Planned System Outage for PeopleSoft Upgrade

The PeopleSoft system will be shut down after 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 2 and will remain down until 6 a.m. on Monday, October 6.

During this time, the PeopleSoft Upgrade Project team will be completing the tasks necessary to complete the final steps of upgrading the PeopleSoft applications from version 9.0 to version 9.2.  The system will not be available for access by any County staff.

Many of you have shortcuts on your desktop and/or favorites stored in your internet browsers with the link to the current PeopleSoft 9.0 environment.  As part of the upgrade the PeopleSoft applications will be moving to new servers, and there will be a new URL to access the PeopleSoft 9.2 production environment.  All staff will need to replace any shortcuts, and/or favorites stored on computers.

The Project Team is working with KCIT to ensure all links available on any King County website are updated with the new link.

Should any staff use an old link, they will be taken to a page that will inform them of the change and will provide a link to the upgraded PeopleSoft Production environment.

There will be a communication sent out early Monday, October 6 informing all County staff of the new PeopleSoft 9.2 Production environment URL to be used to access the upgraded system.

Should you encounter any problem with the new URL, please call the KCIT Help Desk at 263-HELP (4357).
