ESUP Ready to Copy Databases

Core PeopleSoft applications (HR, Student, and Finance) may experience intermittent disruption for approximately two hours tomorrow, between 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. During this time, database administrators will prepare the databases for a copy of the data from the PeopleSoft applications to use during the testing phases for the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program (ESUP). The timing of this snapshot is critical, as ESUP must use payroll information from a particular stage in the payroll process to ensure accuracy during testing.

ESUP has worked closely with IT’s service owners to minimize disruption across the University. Updated information will be posted to the University’s system status page during the two-hour block. In addition, people may refer to any of the following change tickets through ServiceNow:

  • Finance: CHG0035186
  • Student: CHG0035187
  • HRMS: CHG0035188

This date and time were determined based on the end of a payroll cycle, as requested from the ESUP HRMS work stream, and were selected in close coordination with the Student and Financial work streams to be as minimally intrusive as possible. The two-hour window allows for “quiet hours” where batch scheduling and messages going between the systems will be paused. The team anticipates completing these activities before 7:00 p.m. and will re-start the normal batch cycle and communications queues at that time.
