E-UPG: Peopletools Upgrade Clarification -- Questions About updPTU855.zip and updPTP855xx.zip in an Upgrade

(Doc ID 2210747.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


For these questions we will be using the example of upgrading from 8.54.05 to 8.55.09

Qn0: Why is the following error given by Change Assistant:
      Check 2: PeopleTools Upgrade Patch Version Check
      PeopleTools Upgrades are not supported to the GA Release. Please download the latest
      PeopleTools Patch from MyOracleSupport and apply it to your PS_HOME(<PS_HOME path> before

Qn1: Where in the documentation does it say to open Change assistant and open up the package = updPTU855.zip?
Qn2: Why is it not required to download the PT upgrade package if DPKs were installed?
Qn3: Is it required to install both the Windows and Linux DPKs even though HR only runs on Linux and only use Windows for Change Assistant activities?
Qn4: Where I would get the updPTU855.zip zipfile using the DPKs?
Qn5: Should the updPTU855.zip zipfile from the DocID 2070772.1 not be used?
Qn6: So would the patch = updPTU855.zip upgrade to 8.55.01 and the patch = updPTP85509.zip upgrade to 8.55.09?
Qn7: So if both updPTU855.zip and the patch updPTP85509.zip are required, are they applied back to back with Change Assistant?
Qn8: Is there a need to go into Change Assistant twice?
Qn9: What is meant by "GA" release?
