Last week I talked about setting up a new directoy on our file servers to handle patches:
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME. The role of
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME is to hold SQR, COBOL source, and other file system objects from PUM Patches. But, to make it easier to apply patches to the new
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME, we want those folders to show up in Change Assistant as a file server. Then Change Assistant will deploy the files to
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME for us.
With two changes, we can get our
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME to show up as a file server.
- Copy the file
- In the
PSEMAgent\envmetadata\config\configuration.propertiesfile for your file server, add the path for
unixdrivestocrawl. For example,
windowsdrivestocrawl=e:/psoft/hr92dev-patch|<your other folders>
After you add
PS_APP_PATCH_HOME, issue a recrawl to your EMF Agent.
When you re-open Change Assistant and validate the environments, the new path should show up. The
e:\psoft\hr92dev-patch folder will also show up in the list of File Servers when applying a patch.
Dan – Thanks for info.
And where would I find this appsfilesrvr.info file on Linux? Our app servers and web servers are Linux fully de-coupled Tools 8.54. I looked on the PS_APP_HOME on Linux but could not find this file. I also searched the PS_HOME, but not found.
I would also like to know what file is change assistant looking at to determine if the machine is an app server, files, server, batch server or web server … ? Is there such a file? what is the name of it? and where is it located on Linux ?
I’m not sure. I’ve only found documentation references to Windows for this file, and I wasn’t able to find it on my PeopleSoft Image. I would think it exists somewhere, but it’s escaping me right now.
For your second question, the agents use a combination of folder patterns (appserv/DOMAIN or appserv/prcs/DOMAIN), the
peopletools.propertiesfile and the
appsfilesrvr.infofile. I haven’t found a definitive source for all this, so that’s what I’ve put together from testing with the EMF agents.
Roger – here is what my
appsfilesrvr.infofile looks like:
You could create the file in
$PS_APP_PATCH_HOME/binand the try a recawl to see if it reads as a file server. Not sure if that will work, but might be worth a try.
