There was a time stopping DWA (DOORS Web Access) was necessary. Stopping DWA could be painful if it did not run as a service or that service was on another machine.
But that time has passed. Since 126.96.36.199 of DWA it will recover if it loses connectivity to the DOORS database. Ref
Rejoice. Then go simplify your backup scripts.

How to create a full link after checking 'Save partial changes' in Rational Quality Manager linked to DOORS

The missing links are identified and can be fixed by the broken link icon.
This has been implemented as a user setting. A customer recently asked why is this not the default? Well, consider the actual impact of this if you have thousands of test cases linked to requirements. It will send thousands of requests to DWA. With hundreds of users, DWA would need to be scaled to manage that increase in load. I would leave this feature for the users who need it. I would not activate it for every user as every user is not interested in the link status.

A splash screen is a graphical control element consisting of window containing an image, a logo and the current version of the software. A splash screen usually appears while a game or program is launching.
Most customers would like to modify the splash screen on the applications and replace the default IBM Logo with their company logo.
1. Stop the UrbanCode Deploy Server/Release Server
CD to $UCD
2. Rename the existing ibmLogoDark.png to a different name
Copy the required logo to the same location in .png format (50PX preferred)
3. Rename the logo to ibmLogoDark.png
CD to $UCD
4. Edit the login.css file modify the padding-top to 150 or a appropriate value to place the image in the Logic Frame
5. Start the UCD Server and enjoy your new splash screen!
Customize RTC attributes for adding the attribute values stored in two Integer attributes in RTC & getting the resultant SUM on the third attribute
Anish_A 2700024E8C Visits (873)
Customizing IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) attributes for adding the attribute values stored in two Integer attributes in RTC & getting the resultant SUM on the third attribute can be accomplished by following the steps outlined below:
This blog post gives you some basic ideas on customizing WorkItem Attributes and using the DOJO Scripts.
You can achieve more functionality by customizing the scripts to suit your own requirements.

I most commonly see DOORS Web Access (DWA) installed on its own server and I prefer this for two reasons:
An important related note is that DWA should be close to the DOORS database server. A ping should be less than 50ms between where the database server is running and where DWA is running. I have twice seen DWA put in a remote location (a different city), with ping times significantly in excess of 50ms. The performance was unacceptable with operations such as login and opening modules timing out.
Configure Mutual Authentication between IBM UrbanCode Deploy Server- UrbanCode Relay Server- UrbanCode Agents
Anish_A 2700024E8C Visits (1066)
Mutual authentication or two-way authentication (sometimes written as 2WAY authentication) refers to two parties authenticating each other at the same time.
Mutual authentication is typically used only when extra level of security is needed,In technology terms, it refers to a client or user authenticating themselves to a server and that server authenticating itself to the user in such a way that both parties are assured of the others' identity.
Mutual Authentication In UrbanCode Deploy can be between the Server and the Agent or between the Server-Relay Server /Relay Server-Agent.
Mutual Authentication can be configured in either one of the following method:
I> During the Server-Relay Server-Agent installation by choosing “Yes/Y” at the step “Do you want the Server and Agent communication to require mutual authentication?”
II> Ensure that the following properties are set in the Serv
Example: keytool -import -keystore server.keystore -storepass changeit -alias agentrelay -file agentrelay.crt -keypass changeit -noprompt
