E-CA: PT 8.56 Running Multiple Instances of Change Assistant (Doc ID 2435372.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2019

Applies to:

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


Qn1:PeopleBooks documentation states the following:

Running Multiple Instances of Change Assistant

Beginning with PeopleTools 8.56 multiple instances of Change Assistant can run in parallel, however you can not run multiple instances against the same target database. This CA functionality is available independent of the Tools Release of the Target Databases, however, some calls on some older Tools Releases do not support parallel processing and therefore locking will occur. If locking occurs, a message will be displayed in Change Assistant showing the lock.

If this doesn't apply to the same server then what has been introduced with PT 8.56 CA???
Qn2:Is it possible to run two sessions of Change Assistant of the same version?

If yes, will both have the same settings and target database information? The point is to run two of the same as indicated in the document pt856tswu-b012018.pdf. Otherwise all the target /package info has to be redefined which is painful
