Rational Quality Manager 4.0.1
Upgrading to Rational Quality Manager 4.0.1
Review the following considerations before you upgrade to version 4.0.1.Apply Hotfix to 4.0.1 Prior to Upgrading or Do a Full Reindex After Upgrading to 4.0.1.
Before upgrading, you should apply a hotfix to your 4.0.1 install. See the technote Upgrades to 4.0.1 create a significantly larger, incorrect index - Hotfix is required before the upgrade.Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence
If you use the optional program Rational® Reporting for Development Intelligence to customize reports, you should upgrade to the corresponding Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 2.0.1 release. You must upgrade Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence before you upgrade your server applications. For more information about Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence, see the related section in Reporting and the upgrade process.Rational Insight
The Rational Insight 220.127.116.11 fix pack is compatible with this 4.0.1 release. First, you must upgrade the Jazz Team Server to version 4.0.1. The applications can stay at version 4.0.0.x releases, but you must configure the "new with 18.104.22.168" data manager ETLs from Jazz Team Server 4.0.1. For more information about Rational Insight 22.214.171.124, see the related section in Reporting and the upgrade process and Upgrading to Rational Insight 126.96.36.199.Change and Configuration Management, Quality Management, and Requirements Management
If you are upgrading any of the Change and Configuration Management (CCM), Quality Management (QM), and Requirements Management (RM) applications from versions 3.0.1.x, 4.0, or 4.0.1 RC3, see Upgrading to version 4.0.1. If you are upgrading from a version 2 release, you must first upgrade to a version 3 release, preferably the latest 3.0.1.x release. For more information, see CLM 2011: Upgrading to the Rational solution for CLM.
If your deployment includes the RM application, note these two issues:
- You should plan to upgrade the Requirements Management application at the same time as the Jazz Team Server to avoid ETL issues. For more information, see Work item 68057: RM 188.8.131.52 ETL fails after upgrade of JTS to 4.0.1.
- Ensure that the 4.0 RM Application-Internal license is assigned to the rm_user before you start the RM online migration to avoid licensing issues. For more information, see Work item 68474: RRC online migration fails with licensing errors for rm_user. This license assignment is especially important if you are upgrading from a version 3.0.1.x release, because this error requires restoring from a backup and restarting.
