Service Administration Tip: Environment for Change Assistant

This tip helps with getting Change Assistant to run. You have to get all the pieces talking together in order to use Change Assistant.

Start with the Hub

Log into URL http://<server&gt;:<port>/PSEMHub/hub

This page will tell you what processes are connected to the hub.

Determining the port —
check the configuration file: <weblogic home>\config.xml
Domain tag > Server tag > ListenPort attribute

or check the weblogic administration console
Click on Servers under Domain Configurations — Network Configuration
The port number should be listed in the Listen Port column.

If the hub is not running
change directory to <PIA home>/
one time startup:
startManagedWebLogic PSEMHUB
(all capitals for the PSEMHUB)
or install as a service
installNTService PSEMHUB
(make sure to also start the service)
Update: In Tools 8.49, the path is changed to <PIA home>/peoplesoft/bin

Resources
“Running the Hub on Multiple Servers”

Agent

Configure:
change the file — <ps home>/PSEMAgent/envmetadata/config/configuration.properties
Change property hubURL to the valid URL for the Hub discussed above
Change the windowsdriverstocrawl or the unixdriverstocrawl to the locations where PeopleSoft is installed

Start the agent
change directory to: <ps home>/PSEMAgent
run StartAgent
or
change directory to: <ps home>/bin/server/WinX86
run psemAgentService /install <ps home>/PSEMAgent

Server Administration Tip: Logging Into the Weblogic Console

URL:
http://<hostname&gt;:<port>/console
Note: the port may or may not be the same port number as the port you use for PeopleSoft.

Directories
web logic is generally installed in <ps home>\webserv\
generally there is only 1 folder in <ps home>\webserv and that is the domain name

Determining the host name and port
look in: <weblogic home>\setEnv.cmd
SET ADMINSERVER_PROTOCOL=HTTP
SET ADMINSERVER_PORT=<port number>
SET ADMINSERVER_HOSTNAME=<server name>
SET ADMINSERVER_SERVERNAME=WebLoginAdmin

or you can look in: <weblogic home>\config.xml
Domain tag > Server tag > ListenPort attribute

Default Login
user: system
password: password

Starting the Console
if it doesn’t connect, you may have to start it manually
startWebLogicAdmin
same directory as setEnv.cmd

Installing as a service
installNTService
with no parameters
