Abstract: Who would have guessed that so many people were interested in Oracle/Primavera P6 databases? Perhaps it has something to do with keeping their business running. Small company, P6 stand-alone installations typically suffer from the poor training of their IT personnel. Whatever the motivation, we present a continuation of our series on fixing and improving your databases for P6 stand-alone users.

This paper begins by updating our previous list of available database servers for P6. We revise the problem of database full with actual solutions. We will talk about the background process, minor database corruption issues, and speeding-up P6 performance due to bogged-down databases. This paper is presented by a person who is not in the business of selling IT services.
