The PeopleSoft Deployment Packages (DPKs) are a new method for installing and deploying PeopleSoft servers. DPKs are built on Puppet, open source server automation software, that lets you quickly build servers. The DPK is used by PeopleSoft Images, but you can use the DPK to deploy and configure your own servers. This FREE course will introduce you to the DPK, show you how to use the DPK with PeopleSoft Images, and show you how to customize the DPK for your servers.

If are still running on PeopleTools 8.53 (or earlier), you’ll need both 32-bit and 64-bit Oracle clients installed. Managing both versions can be cumbersone, and often times frustrating. Tim Slater offered a great solution… Read More

This name is the PeopleTools version the image is based on, but it tells you nothing about the application release. I prefer to use a different naming… Read More

The delivered COBOL compile scripts support compiling each HOME individually, but we can’t combine homes into a single CBLBINA folder. Additionally, with PeopleTools 8.55 dropping support for PS_CUST_APP_HOME, we are using a custom PS_APP_PATCH_HOME folder in the layer between PS_CUST_HOME and PS_APP_HOME. To learn about PS_APP_PATCH_HOME, check out this video overview of the custom home… Read More
