Downloaded from http://edelivery.oracle.com
Choose "Peoplesoft Entreprise", plateform "Linux x86", then under "PeopleSoft Enterprise - PeopleTools 8.49 Media Pack", then disk named as
"PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools 8.49 PeopleTools 8.49 Mobile Agent (use requires specific license) Disk 1 of 7"
"PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools 8.49 PeopleTools 8.49 Mobile Agent (use requires specific license) Disk 2 of 7"

"PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools 8.49 PeopleTools 8.49 Mobile Agent (use requires specific license) Disk 6 of 7"
"PeopleSoft Enterprise PeopleTools 8.49 PeopleTools 8.49 Mobile Agent (use requires specific license) Disk 7 of 7"

Here below, I'll show the Peopletools installation for the HRMS application. It's better to install one Peopletools software by application directory.
1. As root, the group psoft has already been created previously.
[root@orion:/apps/bea/weblogic/9.2]$ useradd -g psoft hrms9 [root@orion:/apps/bea/weblogic/9.2]$
[root@orion:/apps/bea/weblogic/9.2]$ passwd hrms9
Changing password for user hrms9.
New UNIX password:
BAD PASSWORD: it is too short Retype new UNIX
password: passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully. [root@orion:/apps/bea/weblogic/9.2]$


2. Start the installation in GUI mode with user hrms9 created at step 1.
At this step you'll need the license code from (depending of the database vendor) http://licensecodes.oracle.com/ent_keys_by_prod.html#PeopleTools
The license code are same for production usage.
In XClient window :

[hrms9@orion:/nfs/software/peoplesoft/PeopleTools/PeopleTools8.49/Disk1]$ ./setup.linux
Insert or change the directory of CD on demand (all the 7 cd will be required) : 4. Install the patch 8.49.08
Downloaded from ftp://ftp.peoplesoft.com/outgoing/ptools/84908
Password for unzipping the compress file from http://www.peoplesoft.com (a valid customer ID required)
Tab Update+Fixes, then Apply to Release

Choose Product Line => Peopletools

Product => Peopletools
Release => 8.49

Check the Bunldes checkbox, then search

Click on Update ID #738550

Open the user doc html files to get the password.

Lastly, at this step you'll need the license code (depending of the database vendor) from http://licensecodes.oracle.com/ent_keys_by_prod.html#PeopleTools
In XClient window :
[hrms9@orion:/nfs/software/peoplesoft/PeopleTools/PeopleTools8.49.08/cd84908/disk1]$ ls
media.inf pt_responsefile.txt readme.txt setup setup.aix setup.exe setup.hp setup.hp-ia64 setup.jar setup.linux setup.solaris
[hrms9@orion:/nfs/software/peoplesoft/PeopleTools/PeopleTools8.49.08/cd84908/disk1]$ ./setup.linux




5. Modify the .bash_profile
[hrms9@orion:/home/hrms9]$ more .bash_profile
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME
export ORACLE_HOME=/apps/oracle/ora102
export PS_HOME=/apps/psoft/hrms9
. $PS_HOME/psconfig.sh

6. Run the psadmin to check your install :
We get the 8.49.08 flag, nice.
Next step, Peoplesoft HRMS application installation.

Have fun,

I am trying to install PeopleTools 8.49 on HP-UX Itanium. I downloaded all the 7 zip files, and when unzipped, went under Disk1 through 7. Ran the setup.hp-ia64 from Disk1. Expected the program to prompt for Disk 2 through 7 directories, but it never did. It said the Installation is successful. I don't see any database creation scripts under the scripts directory. I went through all the steps you explained in this procedure. Any idea what is wrong here?
