    1825895

      Hi Carla, Other PS Upgrade Experts,

      Request expert opinion on upgrade path approaches on PeopleSoft FSCM9.1 to 9.2. We need to upgrade from Source (PT8.54, Fin 9.1, DB Oracle 12.1) to Target (PT8.56, Fin9.2, DB Oracle 12.2).

       

      Approach1:

      1. Perform Apps-ONLY Upgrade from Fin9.1 to 9.2, keeping existing PT 8.54 (as FSCM 9.2 is certified with min PT8.53)
      2. Perform Tools-ONLY Upgrade from PT8.54 to PT 8.56.01 (or higher available “minor” patch).
      3. Upgrade Oracle DB from 12.1 to 12.2

      Current FSCM Upgrade Home Page certifies PT8.55.05 (or higher “minor” patch) for FSCM 9.1 to 9.2 PI 19 Upgrade path. If that means, FSCM 9.1 to 9.2 Upgrade has to necessarily have PT8.55.05 (and cannot work with PT8.54), we need to consider Approach2.

       

       

      Approach2:

      2 step PS Upgrade:

      1. Tools + Apps Upgrade: Upgrade from PT8.54 to PT8.55.05 (or higher “minor” patch) and thereafter Fin9.1 to 9.2 PI 19. DB version stays on existing Oracle 12.1  for both source and target during this Tools + Apps Upgrade.
      2. Tools-ONLY Upgrade: Upgrade from PT8.55.05 (or higher “minor” patch) to PT 8.56.01 (or higher available “minor” patch).
      3. Upgrade Oracle DB from 12.1 to 12.2

      As Approach2 is 2 step Upgrade, request your inputs on our preferred Approach3 (one step Upgrade)

       

      Approach3:

      As we plan to initiate this Upgrade pursuit in end of Oct 2017, is Oracle planning to certify PT8.56.xx with FSCM 9.1 to 9.2 (certified PI) by Oct 2017? If yes, we can follow one step upgrade of PT8.54 to  PT8.56.xx, followed by Fin9.1 to 9.2 (certified PI). Thereafter, Upgrade Oracle DB from 12.1 to 12.2. Your views please.

       

      Thanks in advance.
