150 Implementing PeopleSoft Enterprise on xSeries and Linux
13.3.2 Setting up a distribution server
To set up a PeopleSoft distribution server, log in to your PeopleSoft environment
and select PeopleTools → Process Scheduler → Servers. Enter the server
name for the distribution server you want to configure; this will usually be of the
form PSOS, such as PSNT, PSUNX, or PSOS390. You should see a page similar
to that in Figure 13-2.
Figure 13-2 Distribution server
On the Distribution tab of the server page, enter the name of the Distribution
Node you have created in the previous section (or click the magnifying glass icon
to perform a lookup on all available nodes). Enter the maximum number of times
the server will attempt to send a report to the repository before timeout, and the
time interval between each attempt. System files are logs, messages and trace
files from processes that do not generate reports. They can also be moved to the
report repository if you select the approrpiate checkbox. When you are satisfied
with the configuration, click Save.
You should reboot the Process Scheduler server. Using the psadmin utility, select
2) Stop a Process Scheduler Server then 1) Start a Process Scheduler
13.4 Testing Process Scheduler setup
The easiest way to test the Process Scheduler is to run a process and check the
results. SQR processes are generally automatically configured, and PeopleSoft
supplies a number of scripts specifically created for testing and verification.
