    I wish I had a better answer for you. Even a simple demo installation is no trivial matter.

    I don’t remember ever timing the database creation wizard, but I am pretty sure it takes longer than 30 minutes. I would guess several hours at the least. It is something that you let run overnight and hope that it is done when you come back in the morning.

    Also, what kind of hardware are you using. PeopleSoft is very resource intensive — we are running inside of VMWare (which takes some overhead), but we have 2Gb of RAM. Even so, it is still a little slow.

    Hope that helps,
