PeopleTools 8.55 – Linux not Supported in this release Error – Windows 10 x64 – HCM Image 16

PeopleTools 8.55 is pretty exciting with added features and an entirely new delivery model. Using DPKs to install PUM Image 16 and PeopleTools 8.55 for VirtualBox might not sound very easy, but here’s an error I encountered along the way.

My VirtualBox guest runs on my Windows 10 PC running on a 64-bit machine. Upon running the mandatory PS Script to automate the OVA file creation process, it exited stating that the Platform Linux is not Supported in this release.

This might be the case for Windows machine as well. Here’s a screenshot of the error message.

And here’s the solution suggested by Oracle:

  1. Open the PS Script – psft_dpk_setup.ps1
  2. Go to line 82
  3. You would see this line : $dpk_platform = get_dpk_platform “${dpk_dir}”
  4. Just below that line, add
    $dpk_platform = "$dpk_platform".trim()
  5. Save and run the script, and you’re all done!

Hope this helps! 🙂
