PeopleSoft database to be offline for several days in fall
A split and upgrade in the PeopleSoft database this fall will take the system offline for about five days. Information Technology has scheduled the work tentatively for October to minimize disruption to campus services for students and employees.
Oracle, PeopleSoft’s vendor, is requiring a separation in student and employee databases in the system. Most users will not notice any change. The split will have the most impact on units that provide business services to the campus community, such as admissions, the registrar’s office, student records, financial aid, human resources and payroll.
IT is working closely with those units on the database change and plans to provide explanatory labeling on ULink for people who access the system infrequently so they know which database to access.
The change does not affect Peoplesoft Financials.
IT will remind the campus community through UofL Today about the system being offline as the October implementation approaches.
