E-MSS Support for Microsoft SQL Server features: Clustering, Mirroring, Log shipping, Replication, Compression and Encryption. (Doc ID 837491.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 15, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.48 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Microsoft SQL Server features such as clustering, mirroring, log shipping, replication, compression and encryption are not tested or certified by Oracle for use with PeopleSoft applications.

 However, this does not mean that use of the features should be avoided.   In general, these features are independent of PeopleSoft applications and will not interact with them, so their use is compatible with PeopleSoft databases, limited to the qualifications in the Certifications area of My Oracle Support for versions and patches.

Microsoft SQL Server features are supported by Microsoft. Any issues specific to the feature should be reported to Microsoft support and Microsoft will contact Oracle if further action is necessary.

An example of an exception to compatibility is column encryption on SQL Server 2005. This requires certificates or keys which would require code changes to PeopleTools in order to support this feature and integrate it into the PeopleSoft application environment and processes.
