Startup Options

Set database sign-in values in the Startup section, so that the domain can connect to the database.

Note: When specifying passwords, such as UserPswd, Connect Password, and StandbyUserPswd you will be prompted with: Do you want to encrypt this password? Selectingy encrypts the password so that it does not appear in clear text in the configuration file (PSAPPSRV.CFG) or PSADMIN.

DBName

Enter the PeopleSoft database name, such as FSDMO or HRDMO. This parameter is case sensitive.

DBType

Enter the PeopleSoft database type, such as DB2ODBC, DB2UNIX, INFORMIX, MICROSFT, ORACLE, or SYBASE. If you enter an invalid database type, PSADMIN prompts you with a valid list.

UserID

Enter the PeopleSoft user ID that is authorized to start the application server. For the application server to boot, the appropriate user ID with the correct authorizations must be assigned to this parameter. This is the ID that the application server passes to the database for authentication and connection. The user ID that you enter here is not related to the actual user (administrator) that carries out the boot command.

The Can Start Application Server permission must be set in the permission list. The authorization to start an application server does not (directly or indirectly) grant any authorizations or privileges beyond the ability to start the application server. Each user who attempts to sign in enters a unique user ID and password, which the application server uses to authenticate each user.

UserPswd

Enter the password to be used by the specified user ID that will gain access to the database.

The password:

  • must be specified in uppercase to simplify administration of the system.

  • should not exceed 32 characters.

  • (Windows) should not contain any forward-slash characters (/).

  • (UNIX) should not contain any percent characters (%).

Connect ID

Required for all database platforms. Enter the database-level ID that the PeopleSoft system uses to make the initial connection to the database. This user name must have authority to select from PSACCESPRFL, PSLOCK, PSOPRDEFN, and PSSTATUS.

Connect Password

Enter the password for the connect ID. For instance, this might be the UNIX user's password (either uppercase or lowercase).

The password:

  • should not exceed eight characters.

  • (Windows) should not contain any forward-slash characters (/).

  • (UNIX) should not contain any percent characters (%).

ServerName

Required for Sybase and Informix. Enter the name of the server on which the PeopleSoft database is installed. This value is case sensitive.

(Used only for by Oracle databases with Oracle Active Data Guard implemented). Specify the standby database type, such as ORACLE.

StandbyUserId

(Used only for by Oracle databases with Oracle Active Data Guard implemented). Specify the user ID required to connect to the standby database.
