Fixes to Rational Reporting

In addition, this release includes fixes to numerous defects related to RQM reporting. These include issues with Oracle support, migration support, data collection fixes, and many individual report fixes.

For Rational Insight users, this release contains a new version of the xdc file, called rqm3011.xdc. After applying the fix, you need to re-download the xdc file and configure it to be used with Insight. The new rqm3011.xdc replaces the old rqm301.xdc file. If you made customization to the old file, you need to manually re-apply or merge your customizations For details, see New features in Rational  Insight and Importing and merging configurations files.

Also for Rational Insight users, this release includes a new version of the Cognos Data Manager Package (RQM).pkg. You need to download it from the patched server and import it into your Data Manager catalog. You will see new RQM jobs labeled with a 3.0.1.1 postfix. You need to use these jobs with this release. The Cognos Data Manager Package (CLM).pkg  jobs provided by the Jazz Team Server have also been updated to automatically use these new 3.0.1.1 jobs. For details, see Integrating report packages with Rational Insight.

Note: This release does not include a fix to the following Rational Reporting enhancement request: There should be a message indicating why QM ETLs are not executing after upgrading using an existing data warehouse but before running migrateDatawarehouse command (56032)
