    How to add a 2nd web/app svr?

    1003725
      I'm new to Peoplesoft and have a working PeopleSoft HCM9.1 FP2 with PeopleTools 8.52.06 environment built from the latest OVM templates.

      I'm running the web & application svrs on the same VM. Now, I need to create another web+app svr VM to test configuration with a 3rd party load balancer. Can I simply repeat the steps I've already performed to create the 2nd web+app svr VM?

      Any guidance or documentation reference is appreciated!

      Regards,
      Holly

          The ovm template documentation will have the PS_HOME and PS_CFG_HOME information similar to the one shown below

          PS_HOME
          The binary installation files are placed into a secure PS_HOME directory at /opt/oracle/psft/appbatch/tools.
          This directory can only be written to by the PeopleSoft administrator, psadm1.

          PS_CFG_HOME
          The application server and Process Scheduler server configuration files are placed into
          PS_CFG_HOME. This directory is owned by psadm2. The PS_CFG_HOME path is
          /home/psadm2/psft/pt/<peopletools_version>.

          The same section also gives the credentials of users psadm1, psadm2 etc.

          You should be able to configure additional domains as you would do for a normal installation.
          If you are looking for instructions on how to configure domains, please refer to your PeopleTools installation guide.

          Hope this helps

            Of course, you can have as many app/web VM as you want for the same database VM.
            Can I simply repeat the steps I've already performed to create the 2nd web+app svr VM?
            Yes, absolutely.
            App/web VM is nothing but a "hardware", so you can multiply them given them a unique IP address across your network, link to your unique database, and everything should work fine.
