I started working as a Technical Support Engineer, initially on Telelogic Synergy/Change products, later on IBM Rational ClearCase for the past couple of years, and lately with IBM Rational CLM (Collaborative Lifecycle Management) solutions.
Unlike with Telelogic Synergy or IBM Rational ClearCase, issues with CLM are so diverse, with less repetition of similar questions or difficulties. Here is one of the many interesting issues with CLM that I happened to work on.
Rational Team Concert (RTC) 220.127.116.11 server running on JFS 18.104.22.168 on server machine 'A'.
Rational Quality Manager (RQM) / Rational Requirements Composer (RRC) 22.214.171.124 running on JTS 126.96.36.199 on server machine 'B'.
Each having their own database servers, running on their respective server machines.
The client was looking to integrate RTC 188.8.131.52 with RQM 184.108.40.206 so that users can raise defects from RQM 220.127.116.11, which in turn is a Work Item in RTC 18.104.22.168. So they tried to establish friend relationship at RQM 22.214.171.124 server but were unable to establish communication as outlined in this help topic:
They were able to successfully register RQM 126.96.36.199 application on the RTC 188.8.131.52 server, however, trying to register RTC 184.108.40.206 on RQM 220.127.116.11 server failed with the following error:
CRJAZ2082E : An error occurred while attempting to access the Application
