PeopleSoft Installation made Extremely Easy: Part 3

Completing the Database Setup

Step 1: Update the Database to Latest PeoleTools Release

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.
Login into the app designer with the userid PS and password PS, if you get a message like this:
The database is at release 8.51 . The PeopleTools being run the require database at release 8.52.

Then you have to upgrade the database.  This section is only applicable if you get the error message shown above but if you are successfully able to login into application designer through the user PS then directly go the next section in this part.

Run the below SQL query in SQL Developer:


Note that you can either run the query in SQL*Plus by connecting to database through sqlplus command as shown in the Section Verify Database Connection in Part 2 or you can use Oracle SQL Developer tool to do so. For more info on how to use SQL Developer as SQL editor for our demo database HRDEMO visit this article - How to Connect to a Database through SQL Developer in MS Window

If the PeopleTools version returned from above query is lower than 8.52 then perform below tasks:
  1. Connect to the database HRDEMO with Access ID- SYSADM. Follow the instructions given in the section Verify Database Connection in Part 2 to connect to the database HRDEMO through SYSADM.
  2. Run the script rel852n.sql located in \scripts directory. After this run the grant.sql script located in the same directory. Before running the grant.sql, modify it by replacing all the occurances of with people
  3. Now login into Datamover with the Operator ID- PS and run the script storeddl.dms located in \scripts directory.
  4. Logout from Datamover and login back with the Access ID- SYSADM which will start the Datamover in bootstramp mode and run the script msgtlsupg.dms located in \scripts directory.
