No storage-enabled nodes exist for service DistributedSessions in PIA_weblogic.log

When you try to setup Coherence*Web with PeopleSoft, if you see this message “No storage-enabled nodes exist for service DistributedSessions” in PIA_weblogic.log, you have probably misconfigured your Cache Server.
The Cache Server is starting with it’s own configuration defined in coherence-cache-config.xml.
In that file you need to declare the Cache Service named “DistributedSessions” like this:
      <local-storage system-property="tangosol.coherence.session.localstorage">true</local-storage>

Content/Portal URL not defined for node PSFT_EP (262,81)

When verifying PeopleSoft and Oracle Secure Enterprise Search connectivity, you may face an error at "STEP 2: Deploy":

Content/Portal URL not defined for node PSFT_EP (262,81) PTSF_FEED.SESFeedDataSource.OnExecute  Name:execute  PCPC:16048  Statement:279
Called from:PTFP_FEED.Feed.OnExecute  Name:execute  Statement:677

Called from:PTFP_FEED.FeedFactory.OnExecute  Name:getFeedDoc  Statement:244

Called from:PTSF_RNDTRP_WRK.PTSF_RNDTRIP_CRAWL.FieldChange  Statement:46

Content/Portal URL not defined for node %1

 This is probably because you forgot the basics ? You must check that the Portal Node is configured (and the Integration Broker)!

Navigate to PeopleTools > Portal > Node Definitions
Select PSFT_EP node (if your are configuring ses with PeopleSoft Finance), then Portal tab.

You must configure "Content URI Text" and "Portal URI Text".

After this, STEP 2 should work fine.
