You might encounter some problems where the Lifecycle Project Administration (LPA) projects and templates are missing, or application dashboards are not loading post upgrade activities or any sudden database or application failure.
The direct solution is to run re-index for the application. This will regenerate the metadata (query triple store and Lucene text store indexes) required to load the page.
Error instantiating the template....
Error deploying predefined templates....
Example (click the images below for larger views):
In-case the indices are corrupt or missing, error seen on LPA admin page:
Post jts reindex done, the LPA templates and projects will be visible now.
For LPA templates, the metadata is in the jts application, so just reindex of jts will help.
Note: Collecting logs will not help you and either run the firebug to troubleshoot further.
For Dashboards, run it for JTS and the corresponding application.
Important: You must shut down the server before you run the command.

The Jazz architecture allows for multiple instances of specific application servers, such as the Change and Configuration Management (CCM) application (Rational Team Concert), Quality Management (QM) application (Rational Quality Manager) and Requirements Management (RM) application (DOORS Next Gen). These application servers are registered to a common Jazz Team Server (JTS) to form a CLM Instance. The architecture further allows multiple CLM Instances to be formed. You should be aware of the tradeoffs and architectural considerations when multiple instances are needed in order to scale to support your user population/load.
The following article on jazz.net provides details about application, server and architectural considerations in addition to functional differences that you should review while planning: Planning for multiple Jazz application server instances

With the new CLM 6.0.1 and upcoming IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) releases, IBM WAS Liberty has replaced the Apache Tomcat application server. The current documentation will not assist you to configure the WAS Liberty to run as a Windows service.
There is an existing Enhancement Request for the same:
As a workaround, you can use the Apache Commons Daemon as an option.
Steps to create the service using Apache Commons Daemon to run CLM 6.0.1 in IBM WAS Liberty:

As seen on the Jazz.net blog: A DevOps transformation
Mario Maldari and Albert Tabachnik take you through the journey of a system test organization in transforming itself into a continuous delivery, DevOps model. In a DevOps Continuous Engineering environment, with accelerated timescales, it is ever more important to focus testing efforts on those features and platforms that are most critical to your customers. The Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) system test organization challenged itself to transform to meet the demands of our business and our clients. We started off by analyzing our time investment, and shifting our focus to areas that needed greater investment. We optimized and standardized on a set of “Golden Topologies” that represent a core set of topologies used by our customers. We invested in our automated deployments, effectively streamlining our server setup and deploy process. We moved to a “solution test” model and streamlined our resources and test scenarios. Once the foundation of our transformation was laid down, we began automating our scenarios and running them daily in the pipeline, while allowing testers to focus on other areas. Overall, our transformation has allowed us to better react to how our development teams operate, as well as align our testing with how our customers deploy and use our solution...
