Known problems and workarounds

Data Collection Component HotFix

As part of Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence (RRDI), the Data Collection Component (DCC) is an alternative to the Insight and Java based ETL for CLM products, designed to address key performance and deployment concerns with the current ETL solutions. DCC is an optionally-installable component of RRDI.

If you wish to use DCC, you must apply a HotFix to enable the DCC functionality. Please contact IBM technical support for details and reference "DCF #1675793".

In version 5.0, DCC does not support the following:

  • Collecting data from non-CLM applications.
  • Customizing the data collection process.
  • Using the RIDW.H_* historical metrics in a custom RRDI report.
  • Collecting source code sizing metrics in the table RIDW.F_FILE_STREAM_METRICS.
  • Data warehouses hosted in DB2/i or DB2/z.

If you require the above capabilities, you should not use DCC at this time.

Some prerequisite library changes on Linux

The prerequisite requirement on the openmotif library has changed. If the system which the RRDI is installed does not have the proper libXm version, the Install Manager may report an install failure like
    CogUninstall: /opt/IBM/RRDI1/cognos/uninstall/uninst not found
Please look at this tech note for more details.

For a list of the known problems and workarounds, published as jazz.net workaround articles, in this release, view the Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 5.0 workaround articles jazz.net query.

Unzipping the RRDI Installation repositories on Linux and Windows

You may experience problem to unzip the RRDI Installation repositories zip files on some releases of Windows and Linux platforms. This is due to a known defect on these platforms that prevent their "unzip" utility to unzip files bigger than 2 GBytes.

The workaround to this defect is to use a different tool to unzip the RRDI distribution.

If you experience unzip issues on any version of linux, you can use a tool like 7zip which can be downloaded from RPM resource p7zip

On many versions of Windows, unzipping using the default Extract All feature may even fail silently to properly unzip the files which will result in failures when installing/upgrading RRDI. 7zip can also be use to overcome this limitation. You can get 7zip for Windows from its download page.
