      2. Unzip the file for the trial product licenses repository
      3. Install using Installation Manager
  2. Install the RRC Browser Add-Ons:
    • If using a Web Installer:
      1. Close all web browsers
      2. Run the appropriate Launchpad executable

Note: Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager and Rational Requirements Composer share a common install that deploys the Jazz Team Server and the Change and Configuration Management, Quality Management and Requirements Management applications. The licenses that are installed in the Jazz Team Server provide access to the capabilities provided by the applications. This means you can install any of the three products to try the full set of collaborative lifecycle management capabilities. To learn more about applications, capabilities and product license keys, read the Building products from applications blog post.

Note: During the installation process you have the option to install different applications. It is possible to only install a subset of the applications. These options are for advanced install scenarios such as distributing the applications across multiple servers or deploying multiple applications of the same type within an application group. These scenarios are not yet fully documented and should only be used if you understand the implications.

Setup the server

After installation follow the Jazz Team Server setup wizard at http://myserver/jts/setup (where http://myserver is the URL for your server) to perform the setup for the Jazz Team Server and the installed applications.
