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 all,

I just installed the primavera on a virtual machine and got no error during the installation. But now dealing with configuration stuff.

Could  anyone please tell me how to configure the database. Didn't primavera already install and configure the database during the installation? I found  many Username and Password combinations and the ones listed above but any of them didn't work. The error is: "invalid username/password; logon denied).

why is this so hard, please someone who has the chance to communicate with  primavera authorities, he/she let them know that this configuration story sucks.


Thanks in advance.

You cannot retrieve the Oracle Database password but you cna reset it.  After that, you will need to deal with the fact that P6 now has the wrong password, but that is another procedure.  Good luck!


To change the password for database users, ADMPRM$PM, PRIVPRM$PM, PUBPRM$PM do the following:

Login to SQLPlus by first running the command prompt (Windows Start Button/Run, “cmd” or Windows Start Button/All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt)  Then at the C:> prompt,

c:\>sqlplus / as sysdba

The prompt will turn into an SQL> prompt, i.e. “SQL>”.  Type the following:

SQL> alter user ADMPRM$PM identified by <new_pass>;

Where <new_pass> is the new password you specify for the user.  Don’t forget to enter the “;” at the end, or you will be prompted for the 2ndhalf of your entry “;” with a “?” prompt.  (In that case, just enter the ";".)

You can repeat the alter user command for each user password that you would like to change. 

To exit SQLPlus, type


 and Return.  To exit the windows command prompt, also type,


and Return.
