Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi colleagues,

I have some clarifications here,  I have successfully installed the P6 EPPM on a server with the following components:

1.) MS SQL Server 2005 Express

2.) Installed the P6 EPPM database

3.) Configured the P6 EPPM via Configuration Wizard

4.) Installed/created/edited the P6 Weblogic domain

5.) Deployed P6 Weblogic

With all of these, I can now access the P6 Web and view the dashboards.  Also I installed the P6 Professional client on the same server machine which whatever I do in this P6 Professional application like adding new projects, also appears in the web.

And then, I also installed a P6 Professional Client application on another machine(laptop) connecting to its installed local EPPM database so he doesn't have admin functions like EPS, OBS and Admin option in Menu Bar.  Still on this machine(laptop), I have also successfully connected to the P6 Web of the server I mentioned earlier through the same IP address, so whatever I do in the P6 Wed dashboards in the server, also appears to the other machine(laptop) in web access. 

But my question now are:

a.) If this machine(laptop) works offline using his P6 Professional, how can his updated projects can be seen in P6 Web? To the entire team?  Does he need to manually export and then import the updated project into the P6 web once he connects in the internet after working offline?

b.) Or, is there a way he could access the central database server where the weblogic domain resides?  So he doesn't need to manually export/import project data/updates and this can be seen automatically in web as well as the entire team.

go to 'All Programs'' --> 'Microsoft SQL Server' --> 'Configuration Tools' --> 'SQL Server Configuration Manager'
SQL Server Config Mngr window will open. In the right hand site of the window you will see different data bases. Right Click on the SQL Server 'Primavera' and click 'start'.
Then try again to log in in Primavera.
