Symptoms

You are installing OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0. During the Configuration Progress step, you receive the following error:

WLST script task failed with status 1
Step setting up database connection failed
Configuration action 'Setting up Database Connection' has failed. Please check logs for details

You have verified that the database is up and running. 
You have verified that Service_Name is used when specifying the connection string within the install screens and not the SID.

But when you review the install log you see that the connect string contain a slash, '/', as opposed to a colon ':', which you had specified when declaring the connect string.
