When Rational Requirements Composer is deployed in a distributed environment, the initial login fails on Internet Explorer 8
If Rational Requirements Composer is deployed in a distributed topology where the RM application and Jazz Team Server are in separate application containers, users might experience a problem when they initially try to log in to Rational Requirements Composer on Internet Explorer 8. In particular, the login fails with this error: Invalid path to authentication servlet.: /.

To work around this problem, refresh the browser and try to log in again. When you try to log in again, a "collaborate with server..." prompt is shown, which you can use to communicate with Jazz Team Server and proceed past the login sequence. Alternatively, you can avoid the problem by using a different browser, such as Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox 17 ESR.

Remote requirements dashboard widgets cannot be viewed after upgrading Rational Requirements Composer from 2.x to interim fix 5
After you upgrade from a release of version 2 to version 3.0.16 interim fix 5, you might experience a problem viewing a remote requirements widget on a dashboard. This problem occurs only when all of the following statements are true:

  1. You have two or more Change and Configuration Management (CCM) 3.0 applications associated with one 3.0 Jazz Team Server.
  2. You first upgraded Jazz Team Server and one of the CCM 3.0 applications to version interim fix 5.
  3. Before you upgraded the RM application to interim fix 5, you added a remote requirements widget to one of the project or team area dashboards in the CCM 3.0 application.
  4. You then upgraded the RM application from 2.x to interim fix 5. At this point, the remote widget will be broken.

The widgets on all dashboards that are associated with Jazz Team Server will be fixed.
