Would need a quick help from you in resolving an installation problem we face when trying to install IBM BPM Standard v8.5.5 in a Win Server 2012 machine.
When trying to install IBM BPM 8.5.5 in Typical mode(in machine 1) with Oracle DB(installed and configured in machine 2 in the same network), we get 'This Database Connection Property is Invalid' inline error message when i click test connection after entering the Oracle DB user names and password . Am able to connect to the Oracle and all IBM BPM related DBs created via Oracle SQL Developer(from machine 1). Let Me know if you could help us with whats wrong and how to get over this problem.
