Environment what we are building consists of:

    • Operating System: Windows Server 2008 SP2.
    • Database Server: SQL Server 2008 with SP2.
    • PeopleSoft Application: PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Resources Management System and Campus Solutions 9.0
    • PeopleTools: PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52
    • Web Server: Oracle Web Logic Server 10.3.4

The machine name given for this environment is WIN2K8 and currently only 1 user, the default username is Administrator and it is the local admin.

The below steps are performed with reference to the installation document of PeopleTools 8.52 on Microsoft SQL Serer provided by Oracle which can be found : This documentation is indeed very good and describes everything in very much details. Only drawback is that it is like 700 pages document and very tedious to go through. Hence thought of writing same instruction set but in bit easy format and more screenshots. 

Although, if you really want to understand the installation process and how each software works hand in hand with other then I highly recommend performing the installation with the Oracle PeopleSoft documentation.

If you have any issues during the Installation process, the best place to ask questions would be Oracle PeopleSoft Forums as the folks on that forums are certified PeopleSoft experts.

Step1: Download and install SQL Server 2008 with SP2:

  • Minimum requirement is Service Pack 2. If you have SP2 installed then you should see the SQL Server Native Client version as 2007.100.4000.00 as shown below in the screenshot. As of date, the latest Service Pack out for SQL Server 2008 is SP3 so even if you install SP3 then it works.


I am more of Microsoft Technologies person and not Oracle Technologies so installing and configuring SQL Server was easy. But still there are few important configurations which you need to perform in SQL too which you can find in the Oracle Documentations.

Step2: Download all software required from Oracle

  • Go to Https:// and sign in with your Oracle Account. If you do not have one, you can easily create one and its free registration.


  • On the Media Pack Search Page select Product Pack as PeopleSoft Enterprise and Platform as Microsoft Windows x64.

PS Ent X64

  • On the next page select PeopleSoft Human Resources Management System and Campus Solutions 9.0 Media Pack and select Continue.


  • On the next page download the following Softwares.

o PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Resources Management System and Campus Solutions 9.0: Feature Pack - March 2011

o PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Resources Management System and Campus Solutions 9.0 Supplemental Installation Information (Revision 3)

o PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 Disc 1 of 3

o PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 Disc 2 of 3

o PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 Disc 3 of 3

o Tuxedo 10gR3 for MS Windows Server 2008 w/MS VS 2008 x86 32-bit

o JRockit JDK R28.1 for Java SE 6 with JRockit Mission Control 4.0.1 for Microsoft Windows (64-bit x86)

o Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.4) Generic and Coherence

Step3: Installing JRockit for Microsoft Windows:

  • Unzip the downloaded file and double click the setup file. Click Next on the Welcome screen window.


  • Change the installation directory to C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.6.0_20-R28.1.0-4.0.1 and click next


  • Keep the default values on all other pages and as shown in below screen shots.






  • This concludes the installation of JRockit.

Step4: Installing Oracle WebLogic on Windows:

  • Save the installation file wls_generic.jar from Oracle EDelivery in the directory called WLS_Install on C:\
  • Open a command prompt and go to WLS_INSTALL.
  • Set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to be the location where you installed the JRockit and Use the following command to launch the installer.


set JAVA_HOME=”C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.6.0_20-R28.1.0”

%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -jar wls1034_generic.jar -mode=GUI -log=C:\WLS_Install\Wls1034Install.log


  • Wait for few seconds or also this might take few minutes and the Oracle WebLogic Installer Window will come up. Follow the instructionas as shown in the screenshots for next installation steps.



Remove the check box which says “I wish to receive security updates via My Oracle Support” . And click yes to remain uninformed for next 2 windows.










  • This concludes the Installation of Oracle Web Logic Server

Step5: Installing Oracle Tuxedo:

  • Save the zip file to a temporary directory on your local system, referred to in this documentation as TUX_INSTALL.. Extract the files into TUX_INSTALL.
  • First you need to designate an existing user or create a new user such as TUXADM to be the Application Server Administrator. The Application Server Administrator and not the Windows Administrator. This user will install Oracle Tuxedo. The designated user must be a local Microsoft Windows administrator and must have full system privileges. The PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 program for the Oracle Tuxedo installation creates a new service for Microsoft Windows called “ORACLE ProcMGR V10gR3 with VS2008” for which you need administrator privileges. Administrator rights are required since system registry settings are updated. Once this new service is created, you must reboot to start it.
  • To designate the Application Server Administrator:

1. To add the user, add the user ID by choosing Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Local Users and Groups.

2. Expand Local Users and Groups.

3. If the user ID does not yet exist, highlight the Users folder, and select Action, New User.

4. On the New User dialog box, specify the information for the new account. Make sure to deselect the User must change password at next logon check box.

5. Expand the Groups folder.

6. Right-click the Administrators group, and select All Tasks, Add to Group, Add.

7. Click Locations to select the local machine or the network domain in which you created the new user.

8. Enter the new user name you created in the object names box.

9. Click OK, and click Apply and OK again to accept the changes.

  • Double-click TUX_INSTALL\tuxedo10gR3_32_win_2k8_x86_VS2008.exe to begin the installation process. Click OK on the initial window.
  • Follow the steps shown in screenshots below.














  • Go to Windows –> Services


  • Instead of Administrator use the User account name which you created in the first few steps of Oracle Tuxedo Installation.


  • This concludes the installation and configuration of Oracle Tuxedo.

Next steps continued in Part 2.

Hi Vishal,

Very Nice. with these instructions, even a novice can do it. I usually include a Turn Off Windows UAC. It is a pain!
