 Version (


Rational Team Concert Client für Eclipse IDE
 Version (3.0.1003.RTC-I20120326-1442-r3013)

 Version (        

The system-i config is as follows:
i-power5 software V6R1

In the next two months we will upgrade to the following configuration:

System Power7 V7R1

Must we particularly follow there something or will everything function furthermore?

Can we run the same configuration for RTC?

Hi Andreas,

You should be able to run the same configuration for RTC and not have to follow any process.  You will however need to make sure you have all the latest PTF's applied for V7R1 that RTC requires.

Hi Kevin,

thanks for your answer, did you have a list of the required PTF's. I think we will have the latest CUM PTF because we will make this change with an IBM Buisness partner from Austria.

The PTF requirements for 3.0.1.x are listed on the System Requirements page:
