Primavera P6 Tested Configurations Archive
Oracle Primavera publishes a tested configurations document with every release of Primavera P6 Professional and Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM). The purpose of the document is to inform IT professionals what versions of software should be used for a particular version of the P6 deployment. This includes, the operating system, database, java, browser and web server, etc.
If you are experiencing any issues with your Primavera P6 system, particularly the EPPM deployment, you should consult the Tested Configurations document for your particular release. You can verify that you have used a supported browser, java version, database, web server etc., in your Primavera P6 deployment. If one of these elements is incorrect it can impact the performance of the system, and possibly introduce errors to its functionality.
Primavera P6 EPPM is particularly sensitive to version issues, particularly when it comes to browsers and Java. Be certain you have the correct version installed. Also check that updates to Java haven’t happened automatically. Java’s track record for backward compatibility with the Primavera P6 suite is not good. If your Java version has advanced too far ahead to the supported version described in your tested config.xls file, the program will suffer functional and performance issues, or stop working entirely. The same goes for your browser updates.
