Creating a Decoupled PS_HOME from a Single PS_HOME

This document describes a method for moving to a decoupled PS_HOME environment using the PeopleSoft Deployment Packages (DPKs).

A decoupled PS_HOME environment refers to one in which the location of PS_HOME, which holds the PeopleSoft PeopleTools files, is different from that of PS_APP_HOME, which holds the PeopleSoft application (such as HCM and FSCM) files, and PS_CUST_HOME, which holds user-customized files.

See PeopleBooks PeopleTools: System and Server Administration for information on PS_HOME, PS_APP_HOME, and PS_CUST_HOME.

The PeopleSoft DPKs set up a decoupled PeopleSoft environment by default, with PS_HOME and PS_APP_HOME installed in different locations.

To set up a PS_CUST_HOME, you deploy using a customization file.

See PeopleTools 8.55 Deployment Packages Installation, found on the PeopleSoft PeopleTools Patches Home Page, My Oracle Support, (Doc ID 2062712.2) for information on using customizations with the DPKs.
