Many customers contact us for information on best practices for deploying the Secure Enterprise Search-based global search in PeopleSoft. To assist with this, we've created a Knowledge Document in My Oracle Support that contains lots of useful information. This document has links to the following subjects and more:
- How to implement High Availability
- PeopleTools Online help for Search
- Reference material like the Administrator's guide and the Installation guide
- Performance guidelines

A useful new document is available on Oracle support that describes steps to implement High Availability for Oracle SES 18.104.22.168. This approach uses a 4-node WebLogic Server cluster and 3-node Oracle RAC Database. Get the doc here.
Note: This document does not contain information on ESS cluster scale out. The document will be updated soon to provide that information. ESS cluster scale out is an optional step, and customers can set up other portions first.

Several questions have arisen about the deployment of SES and how to administer it and insure optimum performance. People have also asked about what versions are supported on various platforms. To address the most common of these questions, we are posting this list of tips.
SES 22.214.171.124 does not support some of the platforms supported by PeopleTools, such as Windows 2012 and AIX 7.1. However, PeopleSoft and SES can use different operating system platforms when SES is deployed on a separate machine.
SES 126.96.36.199 will have the required platform support for PT 8.53 in the future. We are planning to certify PT 8.53 once the testing is complete in 8.54 development and all platform support is released for 188.8.131.52.
We recommend running SES on a separate machine (from your apps) for two reasons:
1. SES bundles specific WebLogic, Java, and Oracle DB versions and might need different OS patches at a minimum than PeopleSoft. By having SES run on a different machine, these pre-requisites can be managed better through their lifecycle independenly for PeopleSoft and SES.
2. SES is resource intensive - it runs it's own WebLogic and Oracle database. By having SES run on its own machine, sufficient resources can be allocated to SES and free the PeopleSoft servers from impacts of SES load patterns.
We will be providing a comprehensive red paper covering PeopleSoft/SES administration in the near future, but until that is published, we'll post tips on this blog.
