Re: PeopleSoft DBA Forum SSL and REN server
- Unfortunately, I suspect REN won't be going away any time soon.
During our Financials 8.9 upgrade, we found that certain online
processing (e.g. running the budget checking process directly from a
Voucher) now throws an error message if there is no REN Server
configured. They probably made this change when they converted the
Budget Processor from COBOL to App Engine.
It is possible to implement an RPS using WebLogic. But our experience
suggests it is not very reliable. In fact, PeopleSoft recommends
against it; they suggest using one of the other supported methods,
like Apache. See also Solution 200739673, and the list of supported RPS:
In the PeopleTools 8.48 Release Notes, I believe I recall seeing that
SSL connections directory to the REN Server will be supported, except
on AIX (doh!).
I wish we could get rid of this thing without customizing code or
causing people to receive error messages (of course, it's partly
broken now, so people receive error messages anyway).
