Unable to boot Search server on the same server as the Process Scheduler.  Search server is a separate component that will be seen on psadmin menu, like below.  (It is used in the process of Verity setup)

PeopleSoft Server Administration

  1) Application Server
  2) Process Scheduler
  3) Search Server
  4) Service Setup
  q) Quit
This is a new installation of Tools. The Scheduler boots fine, but the Search server will not start.  Both the search server and the scheduler are connecting to the same Oracle database server. (same PSHOME in use for both components)

PSADMIN menu showed error:
