E-AD: Cannot Save Configuration Manager Changes When PS_SERVER_CFG Variable is Set in Windows (Doc ID 651397.1)

Last updated on MARCH 13, 2023

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.4 and later

Configuration Manager changes (including Install Workstation) do not save when you press Apply and OK. As soon as exiting the Configuration Manager and going back in, all previously made settings are gone. The workstation install is on the file server, using an ID in the Administrator group.  It is not working at all.

However, the creation of new Profiles under Profile tab is kept when going out and going back in.

We are also getting an error in the Event Log:
