This page is the starting point for information and techniques to help diagnose and troubleshoot upgrade issues when upgrading the Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) family of products (Rational Team Concert, Rational Requirements Composer, and Rational Quality Manager).

Before upgrading

  • Before running the upgrade - Check the Known issues to ensure that you have all the required hotfixes applied to your current version as a prerequisite for the upgrade
  • Before running the upgrade - Ensure that your current environment meets all the requirements by checking the Environment checklist

Performing the upgrade

Below are the steps necessary to complete a successful upgrade. Each item below discusses common issues seen at that particular step within the upgrade process.

Upgrade Verification

Proceed with completing an Upgrade Verification to ensure the upgrade was successful.

On the Information Center, the following also exists to help you verify the upgrade was successful:

User verification testing errors after upgrade

If your upgrade was successful, but your users report the following:

  • Various functions are not working as expected, or not working the same as the pre-upgrade version
  • Some data, such as item statuses, are corrupted after the upgrade
  • Full text queries fail
  • Dashboard issues

Navigate to Common issues that occur after the upgrade for information on troubleshooting and debugging.

Where do I go from here?
