Avoid using RTC CLI (SCM and LSCM ) accessing the NFS shares.
There have been issues where using scm and lscm from the command line with NFS shares is not working correctly. The details provided here will help you work around the issue.
* In case if the home directories of all users are mounted on NFS.
*If you see .nfsXXX file jazz-scm folder's daemon directory, it seems the lscm process is accessing the NFS share.
NFS file systems could prevent the CLI (scm and lscm) from working. Refer to article Tip: Using the SCM Command Line with NFS
Try the lscm commands with --config directory path is a non NFS file system option.
How to avoid --config option on every command run?
The alternative to providing --config option on the command line is to set the environment variable SCM_
This way the user does not have to specify the --config option on every command.

Program Board - Rational Team Concert 188.8.131.52
Program Board - Rational Team Concert 184.108.40.206 - This video demonstrates the new Program Board feature available in Rational Team Concert 220.127.116.11.
A new Program Board application is available from the plans menu. The Program Board shows the relationship between blocked by and depends on relationships for a set of work items scoped to a given timeline and project. It is useful for quickly identifying if there is a work item in your project that has a dependency on another work item but is attempting to be delivered or planned for a later sprint. In SAFe methodology, the Program Board provides transparency and visibility of the dependencies and enables the organization to address these by ensuring that features are delivered early enough in various sprints to avoid delays in delivery. The Program Board graphical visualization of dependencies can be used with any methodology (not just SAFe) that has parent child relationships and uses the blocked by and depends-on feature of work items to denote dependencies.
Note: If you have seen the RTC 6.0.6 technical preview of this feature, you will notice a considerable amount of changes in this release.

Query Organization Using Tags - Rational Team Concert 6 0 6 1 - This video demonstrates the new web-based tagged queries feature in Rational Team Concert 18.104.22.168
This release adds the ability to organize work item queries by using tags. This feature is available as a technical preview. This feature supports grouping queries by tags on the My Queries and Shared Queries tabs. The tags can represent a hierarchy of folders. For example, the tag 22.214.171.124 / iFix003 / verification (release / iFix / type) displays with a root of 126.96.36.199, a child iFix003, and a nested child verification. You can organize your queries with new tags or existing tags.

Migrate CCM application from one server machine to another with the same database server in Enterprise deployment topology using WAS
Arun K Sriramaiah 2700076GE8 Visits (1581)
How to migrate a CCM application from one server machine to another with the same database server in Enterprise deployment topology using WebSphere Application Server (WAS).
Example: A distributed environment where we have 5 server machines.
1st server machine for IHS,
2nd server machine for the database,
3rd server machine for DCC + RS,
4th server machine for JTS+RM+CCM and
5th server machine for LQE.
Expectation: CCM and RM are in the same server machine. How to move the CCM application to a new server machine?
Please find the procedure below referencing with the above scope of the requirement as an example.
1) Backup Conf
2) Install RTC in New Server
4) Restore the conf
5) Re-configure IHS for new RTC server.
6) Make sure you have the right JVM configured for the RTC applications.
Note: Two applications sharing the same JVM, needs more JVM to be set.
7) Set the new path to the indices folder in the team
Any feedback or suggestion based on specific scenario and your experience is appreciated.

Is there an impact from Enabling automatic archiving of auditable links for RTC?
Before enabling automatic archiving of auditable links for RTC, you may want to know if it has the potential to cause any problems (such as performance issues)?
No known issues have been reported, so there is minimal impact.
But of course it all depends on how many links you have. If you would have millions of links, you could notice some impact but otherwise no.
The most effect seen is in history. If one item has many links, it might take some seconds to resolve all links. For one item, you should see no performance impact in general.
If you encounter any issues, please add a comment to this thread.
Good practice to verify the dependencies of the custom attribute with scripts/API's/Plugins and Operational Behavior before removing from the RTC editor presentations
Arun K Sriramaiah 2700076GE8 Visits (1209)
Have you run into issues saving a workitem after removing custom mandatory attributes from an RTC editor presentation?
Note: A good practice is to verify the dependencies of the custom attribute with scri
Scenario: Below is one scenario that explains why even after removing the mandatory attribute the workitem save operation was still not successful.
The case below talks about Operational Behavior causing the issue while saving the workitem.
When you have a workitem mandatory attribute you want to remove from the editor presentation but still want it in another workitem type, check the attribute dependency with the Preconditions for a workitem before removing from the editor presentation.
In the case below, the customer is not able to save the workitem even after the attribute is removed from the editor presentation.
Check the below details:
Open RTC project Area>> Click on the >> process configuration tab >>navigate to Operation Behavior under Team Configuration >> Operations Window.
Navigate to Work Items>> Save Work Items (Server) >> Click on the role which should be affected by this configuration >>
The Preconditions for a work item will be displayed.
Click on "Required Attributes For Type and State"
In this use case that the 'Custom attribute ' still set mandatory in preconditions.
Note: Uncheck the 'Custom attribute' and save the project configuration.
*Required Attributes For Condition
Whichever custom attribute removed from the editor presentation should be unselected. Once finished, click OK and save the project area.
