Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to start the WebLogic Admin server during the initial P6 EPPM domain configuration using the P6 EPPM Configuration Wizard (eppmconfig.cmd), the following command prompt is displayed with the following message:

"Waiting to connect, 20 seconds..." the connection count downs from 20 seconds and continues to loop indefinitely.

Another command prompt is displayed with the following message: java\jdk<$version> unexpected version at this time

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Run the EPPM configuration wizard using eppmconfig.cmd
  2. Enter in the database details and the configuration details to create a new P6 EPPM WebLogic domain
  3. The condition occurs at the last step when the process attempts to configure and connect to the admin server
