PeopleSoft DPK Setup Commands

Since, most of the manual tasks are taken away by the DPK installation method, another great thing about the installation and setup process by using the DPK script is that the setup is very similar irrespective of the hardware platform. So, if you create a standard for your organization — it makes it easier for others to perform the installation.

The DPK setup script is an interactive script and prompts you for user input only once and then begins the process to the end — no prompts in between! Most of the prompts are to provide passwords for user ID, PeopleSoft Connect ID, Application Server Domain Connection, and so on.

Use the below table for running the DPK script, psft-dpk-setup — just use the extension “bat” for Microsoft Windows and “sh” for Linux or UNIX instead of <ext>.

Note: PeopleSoft DPKs require two dashes when running on Microsoft Windows, Linux or UNIX.

The below commands assume that the DPK scripts are in the parent directory. If they’re in a different directory add the following: –dpk_src_dir <full_DPK_path>

For help, you can also issue the command: psft-dpk-setup.<ext> –help

    IF I only run the “ –env_type midtier –domain_type appbatch”, will it also install the Oracle database client?
