Hi Nicolas, in the database setup, I see 4 buttons: Demo, system, Add New Language and Add New Product. I assumed that the button system was the sys instance. Now I'm realizing that the button system means the basic peopleTools Database, so, I can't see the sys instance.... What could it be? remember that with theese files I have already installed dmo instance
Thanks for your quick response
My bad, forget my previous post, it's nothing but misleading.
Demo is to build a demo database only, as you already did.
System is to build either a Peopletools system database or a SYS database (which you want).
To do so, try first click on System, then add the application HRCS from the above part of the window, not the Peopletools system database option. The name of the app might be confusing, it's something like "Peopletools HCM demo database" but in the end it's a sys database loading only hcengs.db whereas it's hcengs.db and hcengl.db for a demo database (see the output script).
1) Be sure the PS_APP_HOME variable is pointing to the right directory where HCM has been installed (check within ConfManager/Profile (Default)/Edit/ProcessScheduler tab).
2) Be sure you checked the "Peoplesoft HCM Database" checkbox during the application installation. Open the log file HCM_InstallLog.log in the directory where you installed the application.
You may have something like this:
CHOSEN_FEATURE_LIST=PeopleSoft HCM Demo Database
CHOSEN_INSTALL_FEATURE_LIST=PeopleSoft HCM Demo Database
=> this means only Demo is installed and you cannot go for something else (except for Peopletools system database which you don't want).
If you have a long list of features, be sure there is something like this :
CHOSEN_FEATURE_LIST=PeopleSoft Absence Management,<...snipped for reading, this is the list of the features you checked when installing HCM...>,PeopleSoft HCM Demo Database,PeopleSoft HCM Database
CHOSEN_INSTALL_FEATURE_LIST=PeopleSoft Absence Management,<...snipped for reading, this is the list of the features you checked when installing HCM...>,PeopleSoft HCM Demo Database,PeopleSoft HCM Database
I tested it, if PeopleSoft HCM Database is unchecked during installation (and consequenty not in the feature list in the logfile), there's no option to install a SYS database later on.
If this is the case, you may want to reinstall the appl in the same directory. I do not think it will hurt.
