Migrating from 7.1x and 7.6.x to 7.7

After installing the 7.7 server, follow these steps for migrating the PeopleSoft Adapter environment from 7.1.x or 7.6.x releases.

  1. Create the following three directories under the 7.7 server’s approot directory.
  2. Copy the contents of the old snapinst and snapcat folders to the new directories.
  3. Update the Application Path to include snapcat.
  4. Configure the relevant SQL Database Adapter.
  5. Configure the PeopleSoft Adapter.
  6. Proceed to Adding the First Connection to PeopleSoft on the DBA screen, and enter the DBA password that you used in the earlier release.

The PeopleSoft adapter is now ready for use.

Note: If you are migrating from a server release earlier than 7.7.04 to release 7.7.04 (or later), the PSLOGIN procedure will be added to each synonym, as an MFD_PROFILE entry, that is registered to the PeopleSoft adapter. This process will take place every time the adapter is used via the Web Console. Existing synonyms will be backed up in application directory SNAPBAK and a log file will be created in the same directory. The log file name takes the format: psmiglog_hh.mm.ss and will be created every time that the adapter is used.

Note: If you wish to migrate from a 5.3 release, please contact Information Builders Customer Support Service (CSS) at (800) 736-6130 or (212) 736-6130 for instructions.
