      Hi Suma,

      As mentioned clearly in the error this problem is related to connection to Oracle DB.
      There could be several reason behind it. Check for the firewall access. Also chekc the tnsname.ora file for proper configuration.
      You can also use “tnsping” command in command prompt to check if connectivity is proper or not.

      First check the connectivity of Oracle DB then try to create table in DB.

      Please let me know if you need more help.
