HCM9.0: Resizing the Database

The database of my PeopleSoft HRMS 9.0 VMWare Image was larger than I expected. I had to get the database down to a manageable size so that we can easily make backup copies of the image. Here is what I did:

  • Starting Size: 63.6 Gb
  • Finishing Size: 39.8 Gb

Query to Determine Where to Free Up Space

SELECT a.tablespace_name,
total_free_space,
ROUND(total_free_space / 1042, 2) free_k,
ROUND(total_free_space / 1042 / 1042, 2) free_m,
ROUND(total_free_space / 1042 / 1042 / 1042, 2) free_g,
largest_free_extent,
total_size,
ROUND(total_free_space / total_size *100, 2) percent_free
FROM
(SELECT tablespace_name,
SUM(bytes) total_free_space,
MAX(bytes) largest_free_extent
FROM dba_free_space
GROUP BY tablespace_name)
a,
(SELECT tablespace_name,
SUM(bytes) total_size
FROM dba_data_files
GROUP BY tablespace_name)
b
WHERE a.tablespace_name = b.tablespace_name
ORDER BY 2 DESC;

Query to Determine Files for the Tablespace

SELECT file_name,
file_id,
tablespace_name,
bytes,
ROUND(bytes / 1042 / 1042, 2) mb,
maxbytes,
ROUND(maxbytes / 1042 / 1042, 2) maxmb,
(SELECT ROUND(SUM(bytes) / 1024 / 1024, 2) mb
FROM dba_segments
WHERE tablespace_name = a.tablespace_name
AND header_file = a.file_id)
used_mb,
(SELECT ROUND(((header_block + blocks) *8192) / 1024 / 1024, 2) end_mb
FROM dba_segments
WHERE tablespace_name = a.tablespace_name
AND header_block =
(SELECT MAX(header_block)
FROM dba_segments
WHERE tablespace_name = a.tablespace_name)
)
lastused_position
FROM dba_data_files a
WHERE tablespace_name = ‘PSDEFAULT’;

Ever been told that you can’t delete a file because a program has that file open or locked. Here is a tool that can help you determine what program is locking that file:

PeopleTools Tip: Finding a Component Interfaces

If you know the name of the component interface, you can easily find it in App Designer.  Just press Ctrl+O or File > Open and search for it by name.  But, what if you only know the name of the component that the component interface accesses?

You have to go to the database.  Try this SQL (replacing <Component_Name> with your actual component) :

SELECT * FROM PSBCDEFN
WHERE BCPGNAME = '<Component_Name>'

Getting Oracle 10.2.0.1 to Start Automatically

I previously blogged about installing PeopleSoft HRMS 9 on a VMWare Image. One of the problems I had was getting the database to start automatically with the service when the image boots. We constantly boot and shutdown the image since we can only have one copy of it running at a time.

In my case, the problem appears to be an Oracle bug. Installing a patch fixed the problem. But, here is everything I learned on the issue.

Patch

Downloading the Patch:

  • Log into http://metalink.oracle.com
  • Go to Patches and Updates
  • Click on Simple Search
  • Search for Patch “4547817“, Platform Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
  • Download (543M)

Installing the Patch:

  • Unzipped it
  • Stopped the Web Server, App Server, Process Scheduler, and the Database
  • Ran the setup.exe
  • See the log below, I had to run catupgrd.sql

After Upgrading the oradim log said this:
Tue Jun 12 17:16:50 2007
c:\oracle\db10g\bin\oradim.exe -startup -sid hcm90 -usrpwd * -pfile c:\oracle\db10g\database\initHCM90.ora -log oradim.log -nocheck 0
Tue Jun 12 17:17:09 2007
ORA-01092: ORACLE instance terminated. Disconnection forced
ORA-00704: bootstrap process failure
ORA-39700: database must be opened with UPGRADE option

So, I used the upgrade option as describe here.

sqlplus /nolog
connect / as sysdba
startup upgrade
@c:\oracle\db10g\rdbms\admin\catupgrd.sql

The Service and the Registry

Deleting the Service:

At the command prompt> oradim -delete -sid <SID>

If either that doesn’t work or you have uninstalled, you have to open regedit and delete the following key:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\OracleService<SID>

Recreating Your Service:

At the command prompt>
oradim -new -sid <SID> -intpwd <password> -startmode AUTO -pfile <oracle_home>\database\init<SID>.ora

Other Registry Settings:

HKLM\Software\Oracle\Key_<Oracle Home Name>\ORA<SID>_AUTOSTART
Start the database when the service starts

HKLM\Software\Oracle\Key_<Oracle Home Name>\ORA<SID>_PFILE
Location of the Configuration File

HKLM\Software\Oracle\Key_<Oracle Home Name>\ORA<SID>_SHUTDOWN
Shutdown the database when the service stops

HKLM\Software\Oracle\Key_<Oracle Home Name>\ORA<SID>_SHUTDOWNTYPE

Installing HCM90

I am in the process of installing PeopleSoft HR 9.0 in a VMWare instance for development. I hope to give more details later in case I ever need to do any of this later on.

Here is what I started with:

  • Windows 2003 Server installed in VMWare
  • PeopleSoft HR 8.9/PeopleTools 8.46 installed
  • Oracle 9.2 installed
  • Weblogic

I uninstalled the PeopleSoft, Weblogic, and Oracle database to get back to just a basic Windows installation.

Everything is installed on the same virtual computer because this is just for testing and development. So, I am not worried about connections to/from any other computers with this instance. The PeopleSoft is a demo database so that we have some test data.

Here is what I have installed:

  • Oracle 10g
  • PeopleTools 8.49
  • PeopleSoft HR 9.0
  • Tuxedo 9.1
  • Oracle SOA Suite

Here are some of the problems that I have had:

  • Hard drive space — originally, the PeopleSoft fit on a 25 Gigabyte hard drive; I had to add another 80 Gigabyte drive for this version.
  • Tuxedo Version: PeopleTools 8.48 will install with Tuxedo 8.1; PeopleTools 8.49 requires Tuxedo 9.1
  • Services automatically starting: still working on this one (database, application server, process scheduler)
  • Creating the PeopleSoft database (modifying scripts, running out of hard drive space, restarting the install, etc.)

I will try to blog what I have learned as I get time and as I work through the problems I still have left. Please let me know if there is anything in particular you are interested in in the meantime.
