Selective Adoption Fundamentals

Adjusting PeopleSoft 9.2 Maintenance 

For more than two decades, PeopleSoft followed the industry standard for how to deliver new application functionality to customers. The periodic delivery of massive application upgrades which were difficult and costly to apply was a model which customers had no choice but to accept. Internally, IT Departments and Line of Business system owners took up battle positions over upgrade scheduling. IT, which controlled the resources, would hold out for as long as possible to avoid committing time and money to an arduous PeopleSoft upgrade while Business owners would track and monitor fixes and enhancements delivered in new releases to build a business case in their favor.

Installation Tips for PeopleSoft on DB2 z/OS

Preparation:  The most important factor for success is preparation for both the PeopleSoft application team as well as the z/OS and DB2 support team.  A coordinated effort needs to be made during the pre-installation phase to determine the appropriate values for the each of the parameters in the Pre-installation Worksheet (included in the installation documentation).  The values defined in this worksheet will be entered into the Server Transfer utility (pstrans.exe), and become the basis for the creation and population of Partitioned Data Sets in TSO and Hierarchical File System in the Unix Subsystem (USS) on the z/OS mainframe.  Errors at this point in the process are magnified significantly down-stream.  For example, during a recent installation, as simple transposition of characters in the plan name for CLI Packages caused the z/OS Process Schedulers to fail on startup and was extremely difficult to isolate.
