Understanding PeopleSoft Configuration Manager

PeopleSoft Configuration Manager simplifies Windows workstation administration by enabling you to adjust PeopleSoft registry settings from one central location. It contains a variety of controls that let you set up Windows workstations. You can set up one workstation to reflect the environment at your site, and then export the configuration file, which can be shared among all the workstations at your site. You can also define separate profiles for connecting to different PeopleSoft databases. PeopleSoft configuration parameters are grouped on the Configuration Manager tabs according to the function, feature, or tool that they control.

Note: The changes you make within PeopleSoft Configuration Manager do not take effect until the next time a user signs on to PeopleSoft.

Note: When referencing install locations in your environment using Configuration Manager, keep in mind that some files may be located in PS_APP_HOME instead of PS_HOME, depending on how you've implemented your PeopleSoft application.
