Well folks, we’ve been working hard over here in the Ten Six “Test it ‘till we break it” technology labs to really get a definitive set of steps written about the whole Deltek Cobra client/server, n-Tier deployment thing. The best way to accurately describe how a thing works is to experience it first-hand and then write it down. To that end, we setup some servers and then installed a basic Cobra client/server environment.
We then set about configuring the system so that Deltek Cobra users could easily integrate with Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM R8.2. The following is a summary of the results. You can also download the final 40 page Ebook we produced that gives all the details you’ll need to setup a fully functional client/server or n-Tier environment.
Why Client/Server or n-Tier?
The installation of a client/server or an n-Tier deployment makes a lot of sense the moment you wish to roll Deltek Cobra out to more than one user. The trick to all this is in understanding the details of an client/server or n-Tier deployment, and then further to that, understanding what needs to be done when it comes to integration with such database scheduling tools as Primavera P6 EPPM. Deltek has well documented the steps for installing a pretty sophisticated n-Tier deployment in their materials.
However, when it comes to getting an eyeball on some nitty-gritty with regard to making all this client/server and n-Tier stuff work with the Integration Wizard…well, that’s a little more implicit than explicit. So, we at Ten Six thought you might appreciate our latest Ebook in a drains-up, ‘For Dummies’ style guide to Primavera P6 integration from within an n-Tier or client/server Cobra system.

Presenting our latest Ten Six publication; Cobra – Primavera P6 integration Configuration for Client Server and n-Tier deployments. This 40 page Ebook is based on actual installations of functioning client/server and n-Tier environments.
It provides detailed instructions for the installation, configuration and execution of P6 Integration API and ODBC configuration setups. No other document brings this much detail together in one place for this specific, yet commonly encountered challenge. Where do I install such things as the Integration API and ODBC data sources? How should these be configured? What problems might I encounter along the way? What does ‘Directory not accessible from server.” mean?
