Enabling Selective Adoption in Cloud Manager

Cloud Manager enables customers to take advantage of Selective Adoption by:

  • Quickly creating PUM environments in Oracle Cloud.

  • Automating configuration of target databases in PUM source.

Once target databases are configured, standard procedure should be followed to apply updates to target environments. For details on the selective adoption process, refer Selective Adoption.

Creating PUM Environments

To create a new PUM source environment using Cloud Manager, perform the following:

As a PeopleSoft administrator:

  1. Ensure the latest required PI is downloaded in the repository.

  2. Create a new environment template using the latest downloaded PI and PUM topology.

  3. Enable user access to the newly created PUM source environment template.

    Adding the target database takes a few minutes to complete. The target database is configured on the Change Assistant and target database information is uploaded to the PUM source database. The status is displayed as either In Progress, when the job to add target is running. After successfully adding the target the status shows as Complete or Failed (if job fails).

Accessing Change Assistant in Windows Client

Using the Change Assistant and the PUM source PIA, change package can be defined, created and applied to target environments.

To access Change Assistant, perform the following:

  1. Determine the IP address or hostname of the PeopleSoft Client that was deployed as part of the PUM source environment from the Environment Details page.

    The IP address and Oracle Cloud Name is displayed in PeopleSoft Client section of the Environment Details page.

  2. Connect to the Windows Client using remote desktop connection.

  3. Copy PRPs to Windows Client To apply PRPs to PUM Source environment, user needs to copy the downloaded PRPs from the file repository to the Windows Client VM. All downloaded PRPs are accessible to Windows Client VM as a samba share. To access the PRP share on the Windows VM, perform the following:

    • RDP to Windows Client VM

    • Connect to the samba share using \\<File_Server_IP>\PRP.

    • Copy the required PRPs to D:\psft\pum_download directory on the Windows Client.

    • Using Change Assistant apply the copied PRPs to the PUM Source environment.

  4. Follow the standard selective adoption procedures by:

    • Applying PRPs to PUM Source environment

    • Define Change Package by connecting to the PUM source database

    • Create and apply change package
