. If you are installing into an old PS_HOME or
PS_CFG_HOME after completing a PeopleTools-only upgrade, review your old PS_HOME or PS_CFG_HOME
for configuration files that you may want to reuse for the new PeopleSoft PeopleTools release.
See Also
"Preparing for Installation," Preparing for the PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
Task 8A-2: Setting Up COBOL for Remote Call
Remote Call is a PeopleCode feature that launches a COBOL program from an application server, PeopleCode
program or a batch Application Engine PeopleCode program and waits for it to complete execution before
continuing. The execution of a COBOL program via Remote Call is completely independent of the Process
Scheduler. You need to set up a COBOL runtime environment and COBOL executables on the application server
to support Remote Call.
See "Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows."
Note. If your application does not contain COBOL programs, you do not need to purchase or compile COBOL.
Task 8A-3: Verifying Database Connectivity
Before continuing, it is critical to verify connectivity to the database that the application server domain will use.
To verify connectivity, connect to the database server from the application server using the native SQL tool on the
application server.
For DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, use the Command Center.

To create, configure, and start the application server domain:
1. Run the psadmin command.
You see the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu, as in this example:
-------------------------------PeopleSoft Server Administration
-------------------------------PS_CFG_HOME: C:\Users\JSMITH\psft\pt\8.55
PS_HOME: C:\PT8.55
PS_APP_HOME: C:\HR92

2) Process Scheduler
3) Search Server
4) Web (PIA) Server
5) Switch Config Home
6) Service Setup
7) Replicate Config Home
8) Refresh Config Home
q) Quit
Command to execute (1-8, q): 1
Note. Make sure you change the directory from the PS_HOME on the file server to the PS_HOME, or highlevel directory, on the application server.
2. Depending on your environment, you may see a message after the initial menu, which indicates that
PSADMIN has modified the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file with the current PS_HOME
location:
*********************************************************
PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file has been updated. You should use the Config Home Refresh feature in PSAdmin to ensure that all of your domains are current. Alternatively, you may recreate all of your domains. Please press any key to continue...
***********************************************************
This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.
Continue with the next step.

Task 8A-4-3: Importing an Existing Application Server Domain
Configuration
If you have an existing application server configuration for a previous PeopleSoft PeopleTools release, you can
import it to create a new domain. You can import an existing domain configuration by specifying a file or by
specifying the path to an existing domain. To import from a file, you must use the psappsrv.cfg file found inside
an existing application server domain folder (you must specify the full path to psappsrv.cfg). This file can be
located anywhere in the file system, but must be named psappsrv.cfg. To import from an existing domain
configuration that you created in PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, you must specify PS_CFG_HOME and the name
of an existing application server domain. (If you are importing a domain from a release before PeopleSoft
PeopleTools 8.50, note that the domains were created in PS_HOME, and that is the path that you should provide.)
To import an existing application server domain configuration:
1. Go to the PS_HOME\appserv directory and run the psadmin command.
You see the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu, as in this example:
-------------------------------PeopleSoft Server Administration
-------------------------------PS_CFG_HOME: C:\Users\JSMITH\psft\pt\8.55
PS_HOME: C:\PT8.55
PS_APP_HOME: C:\HR92
1) Application Server
2) Process Scheduler
3) Search Server
4) Web (PIA) Server
5) Switch Config Home
6) Service Setup
7) Replicate Config Home
8) Refresh Config Home
q) Quit
Command to execute (1-8, q): 1
The PS_CONFIG_HOME location, also referred to as Config Home, corresponds to the current working
directory. For information on how Config Home is set, see the PeopleTools: System and Server
Administration product documentation.
Note. Make sure you change the directory from the PS_HOME on the file server to the PS_HOME on the
application server.
2. Depending on your environment, you may see a message after the initial menu, which indicates that
PSADMIN has modified the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file with the current PS_HOME
location:
*********************************************************
PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file has been updated. You should use the Config Home Refresh feature in PSAdmin to ensure that all of your domains are current. Alternatively, you may recreate all of your domains. Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.

1) HRDBA
2) HRDBB
Select domain number to import: 1
Enter a name for new domain: HRDMO
After you create the domain, continue to the next task to verify that the imported configuration parameters are
appropriate for the newly created domain. You may need to change the following values:
•
DBName
DBName can be the same or different, depending on which database the application server needs to point to.
•
DBType
DBType depends on the database type of DBName.
•
UserId and UserPswd
UserId and UserPswd are the user's choice.
•
Workstation Listener Port
Workstation Listener Port will need to be modified if the old domain will be up and running in the same
machine.
•
Jolt Listener Port
Jolt Listener Port will also need a different number if the old domain will be up and running in the same
machine.
•
Jolt Relay Adapter Listener Port
Jolt Relay Adapter Listener Port will need a different number if the old domain will be up and running in the
same machine, and will be using Jolt Relay Adapter.
Task 8A-4-4: Setting Up a Custom Application Server Domain Configuration
The Quick-configure menu is initially displayed when you choose to configure your domain. This menu is
intended for the commonly adjusted parameters—those most likely to change from domain to domain. However,
there are additional configuration parameters that are not available through the Quick-configure menu. For such
configuration parameters, you must use the Custom Configuration option, which you can access from the Quickconfigure menu. Feel free to skip this procedure if you have already created and configured your Application
Server using the Quick-configure menu and want to move forward.
The following steps assume you will be using PSADMIN to specify parameter settings.

Chapter 8A
To reconfigure an application server domain:
1. Go to the PS_HOME\appserv directory and run the psadmin command.
Note. Make sure you change the directory from the PS_HOME on the file server to the PS_HOME on the
application server.
2. Depending on your environment, you may see a message after the initial menu, which indicates that
PSADMIN has modified the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file with the current PS_HOME
location:

This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.
Continue with the next step.
3. Specify 1 for Application Server and press ENTER.
4. Specify 1 for Administer a domain and press ENTER.
5. Select the domain to administer and press ENTER.
6. Specify 4 for Configure this domain and press ENTER.
The option Configure this domain performs the following tasks:
•
Shuts down the application server, if it is running. (Shutdown is required since the binary file PSTUXCFG
must be deleted and re-created to enable new configuration values. If there are no processes running when
shutdown is attempted, an error will be displayed but the script continues on. This is normal.)
•
Initiates an interactive dialog, prompting for configuration parameters.
•
Updates psappsrv.cfg, generates psappsrv.ubb, and internally invokes Tuxedo's tmloadcf executable to
create binary file PSTUXCFG used during the domain boot process.
7. Specify 15 for Custom Configuration and press ENTER.
8. Respond to this prompt:
Do you want to change any config values (y/n):
•
Specify y to start an interactive dialog to change or examine parameter values, as described in the next
step.
Oracle recommends this option for more experienced users.
•
Specify n if you have already edited psappsrv.cfg, skip the next step, and continue with the step to select
server process options.
9. Complete the interactive dialog to specify configuration parameters.
Configuration parameters are grouped into sections. For each section, you are asked whether you want to
272
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 8A
Configuring the Application Server on Windows
change any parameters in that section, as in the following example:
Values for config section - Startup
DBName=
DBType=
UserId=
UserPswd=
ConnectId=
ConnectPswd=
ServerName=
StandbyDBName=
StandbyDBType=
StandbyUserId=
StandbyUserPswd=
InMemoryDBName=
InMemoryDBType=
Do you want to change any values (y/n)? [n]: y
•
Specify y to change any parameter values for the current configuration section displayed.
You are prompted for each parameter value. Either specify a new value, or press ENTER to accept the
default if applicable. After pressing ENTER, you are positioned at the next parameter in that section.
When you are done with that section, you are again asked whether you want to re-edit any of the values
you changed.
•
Enter the user ID and user password that has security to start the application server. All application
databases are delivered with one or more application server security users, usually PS or VP1.
The password you enter is hidden by masking characters.
•
The parameters StandbyDBName, StandbyDBType, StandbyUserId, and StandbyUserPswd, are used for a
standby database in an Oracle environment.
See PeopleTools: Data Management, "Implementing Oracle Active Data Guard."
•
The parameters InMemoryDBName and InMemoryDBType are reserved for internal use.
•
The WSL, JSL, and JRAD port numbers, which are found in other sections of the configuration
parameters, have default values of 7000, 9000, and 9100, respectively. These values must be unique for
each application server domain. You may alter the port values if necessary to ensure that they are unique
•
If you do not wish to change any values, specify n and you will be prompted for the next configuration
section.
Note. When setting up your application server, make a note of the values you use for Database Name,
Application Server Name (the machine name), and JSL Port. You will need to use these same values when
installing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture.
See PeopleTools: System and Server Administration.
10. Select server process options.
At this point, you will be prompted to select server process options. If this is your initial installation, we
suggest you accept the defaults. A message similar to this appears:
Setting Log Directory to the default... [PS_SERVDIR\LOGS]
Configuration file successfully created.
Loading new configuration...
The message "Loading new configuration" indicates that PSADMIN is generating a binary file named
PSTUXCFG, which is used to boot the application server. At this point, your application server should be

Chapter 8A
properly configured.
Task 8A-4-5: Troubleshooting Common Errors
For troubleshooting help, you can access a log file through the PSADMIN PeopleSoft Domain Administration
menu. The following list includes possible errors and troubleshooting tips.
•
Use PSADMIN menu option 6 for Edit configuration/log files menu to check for errors in
<PS_CFG_HOME>\appserv\<domain>\LOGS\APPSRV_mmdd.log and <PS_CFG_HOME>\appserv\
<domain>\LOGS\TUXLOG.mmddyy.
•
If a PeopleSoft server such as PSAPPSRV fails, examine your configuration parameters. The failure of the
PSAPPSRV process is often signalled by the message "Assume failed"—which means the process has failed
to start. Check the SIGNON section for misspelled or invalid database name, an invalid or unauthorized
OprId, or ConnectId or ServerName is missing or invalid. Finally, make sure the database connectivity is set
correctly.
•
If a WSL (or JSL) fails to start, try specifying another port number (it may be in use already by another
application server domain process).
•
If you are unable to start the BBL, check that your Tuxedo is installed fully and that the directory really exists.
•
If the installation includes more than one application server domain on a single machine, before booting the
second domain, adjust the REN server configuration to avoid conflict in one of these ways:
•
Use PSADMIN to disable Event Notification (option 8 on the Quick-configure menu) for the second and
subsequent app server domains.
•
Change default_http_port to a value other than 7180.

Understanding the Application Server
The information in this chapter is provided to help you configure your PeopleSoft application server.
Note. COBOL is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools or for PeopleSoft Applications that contain no COBOL
programs. Check the information on My Oracle Support, and your application-specific documentation, for the
details on whether your application requires COBOL.
Oracle supports application servers for the PeopleSoft installation on several UNIX and Linux operating system
platforms. For detailed information, consult the certification information on My Oracle Support. The application
server support can be found on the certification pages for PeopleSoft systems.
You can install the application server using either a "logical" or "physical" three-tier configuration.
•
Installing the application server on the same machine as the database server is known as a logical three-tier
configuration. For your initial PeopleSoft installation, Oracle suggests that you install a logical configuration
to simplify setup.
•
Installing the application server on a machine separate from the database server machine is known as a
physical three-tier configuration.
The configuration and log files for application server domains reside in PS_CFG_HOME. If you do not set a
PS_CFG_HOME environment variable before beginning the application server configuration, the system installs
it in a default location based on the current user's settings, as follows:
$HOME/psft/pt/<peopletools_version>

"Setting Up the Install Workstation"
"Installing and Compiling COBOL on UNIX"
Understanding the Application Server Domain Processes
On most platforms (IBM AIX, Oracle Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium) no changes are required from the
system defaults, in order to allow the "small" and "development" domains that are shipped with PeopleSoft
PeopleTools to boot successfully.
Refer to the performance documentation for guidance in configuring your system to run larger domains. That
document describes the suggested minimum kernel settings for running PeopleSoft PeopleTools in a real-world
environment.
See PeopleTools Performance Guidelines Red Paper on My Oracle Support (search for the article title).
Permanently changing system-wide parameters generally requires root privileges, and any changes to the kernel
configuration of your operating system should be done with care.
If you are installing on HP-UX 11.31 operating systems, be aware that hosts with machine names longer than 8
characters require the HP-UX kernel configuration uname_eoverflow to be set to 0 (zero).
Prerequisites
Before beginning this procedure, you should have completed the following tasks:
•
Installed your application server.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer," Planning Your Initial Configuration.
•
Installed the supported version of Oracle Tuxedo
See "Installing Additional Components."
•
Granted authorization to a PeopleSoft user ID to start the application server.
The database configuration procedure includes a step for setting up the user ID with authorization to start the
application server. See the application-specific installation instructions for information on the user IDs for
your PeopleSoft application. See the PeopleTools: Security Administration product documentation for
information on PeopleSoft PeopleTools delivered user profiles.
See "Creating a Database on UNIX," Running the Database Configuration Wizard.
See "Creating a Database Manually on Microsoft Windows or UNIX," Creating Data Mover Import Scripts.
•
Run the following SQL statements on your database server to review and if needed, update the
PSCLASSDEFN table:
SELECT CLASSID, STARTAPPSERVER FROM PSCLASSDEFN
WHERE CLASSID IN (SELECT OPRCLASS FROM PSOPRCLS WHERE OPRID='<OPRID>')
276
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 8B
Configuring the Application Server on UNIX
UPDATE PSCLASSDEFN SET STARTAPPSERVER=1 WHERE CLASSID='<CLASSID>'
Note. Installers typically use VP1 or PS to test the application server. If these users are deleted or their passwords
are changed, the application server will no longer be available. To avoid this problem, you can set up a new
operator (called PSADMIN or PSASID, for instance) with privileges to start the application server. If you do this,
you can use the new operator for your application servers and you won't need to change the password each time
VP1 or PS is changed.
Task 8B-1: Preparing the Application Server File System for a
PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
When performing the installation of the separate upgrade PS_HOME (which is different than your old release
PS_HOME), you may configure your Application Server at this point in time of the installation. Do not boot your
Application Server until directed to do so within the upgrade. If you are installing into an old PS_HOME or
PS_CFG_HOME after completing a PeopleTools-only upgrade, review your old PS_HOME or PS_CFG_HOME
for configuration files that you may want to reuse for the new PeopleSoft PeopleTools release.
See Also
"Preparing for Installation," Preparing for the PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
Task 8B-2: Setting Environment Variables
Telnet to your UNIX system. Log in and ensure the following environment variables are set appropriately.
Note. The environment variables for Tuxedo must be set explicitly; they are not set by running psconfig.sh. These
can be also set using the .profile file in the user's home directory.
•
$TUXDIR must be set to the correct Oracle Tuxedo installation directory. For example:
TUXDIR=/home/user/Oracle/tuxedo12cR1; export TUXDIR
•
$TUXDIR/lib must be prepended to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, or SHLIB_PATH, whichever is
appropriate for your platform. For example:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$TUXDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
•
$TUXDIR/bin must be prepended to PATH. For example:
PATH=$TUXDIR/bin:$PATH; export PATH
One method to ensure that the following PeopleSoft environment variables are set is to source psconfig.sh. Go to
the PS_HOME directory, and enter the following command:
. ./psconfig.sh
Note. After running psconfig.sh, you can invoke the psadmin utility from any location.
Alternatively you can make sure the following environment variables are set in the .profile file in the user's home
directory:
•
$COBDIR must be set to the Server Express installation directory. For example:
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
277
Configuring the Application Server on UNIX
Chapter 8B
COBDIR=/cobol/prod/svrexp-5.1_wp11-64bit;export COBDIR
Note. If your application does not contain COBOL programs, you do not need to set the $COBDIR
environment variables.
•
$COBDIR/bin must be appended to the PATH; for example:
PATH=$PATH:$COBDIR/bin;export PATH
•
$COBDIR/lib must be appended to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, or SHLIB_PATH, whichever is
appropriate for your platform. For example:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$COBDIR/lib;export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
LIBPATH=$LIBPATH:$COBDIR/lib;export LIBPATH
SHLIB_PATH=$SHLIB_PATH:$COBDIR/lib;export SHLIB_PATH
To set the required DB2/LUW environment, run db2profile. Go to the <DB2 INSTANCE DIRECTORY>/sqllib
directory, and enter the following command:
. ./db2profile
Ensure that the DB2 instance being used, is a 64-bit instance.
See "Creating a Database on UNIX," Fulfilling PeopleSoft Database Configuration Wizard Prerequisites.
Task 8B-3: Setting Up COBOL for Remote Call
Remote Call is a PeopleCode feature that launches a COBOL program from an application server, PeopleCode
program or a batch Application Engine PeopleCode program and waits for it to complete execution before
continuing. The execution of a COBOL program via Remote Call is completely independent of the Process
Scheduler. You need to set up a COBOL runtime environment and COBOL executables on the application server
to support Remote Call.
See "Installing and Compiling COBOL on UNIX."
Note. If your application does not contain COBOL programs, you do not need to purchase or compile COBOL.
Task 8B-4: Verifying Database Connectivity
Before continuing, it is critical to verify connectivity to the database that the application server domain will use.
To verify connectivity, connect to the database server from the application server using the native SQL tool on the
application server.
For DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, use the Command Center.

PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file has been updated. You should use the Config Home Refresh feature in PSAdmin to ensure that all of your domains are current. Alternatively, you may recreate all of your domains. Please press any key to continue...
***********************************************************
This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.

c. Enter q to quit the PeopleSoft Domain Administration Menu.
Task 8B-5-2: Testing the Three-Tier Connection
If you get an error message when you try to sign in to the Application Server in Application Designer (that is,
three-tier mode), it may be due to an incorrect server name or port number, because the database server is not
running, or because the application server was not booted. To test a three-tier connection from the PeopleTools
Development Environment (the Windows-based client):
1. Start Configuration Manager with one of these methods:
•
On Microsoft Windows 7, select Start, Programs, PeopleTools 8.55, Configuration Manager.
•
On Microsoft Windows 8 or 2012 R2, access the Apps screen and navigate to PeopleTools 8.55,
Configuration Manager.
• Run PS_HOME\bin\client\winx86\pscfg.exe.
2. Select the Profile Tab. Highlight Default and select Edit.
3. On the Edit Profile dialog box, select Application Server as the Connection Type.
4. Enter values for these parameters:
•
Application Server Name
•
Machine Name or IP Address
•
Port Number (WSL)
•
Domain Connection Password and Domain Connection Password (confirm)
Specify a value for the password, and repeat your entry for confirmation. The password must be 8
characters or less.

If you see the following error message when you try to sign in to the Application Server in Application Designer:
Network API: "Could not connect to application server 'Application Server⇒
Name' Make sure the PeopleTools authentication server (PSAUTH) is booted."
This may indicate a problem with the Domain Connection Password. For example, if the password set in the
Application Server configuration file does not match the value in Configuration Manager, you may get this error
message when you sign in to Application Designer in three-tier mode. Check the Application Server logs for more
information.
Task 8B-5-3: Importing an Existing Application Server Domain
Configuration
If you have an existing application server configuration for a previous PeopleSoft PeopleTools release, you can
import it to create a new domain. You can import an existing domain configuration by specifying a file or by
specifying the path to an existing domain. To import from a file, you must use the psappsrv.cfg file found inside
an existing application server domain folder (you must specify the full path to psappsrv.cfg). This file can be
located anywhere in the file system, but must be named psappsrv.cfg. To import from an existing domain
configuration that you created in PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, you must specify PS_CFG_HOME and the name
of an existing application server domain. (If you are importing a domain from a release before PeopleSoft
PeopleTools 8.50, note that the domains were created in PS_HOME, and that is the path that you should provide.)

PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file has been updated. You should use the Config Home Refresh feature in PSAdmin to ensure that all of your domains are current. Alternatively, you may recreate all of your domains. Please press any key to continue...
***********************************************************
This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.

After you create the domain, continue to the next task to verify that the imported configuration parameters are
appropriate for the newly created domain. You may need to change the following values:
•
DBName
DBName can be the same or different, depending on which database the application server needs to point to.
•
DBType
DBType depends on the database type of DBName.
•

Workstation Listener Port will need to be modified if the old domain will be up and running in the same
machine.
•
Jolt Listener Port
Jolt Listener Port will also need a different number if the old domain will be up and running in the same
machine.
•
Jolt Relay Adapter Listener Port
Jolt Relay Adapter Listener Port will need a different number if the old domain will be up and running in the
same machine, and will be using Jolt Relay Adapter.
Task 8B-5-4: Setting Up a Custom Application Server Domain Configuration
The Quick-configure menu is initially displayed when you choose to configure your domain. This menu is
intended for the commonly adjusted parameters—those most likely to change from domain to domain. However,
there are additional configuration parameters that are not available through the Quick-configure menu. For such
configuration parameters, you must use the Custom Configuration option, which you can access from the Quickconfigure menu. Feel free to skip this procedure if you have already created and configured your Application
Server using the Quick-configure menu and want to move forward.
The following steps assume you will be using PSADMIN to specify parameter settings.
To reconfigure an application server domain:
1. Run the psadmin command.
2. Depending on your environment, you may see a message after the initial menu, which indicates that
PSADMIN has modified the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file with the current PS_HOME
location:

You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.
Continue with the next step.
3. Specify 1 for Application Server and press ENTER.
4. Specify 1 for Administer a domain and press ENTER.
5. Select the domain to administer and press ENTER.
6. Specify 4 for Configure this domain and press ENTER.
The option Configure this domain performs the following tasks:
•
Shuts down the application server, if it is running. (Shutdown is required since the binary file PSTUXCFG
must be deleted and re-created to enable new configuration values. If there are no processes running when
shutdown is attempted, an error will be displayed but the script continues on. This is normal.)
•
Initiates an interactive dialog, prompting for configuration parameters.
•
Updates psappsrv.cfg, generates psappsrv.ubb, and internally invokes Tuxedo's tmloadcf executable to
create binary file PSTUXCFG used during the domain boot process.
7. Specify 15 for Custom Configuration and press ENTER.
8. Respond to this prompt:
Do you want to change any config values (y/n):
•
Specify y to start an interactive dialog to change or examine parameter values, as described in the next
step.
Oracle recommends this option for more experienced users.
•
Specify n if you have already edited psappsrv.cfg, skip the next step, and continue with the step to select
server process options.
9. Complete the interactive dialog to specify configuration parameters.
Configuration parameters are grouped into sections. For each section, you are asked whether you want to
change any parameters in that section, as in the following example:
Values for config section - Startup
DBName=
DBType=
UserId=
UserPswd=
ConnectId=
ConnectPswd=
ServerName=
StandbyDBName=
StandbyDBType=
StandbyUserId=
StandbyUserPswd=
InMemoryDBName=
InMemoryDBType=
Do you want to change any values (y/n)? [n]: y
•
Specify y to change any parameter values for the current configuration section displayed.
You are prompted for each parameter value. Either specify a new value, or press ENTER to accept the
default if applicable. After pressing ENTER, you are positioned at the next parameter in that section.
When you are done with that section, you are again asked whether you want to re-edit any of the values
you changed.

Enter the user ID and user password that has security to start the application server. All application
databases are delivered with one or more application server security users, usually PS or VP1.
The password you enter is hidden by masking characters.
•
The parameters StandbyDBName, StandbyDBType, StandbyUserId, and StandbyUserPswd, are used for a
standby database in an Oracle environment.
See PeopleTools: Data Management, "Implementing Oracle Active Data Guard."
•
The parameters InMemoryDBName and InMemoryDBType are reserved for internal use.
•
The WSL, JSL, and JRAD port numbers, which are found in other sections of the configuration
parameters, have default values of 7000, 9000, and 9100, respectively. These values must be unique for
each application server domain. You may alter the port values if necessary to ensure that they are unique
•
If you do not wish to change any values, specify n and you will be prompted for the next configuration
section.
Note. When setting up your application server, make a note of the values you use for Database Name,
Application Server Name (the machine name), and JSL Port. You will need to use these same values when
installing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture.
See PeopleTools: System and Server Administration.
10. Select server process options.
At this point, you will be prompted to select server process options. If this is your initial installation, we
suggest you accept the defaults. A message similar to this appears:
Setting Log Directory to the default... [PS_SERVDIR/LOGS]
Configuration file successfully created.
Loading new configuration...
The message "Loading new configuration" indicates that PSADMIN is generating a binary file named
PSTUXCFG, which is used to boot the application server. At this point, your application server should be
properly configured.
Task 8B-5-5: Troubleshooting Common Errors
For troubleshooting help, you can access a log file through the PSADMIN PeopleSoft Domain Administration
menu. The following list includes possible errors and troubleshooting tips.
•
Use the PSADMIN PeopleSoft Domain Administration menu option 6 for Edit configuration/log files menu to
check for errors in <PS_CFG_HOME>/appserv/<domain>/LOGS/APPSRV_mmdd.LOG and
<PS_CFG_HOME>/appserv/<domain>/LOGS/TUXLOG.mmddyy.
•
If a PeopleSoft server such as PSAPPSRV fails, examine your configuration parameters. The failure of the
PSAPPSRV process is often signalled by the message "Assume failed"—which means the process has failed
to start. Check the SIGNON section for misspelled or invalid database name, an invalid or unauthorized
OprId, or ConnectId or ServerName is missing or invalid. Finally, make sure the database connectivity is set
correctly.
•
If a WSL (or JSL) fails to start, try specifying another port number (it may be in use already by another
application server domain process).
•
If you are unable to start the BBL, check that your Tuxedo is installed fully and that the directory really exists.
•
If the installation includes more than one application server domain on a single machine, before booting the
second domain, adjust the REN server configuration to avoid conflict in one of these ways:
•
288
Use PSADMIN to disable Event Notification (option 8 on the Quick-configure menu) for the second and

Chapter 8B
Configuring the Application Server on UNIX
subsequent app server domains.
•
•
Change default_http_port to a value other than 7180.
Check that you do not have older Tuxedo releases prepended in your PATH or runtime library (LIBPATH,
SHLIB_PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, depending on the UNIX operating system).

Understanding PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
This chapter explains how to install and configure the components of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
(PIA) in GUI mode. It includes instructions for installing the PeopleSoft files on Oracle WebLogic and IBM
WebSphere. Only complete the instructions for the web server product that you installed.
Note. See the chapter "Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in Console Mode" for instructions on
installing in silent mode on Microsoft Windows.
See "Installing Web Server Products."
The setup program for the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture is installed to the web server machine when you
run the PeopleSoft Installer and select the PeopleSoft Web Server option.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer."
Oracle only supports customer installations that use web servers that are certified for PeopleSoft PeopleTools.
You must install the web server before you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. Before you install
the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, you must also have configured an application server, as described in
the previous chapter.
The location where you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture is referred to in this documentation as
PIA_HOME. You can specify different locations for PS_HOME and PIA_HOME. After you complete the
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, you can locate the installation files in the directory
PIA_HOME/webserv.
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.51 and later, if you are setting up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture on a
Microsoft Windows platform, the directory and path that you specify for PIA_HOME may include spaces.
However, parentheses in the directory name (for example, "C:\Program Files (x86)") are not allowed for
PIA_HOME.

Setting Up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture in GUI Mode
Chapter 9A
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
If your web server is on a different machine than your application server, you need to make sure you have JRE
installed on your web server to run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation.
The initial PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture setup automatically creates the default PeopleSoft site named ps.
In subsequent PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture setups, change the site name from ps to a unique value. We
recommend using the database name. This is handy for easy identification and ensures that the database web
server files are installed in a unique web site.
The URL that you use to invoke the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture must conform to ASN.1 specifications.
That is, it may contain only alphanumeric characters, dots ("."), or dashes ("-"). The URL must not begin or end
with a dot or dash, or contain consecutive dots (".."). If the URL includes more than one portion, separated by
dots, do not use a number to begin a segment if the other segments contain letters. For example,
"mycompany.second.country.com" is correct, but "mycompany.2nd.country.com" is wrong.
Review the following additional notes before beginning the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation:
•
If you want to connect between multiple application databases, you need to implement single signon.
•
If the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation encounters an error, it will indicate which log files to
refer to.
See "Installing Web Server Products."
•
The machine on which you run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture install must be running in 256 color
mode. This is not necessary for UNIX or console mode.
•
When installing on Microsoft Windows Server 2008, change the font size to the default value.
If you use the installer with a non-default font size, some of the fields on the installer windows may appear
with an incorrect length. To change the font size:
1. Right-click the desktop and select Personalize.
2. Click Adjust font size (DPI).
3. Select the default, 96 DPI.
The PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation includes the following products:
•
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. This product is the centerpiece of the PeopleSoft architecture that
enables users to work on a machine with only a supported browser installed. This option installs the servlets
required for deploying PeopleSoft Applications and for the PeopleSoft portal. The portal packs and PeopleSoft
Portal Solutions have their own installation instructions, which are available on My Oracle Support. For an
overview of the various types of portals, consult the PeopleTools: Portal Technology product documentation.
•
PeopleSoft Report Repository. This product works in conjunction with Process Scheduler to allow report
distribution over the web.
•
PeopleSoft Integration Gateway. This product is the entry and exit point for all messages to and from the
Integration Broker. Its Java-based Connector architecture allows asynchronous and synchronous messages to
be sent over a variety of standard protocols, many that are delivered at install, or through custom connectors.
Important! For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and later, review the product documentation concerning
security properties for Integration Gateway. When setting the properties in the integrationGateways.properties
file, the property secureFileKeystorePasswd must be encrypted, and the secureFileKeystorePath must be set.
See PeopleTools: Integration Broker Administration.
•
PeopleSoft CTI Console. This product works in conjunction with CTI vendor software to enable call center
agents to take advantage of browser-based teleset management and automatic population of application pages
with relevant data associated with incoming calls, such as customer or case details.

Environment Management Hub. The Environment Management hub is a web application that is installed with
the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture and portal. It is started along with the rest of the web applications
when the user boots the web server. You cannot start the Environment Management Hub on a server that is
configured to run HTTPS; in other words, if you plan to run Environment Management, your PIA server
needs to be configured in HTTP mode.

"Using the PeopleSoft Installer," Verifying Necessary Files for Installation on Windows
Using Authentication Domains in the PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture Installation
You have the option to specify an authentication domain when you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture on Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere.
Note. The authentication domain was referred to as the Authentication Token Domain in previous releases, and
that term is still seen in the software.
When an authentication domain is specified during the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, that
value gets used as the Cookie domain in the web server configuration. The main requirements when setting a
cookie domain are:
•
The host must have a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). The requirement that you must have a domain
name does not imply that you must have a DNS, but you do need some type of naming service such as DNS or
some managed ..\etc\hosts file that contains a list of the servers with their domain name.
•
The cookie domain value being set must begin with a dot (.ps.com is valid, ps.com is NOT valid).
•
The cookie domain value being set must contain at least 1 embedded dot (.ps.com is valid, .corp.ps.com is
valid, .com is NOT valid).
•
The cookie domain value can only be a single domain name. It cannot be a delimiter-separated list of
domains.
By default, the browser only sends cookies back to the machine that set the cookie. So if web server
crm.yourdomain.com sets a cookie, the browser will only send it back there. You can make the browser send the
single signon cookie to all servers at yourdomain.com by typing your domain name in the Authentication Token
Domain list box of web server crm.
Specifying the authentication domain may be necessary in certain cases. For example, if you plan to use the
PeopleSoft portal technology, be sure to read the supporting documentation on configuring the portal
environment, to determine whether setting the authentication domain is required for correct operation.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology.
Specify an authentication domain if you plan to run a REN Server. REN Servers are required for PeopleSoft
MultiChannel Framework, Reporting, and some PeopleSoft CRM applications supported by PeopleSoft
MultiChannel Framework.
See PeopleTools: MultiChannel Framework.

If you use the PeopleSoft Mobile Application Platform (MAP), you must specify the same authentication domain
during the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, for MAP, and for Integration Broker and integration
hubs.
See PeopleTools: Mobile Application Platform.
See PeopleTools: Integration Broker.
Task 9A-1: Preparing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
File System for a PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
When performing the installation of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture system using the separate upgrade
PS_HOME (which is different than your old release PS_HOME), you may install and configure your PeopleSoft
Pure Internet Architecture system at this point in time of the installation, but do not start your PeopleSoft Pure
Internet Architecture system until directed to do so within the upgrade.
If you are installing into an existing PS_HOME or PIA_HOME after completing a PeopleTools-only upgrade,
perform the following instructions to remove any obsolete files.
See "Preparing for Installation," Preparing for the PeopleTools-Only Upgrade.
Stop the web server before performing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation or uninstallation.
Depending on your web server platform, complete the following steps to clean up previous PeopleSoft Pure
Internet Architecture sites:
•
Oracle WebLogic
Shut down Oracle WebLogic and follow the uninstallation instructions in the old release PeopleSoft
PeopleTools installation guide for your database platform.
Alternatively, delete the contents of one of the following directories:
•
•
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.43.x or earlier: <weblogic_home>\wlserver6.1\config\<domain_name>\*
•
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.44.x to 8.49.x: <PS_HOME>\webserv\<domain_name>\*
• For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50.x or later: <PIA_HOME>\webserv\<domain_name>\*

Uninstalling the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture from IBM WebSphere
Prerequisites
The information in this section applies to the installation of PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture (PIA) on an
IBM WebSphere Application Server. PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 and later releases require a 64–bit IBM
WebSphere ND installation. PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 supports 64–bit IBM WebSphere 8.5.5.0. Review the
following points before beginning the installation:
•
Before installing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture on IBM WebSphere Application Server Network
Deployment, (referred to here as IBM WebSphere ND) you must have installed the IBM WebSphere ND
software.
•
Each IBM WebSphere Application Server runs one PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture application. If you
need to install more than one PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture application on your IBM WebSphere
Application Server, you must run the PIA installation again.
•
When installing PIA on IBM WebSphere ND, you must work with a local copy of the PIA installation
software; you cannot install remotely. If you are doing the installation on a machine other than the one on
which you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools, copy the PS_HOME\setup\PsMpPIAInstall directory to the local
machine and keep the same directory structure.
•
Both IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment and PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
need to be installed and deployed using the same user ID. Following this requirement avoids any security and
profile management issues.

The setup program for the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture is installed to the web server machine when you
run the PeopleSoft Installer and select the PeopleSoft Web Server option.
See "Using the PeopleSoft Installer."
Oracle only supports customer installations that use web servers that are certified for PeopleSoft PeopleTools.
You must install the web server before you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. Before you install
the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, you must also have configured an application server, as described in
the previous chapter.
The location where you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture is referred to in this documentation as
PIA_HOME. You can specify different locations for PS_HOME and PIA_HOME. After you complete the
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, you can locate the installation files in the directory
PIA_HOME/webserv.
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.51 and later, if you are setting up the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture on a
Microsoft Windows platform, the directory and path that you specify for PIA_HOME may include spaces.
However, parentheses in the directory name (for example, "C:\Program Files (x86)") are not allowed for
PIA_HOME.

See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
Before performing the steps in this chapter, verify that Sun's international version of JRE version 7 or higher is
properly installed on the system and its path is in the system's environment variable PATH.
If your web server is on a different machine than your application server, you need to make sure you have JRE
installed on your web server to run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation.
Note. If you encounter the error message "No Matching JVM," you need to specify the absolute path to the Java
Runtime Environment (JRE) executable (including the executable file name) using the –javahome command line
parameter; for example: <PS_HOME>/setup/PsMpPIAInstall/setup.sh -tempdir
<temporary_directory> -javahome <jredir>/bin/java.
The initial PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture setup automatically creates the default PeopleSoft site named ps.
In subsequent PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture setups, change the site name from ps to a unique value. We
recommend using the database name. This is handy for easy identification and ensures that the database web
server files are installed in a unique web site.
The URL that you use to invoke the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture must conform to ASN.1 specifications.
That is, it may contain only alphanumeric characters, dots ("."), or dashes ("-"). The URL must not begin or end
with a dot or dash, or contain consecutive dots (".."). If the URL includes more than one portion, separated by
dots, do not use a number to begin a segment if the other segments contain letters. For example,
"mycompany.second.country.com" is correct, but "mycompany.2nd.country.com" is wrong.
Review the following additional notes before beginning the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation:
•
If you want to connect between multiple application databases, you need to implement single signon.
•
If the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation encounters an error, it will indicate which log files to
refer to.
See "Installing Web Server Products."
•
The machine on which you run the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture install must be running in 256 color
mode. This is not necessary for UNIX or console mode.
The PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation includes the following products:
•
PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. This product is the centerpiece of the PeopleSoft architecture that
enables users to work on a machine with only a supported browser installed. This option installs the servlets
required for deploying PeopleSoft Applications and for the PeopleSoft portal. The portal packs and PeopleSoft
Portal Solutions have their own installation instructions, which are available on My Oracle Support. For an
overview of the various types of portals, consult the PeopleTools: Portal Technology product documentation.
•
PeopleSoft Report Repository. This product works in conjunction with Process Scheduler to allow report
distribution over the web.
•
PeopleSoft Integration Gateway. This product is the entry and exit point for all messages to and from the
Integration Broker. Its Java-based Connector architecture allows asynchronous and synchronous messages to
be sent over a variety of standard protocols, many that are delivered at install, or through custom connectors.
Important! For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and later, review the product documentation concerning
security properties for Integration Gateway. When setting the properties in the integrationGateways.properties
file, the property secureFileKeystorePasswd must be encrypted, and the secureFileKeystorePath must be set.
See PeopleTools: Integration Broker Administration.
•
PeopleSoft CTI Console. This product works in conjunction with CTI vendor software to enable call center
agents to take advantage of browser-based teleset management and automatic population of application pages
with relevant data associated with incoming calls, such as customer or case details.
See PeopleTools: MultiChannel Framework.

Environment Management Hub. The Environment Management hub is a web application that is installed with
the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture and portal. It is started along with the rest of the web applications
when the user boots the web server. You cannot start the Environment Management Hub on a server that is
configured to run HTTPS; in other words, if you plan to run Environment Management, your PIA server
needs to be configured in HTTP mode.

Using Authentication Domains in the PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture Installation
You have the option to specify an authentication domain when you install the PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture on Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere.
Note. The authentication domain was referred to as the Authentication Token Domain in previous releases, and
that term is still seen in the software.
When an authentication domain is specified during the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, that
value gets used as the Cookie domain in the web server configuration. The main requirements when setting a
cookie domain are:
•
The host must have a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). The requirement that you must have a domain
name does not imply that you must have a DNS, but you do need some type of naming service such as DNS or
some managed ../etc/hosts file that contains a list of the servers with their domain name.
•
The cookie domain value being set must begin with a dot (.ps.com is valid, ps.com is NOT valid).
•
The cookie domain value being set must contain at least 1 embedded dot (.ps.com is valid, .corp.ps.com is
valid, .com is NOT valid).
•
The cookie domain value can only be a single domain name. It cannot be a delimiter-separated list of
domains.
By default, the browser only sends cookies back to the machine that set the cookie. So if web server
crm.yourdomain.com sets a cookie, the browser will only send it back there. You can make the browser send the
single signon cookie to all servers at yourdomain.com by typing your domain name in the Authentication Token
Domain list box of web server crm.
Specifying the authentication domain may be necessary in certain cases. For example, if you plan to use the
PeopleSoft portal technology, be sure to read the supporting documentation on configuring the portal
environment, to determine whether setting the authentication domain is required for correct operation.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology.
Specify an authentication domain if you plan to run a REN Server. REN Servers are required for PeopleSoft
MultiChannel Framework, Reporting, and some PeopleSoft CRM applications supported by PeopleSoft
MultiChannel Framework.
See PeopleTools: MultiChannel Framework.

If you use the PeopleSoft Mobile Application Platform (MAP), you must specify the same authentication domain
during the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation, for MAP, and for Integration Broker and integration
hubs.
See PeopleTools: Mobile Application Platform.
See PeopleTools: Integration Broker.
Task 9B-1: Preparing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture
File System for a PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
When performing the installation of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture system using the separate upgrade
PS_HOME (which is different than your old release PS_HOME), you may install and configure your PeopleSoft
Pure Internet Architecture system at this point in time of the installation, but do not start your PeopleSoft Pure
Internet Architecture system until directed to do so within the upgrade.
If you are installing into an existing PS_HOME or PIA_HOME after completing a PeopleTools-only upgrade,
perform the following instructions to remove any obsolete files.
See "Preparing for Installation," Preparing for the PeopleTools-Only Upgrade.
Stop the web server before performing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture installation or uninstallation.
Depending on your web server platform, complete the following steps to clean up previous PeopleSoft Pure
Internet Architecture sites:
•
Oracle WebLogic
Shut down Oracle WebLogic and follow the uninstallation instructions in the old release PeopleSoft
PeopleTools installation guide for your database platform. Alternatively, delete the contents of one of the
following directories:
•
•

Prerequisites
•
Installing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture on IBM WebSphere Application Server ND
•
Uninstalling the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture from IBM WebSphere
Prerequisites
The information in this section applies to the installation of PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture (PIA) on an
IBM WebSphere Application Server. PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55 requires a 64-bit IBM WebSphere 8.5.5.0
installation. Review these points before you begin the installation:
•
Before installing the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture on IBM WebSphere Application Server, you must
have installed the IBM WebSphere ND software.
See "Installing Web Server Products," Installing IBM WebSphere Application Server.
•
Each IBM WebSphere Application Server runs one PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture application. If you
need to install more than one PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture application on your WebSphere
Application Server, you must run the PIA installation again.
•
When installing PIA on IBM WebSphere ND, you must work with a local copy of the PIA installation
software; you cannot install remotely. If you are doing the installation on a machine other than the one on
which you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools, copy the PS_HOME/setup/PsMpPIAInstall directory to the local
machine.

Understanding Report Distribution
The PeopleSoft PeopleTools Report Distribution lets you access reports and log files generated from process
requests run by a Process Scheduler Server Agent. Using the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, you can view
reports and log files from the web browser through the Report Manager or Process Monitor Detail page. Report
Distribution enables you to restrict access to these reports to authorized users based either on user ID or role ID.
This product also includes the Distribution Agent component, which runs on the same server as the Process
Scheduler Server Agent. The Distribution Agent, a process that runs concurrently with the Process Scheduler
Server Agent, transfers to the Report Repository files generated by process requests initiated by the Process
Scheduler Server Agent.
The Distribution Agent transfers files to the Report Repository when one of these criteria is true:
•
The Process Scheduler Server Agent is set up in the Server Definition to transfer all log files to the Report
Repository.
• The process request output destination type is Web/Window.
In either case, the Process Scheduler Server Agent inserts a row in the Report List table (PS_CDM_LIST). The
server agent then updates the distribution status for a process request to Posting upon completion of the program
associated with the process request. The distribution status of Posting signals that the files for the process request
are ready for transfer to the Report Repository. The Distribution Agent is notified by Process Scheduler for any
process requests that are ready for transferring. As part of the process to transfer files to the Report Repository,
the Distribution Agent performs the following steps:
•
Transfer files to the Report Repository. All the report and log files are transferred to the Report Repository.
For each process request transferred, a directory is created in the Report Repository using the following
format: \<database name\<date yyyymmdd>\<report id>. All the files for a process request are stored in this
directory.
•
Delete the directory from the Process Scheduler Agent's Log/Output directory. When the output destination
type specified for a process request is Web/Window, all the files and directory associated with the process
request are deleted from the Process Scheduler Log/Output directory after the files are transferred to the
Report Repository.
The following diagram illustrates the Process Scheduler and Report Repository architecture. The diagram
includes the following items:
•
The web browser gives access to the Process Request dialog and the Report or Log Viewer.
•
The Report Repository is part of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture.
Note. The PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture must be installed for Process Scheduler to be able to transfer
reports to the Report Repository.
•
The Process Scheduler Server includes the Process Scheduler Server Agent and the Distribution Agent.
•
The transfer protocol between Process Scheduler and the Report Repository may be FTP/FTPS, XCOPY,
HTTP/HTTPS, or SFTP.

Task 10A-3-1: Setting Up Single Signon to Navigate from PIA to Report
Repository
To view reports (log files or system files) from Report Repository, you need to pass the authentication. Report
Repository should be treated as a separate PeopleSoft application. To navigate from PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture (PIA) to Report Repository, you need to set up single signon to avoid getting a prompt for a second
signon. This section includes some considerations for setting up single signon to navigate from PIA to Report
Repository.
If Report Repository resides on the same web server as PIA, make sure your Local Message Node is set up to be a
"trusted" node for single signon for your system.
If Report Repository resides on a different web server than PIA, do the following:
•
Make sure your Local Message Node is set up to be a "trusted" node for single signon for your system.
•
Use a fully qualified domain name when addressing the web server for both PIA and Report Repository. For
example, enter http://<machineName>.peoplesoft.com/<site_name>/signon.html instead of http://
<machineName>/<site_name>/signon.html.
•
Specify the Authentication Domain for your application during installation. If you have multiple applications,
and you want them to employ single signon, it is important to specify the same Authentication Domain for all
applications.
See the information on implementing single signon in the PeopleTools: Security Administration product
documentation.
•
Set up single signon with a password, like this:
•
Choose PeopleTools, Integration Broker, Integration Setup, Nodes.
•
Click Search and then select the node marked as Default Local Node.
•
Select Password for the Authentication Option.
•
Enter a password of your choice.
•
Enter the password again in the Confirm Password field.
•
Enter the user ID for which you are setting up single signon in the Default User ID field.
•
Save the Node Definition.
•
Sign out from the PeopleSoft application.
•
Reboot your application server.

Task 10A-3-2: Determining the Transfer Protocol
We recommend using HTTP as your transfer protocol.
Before transferring the files to the Report Repository, you need to determine which transfer protocol to use. If you
have a Microsoft Windows Process Scheduler and a Microsoft Windows web server, you can use either an
XCOPY, FTP/FTPS, SFTP, or HTTP/HTTPS protocol. (If FTP information is not specified, Process Scheduler
will perform an XCOPY.) If you have a PeopleSoft Process Scheduler on Microsoft Windows and a UNIX web
server, you can use FTP/FTPS, SFTP, or HTTP/HTTPS.
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
413
Setting Up Process Scheduler on Windows
Chapter 10A
Note. If you are using FTP/FTPS or SFTP, the corresponding service must be set up in your web server.
Note. JRE is installed automatically on your Process Scheduler server.
Task 10A-3-3: Starting the Distribution Agent
The Distribution Agent is automatically started as another Oracle Tuxedo server when a Process Scheduler Server
is booted. If a Process Scheduler Server was set up without specifying a Distribution Node in the Server
Definition page, the Process Scheduler server will have a status in Process Monitor of "Running with No Report
Node." After a node is defined for the Process Scheduler server, in the next cycle the Process Scheduler server
checks the state of the system, and the Distribution Agent dynamically sets up its environment.

Defining ReportRepositoryPath
The ReportRepositoryPath specifies the location of a directory for the Report Repository. You can specify the
location for the Report Repository Path on the General page of the Web Profile during installation. If you do not
set the location in the Web Profile, the location given by ReportRepositoryPath in the configuration.properties file
is used for the default location. Note that the value entered for Report Repository Path in the Web Profile
overrides any entry in the configuration.properties file.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology, "Configuring Web Profiles."
Use the following formats to enter the name for the directory that you want to use for the ReportRepositoryPath.
The examples below give the default values. Note that you must use a forward slash ('/') in both cases:
•
Microsoft Windows: ReportRepositoryPath=c:/psreports
•
UNIX: ReportRepositoryPath=<user_home>/PeopleSoft Internet Architecture/psreports
For <user_home> substitute the home directory for the current user.

Defining the Report Node to Use FTP
If you use the FTP report node protocol, note that:
•
If your FTP server is a Microsoft Windows server, you may have to set up the FTP service.
•
The Distribution Agent will perform a validation after FTP has transferred files into the Report Repository by
sending a query request to the web server. For this task to be completed, it is critical that the value entered in
the URL is accurate. Verify that the machine name, port number, and site number that you specify are correct.
If this setup is not completed, the process request will get a status of NOT POSTED in the Process Monitor
Detail page and will log the message "Unable to verify files posted."
To define the report node to use FTP:
1. Select PeopleTools, Process Scheduler, Report Nodes.
2. Select Add a New Value, enter the Report node name, and click Add.

ACTIVEMODE
To enable active mode, add the ACTIVEMODE property
to the URL and set it to Y.
The default FTP connection mode is extended passive
mode.
ACTIVEPORTOPTION
This property can be used along with ACTIVEMODE.
When active mode is enabled, you can use
ACTIVEPORTOPTION to specify the IP address and port
on which the FTP server can be accessed. This is useful
when the server is behind a firewall. By default,
ACTIVEPORTOPTION uses the default IP address of
your system. If you want to use a particular IP address, set
the ACTIVEPORTOPTION value to either the full IP
address, a host name to resolve to an IP address, or a local
network interface name.
You can also specify a port range. For example:
10.176.147.111:10000-13000
ENABLEEPRT
This option can be used only with Active Mode. If Active
Mode is enabled and ENABLEEPRT is set to N, then the
system will use a PORT (IPv4) Active Mode connection.
By default, ENABLEEPRT is Y, if Active Mode is set to
Y.
EXTENDEDPASSIVEMODE
•
•
0: Disable EPSV
1: Enable EPSV
This property enables you to control whether extended
passive mode (EPSV) will be used by FTP.
EPSV is used by default. That is, by default, this value is
considered to be 1.
If the client fails to connect to the server with EPSV, then
the system will try passive mode (PASV). To use PASV
only, add EXTENDEDPASSIVEMODE to the URL
Properties and set it to 0.

•
FTP Address: Enter the machine name or the IP address of the Report Repository. If the name of the
machine is used, it must be included on a DNS server.
•
SSL Mode: Select Explicit or Implicit from the drop-down list.
These are two separate methods developed to invoke the client security for use with FTP clients. With the
explicit mode, FTPS-aware clients can invoke security with an FTPS-aware server without breaking
overall FTP functionality with non-FTPS-aware clients. The implicit method requires that all clients of the
FTPS server be aware that SSL is to be used on the session, and thus is incompatible with non-FTPSaware clients.

KEYSTOREPASSWORD
This property is required for FTPS and HTTPS
repositories. For attachments transferred from the
PeopleSoft system to the FTPS or HTTPS repository, the
system retrieves the key pair for the client certificate from
the digital certificate store and writes the pair to a file in
PKCS12 format with password protection. The value of
this property will be used as the password for the PKCS12
file.
The PKCS12 file enables connection and file transfer, and
it exists only temporarily in
<PS_SERVDIR>\files\<CERT ALIAS NAME> for the
duration of the file transfer. The system deletes the file
after the file transfer transaction.
Note. If the system fails to delete the certificate alias file,
a message will be written to the application server log. The
maximum number of files that can exist at any time is
equal to the total number of FTPS and HTTPS URL
identifiers defined in the system.

To set the appropriate Tuxedo environment variables, carry out these steps. (If you have already set these
variables on the machine you are using as your Process Scheduler Server, you can skip this task.)
See "Installing Additional Components," Installing Oracle Tuxedo on Microsoft Windows.
To set the variables:
1. Choose Start, Settings, Control Panel.
2. Double-click the System icon.
3. Make sure that the NLSPATH environment variable is set.
NLSPATH does not need to be explicitly set since Oracle Tuxedo sets NLSPATH in its own registry tree.
This value can be displayed using Control Panel, Tuxedo, on the Environment tab. However, the installation
of certain products, such as IBM DB2 connectivity (DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows)
sets NLSPATH to a value that causes Oracle Tuxedo to fail. The solution is to either set
NLSPATH=c:\tuxedo\locale\c, or to delete it entirely and let Oracle Tuxedo pick up the value from its registry
tree. If you are running DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the solution instead is to append the
c:\tuxedo\locale\c directory in the NLSPATH directory.
Search the Oracle Tuxedo documentation for additional information on NLSPATH.

Verifying the Process Scheduler Server Status
Understanding Process Scheduler Server Agent
For installation purposes, you can use predefined server names and other definitions. The predefined name that
you might use is as follows:
Server Name
Operating System
PSNT
Microsoft Windows
To test this, use processes already defined in your PeopleSoft database. To set up a new server definition in your
PeopleSoft database, refer to the PeopleTools: Process Scheduler product documentation.
Note. When creating multiple Process Scheduler Servers for the same database, each server must have a unique
server name. For example, two Process Scheduler Servers, both named PSNT, cannot run against the same
database.
Task 10A-5-1: Creating and Configuring a Process Scheduler Server
This section describes how to create and configure a Process Scheduler server.
You can set Process Scheduler configuration parameters either by using PSADMIN, which provides an interactive
dialog, or by editing the configuration file psprcs.cfg located in the PS_CFG_HOME\appserv\prcs\database name
directory. The following steps assume you are using PSADMIN to specify parameter settings.
Note. For Cube Builder users, if Essbase Server is installed on a different machine than the Process Scheduler,
you must install Essbase Client 11.1.2.1 on the process scheduler server machine. You must also ensure that the
%ESSBASEPATH% and %ARBORPATH% environmental variables are properly set in the Process Scheduler.
Note. If you use the configuration file psprcs.cfg, be aware that in the PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.49 release and
later, the section [Output Dest Exceptions] has been modified to trap metastring exceptions not only in the output
destination but in other process parameters as well. In this section the entry
OUTDEST_EXCEPT01=%ANYMETASTRING% has been changed to
PARAMETER_EXCEPT01=%ANYMETASTRING%.
To create and configure a Process Scheduler Server:
1. From PS_HOME\appserv on the batch server, type psadmin.
You see the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu, as in this example:
---------------------------------------------PeopleSoft Server Administration
--------------------------------PS_CONFIG_HOME C:\User\JSMITH\psft\pt\8.55
PS_HOME C:\PT8.55

You should use the Config Home Refresh feature in PSAdmin to ensure that all of your domains are current.
Alternatively, you may recreate all of your domains.
Please press any key to continue...
*************************************************************
This indicates that one of these situations exists:
•
The PS_CFG_HOME that you are working with was used previously from a different PS_HOME. In this
case, you should recreate any existing Application Server, Process Scheduler, Search, or PIA domains in
this PS_CFG_HOME.
•
You configured your environment such that PS_CFG_HOME is the same as PS_HOME. The first time
you use PSADMIN to create a domain, it updates the PS_CFG_HOME/peopletools.properties file.
Continue with the next step.
3. Select 2 for Process Scheduler in the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu.
4. In the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Administration menu, select 1 for Administer a domain.

Task 10A-6: Starting Process Scheduler as a Windows Service
(Optional)
You can start the Process Scheduler server as a Windows service. This means that administrators do not need to
manually boot each Process Scheduler server that runs on a Microsoft Windows machine. Instead, each time you
boot the Microsoft Windows server where the Process Scheduler server resides, the Process Scheduler Server will
boot automatically. You can also still manually boot Process Scheduler Servers on your Microsoft Windows
server.

Setting Up Process Scheduler on Windows
Chapter 10A
Note. If you have set up TUXDIR and TEMP as new SYSTEM variables, you need to reboot your machine
before any Windows services will pick up the value of these environment variables.
Note. You can also set up application servers and search servers as a Windows service using the instructions
provided here.
The following directions assume that the Process Scheduler is already configured on the Microsoft Windows
server.
To set up the Windows Service for a Process Scheduler Server:
1. Open the System utility within the Control Panel, and set the variables, listed with a brief explanation in the
following table, in the System Variables section of the Environment tab.
Note. Even if the following variables are in the User Variables section, they must also be in the System
Variables section because the Windows service will be started under the System Account.
Variable
Value
TEMP
Specify the location of the TEMP directory on the
Windows server, as in C:\TEMP.
TUXDIR
Specify the location of the Tuxedo directory on the
Windows server, as in C:\tuxedo.
2. Reboot the Windows computer if any changes or additions were made for the system variables.
3. Run the PeopleSoft PSADMIN utility (psadmin.exe in the PS_HOME\appserv directory), and press ENTER.
4. Select 6 for Service Setup from the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu.

Do you want to change any values (y/n)? [n]:
If you specify more than one Process Scheduler database, separate each entry with a comma.
Note. You can use PSADMIN to set up Process Scheduler Servers, application servers, or search servers as a
Windows service. The Windows Service psntsrv.exe automatically starts application servers, Process
Scheduler servers, and search servers that reside on the same Microsoft Windows machine. Occasionally,
psntsrv.exe would attempt to initiate a connection between an application server, Process Scheduler server, or
search server and a database on the same machine that was not ready to receive requests. As a result the
connection would fail. When you set up these servers as a Windows Service, you can specify a Service Start
Delay, in seconds, that elapses before a service attempts to start any application server domains, Process
Scheduler servers, or search servers. This allows the RDBMS to boot and become available to accept requests.
The default setting for the Service Start Delay parameter is 60 seconds.
Note. The NT Services section of the PSADMIN modifies the psntsrv.cfg file located in the PS_CFG_HOME\
appserv directory. You can edit this file manually by selecting 4, Edit Service Configuration File from the
PeopleSoft Services Administration menu. If you edit it, you need to delete and then install the service again.

10. Click Startup.
11. On the Service dialog in the Startup Type group, select Automatic, and in the Log On As group, select Local
System Account. Then click OK.
Note. The Log On As setting needs to reflect that which you set for your ORACLE ProcMGR
V12.1.3.0.0_VS2012 and Tlisten processes. Oracle recommends that you set these services to Local System
Account when you install Tuxedo. The Log On As value only affects the application server because Process
Scheduler runs independently from Tuxedo. See the chapter "Installing Additional Components" for more
information on installing Tuxedo, and refer to the chapter "Configuring the Application Server on Windows"
for the details on configuring the application server.
12. On the Services dialog, make sure the PeopleSoft service is selected, and click Start.
13. Use the Process Monitor to verify that the Process Scheduler Server is running. You can also use Task
Manager to verify that the executables involved with the service are running.
For the Process Scheduler, make sure that the psprcsrv.exe is running. If you have customized the name of
psprcsrv.exe, make sure the appropriate executable is running.

6. In the [Process Scheduler] section, edit the WINWORD entry so that it points to the directory where
winword.exe is installed—for example, "WINWORD=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE 12"
(include the quotes in the entry).
7. If spaces exist in the WINWORD path in the Process Scheduler configuration file (psprcs.cfg), Microsoft
Word reports will fail. You will need to modify the Process Type Definition and add quotes around the entry
in the Command Line field, for example " %%WINWORD%%\winword.exe".
8. Change the Microsoft Word macro security to allow macros to be run.
Start Microsoft Word and select Tools, Macro, Security. Select the Low security setting and click OK.
9. If you are running on Microsoft Windows 2008, modify your macros to include the following line:
Application.AutomationSecurity=msoAutomationSecurityLow
You can see an example by viewing the macros in PS_HOME\winword\Wordsamp.doc.
10. Make sure that all the servers (that is, Application Server and Process Scheduler servers) are running in the
context of the logged-in user, as WinWord is executed in the same context.

Prerequisites
•
Preparing the Process Scheduler File System for a PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
•
Setting Up Process Scheduler Security
•
Setting Up Process Scheduler to Transfer Reports and Logs to the Report Repository
•
Setting Up Process Scheduler Server Agent
Prerequisites
If your database runs on UNIX, you need to set up a Microsoft Windows batch environment on a Microsoft
Windows application server or on a dedicated Microsoft Windows workstation for Microsoft Windows-specific
batch processes, such as nVision reports, Cube Builder, or Microsoft Word. These processes are Microsoft
Windows-specific applications that cannot be executed by the Process Scheduler on UNIX.
Before setting up your Process Scheduler, you must:
•
Install Tuxedo.
See "Installing Additional Components."
•
Install database connectivity to be able to communicate with your database server (Process Scheduler requires
a direct connection to the database).
See "Preparing for Installation."
•
Set up the web server with the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, as described in the previous chapter.
This is required to set up the Process Scheduler to transfer reports or log files to the Report Repository.
•
Set up your COBOL batch environment if you need to run COBOL processes through Process Scheduler. If
the PeopleSoft modules purchased do not contain any COBOL modules, the COBOL run time libraries are not
required. Also, COBOL is not required for applications that contain no COBOL programs. Consult My Oracle
Support for the details on whether your application requires COBOL.
See "Preparing for Installation," Planning Your Initial Configuration.
•
Have both your application server and the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture started. In this chapter, you
must modify security options of the designated PeopleSoft user ID that will be used to boot up Process
Scheduler. This requires that the user ID's profile be modified through the User Security component. Please
refer to earlier chapters for the details on starting the application server and the PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture.
•
Refer to the following location for required DB2CLI.INI and registry settings.

Chapter 10B
In PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and later, the configuration and log files for Process Scheduler server domains
reside in PS_CFG_HOME. If you do not set a PS_CFG_HOME environment variable before beginning the
application server configuration, the system installs it in a default location based on the current user's settings, as
follows:
$HOME/psft/pt/<peopletools_version>
See "Preparing for Installation," Defining Installation Locations.
See the product documentation PeopleTools: System and Server Administration for more information on the
PS_CFG_HOME environment variable and working with server domain configuration.

My Oracle Support, Certifications
Task 10B-1: Preparing the Process Scheduler File System for a
PeopleTools-Only Upgrade
When performing the installation of the separate upgrade PS_HOME or PS_CFG_HOME (which is different than
your old release PS_HOME), you may configure your Process Scheduler at this point in time of the installation,
but do not boot your Process Scheduler until directed to do so within the upgrade.
If you are installing into an existing PS_HOME or PS_CFG_HOME after completing a PeopleTools-only
upgrade, review your old PS_HOME or PS_CFG_HOME for configuration files that you may want to reuse for
the new PeopleSoft PeopleTools release. While you may configure your Process Scheduler at this point in time of
the installation, do not boot your Process Scheduler until directed to do so within the upgrade.
See "Preparing for Installation," Preparing for the PeopleTools-Only Upgrade.
If you were using PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 or earlier, remove PS_HOME/appserv/PSADMIN prior to
installing the new release. If you have any customized configuration files (such as psappsrv.cfg, psconfig.sh,
pscbl.mak, psrun.mak, psprcs.cfg, and so on), copy them to another directory so that they are not overwritten
during the upgrade process. This enables you to preserve any tuned variables.
Configuration files are typically overwritten when you install the new release using the PeopleSoft Installer.

Understanding Report Distribution
The PeopleSoft PeopleTools Report Distribution lets you access reports and log files generated from process
requests run by a Process Scheduler Server Agent. Using the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture, you can view
reports and log files from the web browser through the Report Manager or Process Monitor Detail page. Report
Distribution enables you to restrict access to these reports to authorized users based either on user ID or role ID.
This product also includes the Distribution Agent component, which runs on the same server as the Process
Scheduler Server Agent. The Distribution Agent, a process that runs concurrently with the Process Scheduler
Server Agent, transfers to the Report Repository files generated by process requests initiated by the Process
Scheduler Server Agent.
The Distribution Agent transfers files to the Report Repository when one of these criteria is true:
•
The Process Scheduler Server Agent is set up in the Server Definition to transfer all log files to the Report
Repository.
• The process request output destination type is Web/Window.
In either case, the Process Scheduler Server Agent inserts a row in the Report List table (PS_CDM_LIST). The
server agent then updates the distribution status for a process request to Posting upon completion of the program
associated with the process request. The distribution status of Posting signals that the files for the process request
are ready for transfer to the Report Repository. The Distribution Agent is notified by Process Scheduler for any
process requests that are ready for transferring. As part of the process to transfer files to the Report Repository,
the Distribution Agent performs the following steps:
•
Transfer files to the Report Repository. All the report and log files are transferred to the Report Repository.
For each process request transferred, a directory is created in the Report Repository using the following
format: \<database name\<date yyyymmdd>\<report id>. All the files for a process request are stored in this
directory.
•
Delete the directory from the Process Scheduler Agent's Log/Output directory. When the output destination
type specified for a process request is Web/Window, all the files and directory associated with the process
request are deleted from the Process Scheduler Log/Output directory after the files are transferred to the
Report Repository.
The following diagram illustrates the Process Scheduler and Report Repository architecture. The diagram
includes the following items:

•
The web browser gives access to the Process Request dialog and the Report or Log Viewer.
•
The Report Repository is part of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture.
Note. The PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture must be installed for Process Scheduler to be able to transfer
reports to the Report Repository.
•
The Process Scheduler Server includes the Process Scheduler Server Agent and the Distribution Agent.
•
The transfer protocol between Process Scheduler and the Report Repository may be FTP/FTPS, XCOPY,
HTTP/HTTPS, or SFTP.
Process Scheduler and Report Repository Architecture
Before users can view a report, they are authenticated against the PeopleSoft database.
You should set up single signon if you do not want users to have to log on an additional time to view reports in
the Report Repository. For the details on setting up single signon, consult the security documentation.

Chapter 10B
See PeopleTools: Security Administration.
Task 10B-3-1: Setting Up Single Signon to Navigate from PIA to Report
Repository
To view reports (log files or system files) from Report Repository, you need to pass the authentication. Report
Repository should be treated as a separate PeopleSoft application. To navigate from PeopleSoft Pure Internet
Architecture (PIA) to Report Repository, you need to set up single signon to avoid getting a prompt for a second
signon. This section includes some considerations for setting up single signon to navigate from PIA to Report
Repository.
If Report Repository resides on the same web server as PIA, make sure your Local Message Node is set up to be a
"trusted" node for single signon for your system.
If Report Repository resides on a different web server than PIA, do the following:
•
Make sure your Local Message Node is set up to be a "trusted" node for single signon for your system.
•
Use a fully qualified domain name when addressing the web server for both PIA and Report Repository. For
example, enter http://<machineName>.peoplesoft.com/<site_name>/signon.html instead of http://
<machineName>/<site_name>/signon.html.
•
Specify the Authentication Domain for your application during installation. If you have multiple applications,
and you want them to employ single signon, it is important to specify the same Authentication Domain for all
applications.
See the information on implementing single signon in the PeopleTools: Security Administration product
documentation.
•
Set up single signon with a password, like this:
•
Choose PeopleTools, Integration Broker, Integration Setup, Nodes.
•
Click Search and then select the node marked as Default Local Node.
•
Select Password for the Authentication Option.
•
Enter a password of your choice.
•
Enter the password again in the Confirm Password field.
•
Enter the user ID for which you are setting up single signon in the Default User ID field.
•
Save the Node Definition.
•
Sign out from the PeopleSoft application.
•
Reboot your application server.

Task 10B-3-2: Determining the Transfer Protocol
We recommend using HTTP as your transfer protocol.
468
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 10B
Setting Up Process Scheduler on UNIX
Before transferring the files to the Report Repository, you need to determine which transfer protocol to use. If you
have a Microsoft Windows Process Scheduler and a Microsoft Windows web server, you can use either an
XCOPY, FTP/FTPS, SFTP, or HTTP/HTTPS protocol. (If FTP information is not specified, Process Scheduler
will perform an XCOPY.) If you have a PeopleSoft Process Scheduler on Microsoft Windows and a UNIX web
server, you can use FTP/FTPS, SFTP, or HTTP/HTTPS.
Note. If you are using FTP/FTPS or SFTP, the corresponding daemon must be set up in your web server.
Note. JRE is installed automatically on your Process Scheduler server.
Task 10B-3-3: Starting the Distribution Agent
The Distribution Agent is automatically started as another Oracle Tuxedo server when a Process Scheduler Server
is booted. If a Process Scheduler Server was set up without specifying a Distribution Node in the Server
Definition page, the Process Scheduler server will have a status in Process Monitor of "Running with No Report
Node." After a node is defined for the Process Scheduler server, in the next cycle the Process Scheduler server
checks the state of the system, and the Distribution Agent dynamically sets up its environment.
Task 10B-3-4: Setting Up the Report Repository
This section discusses:
•
Defining ReportRepositoryPath
•
Defining the Report Node to Use HTTP/HTTPS
•
Defining the Report Node to Use FTP
•
Defining the Report Node to Use FTPS
•
Defining the Report Node to Use SFTP
Defining ReportRepositoryPath
The ReportRepositoryPath specifies the location of a directory for the Report Repository. You can specify the
location for the Report Repository Path on the General page of the Web Profile during installation. If you do not
set the location in the Web Profile, the location given by ReportRepositoryPath in the configuration.properties file
is used for the default location. Note that the value entered for Report Repository Path in the Web Profile
overrides any entry in the configuration.properties file.
See PeopleTools: Portal Technology, "Configuring Web Profiles."
Use the following formats to enter the name for the directory that you want to use for the ReportRepositoryPath.
The examples below give the default values. Note that you must use a forward slash ('/') in both cases:
•
Microsoft Windows: ReportRepositoryPath=c:/psreports
•
UNIX: ReportRepositoryPath=<user_home>/PeopleSoft Internet Architecture/psreports
For <user_home> substitute the home directory for the current user.
Defining the Report Node to Use HTTP/HTTPS

4. Enter the following information in the Distribution Node Details area:
•
URLID: Enter the URL of the web server using the following format:
http://<machine_name>:<port_number>/psreports/<site_name>
Replace <machine_name> with the name of your machine. Use the fully qualified host name for your
web server. If you are using an HTTP or HTTPS port other than the defaults, you need to specify the port
number.
Note. If you specify the Authentication Token Domain name during the PIA installation, you must include
a fully qualified domain name for the URL instead of the IP address.
•

•
Password and Confirm Password: Enter the password, and confirm it, for the user ID specified in the
Login ID field. This is not required, unless basic authentication has been set up on the web server by the
Web Administrator.
Note. The setup of authentication is optional, but is recommended for security of the Report Repository
when using the HTTP to transfer files. For information on setting up authentication on the web server
where the Report Repository resides, refer to the PeopleTools: Security Administration product
documentation.
6. Enter the following information in the URI Details area:
•
URI Host: Enter the machine name for the report repository.
Note. In a basic setup, the machine name for the report repository will match the machine name of the web
server URL. However, under certain circumstances—for example, if you are using a reverse proxy
server—the URL and URI Host may have different machine names.
•
URI Port: Enter the port number, which must match the port number of your web server (defaults are
HTTP = 80, HTTPS = 443). If you change a port number you will lose the default values for both
protocols.
• URI Resource: Enter SchedulerTransfer/<site name>.
7. Click Save to save your entries.
8. Click Validate to confirm that your entries are complete and correct.
The validation confirms that the necessary parameters are present and correct, and simulates a file transfer
with the entered information. You either see a message that confirms the success of the validation, or a
message that displays an error for missing parameters or an unsuccessful transfer simulation.
9. To add additional report nodes, click Add to return to the Search page.
Defining the Report Node to Use FTP
If you use the FTP report node protocol, note that:
•
If your FTP server is a Microsoft Windows server, you may have to set up the FTP service.
•
The Distribution Agent will perform a validation after FTP has transferred files into the Report Repository by
sending a query request to the web server. For this task to be completed, it is critical that the value entered in
the URL is accurate. Verify that the machine name, port number, and site number that you specify are correct.
If this setup is not completed, the process request will get a status of NOT POSTED in the Process Monitor
Detail page and will log the message "Unable to verify files posted."
To define the report node to use FTP:
1. Select PeopleTools, Process Scheduler, Report Nodes.
2. Select Add a New Value, enter the Report node name, and click Add.

when the server is behind a firewall. By default,
ACTIVEPORTOPTION uses the default IP address of
your system. If you want to use a particular IP address, set
the ACTIVEPORTOPTION value to either the full IP
address, a host name to resolve to an IP address, or a local
network interface name.
You can also specify a port range. For example:
10.176.147.111:10000-13000
ENABLEEPRT
This option can be used only with Active Mode. If Active

These are two separate methods developed to invoke the client security for use with FTP clients. With the
explicit mode, FTPS-aware clients can invoke security with an FTPS-aware server without breaking
overall FTP functionality with non-FTPS-aware clients. The implicit method requires that all clients of the
FTPS server be aware that SSL is to be used on the session, and thus is incompatible with non-FTPSaware clients.

Certificate Alias: The Certificate Alias must be an alias
name of a certificate stored in the database (using the
PeopleSoft PeopleTools Digital Certificates page).
Note. Currently, only PEM certificates are supported for
FTPS.
ENABLEEPRT
This option can be used only with Active Mode. If Active
Mode is enabled and ENABLEEPRT is set to N, then the
system will use a PORT (IPv4) Active Mode connection.
By default, ENABLEEPRT is Y, if Active Mode is set to
Y.
EXTENDEDPASSIVEMODE
•
•
0: Disable EPSV
1: Enable EPSV
This property enables you to control whether extended
passive mode (EPSV) will be used by FTP.
EPSV is used by default. That is, by default, this value is
considered to be 1.
If the client fails to connect to the server with EPSV, then
the system will try passive mode (PASV). To use PASV
only, add EXTENDEDPASSIVEMODE to the URL
Properties and set it to 0.

Property Name
Property Value
KEYSTOREPASSWORD
This property is required for FTPS and HTTPS
repositories. For attachments transferred from the
PeopleSoft system to the FTPS or HTTPS repository, the
system retrieves the key pair for the client certificate from
the digital certificate store and writes the pair to a file in
PKCS12 format with password protection. The value of
this property will be used as the password for the PKCS12
file.
The PKCS12 file enables connection and file transfer, and
it exists only temporarily in
<PS_SERVDIR>\files\<CERT ALIAS NAME> for the
duration of the file transfer. The system deletes the file
after the file transfer transaction.
Note. If the system fails to delete the certificate alias file,
a message will be written to the application server log. The
maximum number of files that can exist at any time is
equal to the total number of FTPS and HTTPS URL
identifiers defined in the system.
For information on setting the PS_SERVDIR environment
variable, see the PeopleTools: Integration Broker product
documentation.
PASSWORD
Specify the password associated with the USER property,
which identifies the FTP User ID.

1 - Try SSL: Try using SSL, but proceed as normal
otherwise.
3 - SSL Only: (Default) Require SSL for all
communication.
USER
Specify the FTP User ID used for authentication when
accessing the FTP site.
VERIFYHOST
•
•
0: Do not verify the server for host name.
•
2: (Default) Check for a match with the host name in
the URL with the common name or Subject Alternate
field in the server certificate.
•
•
False: Do not verify the peer.
VERIFYPEER
1: Check if there exists any value in the common name
field in the server certificate. This check does not
verify if it matches with what the client specifies.
True: (Default) Verify the peer by authenticating the
certificate sent by the server.

Task 10B-4-1: Changing the Default Operating System
By default, Process Scheduler is set up to run a process request from a Process Scheduler Server Agent started in
a Microsoft Windows server when the value of the ServerName field in the Process Request Dialog page is left
blank. If you plan to run all processes other than Microsoft Windows-based programs (such as nVision) from
UNIX, you must change the default operating system.
Note. If you do not change the default operating system from Windows to UNIX and you do not plan to set up a
Process Scheduler Server Agent in Microsoft Windows, process requests that are created will be directed to a
Microsoft Windows-based operating system and will remain in the "Queued" status.
To change the default operating system for process requests that were not assigned a Process Scheduler Server
Name:
1. Select PeopleTools, Process Scheduler, System Settings.
2. Under Primary Operating System, choose UNIX from the drop-down list.
3. Click on the System Purge Options tab. Enter the date for the next purge of process requests in the Next Purge

Note. After running psconfig.sh, you can invoke the PSADMIN utility from any location.
Task 10B-4-3: Creating and Configuring a Process Scheduler Server
This section describes how to create and configure a Process Scheduler server.
You can set Process Scheduler configuration parameters either by using PSADMIN, which provides an interactive
dialog, or by editing the configuration file psprcs.cfg located in the PS_CFG_HOME/appserv/prcs/database name
directory. The following steps assume you are using PSADMIN to specify parameter settings.
Note. If you use the configuration file psprcs.cfg, be aware that in the PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.49 release and
later, the section [Output Dest Exceptions] has been modified to trap metastring exceptions not only in the output
destination but in other process parameters as well. In this section the entry
OUTDEST_EXCEPT01=%ANYMETASTRING% has been changed to
PARAMETER_EXCEPT01=%ANYMETASTRING%.
To create and configure a Process Scheduler Server:
1. Run the psadmin command.
You see the PeopleSoft Server Administration menu, as in this example:

Understanding PeopleSoft PeopleTools and SES Integration
The PeopleSoft Search Framework provides a standard, declarative method for creating, deploying, and
maintaining search indexes for all of your PeopleSoft applications. Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) is the
search engine on which the PeopleSoft Search Framework relies.
Before you can set up integration between PeopleSoft PeopleTools and Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, you
must first have SES installed and running successfully. Then you need to ensure that various elements on the
PeopleSoft Application Server and PeopleSoft Integration Broker are set appropriately. Integration Broker is the
vital link between PeopleSoft PeopleTools and SES. As such, it is essential to make sure that the gateway,
domains, nodes, services, and WSDL elements are activated and configured properly.
Important! Before installing Oracle's Secure Enterprise Search (SES) we highly recommend that you review our
deployment and sizing recommendations provided in "Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Deployment
Considerations for PeopleSoft 9.2" (Doc ID: 1684035.1) found on My Oracle Support. This article provides
information regarding the essential hardware for SES and information to help ensure capacity for peak concurrent
usage of your PeopleSoft 9.2 environment. Failing to follow these recommendations can impact the performance
and stability of your PeopleSoft 9.2 environment.

This chapter describes how to compile and link PeopleSoft COBOL batch programs, if necessary.
COBOL is not needed for PeopleSoft PeopleTools because the Process Scheduler is written in C++. In addition,
COBOL is not required for PeopleSoft applications that contain no COBOL programs. See My Oracle Support for
the details on whether your application requires COBOL.
The chapter includes instructions for the Micro Focus Net Express COBOL compiler.

Understanding Micro Focus Net Express Compiler Licenses
The Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Wrap Pack 11 compiler can be licensed with a Micro Focus License Server or
with the Request Key/Response Key mechanism. This section discusses the License Server method, which Oracle
recommends because it is more flexible and licensing is immediate. For more details, see the Micro Focus
documentation.
There are two types of Micro Focus Net Express licenses. Here is a brief comparison:
548
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 13A
•
•
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Timed License
•
Timed Licenses expire after the specified duration and can be renewed over the network.
•
Timed Licenses are the default given by the license server.
• There are two types of Timed Licenses; one is valid for seven days, and other for one day.
Full License
•
Full Licenses do not expire.
• The user can request and revoke Full Licenses using the License Management System.
It is a good idea to use Timed Licenses, unless you have a compelling demand. Mostly developers who work with
COBOL on a daily basis should use a Full License. If you require COBOL for a few compiles, and only for some
days, use a Timed License. When the Timed License expires, you can renew it again.
Task 13A-3-1: Configuring a Full License with the License Server
To configure a Full License for permanent use:
1. Select Start, All Programs, Micro Focus Net Express 5.1, Configuration, License Management System.
Note. Alternatively, run NE_HOME\Base\Bin\protcfg.exe, where NE_HOME is the directory where you
installed Micro Focus Net Express.

Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Understanding COBOL Compilation
With PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.50 and higher, your COBOL always needs to be compiled on Microsoft
Windows. (This is a change from previous versions of PeopleSoft PeopleTools, which delivered compiled
COBOL for Microsoft Windows.) This section assumes that you are carrying out the compile process from your
file server. (The COBOL compiler itself does not need to be on the file server, as long as the user can write to the
file server and can link to the src and bin directories.) The recommended approach for the PeopleSoft installation
is to use CBLBLD.BAT to compile all your COBOL source files at once. Another alternative is
CBLMAKE.BAT, which you can use to compile selected COBOL files.
The way that you set up your installation environment determines how you compile COBOL. This section
includes different procedures for the different installation environments, as follows:
•
PS_HOME Setup
If you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is the same as the
PS_HOME location where you installed the PeopleSoft PeopleTools software, follow the instructions in these
sections:
•
•
Compiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows with a PS_HOME Setup
• Defining the GNT and INT Files
PS_APP_HOME Setup
As described earlier, for PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 and later, you have the option to install the PeopleSoft
Application software to a location outside PS_HOME. If the PS_APP_HOME environment variable is defined
and is different from PS_HOME, the COBOL build scripts behave differently under certain build options.
There are also some new build options under certain environments which would be recognized if
PS_APP_HOME is defined.
If you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is different from the
PS_HOME location where you installed the PeopleSoft PeopleTools software, follow the instructions in these
sections:
•
•
Compiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
• Defining the GNT and INT Files
PS_CUST_HOME Setup
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 and later, you have the option to place customized COBOL baseline sources
into a location referenced by the environment variable PS_CUST_HOME.
The PS_CUST_HOME directory structure must replicate that of PS_HOME or PS_APP_HOME; that is, any
COBOL source file that is customized should be placed in the same relative path as was present in the original
location.
If your environment includes customized files in a PS_CUST_HOME directory, follow the instructions in
these sections:
•
Compiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows with a PS_CUST_HOME Setup
• Defining the GNT and INT Files
For those systems on which you only need to run COBOL, but do not need to compile it, you must install and
license the Micro Focus Net Express Runtime.
See Setting Up the Micro Focus Net Express Runtime.
Make certain to check whether you need to apply any late-breaking patches.

Task 13A-4-1: Compiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows with a PS_HOME
Setup
This section discusses:
•
Prerequisites
•
Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_HOME Setup
•
Compiling with CBLMAKE.BAT with a PS_HOME Setup
Prerequisites
This section assumes that you installed both PeopleSoft PeopleTools and PeopleSoft Application software to
PS_HOME, and that you have not set PS_CUST_HOME.
Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_HOME Setup
To compile COBOL with CBLBLD.BAT:
1. Set up two environment variables, %PS_HOME% and %COBROOT%, on the machine from which you'll
compile COBOL. (This should be either your file server or a machine that has access to your file server.)
You can do this from a command prompt window. This table gives the environment variables and their
purposes.
Environment Variable
Purpose
PS_HOME
PeopleSoft home directory—that is, the drive letter and
high-level PeopleSoft directory where you installed
PeopleTools and the application.
COBROOT
Drive letter and root directory of the COBOL compiler.
For example, you could enter the following in the DOS command prompt:
set PS_HOME=C:\HR92
set COBROOT="C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Net Express 5.1\base"
2. Open a command prompt window if you do not have one open already, and change directories to PS_HOME\
setup.
3. Execute CBLBLD.BAT as follows:
cblbld <compile drive> <compile directory>
In this command, <compile drive> is the drive where the compile takes place, and <compile directory> is the
temp directory where the compile takes place.
572
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 13A
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
The CBLBLD.BAT file will create the compile directory for you if it does not already exist.
Note. Make sure to include a space between the <compile drive> and <compile directory> parameters; they
are treated as two different parameters within the CBLBLD.BAT batch program. Also ensure that you have
write permission to <compile drive> and <compile directory> as the compile process will take place there.
For example, the following command will take the COBOL source from PS_HOME\src\cbl and do the
compile process under c:\temp\compile:
cblbld c: \temp\compile
Make note of the information that is displayed on the screen while the process is running; it provides the
locations of important files that you will need to examine.
4. After you have successfully compiled your source code, all of the executables should have been placed in
your <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> directory (this directory will be named CBLBINA or CBLBINU,
depending on whether you are using ANSI or Unicode). Make sure that all of the files were copied correctly
to this directory.
5. If the files were copied correctly, you can delete the entire temporary compile directory to free space on your
disk drive.
Note. You may want to keep the files in the compile directory for testing purposes. Make sure that you have
enough space on the drive where <compile directory> is located. Estimate about three times the amount in the
<PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> directory.
Note. If you chose the Unicode option while running the PeopleSoft Installer, the file UNICODE.CFG was
created in the setup directory. UNICODE.CFG automatically triggers the batch file CBL2UNI.BAT when you
run CBLBLD.BAT. Another batch file, CBLRTCPY.BAT, copies four DLLs (CBLINTS.DLL,
CBLRTSS.DLL, CBLVIOS.DLL, COB32API.DLL) from the Microfocus compiler directory (identified by
%COBROOT% setting) into the appropriate CBLBIN directory (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) when you run
CBLBLD. These files are needed for COBOL to run; they can reside anywhere as long as they are in the path.
You can run either of these BAT files independently from the command line (they reside in PS_HOME\setup).
For CBLRTCPY.BAT you need to specify a target directory.
Compiling with CBLMAKE.BAT with a PS_HOME Setup
CBLBLD.BAT compiles all your COBOL source files at once, which can take a lot of time. CBLMAKE.BAT, in
contrast, lets you employ one or more parameters to compile a specific COBOL source file or a selected group of
COBOL source files. Unlike CBLBLD.BAT, however, CBLMAKE.BAT does not automatically trigger the batch
file CBL2UNI.BAT or CBLRTCPY.BAT.
Here is the basic syntax for CBLMAKE.BAT:
CBLMAKE.BAT [] [ALL] [wildcard filename[ALL]] [wildcard filename |⇒
wildcard⇒
filename without extension[INT | GNT | EXE]] [LIST]
Note. The switches are well documented in the CBLMAKE.BAT file in the form of comments.
Note. If the change in the COBOL source is a copy member, you must compile all of the COBOL programs using
CBLBLD.BAT. You know it is a copy member when the third letter in the file name is a C, as in PTC
SQLRT.CBL.

Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Chapter 13A
The following table describes the various options for CBLMAKE.BAT.
Option
Purpose
Cblmake
Compiles all source
Cblmake all
Compiles all source
Cblmake PT*
Compiles all source files that start with PT
Cblmake PT* ALL
Compiles all source files that start with PT
Cblmake PT* INT
Generates INT files for all source files that start with PT
Cblmake PT* GNT
Generates GNT files for all source files that start with PT
Cblmake PT* EXE
Generates EXE files for all source files that start with PT
Cblmake PTPDBTST INT
Generates PTPDBTST.INT file
Cblmake PTPDBTST INT LIST
Generates PTPDBTST.INT and source listing file
Cblmake PTPDBTST GNT
Generates PTPDBTST.GNT file
Cblmake PTPDBTST EXE
Generates PTPDBTST.EXE file
The LIST option creates a source listing file under <compile directory>\<filename>.lis. The LIST option is
useful when the compile fails during the debugging phase. The source listing files show exactly where an error
occurred. This option is not recommended when the program compiles successfully because the .LIS files can
grow to be quite large.
Note. By default, when the program fails to compile, the system will generate a .LIS file.
To compile with CBLMAKE.BAT:
1. Verify that the %PS_HOME% and %COBROOT% environment variables are set up correctly.
2. Open a command prompt window.
3. Make sure the compile directory exists; it may already exist if you've run CBLBLD.BAT. If it does exist,
remove any files residing there—just as a safeguard. If it does not exist, you need to create it.
Note. Make sure you have write permission to <compile directory> as the compile process will take place
there.
4. Change to the PS_HOME\setup directory.
5. If the installation is Unicode, run CBL2UNI (with no parameters).
6. Execute the following command to copy all the COBOL source files from the PS_HOME directory to the
compile directory:
cblsrc <source directory> <compile directory>
where <source directory> is the drive and directory where the source resides (it should be the same as
PS_HOME), and <compile directory> is the drive and directory to which the source files will be copied.
574
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 13A
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
For example, the following command will take the COBOL source from PS_HOME and copy all the
necessary files to the location where the compile process will take place.
cblsrc PS_HOME c:\temp\compile
If the COBOL source that will be compiled is different from the one under PS_HOME, copy that COBOL
source to <compile directory>.
Note. The compile in the next step will generate a GNT file unless the exception file, CBLINT.XX already
exists (the XX represents the Product ID). CBLINT.XX contains the list of files that need to be compiled to the
INT file. Make sure the intended CBLINT.XX is located under <compile directory> before executing
CBLMAKE.
7. After CBLSRC completes, change directories to the compile directory, and run CBLMAKE.BAT, using the
basic syntax as well as the CBLMAKE table shown earlier as your guide.
8. After CBLMAKE.BAT completes, copy the EXE, GNT, or INT files to the appropriate PS_HOME\CBLBINX
directory (CBLBINA or CBLBINU).
copy *.exe PS_HOME\cblbina
copy *.gnt PS_HOME\cblbina
copy *.int PS_HOME\cblbina
Note. You have to copy these files to the appropriate cblbin directory manually when you use CBLMAKE;
they are not copied automatically, as when you use CBLBLD.
Task 13A-4-2: Compiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows with a
PS_APP_HOME Setup
This section discusses:
•
Prerequisites
•
Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
•
Compiling with CBLMAKE.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
Prerequisites
This section assumes that you installed PeopleSoft application software to a PS_APP_HOME directory that is
different from the PS_HOME directory where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools. It also assumes that there is
no separate PS_CUST_HOME directory with customized COBOL source files.
Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
The usage for running CBLBLD.BAT is:
cblbld <compile drive> <compile directory> [BUILD_option] [BUILD_home]
Substitute the appropriate values as follows:
•
<compile drive>
Enter the drive letter for the drive containing the directory where the compile takes place.
•
<compile directory>

575
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Chapter 13A
Enter the directory where the compile takes place. Be sure to include a space between <compile drive> and
<compile directory>.
•
BUILD_option
The allowed values are nothing (blank), ASCII or Unicode.
BUILD_option refers to the encoding scheme of your PeopleSoft installation. This parameter is optional.
•
BUILD_home
The allowed values are nothing (blank), PS_HOME or PS_APP_HOME.
Note. The values PS_HOME and PS_APP_HOME are case-insensitive.
BUILD_home refers to the directory from which the COBOL source files will be compiled.
This parameter is optional.
•
If the option is PS_HOME, the COBOL source files placed under %PS_HOME%\src\cbl will be
compiled.
•
If the option is PS_APP_HOME, the COBOL source files placed under %PS_APP_HOME%\src\cbl will
be compiled.
•
If the option is blank, the COBOL source files under %PS_HOME%\src\cbl and COBOL source files
under %PS_APP_HOME%\src\cbl will be compiled one after the other.
To compile COBOL sources on Microsoft Windows:
1. In a command prompt, set the environment variables described in this table:
Environment Variable
Purpose
PS_HOME
PeopleSoft PeopleTools home directory—that is, the drive
letter and high-level directory where you installed
PeopleSoft PeopleTools.
COBROOT
Drive letter and root directory of the COBOL compiler.
PS_APP_HOME
PeopleSoft Application home directory—that is, the drive
letter and high-level directory where you installed the
PeopleSoft Application software.
For example:
set PS_HOME=C:\PTcompile
set COBROOT="C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Net Express 5.1\base"
set PS_APP_HOME=C:\HRcompile
2. Change directory to PS_HOME\setup:
cd %PS_HOME%\setup
3. Run CBLBLD.BAT, using one of these methods:
•
To compile all the COBOL source files under your PeopleSoft application, that is, all PeopleSoft
PeopleTools source files and all PeopleSoft Application source files, run this command:
cblbld <compile drive> <compile directory>
For example:
576
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
Chapter 13A
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
cblbld c: \temp\PTcompile
•
To compile only PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL source files, run this command:
cblbld <compile drive> <compile directory> PS_HOME
For example:
cblbld c: \temp\PTcompile PS_HOME
•
To compile only PeopleSoft Application COBOL source files, run this command:
cblbld <compile drive> <compile directory> PS_APP_HOME
For example:
cblbld c: \temp\HRcompile PS_APP_HOME
PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL compiled executables will be placed under the <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X>
directory. PeopleSoft Application COBOL compiled executables will be placed under the <PS_APP_HOME>\
CBLBIN<X> directory. CBLBIN<X> will be one of the following:
•
CBLBINA if you are using ANSI encoding scheme
•
CBLBINU if you are using Unicode encoding scheme
Compiling with CBLMAKE.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
CBLBLD.BAT compiles all your COBOL source files at once, which can take a lot of time. CBLMAKE.BAT, in
contrast, lets you employ one or more parameters to compile a specific COBOL source file or a selected group of
COBOL source files. The procedure is slightly different depending upon whether the file that you want to compile
is a PeopleSoft Application or PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL file. Both procedures are covered in this section.
Note. The options for CBLMAKE.BAT are defined in a table in the previous section Compiling with
CBLMAKE.BAT with a PS_HOME Setup.
To compile a PeopleSoft Application COBOL file with CBLMAKE.BAT:
1. Open a command prompt window.
2. Verify that the PS_HOME, COBROOT, and PS_APP_HOME environment variables are set, as previously
defined.
See Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup.
3. Verify that the environment variable PS_compile_apps is set, as follows:
set PS_compile_apps=Y
Important! This variable setting is required for individual file compilation with CBLMAKE.BAT.
4. Make sure the compile directory, <compile directory>, exists, and that you have write permission to it.
This directory may already exist if you have run CBLBLD.BAT before. If it does exist, remove any files
residing there—just as a safeguard. If it does not exist, you need to create it.
5. Change to the PS_HOME\setup directory.
6. If the installation is Unicode, run CBL2UNI (with no parameters).
7. Execute the following command to copy all the COBOL source files from the PS_APP_HOME directory to
the compile directory:
Copyright © 2015, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
577
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
cblsrc <source directory> Chapter 13A
<compile directory>
Here <source directory> is the drive and directory where the source resides (it should be the same as
PS_APP_HOME), and <compile directory> is the drive and directory to which the source files will be copied.
For example, the following command will take the COBOL source from PS_APP_HOME and copy all the
necessary files to the location where the compile process will take place, c:\temp\HRcompile in this example:
cblsrc %PS_APP_HOME% c:\temp\HRcompile
Note. The compile in the next step will generate a GNT file unless the exception file, CBLINT.XX already
exists (the XX represents the Product ID). CBLINT.XX contains the list of files that need to be compiled to the
INT file. Make sure the intended CBLINT.XX is located under <compile directory> before executing
CBLMAKE.
8. After CBLSRC completes, change directories to the compile directory, and run CBLMAKE.BAT, using the
basic syntax as well as the CBLMAKE table shown earlier as your guide.
For example, to compile a file named GPPDPRUN, run this command:
cblmake GPPDPRUN
9. After CBLMAKE.BAT completes, copy the EXE, GNT, or INT files to the appropriate <PS_APP_HOME>\
CBLBIN<X> directory (CBLBINA for ANSI or CBLBINU for Unicode).
These examples use the ANSI encoding:
copy *.exe %PS_APP_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.gnt %PS_APP_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.int %PS_APP_HOME%\cblbina
Note. You have to copy these files to the appropriate cblbin directory manually when you use CBLMAKE;
they are not copied automatically, as when you use CBLBLD.
10. Verify that the compiler runtime files (CBLINTS.DLL, CBLRTSM.DLL, CBLRTSS.DLL, CBLVIOM.DLL,
CBLVIOS.DLL, COB32API.dll, MFLANGDF.lbr) are present in the <PS_APP_HOME>\CBLBIN<X>
directory.
If they are not present, then you will have to run %PS_HOME%\setup\cblrtcpy.bat as follows:
cblrtcpy %PS_APP_HOME%\cblbina
The procedure to compile a PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL file with CBLMAKE.BAT is similar, but the
environment variable PS_compile_apps must not be set.
1. Open a command prompt window.
2. Verify that the PS_HOME, COBROOT, and PS_APP_HOME environment variables are set, as previously
defined.
See Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup.
3. Verify that the environment variable PS_compile_apps is not set, as follows:
set PS_compile_apps=
Important! Unsetting this environment variable is required for individual file compilation with
CBLMAKE.BAT for PeopleSoft PeopleTools files.
4. Make sure the compile directory, <compile directory>, exists, and that you have write permission to it.

If they are not present, then you will have to run %PS_HOME%\setup\cblrtcpy.bat as follows:
cblrtcpy %PS_HOME%\cblbina
Note. If you plan to use cblmake.bat to compile a single (or a set) of PeopleSoft PeopleTools or PeopleSoft
Application COBOL program at the same time, it would be a good idea to use two different command prompts
and two different compile directories—one for PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL programs and the other for the
PeopleSoft Application COBOL programs. This avoids setting and unsetting the PS_compile_apps environment
variable.

This directory may already exist if you have run CBLBLD.BAT before. If it does exist, remove any files
residing there—just as a safeguard. If it does not exist, you need to create it.
5. Change to the PS_HOME\setup directory.
6. If the installation is Unicode, run CBL2UNI (with no parameters).
7. Execute the following command to copy all the COBOL source files from the PS_CUST_HOME directory to
the compile directory:
cblsrc <source directory> <compile directory>
Here <source directory> is the drive and directory where the source resides (it should be the same as
PS_CUST_HOME), and <compile directory> is the drive and directory to which the source files will be
copied.
For example, the following command will take the COBOL source files from PS_CUST_HOME and copy all
the necessary files to the location where the compile process will take place, c:\temp\CUSTcompile in this
example:
cblsrc %PS_CUST_HOME% c:\temp\CUSTcompile

Chapter 13A
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Note. The compile in the next step will generate a GNT file unless the exception file, CBLINT.XX already
exists (the XX represents the Product ID). CBLINT.XX contains the list of files that need to be compiled to the
INT file. Make sure the intended CBLINT.XX is located under <compile directory> before executing
CBLMAKE.
8. After CBLSRC completes, change directories to the compile directory, and run CBLMAKE.BAT, using the
basic syntax as well as the CBLMAKE table shown earlier as your guide.
For example, to compile a file named GPPDPRUN, run this command:
cblmake GPPDPRUN
9. After CBLMAKE.BAT completes, copy the EXE, GNT, or INT files to the appropriate
<PS_CUST_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> directory (CBLBINA for ANSI or CBLBINU for Unicode).
These examples use the ANSI encoding:
copy *.exe %PS_CUST_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.gnt %PS_CUST_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.int %PS_CUST_HOME%\cblbina
Note. You have to copy these files to the appropriate cblbin directory manually when you use CBLMAKE;
they are not copied automatically, as when you use CBLBLD.
10. Verify that the compiler runtime files (CBLINTS.DLL, CBLRTSM.DLL, CBLRTSS.DLL, CBLVIOM.DLL,
CBLVIOS.DLL, COB32API.DLL, MFLANGDF.lbr) are present in the <PS_CUST_HOME>\CBLBIN<X>
directory.
If they are not present, then you will have to run %PS_HOME%\setup\cblrtcpy.bat as follows:
cblrtcpy %PS_CUST_HOME%\cblbina
The procedure to compile a PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL file with CBLMAKE.BAT is similar, but the
environment variable PS_compile_cust must not be set.
1. Open a command prompt window.
2. Verify that the PS_HOME, COBROOT, and PS_APP_HOME environment variables are set, as previously
defined.
See Compiling with CBLBLD.BAT with a PS_APP_HOME Setup.
3. Verify that the environment variable PS_compile_cust is not set, as follows:
set PS_compile_cust=
Important! Unsetting this environment variable is required for individual file compilation with
CBLMAKE.BAT for PeopleSoft PeopleTools files.
4. Make sure the compile directory, <compile directory>, exists, and that you have write permission to it.
This directory may already exist if you have run CBLBLD.BAT before. If it does exist, remove any files
residing there—just as a safeguard. If it does not exist, you need to create it.
5. Change to the PS_HOME\setup directory.
6. If the installation is Unicode, run CBL2UNI (with no parameters).
7. Execute the following command to copy all the COBOL source files from the PS_HOME directory to the
compile directory:

Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
cblsrc <source directory> Chapter 13A
<compile directory>
Here <source directory> is the drive and directory where the source resides (it should be the same as
PS_HOME), and <compile directory> is the drive and directory to which the source files will be copied.
For example, the following command will take the COBOL source from PS_HOME and copy all the
necessary files to the location where the compile process will take place, c:\temp\PTcompile in this example:
cblsrc %PS_HOME% c:\temp\PTcompile
8. After CBLSRC completes, change directories to the compile directory, and run CBLMAKE.BAT, using the
basic syntax as well as the CBLMAKE table shown earlier as your guide.
For example, to compile a file named PTPDBTST, run this command:
cblmake PTPDBTST
9. After CBLMAKE.BAT completes, copy the EXE, GNT, or INT files to the appropriate <PS_HOME>\
CBLBIN<X> directory (CBLBINA for ANSI or CBLBINU for Unicode).
These examples use the ANSI encoding:
copy *.exe %PS_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.gnt %PS_HOME%\cblbina
copy *.int %PS_HOME%\cblbina
Note. You have to copy these files to the appropriate cblbin directory manually when you use CBLMAKE;
they are not copied automatically, as when you use CBLBLD.
10. Verify that the compiler runtime files (CBLINTS.DLL, CBLRTSM.DLL, CBLRTSS.DLL, CBLVIOM.DLL,
CBLVIOS.DLL, COB32API.DLL, MFLANGDF.lbr) are present in the <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X>
directory.
If they are not present, then you will have to run %PS_HOME%\setup\cblrtcpy.bat as follows:
cblrtcpy %PS_HOME%\cblbina
Note. If you plan to use cblmake.bat to compile a single (or a set) of PeopleSoft PeopleTools or PeopleSoft
Application COBOL program at the same time, it would be a good idea to use two different command prompts
and two different compile directories—one for PeopleSoft PeopleTools COBOL programs and the other for the
PeopleSoft Application COBOL programs. This avoids setting and unsetting the PS_compile_cust environment
variable.
Task 13A-4-4: Recompiling COBOL on Microsoft Windows
You always need to compile at installation, so you will only need to recompile COBOL in the following
situations:
•
You are installing PeopleSoft software for the first time.
•
The supported COBOL compiler changes.
•
You change the version of your RDBMS.
•
You change the version of your operating system.
• You apply a PeopleSoft PeopleTools upgrade, patch, or fix.
You can recompile selected COBOL files by using CBLMAKE.BAT, or recompile all your COBOL source files
by using CBLBLD.BAT.

Troubleshooting
Understanding the Micro Focus Net Express Runtime
The Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime provides the COBOL runtime environment required for COBOL
programs to run. Install and license the runtime on each system that will run PeopleSoft COBOL applications.
Typically, PeopleSoft COBOL application programs are run on PeopleSoft application server systems and
PeopleSoft batch (Process Scheduler) systems.
The Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime consists of the following components:
•
•
Six DLLs
•
CBLINTS.DLL
•
CBLRTSM.DLL
•
CBLRTSS.DLL
•
CBLVIOM.DLL
•
CBLVIOS.DLL
• COB32API.DLL
A Microsoft Windows registry entry for ASLMF
For 64-bit Microsoft Windows systems, the entry is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MICRO FOCUS\ASLMF
•
The directory that contains the runtime license database, C:\psft-mf-nx-as-license, which contains the
following files:
•
mfasdb
•
prodfile
• semfile
• The Application Server License Manager Service
The Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime DLLs installation is done automatically as part of the COBOL
compilation process. When CBLBLD.bat is run, it invokes CBLRTCPY.bat to copy the COBOL runtime DLLs
listed above, from the %COBROOT%\bin directory to %PS_HOME%\CBLBINx directory.

585
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Chapter 13A
CBLBINx is CBLBINA, CBLBINE or CBLBINU, based on the compilation mode of ASCII, EBCDIC or
Unicode respectively.
If you have already set up the Micro Focus Net Express COBOL compiler on a system, there is no explicit
installation necessary for the runtime. For those systems where you only want to run COBOL, but have no need to
compile it, use the following instructions in the section Installing the Runtime Files and Setting Up the License.
Installing the Runtime Files and Setting Up the License
The license files are included with the files that you downloaded from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. The
Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Wrap Pack 11 Runtime Licensing files are contained in the self-extracting zip file,
MFLicense_51WP11.exe. This executable provides the COBOL runtime system with unlimited runtime Net
Express licenses specifically for PeopleSoft installations.
Always use the runtime files created for the version of the compiler that you used in compiling the COBOL files.
For example, use the MFLicense_51WP11.exe runtime license file for the Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Wrap
Pack 11 compiler.
This section assumes that:
•
You installed and compiled the PeopleSoft COBOL application files on the runtime system.
• You saved the files from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud in a directory referred to as NE_INSTALL.
To set up the runtime license:
1. Set the environment variable PS_HOME to the directory where your PeopleSoft software is installed.
For example, use this command in a command prompt window:
set PS_HOME=C:\HR92
2. Delete the following Microsoft Windows registry entry if it exists:
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Micro Focus\ASLMF
3. Delete the directory C:\psft-mf-nx-as-license if it exists.
4. Go to NE_INSTALL, and run the self-extracting zip file MFLicense_51WP11.exe.
5. Specify the directory to save the files, for example C:\MFLicense-Extract-51WP11.
6. Change directory to C:\MFLicense-Extract-51WP11 and run the script setupMF.bat.
This script makes the following changes:
•
Installs the Micro Focus Net Express Application Server License Database.
•
Creates the Microsoft Windows registry entry
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Micro Focus\ASLMF, which point to the
directory c:\psft-mf-nx-as-license.
• Adds the files mfasdb, prodfile, and semfile to the directory C:\psft-mf-nx-as-license.
7. Run the command MFLMWin with the option to install, as follows:
MFLMWin.exe -i
8. To verify that the Micro Focus license manager was installed, run Microsoft Windows Services.
For example, run the following command in the command prompt window:
services.msc
You should see the service Micro Focus License Manager with status Started, and the Startup type should be
Automatic.

Chapter 13A
Installing and Compiling COBOL on Windows
Removing the Runtime License
To uninstall the runtime license:
•
Delete the Microsoft Windows registry key:
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Micro Focus\ASLMF
•
Delete the C:\psft-mf-nx-as-license directory and its contents.
Troubleshooting
If you install the Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime License on a system where the Micro Focus Net Express
5.1 compiler is already installed, you see an error message that mentions that Runtime DLL CBLRRSS is not
found. Use one of the following solutions:
•
If the system where you are installing the license will be used only for running COBOL programs, but not
compiling, remove the Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 COBOL compiler installation, and then re-install the
Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime License.
•
If the system where you are installing the license will be used for both compiling and running COBOL
programs, just ignore the error message. The Net Micro Focus Express 5.1 COBOL compiler is already
installed, and has an embedded runtime, which will be used to execute the COBOL programs. Thus there is no
need to install and license the Micro Focus Net Express 5.1 Runtime.
If you see an error "ASLM: Errno 1000" it means the runtime license is not installed. Use the instructions in the
earlier section to install the license.
See Installing the Runtime Files and Setting Up the License.
Task 13A-4-6: Defining the GNT and INT Files
By default, the compile generates a GNT file unless the exception file, CBLINT.XX already exists. CBLINT.XX
contains the list of files that need to be compiled to the INT file.
Note. The INT exception file is sometimes needed to overcome Micro Focus execution error with GNT files.
For example, the exception file, CBLINT.PT, where PT represents PeopleTools, would contain the following
information:
Call cblcrint <file name without file extension>
or:
Call cblcprint PTPDBTST
Task 13A-4-7: Distributing COBOL Binaries
After you have compiled your COBOL, you must transfer it to the needed locations. The required action depends
upon how you set up PS_HOME, PS_APP_HOME, and PS_CUST_HOME.
•
PS_HOME Setup
If the PS_APP_HOME location is the same as the PS_HOME location:
Copy the contents of <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into <PS_HOME>\
CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) on your batch and application server machines.

PS_APP_HOME Setup
If the PS_APP_HOME location is different than the PS_HOME location:
1. Copy the contents of <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into
<PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) on your batch and application server machines.
2. Copy the contents of <PS_APP_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into
<PS_APP_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) on your batch and application server
machines.
•
PS_CUST_HOME Setup
If you have customized files in PS_CUST_HOME:
1. Copy the contents of <PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into
<PS_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) on your batch and application server machines.
2. If PS_APP_HOME is different from PS_HOME, copy the contents of <PS_APP_HOME>\CBLBIN<X>
(CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into <PS_APP_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU)
on your batch and application server machines.
3. Copy the contents of <PS_CUST_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) directory into
<PS_CUST_HOME>\CBLBIN<X> (CBLBINA or CBLBINU) on your batch and application server
machines.

Chapter 13B
Installing and Compiling COBOL on UNIX
Prerequisites
Each application created using a Server Express product that will be deployed in a UNIX environment must
include a Micro Focus Application Server for Server Express license from Micro Focus or from your Micro Focus
licensed supplier. Micro Focus Application Server must be installed on the machine on which the application is to
run. Contact your Micro Focus Account Representative or your Micro Focus licensed supplier for details on
purchasing Application Server licenses.
Note. Consult the Server Express Extras Install Documentation, included with the software on Oracle Software
Delivery Cloud, for information on how to add licenses (development and ULP runtime).
If you have a previous Micro Focus COBOL product installed we recommend that you make a backup of any
COBOL systems files that you have changed. Examples include cobkeymp, ADISCTRL, cobopt and cobconfig.
After you have installed Server Express you might want to apply to the new COBOL product the changes
previously applied to these files.
If you are installing a COBOL system over an existing COBOL system, you must first delete the existing system.
Alternatively, you might prefer to move your existing COBOL system to another directory until you have verified
the new installation.
If you have installed, or plan to install, Micro Focus Application Server or any other Micro Focus product on the
same machine as this product, you must install them in different directories.
This Micro Focus product is managed by a License Management Facility (LMF). This facility helps you keep
track of the number of licenses you have for the product. In order to use this product it is necessary for you to
install the License Management Facility (which is provided with the Server Express software). This software
should not be installed in the same directory as Server Express. The default directory depends upon the operating
system; for example:
•
/opt/lib/mflmf for HP-UX Itanium
•
/usr/lib/mflmf for RS/6000 and PowerPC systems running AIX
• /opt/lib/mflmf on other systems
If /opt/lib does not exist, use /usr/lib/mflmf instead.
Task 13B-2-1: Obtaining the Installation Files for Micro Focus Server
Express from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
The Micro Focus Server Express installation files are available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. At this point
you should have already downloaded the necessary files. This section includes additional information on finding
and using the files for Micro Focus Server Express if necessary.
See "Preparing for Installation," Using Oracle Software Delivery Cloud to Obtain Installation Files.
See Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, https://edelivery.oracle.com.
To obtain the files for the Micro Focus Server Express installation:
1. After logging in to Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, read the information about export restrictions, and then
click Accept.
2. Enter Micro Focus in the type-ahead Product field, and select Micro Focus International Ltd. Server Express

6. Read the license agreement, select the check box to acknowledge that you accept the terms, and then click
Continue.
7. Click one of the file names to download an individual zip file, or click Download All to obtain all of the files
listed.
The files include software, wrap packs, and documentation. Save the zip files to a temporary directory on your
local system. You must extract (unzip) the file on the platform for which it is intended. For example, if you
download the zip file for Oracle Solaris, you must unzip it on Oracle Solaris to avoid problems. If you unzip
the file to a staging directory on a Microsoft Windows computer and copy the staging directory to an Oracle
Solaris computer, the stage area files may be corrupt.
Task 13B-2-2: Installing Micro Focus Server Express
The following section is provided as an example installation and illustrates a typical Micro Focus Server Express
5.1 Wrap Pack 11 installation for PeopleSoft application, as outlined in the overview section above.
The answers to the prompts provided in the following example are recommended by Oracle for PeopleSoft
installations, with the exception of the installation directory for the Micro Focus License Management Facility.
For this step, you can use the default directory names or choose directory names based on your site's naming
conventions.
It is recommended by Micro Focus and Oracle to install LMF in its own directory, instead of in a sub-directory of
the Server Express install.
Important! Make sure to select the correct bit mode for your UNIX platform.
With PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, enter 64 for all UNIX platforms.
The following example was done on a Red Hat Linux x86-64 operating system platform. Installation prompts will
vary slightly with respect to specifics of the different UNIX platforms.
1. Log in as root.
2. Create a directory (if it does not exist) where you want to install the Micro Focus Server Express 5.1 Wrap
Pack 11. For example:
$ mkdir -p /products/mf/svrexp-5.1_wp11-64bit
3. Change directory to the one you created in the previous step.
$ cd /products/mf/svrexp-5.1_wp11-64bit
4. Copy or ftp the Micro Focus Server Express 5.1 Wrap Pack 11 tar file that you obtained from Oracle Software
Delivery Cloud to this directory.
In this example, the file name is sx51_wp11_redhat_x86_64_dev.tar.
5. List the items in the directory with the following command:

Understanding COBOL Compilation
On UNIX and Linux operating systems, you always need to compile your COBOL programs at installation time.
After you run the PeopleSoft Installer to set up your application or batch server, perform the steps discussed in
this section.
You have two options for compiling:
•
You can treat one application or batch server as your compile server, compile all your COBOL programs
there, and then distribute cblbin from there to all other relevant servers. In this case, only that one server
would require a COBOL compiler, and you would copy any patches and customizations from your file server
to this designated server before carrying out the compile.
•
The second option is to compile on all servers. In this situation, all servers would need a COBOL compiler,
and you would need to copy any patches and customizations from the file server to all of these servers before
carrying out the compile.
Note. You should have read/write access to the directory PS_HOME/cblbin to be able to compile the COBOL
programs.
Note. To copy a compiled COBOL program from one UNIX server to another, they must be on the same
operating system that the compile took place on. For example, if you compile on Oracle Solaris for the
Application Server, and the Process Scheduler is on AIX, you cannot copy the compiled program (you will also
need to compile on the AIX machine).
The way that you set up your installation environment determines how you compile COBOL. This section
includes different procedures for the different installation environments, as follows:
•
PS_HOME Setup
If you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is the same as the
PS_HOME location where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools, follow the instructions in the section
Compiling COBOL on UNIX with a PS_HOME Setup.
•
PS_APP_HOME Setup
As described earlier, for PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 and later, you have the option to install the PeopleSoft
Application software to a location outside PS_HOME. If the PS_APP_HOME environment variable is defined
and is different from PS_HOME, the COBOL build scripts behave differently under certain build options.
There are also some new build options under certain environments which would be recognized if
PS_APP_HOME is defined.
If you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME location that is different from the
PS_HOME location where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools, follow the instructions in the section
Compiling COBOL on UNIX with a PS_APP_HOME Setup.
•
PS_CUST_HOME Setup
For PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 and later, you have the option to place customized COBOL baseline sources
into a location referenced by the environment variable PS_CUST_HOME.
The PS_CUST_HOME directory structure must replicate that of PS_HOME or PS_APP_HOME; that is, any
COBOL source file that is customized should be placed in the same relative path as was present in the original
location. If your environment includes customized files in a PS_CUST_HOME directory, follow the
instructions in the section Compiling COBOL on UNIX with a PS_CUST_HOME Setup.

Task 13B-3-1: Setting Environment Variables
On your UNIX system, you need to log in and ensure the following environment variables are set appropriately.
Alternatively, make sure the following environment variables are set in the .profile file in the user's home
directory:
•
$COBDIR must be set to the Micro Focus Server Express installation; for example:
COBDIR=/products/mf/svrexp-51_wp6;export COBDIR
•
$COBDIR/lib must be appended to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, or SHLIB_PATH, whichever is
appropriate for your platform.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$COBDIR/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
LIBPATH=$LIBPATH:$COBDIR/lib; export LIBPATH
SHLIB_PATH=$SHLIB_PATH:$COBDIR/lib; export SHLIB_PATH
•
$COBDIR/bin must be appended to the PATH; for example:
PATH=$PATH:$COBDIR/bin;export PATH
To set the required DB2/LUW environment, run db2profile. Enter the following command:
cd <DB2 INSTANCE DIRECTORY>/sqllib
. ./db2profile
To set the required PeopleSoft environment variables, source the script psconfig.sh. Enter the following command
from the PS_HOME directory:
. ./psconfig.sh
Task 13B-3-2: Modifying the Liblist64 File (IBM AIX)
Understanding Liblist Modifications
If you are compiling COBOL on AIX, modify the liblist64 file as described here. Check My Oracle Support for
additional information about modifications that need to be made in the liblist64 file for COBOL.
See My Oracle Support, Certifications.
Modifying the Liblist64 File for AIX
To modify the liblist64 file for AIX:
1. cd to $COBDIR/lib.
2. Add the following line to the liblist file:
x:*:s!t:-lC
The following listing shows where to make the changes (in bold font):

Task 13B-3-3: Modifying the Cobopt File (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server
Only)
If you are compiling COBOL on a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server operating system, you must update the
$COBDIR/etc/cobopt64 file to point to the correct GCC compiler object files. Without these changes the Server
Express product cannot compile correctly.
Note. Check whether the gcc directory exists in your system. If not, then install the gcc lib as directed in the
$COBDIR/docs/env.txt file.
Change the following line in the $COBDIR/etc/cobopt64 file:
From
To
-C nolist
-C nolist
set GCC_LIB=/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.1.2
set GCC_LIB=/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3
Task 13B-3-4: Compiling COBOL on UNIX with a PS_HOME Setup
This section assumes that you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME directory that is
the same as the PS_HOME directory where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools. It also assumes that there is no
separate PS_CUST_HOME directory with customized COBOL source files.
To compile COBOL on UNIX:
1. If you haven't already done so, download all required patches to your file server, and from there FTP the
contents of src\cbl\base and src\cbl\unix over to src/cbl on the relevant application or batch server.
Note. When you copy patches over from the file server, the files need to have a lowercase cbl extension and
an uppercase program name, as in PATCH.cbl.
2. Source the script psconfig.sh from PS_HOME to set up environment variables correctly on your application or
batch server.
. ./psconfig.sh
3. Change to the PS_HOME/setup directory:
cd $PS_HOME/setup

Chapter 13B
Installing and Compiling COBOL on UNIX
4. To compile all the COBOL source dynamically, issue the command:
./pscbl.mak
The dynamic compile creates INT, LST, and GNT files, which are copied to these locations:
File
Location
INT
PS_HOME/src/cbl/int
LST
PS_HOME/src/cbl/lst
GNT
PS_HOME/cblbin
Warning! Proposed ISO 2000 COBOL features are enabled. Please refer to documentation for details, and do
not rely on these features being supported in future products from Micro Focus due to changes in the proposed
COBOL standard.
Note. For Server Express, PeopleSoft sets the COBOL directive INTLEVEL to 4. Setting this directive to this
value enables you to raise the significant digits of numeric fields from 18 to 31. This is in accordance with the
ISO 2000 COBOL standard. During the compilation of each program, the vendor of Server Express will
display a warning. This should not be considered a compilation error.
Task 13B-3-5: Compiling COBOL on UNIX with a PS_APP_HOME Setup
This section assumes that you installed the PeopleSoft Application software to a PS_APP_HOME directory that is
different from the PS_HOME directory where you installed PeopleSoft PeopleTools. It also assumes that there is
no separate PS_CUST_HOME directory with customized COBOL source files.
Use the shell script pscbl.mak, found in PS_HOME/setup, to do the PeopleSoft COBOL compilation. This table
describes the allowed arguments for pscbl.
