Re: Debugging Functionality in Peoplesoft

Thanks changing the port from 9500 worked. Prior to this change I would see the debug process doing startup then look at server status and its not there...
This was my 1st env so there should not have been any conflict...dont know :( but I've tried starting additional domains, changing port each time and they start sucessfully. Thx
