Host Operating System Notes

  1. For CLM 2012, 32-bit servers are no longer supported except for small-scale evaluation or demonstration purposes. Only 64-bit servers can be used to host application servers running CLM applications.
  2. The RRC Converter application will not run on AIX, IBM i, Linux for Power, Solaris or z/OS systems. The server-side converter.war, needed to view graphical artifacts, must be deployed on a supported Windows, x86 Linux, or zLinux platform. If your RRC installation is on a platform not currently supported by the converter application, this document describes the delegated converter configuration option: Rational Requirements Composer Converter Application Installation.
  3. For IBM i, PTFs are required. For the latest IBM i Group PTFs, go to http://www-912.ibm.com/s_dir/sline003.nsf/GroupPTFs?OpenView&view=GroupPTFs.
  4. IBM z/OS System z 1.10 and 1.9 are only supported if you have paid for an IBM Lifecycle Extension for z/OS as mentioned on http://www.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/support/zos_eos_dates.html.
  5. Rational Team Concert promotion and deployment support for z/OS require the REXX runtime or REXX alternate libraries (REXX.**.SEAGLPA, or REXX.**.SEAGALT). If you do not have either the REXX Library or the REXX Alternate Library installed, you can install the REXX Alternate Library to fulfill the REXX Library requirement. The REXX Alternate Library is shipped as part of the z/OS operating system beginning with version 1.9. The Alternate Library is also available as a free download from http://www.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/.
  6. Reminder: RRDI can be installed on a separate server (platform). Additional RRDI platform information is included in the list above.
  7. The phrase "and future OS fix packs" includes Service Releases (SRs) and Updates (RHEL). "Fix pack" is IBM terminology for a minor release that includes fixes (vs. features).

A2. Server Virtualization (Non-Clustered)

Host operating systems may be virtualized using the following technologies (VMs are supported for application tier only):

Server Virtualization Operating Systems CLM Server RRDI Notes
IBM PowerVM Hypervisor (LPAR, DPAR, Micro-Partition) any supported version and future fix packs AIX, IBM i, RHEL & SUSE POWER 64 bit Not Supported RRDI only supports VMWare VSphere & ESX, ESXi 4.0 and 4.1

VMware VSphere, ESX and ESXi 4.1 and future fix packs RHEL, SUSE & Windows Server 64 bit 32 and 64 bit

Additionally, IBM supports CLM applications hosted on other virtualization technologies on the following basis:

New for CLM 2012

  1. The operating system being hosted in the virtualized environment must be supported in a non-virtualized environment.
  2. Any defects reported are reproducible outside the virtualization environment.
  3. Rational Support may not have access to the virtualization environment, and will attempt to reproduce the issues reported on a non-virtualized environment or one of the specific virtualization technologies listed above.
  4. No clustering support is available for these VMs.
Server Virtualization - Conditional support Operating Systems CLM Server RRDI Notes
VMware VSphere and ESXi 5.0 and future fix packs RHEL, SUSE & Windows Server 64 bit Not Supported Note conditional support terms
KVM in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 and future fix packs SUSE 11 64 bit Not Supported Note conditional support terms
Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 and future fix packs Win Server 2008 R2 64 bit Not Supported Note conditional support terms
Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 and future fix packs Win Server 2008 R2 64 bit Not Supported Note conditional support terms

A3. Memory Requirements

CLM Memory Requirements

  • CLM 2012 requires a 64-bit operating system and a minimum of 4 GB of server memory allocated to the Java virtual machine running the Jazz Team Server and all three applications (Change and Configuration Management, Quality Management, Requirements Management) on one server for small deployments. Larger deployments or loads may require significantly more memory.
  • The Java virtual machine max heap memory setting is configured to -Xmx4000M for 64-bit platforms and -Xmx1200M for 32-bit platforms (for small-scale evaluation or demonstration purposes only). Note that the Java virtual machine heap size should only represent a fraction of the physical memory (RAM) of the server.
  • For 64-bit deployments where less memory is available, it is possible - although strongly discouraged - to configure the Java virtual machine memory size to a lower setting (e.g. -Xmx1200M to match the 32-bit setup). Be aware that this configuration may result in memory outages and/or performance degradation. For the Tomcat installation, the server.startup script file to edit is located under JazzInstallDir/server/, and controlled by the line: set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Xmx4000M. For a WebSphere Application Server installation, please consult the WebSphere Administrative Console, and modify Servers>Application Servers>server1>Java and Process Management>Process Definition>Java Virtual Machine>Maximum Heap Size.
  • Memory requirements can be reduced by running a subset of applications, such as CCM only, to support RTC-only functionality. Additionally if applications and/or the Jazz Team Server are running on different machines, memory requirements for specific machines may be reduced.

RRDI Memory Requirements

  • 8 GB RAM. More memory generally improves performance; required memory depends on the number of concurrent users, amount of data being requested, and the size of the database. Optimum swap space is double the physical memory.

A4. Network Infrastructure

  • IPv6
  • IPv4

A5. Application Servers (Non-Clustered)

D. Optional Tools

D1. RTC Build System Toolkit

  • The Build System Toolkit is a client that can also be run on Server Operating Systems. It is supported on all CLM Server (Host Operating Systems) and all the RTC Eclipse Client platforms. For the RTC Eclipse client platforms there is an Installation Manager install. For all other platforms there are plain zip files.

D2. RTC SCM Command-Line Tool

  • The SCM Command-Line Tool is supported on all Server Platforms except for IBM i.

D3. RTC ISPF Client and ISPF Gateway

  • The Rational Team Concert ISPF Client is supported on all zOS platforms as specified under Server Operating Systems.
  • The Rational Team Concert ISPF client requires cURL, an open source tool supplied through IBM Ported Tools Supplementary Toolkit for z/OS. Information on IBM Ported Tools can be found at: IBM Ported Tools for z/OS Product and Feature Information. If you already have IBM Ported Tools installed, cURL for z/OS is available by ordering the PTF for APAR OA22944. Information on the Supplementary Toolkit for z/OS can be found at Supplement Toolkit for z/OS.
  • Rational Team Concert uses the ISPF Gateway component of ISPF for access to z/OS files. For the ISPF Gateway component to function correctly, you must install a number of PTFs for the listed APARs. If you do not install the appropriate PTF, you might encounter problems with ISPF Gateway usage. For the supported ISPF releases, the PTFs are as follows:
  • for APAR OA35689:
    • z/OS 1.9: UA63763
    • z/OS 1.10: UA59950
    • z/OS 1.11: UA59951
    • z/OS 1.12: UA59951
    • z/OS 1.13: - code is at appropriate level
  • for APAR OA38740:
    • z/OS 1.10: UA65381
    • z/OS 1.11: UA65382
    • z/OS 1.12: UA65382
    • z/OS 1.13: UA65383

  • for APAR OA39666:
    • z/OS 1.11: UA65909
    • z/OS 1.12: UA65909
    • z/OS 1.13: UA65910
