E-INST: Does a Full Base PeopleTools 8.56.00 release need to be Installed to apply PeopleTools Patch using 8.56.08? (Doc ID 2408615.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2018

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



What is the recommended way to install the 8.56 tools version for a PeopleTools upgrade? Should the "tool home" (PS_HOME) be installed using 8.56.08 patchset and skip the Base version installation per statement below or do you need to install the tools patch on the top of an existing PeopleTools 8.56.00 Base release?

From the PT 8.56.08 PRODUCT PATCH (27597441) VCD readme.html file:  "Starting with PeopleTools 8.56 01, all PeopleTools patches will be cumulative and will contain the full base PeopleTools 8.56.00 release. Unlike prior PeopleTools releases, there is no need to download the base release (8.56.00) and apply the patch (8.56.08) over it, as the patch now contains all files for a full installation."
