E-DPK: PeopleTools DPK Installation Error on Linux "Puppet (err): Could not set 'present' on ensure: Operation not permitted @ chown_internal" (Doc ID 2626549.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 14, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.57 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to install PeopleTools DPK,
the following error occurs.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. The software was copied to Linux with a non-root user (ptools).
2. The unix admin ran the dpk prerequisite task as root user with these parameters:
    ./ --prereq --syscfg
3. Then ran the dpk install with a non-root user (ptools) with these parameters:
    ./ --env_type midtier --deploy_only
and stopped so could create the custom yaml.
4. After the psft_customizations.yaml was created, executed the 2 steps to proceed with the install.
    $ cd /hr01/BASE_DIR/dpk/puppet/production/manifests
    $ /opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet apply --confdir=/hr01/BASE_DIR/dpk/puppet site.pp --debug --trace --detailed-exitcodes --logdest /hr01/ptools/sfw/psft_dpk_setup.log
