Peoplesoft database creation - Part II

After creating the database in the database creation part I, it is time to load the Peoplesoft obects.
The scripts to be apply are under $PS_HOME/scripts, the projects under $PS_HOME/projects
This part is entirely dedicated to the manual database load - this is not required if you are using the DBWizard as I explained earlier in an other article.

Before hands, add the tns antry for the remote database, and test the connectivity from the client workstastion.

1. Configure the connectid within Configuration Manager

2. Run the DataMover and connect in boot strap mode (Peoplesoft's owner, generally SYSADM)

3. File > Database Setup
4. If you're working on a Unicode database, check Unicode and choose a proper characterset.
5. Check DEMO database to build a database with some data sample (typically for training purpose or developement) and SYS to build a database without data sample (UAT and production database). For more details about DMO and SYS difference, read this article. In addition, add the languages you want to see in your application
note : in the screen below, the access password is specified by default in upper case (it could be an issue on 11g with password case sensitivity feature activated if the sysadm's password has been defined in lower case)
The base language is most often "English", to make your life easier leave it in English.
Finally run the script, be aware, over the network, it could take several hours to complete.

NOTE : it is important to know, since it is a HCM9.1 installation, you don't have to upgrade the Peopletools to the latest release. All Peoplesoft applications 9.1 have been built on Peopletools 8.50 and consequently they are already on the latest Peopletools level.

6. Try to connect onto the AppDesigner with the HCM default user PS/PS
If the connection fails as showed above, run the %PS_HOME%/scripts/grant.sql to give the grant required to people user (connectid).

If it fails again, verify the PSACCESSPRFL table, ACCESSID and ACCESSPWD, if they are equal, you may have to change the Oracle SYSADM user's password in upper case as below :

The connection to AppDesigner should succeed.

7. The following step is dedicated to the Multilingual installation. If you don't install a ML database, skip this step and go directly to the part III of the database creation.
7.1 Copy the project PPLTLSML from file under %PS_HOME%/projects

Choose only the language(s) you want to see in your application

7.2 Go to the DataMover with PS user
7.3 open and run the script(s) %PS_HOME%/scripts/pt850tlsxxx.dms (xxx is being your code language you are installing).

I am installing Portal Solutions 9.1 on Tools 8.50 on Oracle 11g and Windows 2003 platform manually. I got the the point where I run the DMS for Database Setup in bootstrap mode, (connected using SYSADM). All the other scripts are ran manually and successfully.

The script was running fine until I got the error

- SQL Error. Error Position: 175 Return: 959 - ORA-00959: tablespace 'FSAPP' does not exist

Error: Unable to process create statement for BUS_UNIT_LANG
Ended: Sun Aug 01 12:48:27 2010
Unsuccessful completion

When I ran the script to create the table space and executed sqlplus in nolog mode so I dont now how many more table spaces were not created.
Please how I get around this issue and finish my installation?

Thanks in advance for you help.

Hi, I am installing HCM 8.9 with PT 8.48.
I only have one doubt...pls let me know with which user(SYSADM, SYSDBA or SYSTEM), should I run the rel scripts to update the peopletools release?

Gasparotto, your blog is terrific. I am very new to Peoplesoft but enjoy reading your descriptions of the processes.

I am on a team that is upgrading from 8.9/8.49 HRCMS to 9.1/8.5. The project also calls for a conversion from MS SQL 2005(non unicode) to Oracle 11g (Unicode).

Our approach is to first convert the database from SQL to Oracle on version 8.9/8.49. After this is complete a more traditional upgrade will occr taking the app from 8.9 to 9.1.

We have used an export *; command with DataMover. We have fought with connectivity and security issues but now have the app server and PIA running. We can connect and login but have seen some issues related to improper view creation. Currently we plan to re-work the process on a seperate SID using the MSVPEXP DataMover script.

Any other ideas of suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you,
- Chris
