PeopleSoft Update Manager complete Guide-Part 1

Hi everyone,

Since the release of 9.2 PeopleSoft applications,Oracle has completely changed the conventional process of patching for PeopleSoft. It has introduced a whole new concept of PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) which is indeed terrific. Couple of Pros of PUM:--
  • PUM provides very extensive and deep level of control to Administrators to create the Change packages.
  • No more search,download for patches from Oracle support site.
  • Every PeopleSoft image is coming as a cumulative set of all the bugs.
Lets concentrate on how to configure the PUM and how does it look.
I will be taking the PeopleSoft HCM image release 9.2.05 into consideration,and will divide this writeup into two parts

Download and Install PeopleSoft Image and install Change Assistant
Configure PUM and Usability of PUM for Change packages.

Download and Install PeopleSoft Image and install Change Assistant 

From Oracle support go to the following Document

Download the latest Peoplesoft Image from the support site

Once downloaded you will have files of .ova format,you have to concatenate all the files into one file using the following command

copy /b HCMDB-85309-PI005_OVA_1of5+HCMDB-85309-PI005_OVA_2of5+HCMDB-85309-PI005_OVA_3of5+HCMDB-85309-PI005_OVA_4of5+HCMDB-85309-PI005_OVA_5of5 85309d.ova

The result will be like this and the highlighted file is the concatenate one.

Download the Oracle VirtualBox software from and install it.
Open VirtualBox, go to File>Import appliance and give the path of the concatenate file.

Click Next and then Import with 'reinitialise MAC settings' ,the PeopleSoft demo instance will be 
created in 15-20 minutes.

Configuring Change Assistant
 For installing Change Assistant, copy the setup folder from the tools client supplied in the Peoplesoft image.

go to run and type in //<ip_address of image> and the shared folders will be accessible.

after the CA is installed click on the icon to open it.

The first screen will be like:--

Click 'next',Check the 'Update Manager' button and click next,

 it will go to the "general" options where you need to fill out the necessary directory details.
The PUM directory is the pi_home directory of the shared folders of the image.
Either you can map it or copy the contents 
to your local desktop and give the location here
as shown below and click 'next'

The CA will ask for the HUB ip and the port information,Here I have already made the
 necessary configurations for PSEMAgent and PSEMHub 
to communicate with each other. Make sure the ping returns OK as shown.
you can also click view to see all the environments registered with your HUB.Click 'next'

Skip the additional options page,click 'next'

The CA will now ask for the target database details as shown.Click the radio button.

Once the environment is selected the CA asks for the target Database details.

After filling in all the details do check for the successful connection as shown.Click 'next'

Click next after CA has picked up all the target database details.

Now the CA will as for the Source database details (PeopleSoft Image that I installed).

So after filling in the database name the details page prompts and fill in the details
 as shown and check for successful connection

Click on the confirmation page, then fill in the URL of the PeopleSoft Image installed 
as shown and click next.The CA will start uploading the target database details to the Image.

Now click on the 'Open Browser and Connect to PI datbase' which will open the Image PIA.
