Some of you may have noticed this already but I recently saw that some of the PeopleSoft 9.2 Application media had been remastered.
- HCM 9.2 was updated on E-delivery at the end of October. It includes patches from Update Image 9. Image 9 was also released as a certified Upgrade Demo Image.
- FSCM 9.2 was updated at the end of September. It includes patches from Update Image 5 which also released as a certified Upgrade Demo Image.
- ELM 9.2 was updated in early October and contains patches from Update Image 6. As with the others it also is a certified upgrade image.
- CRM 9.2 looks updated at the end of September as well, but it does not indicate if any patches from an Update Image are included. Since there is not currently a supported Upgrade Image other than CRM 9.2.000 it would not make sense that this media include the patches. This may indicate it was updated because PeopleTools 8.53 was pulled and 8.54 added to the collection. I have not downloaded it to look.
In addition the other change I noticed was that all PeopleTools 8.53 media has been pulled. If you need something from the 8.53 media set you will need to open a non-tech SR. This seems to be a change from the previous strategy of keeping the current plus one previous Tools set available for download. I’m not on E-delivery all that often so who knows, maybe they changed that a while ago.
Either way, those looking to start upgrades or may have recently started the process using media they downloaded prior to end of September should evaluate where they are and possibly grab this new media. Jumping straight to a Update Image would be beneficial. Those looking to avoid PeopleTools 8.54 for some reason may want to avoid these though because at least HCM, FSCM, and ELM will already be 8.54 PeopleTools in the database.
