Did you try to configure the database after your saw the error? Check if these windows services are running: OracleXE and OracleXETNSListener.
If you have access to the KnowledgeBase, refer to solution ID 989573.1.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your quick response.
Honestly speaking, I'm kind of scared that if I go ahead reconfiguring it, I might loose my data in the database, so I am wondering how can I do the full backup before taking this step?
Can I just copy some database files to be on the safe side or should I run specific commands to take the back so if case if anything goes wrong I do have something to restore.
Also I don't have the access to the knowledge-base either...
You will be configuring the connection, it shouldnt mess with the database at all. You are making sure the connection between P6 and the database is setup correctly. When you click on the elipses (...) next to database on the log in screen, does it show anything under "Details"?
That being said there will be a way to backup/copy the database using the database utility not P6. With SQL it is fairly easy so I assume in Oracle it should be too. The database tool wont be application specific so you will need to look at the Oracle database documentation. For SQL it can be as simple as highlighting the P6 database (PMDB) and running the backup tool. You end result is a .mdf and .ldf which are your backup files. Don't know what Oracle's will look like.
Hope this helps.
