Hi,

I would like to test run CLM on my laptop.  I tried installing and ran into too much configuration work.

Is there a document that steps me in through installing CLM on a laptop without a server?

Please let me know because I would like to try out this package. I'd like to speak to an IT professional as well.

Thank you.

To test CLM on a laptop there is a simple express setup option that uses Apache Tomcat (for the server) and Derby for the database. Then once it is setup you can install a sample project to test things.

There is a knowledge center page, for completing the setup of CLM and you will see towards the bottom something like

If you set up the default Derby database and Apache Tomcat server, set up the server by running the setup wizard and following the steps for express setup.

which has steps like

  1. Point your Web browser to the following address: https://[fully qualified hostname]:9443/jts/setup .
  2. Type ADMIN (case-sensitive) in both the User ID and Password fields. Click Log In.
  3. On the Welcome page, select Express Setup. Click Next.
  4. On the Configure Public URI page, provide a Public URI Root that is of the form https://[fully qualified hostname]:9443/jts and select the check box to confirm that you have read and understood the recommendations on this page. Click Test Connection. After the test is successful, click Next.
    Important:

    A [fully qualified hostname] is the host name along with the DNS domain reference of the machine on which the Jazz™ Team Server is installed.

    An example of a good [fully qualified hostname] is clmwb.example.com .

    Examples of bad [fully qualified hostname] are localhost and an IP address.

...

Typically the setup and installation of the sample on a laptop takes 30 mins

Gentlemen,

Thank you for the answers.  I will tinker with it and see how it goes. 

About the sandbox:

I tried using it and I could not select any items from the pull-down menu.  Seems like a sandbox bug?

The sandbox appeared very limited or for some reason ran poorly.  I  tried two different sanboxes.

 

Best,

Hello Robin,

I am still having trouble understanding the process.  First, where will I install the Jazz Team Server?  I am confused here. I'd like the Jazz.net site to provide me the server on which to install.  I work in an environment where I don't have admin rights to make such installs.  I'd like the CLM environment to be on my local machine if that is possible. 

I'd appreciate it if you walk me through, like "for Dummies" tutorial, of the top level requirements for running CLM, with some drill down details.

If your requirement is to test the various features & capabilities of CLM, you can also utilize our IBM Jazz Sandbox environments (without having to install anything on your laptop)

As quoted in the IBM Jazz Sandbox homepage: https://jazz.net/products/sandbox/

In a sandbox trial you can:

  • Customize your project area
  • Explore the features and capabilities
  • Connect with a Web browser or with any supported client, like clients for Eclipse or Microsoft Visual Studio
  • Invite others to collaborate in your test area

Please review the information in the Sandbox homepage and create a new CLM sandbox if it meets your requirements.

Best regards

Pavan

Hello Pavan,

Could you elaborate on Sandbox.  I though I had run the Sandbox but I could not use the pulldown menus.  If I pull down and try to look what is in the menu it immediately disappears.

Thank you

1. The first thing to do is to download CLM from the jazz.net  https://jazz.net/downloads/clm/releases/5.0 using the web installer on this page
2. This will install the installation manager and download the software by default to C:/Program Files/IBM. Because this folder needs admin privileges during the installation you can specify another folder like C:/clm
3. If you installed on a Windows system, verify that the Start the Jazz Team Server and Stop the Jazz Team Server menu options are available from the Windows Start menu. To check for the menu options, click Start > All Programs > IBM Collaborative Lifecycle Management.
then follow the instructions here to start the server
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/api/content/SSYMRC_5.0.0/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/m_s_server_installation_start_tomcat.html
4. You will see a cmd window flash up and then a second window and the server startup will begin. Once the server is started you will see something like Server startup in 203645 ms
5. Now follow the instructions here http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYMRC_5.0.0/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topi/t_running_express_setup.html?lang=en
6. If you do not have a fully qualified host name for your laptop
then you will need to put something in your hosts file
https://[fully qualified hostname]:9443/jts/setup 
found here C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc,  like 
127.0.0.1         clm.jkebanking.net           # Money That Matters server
use notepad for the editing
7. Once you have the fully qualified name then the cmd will look like this https://clm.jkebanking.net:9443/jts/setup
8. After several minutes you will be asked to log in. Use ADMIN/ADMIN for the user name and password
9. Once logged in choose express setup, follow the instructions to create a new admin account for the jazz server and the installation will begin setting up CLM.
10. Once the setup has finished you will need to active trial licenses - choose the CLM license at the bottom by clicking activate trial.
11. Once the express setup has finished you will see the JTS admin page where you can add users, and create/try the sample project.

Hello Vyacheslav

Here is a link to Getting Started with RDNG where we have used Sandbox as an option for enabling user to have an environment where they could perform the exercises listed in guide. Kindly have a look at the link to confirm that you have created the Sandbox Project(s) appropriately.

Upon successful completion of creating the Projects in the chosen Sandbox, an email notification with subject details "Jazz.net Sandbox: Connect to your new Sandbox project area" would also be sent.

This email will have direct links for accessing the project area via the web for all those capabilities that you have chosen when creating the Project. Please let me know if you are able to access the Projects. I have used FireFox browser 24.7 just a few minutes ago to create new Sandbox Projects and they are working ok for me.

Also, kindly let me know which pull down menus aren't working for you. Robin's latest update should be helpful in installing CLM locally on your laptop.
