We're using RTC CCM for production systems. Does RTC support to be deployed to WebSphere Cluster? We're using WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment

I tried googling and searching here, however so far no luck. If there's official document regarding the issue, please help point it out. 

Thanks in advance.

 From this link,, I see that a "Clustering Feature Key File" is needed for deploying RTC on clustered WAS. Is this file contained in RTC 6.0.3 or higher version?

This type of clustering is no longer supported and a new RTC clustering feature was introduced in RTC 6.0.4.

 Hi Ralph,

Do you mean this, so we use WAS Liberty since 6.0.4, right?

that is the new clustering and you can find it in the documentation and in the new and note worthy as well. It requires liberty profile.

You don't even mention the RTC version. But the simple answer is no.

 Yes RTC support WAS ND for failover, not for load balancing
