PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Native OS DPK Install

This is the step-by-step process that I took to install the Campus Solutions 9.2 application to a Windows  operating system using the Native OS deployment package (DPK).  Using the DPK to deploy the environment took several failed attempts before I was able to get it working properly. This tutorial was done using CS PUM image 1 and it is likely that the deployment steps will change in future PUM images.

Create two folders in the base of your C drive.  Name the first one CS92_DPK (path: C:\CS92_DPK) and the second one psft (path: C:\psft).  Note: Subsequent steps in this tutorial assume that you are using the same naming conventions that are specified in this step.

Go to the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) homepage and navigate to the Campus Solutions Update Image Homepage
