Upgrading PeopleTools with Zero Downtime (3/3)

In the past post, we covered the approach we followed to have both PeopleTools versions running at once. In this post we will cover the issues we faced and how we got around.

Missing Tables

Step by Step - "Hello World" Fluid Application

PeopleTools 8.54 delivers Fluid, a complimentary new user interface designed for mobile and desktop devices (see it in action here). If you don't already have tools 8.54 installed grab Image 008 for HCM or FSCM  (see Doc ID 164184.2 on MOS) and follow this simple step by step guide to create your first Fluid application.

Upgrading PeopleTools with Zero Downtime (2/3)

Continuing with my previous blog entry, the requirement from our customer was to be able to move users back and forth between the old and new PeopleTools releases until the latter was stabilised.

Jethro List: Data Mover Woes

Ok.  Maybe this is a rant, but Data Mover can sometimes get under my skin!  Some things you just expect to work, and when they don’t, it is very frustrating.
Here’s my problem.  I created this very, very simple data import:

set log C:\temp\aa_setup_import_FADEV.log;
set input C:\temp\aa_setup_export_AATST.dat;

replace_data RQ_GRP_SHR_SET;
delete PS_RQ_GRP_TBL where RQRMNT_USEAGE = 'ADV';
import RQ_GRP_TBL where RQRMNT_USEAGE = 'ADV';

It gave me this error:

Upgrading PeopleTools with Zero Downtime (1/3)

A few months ago, BNB concluded a PeopleTools upgrade with a quite curious approach. Our customer, a leading Spanish financial institution, had PeopleSoft CRM 8.4 installation running under PeopleTools 8.42. Their CRM application was being used to provide support to their 24x7 call centres, and the only reason they had to perform the PeopleTools upgrade was to be able to update their database and WebLogic releases, as the existing ones were already out of support.

Error unzipping PeopleSoft Images

The new PUM images are a boon for anyone wanting to get a PeopleSoft instance up and running quickly. Once you’ve downloaded the zip archives however, you might find that the delivered zip file doesn’t work by default for everyone.

The line:

unzip HCM-920-UPD-008_OVA_2of11.zip

gives me the following error:

OOW 2014 - Customer Appreciation Party

Aerosmith..... what can I say,  Started in 1970 - these "older guys" can still sing and play.  Amazing.

OOW14 Update: Oracle OpenWorld 2014 comes to an end

Today was the last day of Oracle OpenWorld 2014 at San Francisco. Even though it started a bit later due to yesterday's Appreciation Event which hosted Aerosmith, Spacehog and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (which I did not attend, but that's a different story), the day was packed with good sessions. I have particularly appreciated the PeopleTools Meet the Experts session, which allowed me to network with Oracle PeopleTools experts and share points of view with other partners and customers.

OOW 2014 Day 3 Fluid Deep Dive

If the overall theme of OpenWorld has been Cloud then within the PeopleSoft product the big theme has been Fluid (and Mobile).

Enable Fluid Home Link in FSCM PUM Image 008

I wanted to start experimenting with the new Fluid user interface in PeopleTools 8.54 and as Image 008 shipped on 8.54 I thought it would be a good place to start.  However, I found that the cref link to the Fluid Homepage was not visible for some unknown reason.
