The Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) upgrade scripts - Jazz Team Server (JTS), Change and Configuration Management (CCM), Quality Management (QM), Requirements Management (RM) provides an additional command line para
This new command line para
The upgrade scripts also provides other parameters(such as -noPrompt -noStepPrompt –overwrite -noVerify)
As a result, the automation of the upgrade scripts can be achieved by prevent all the user interactions.
An example command to perform JTS upgrade by suppressing all the user interactions:
However, vvc_upgrade.bat, dm_upgrade.bat, and relm_upgrade.bat don't support the noEditor option.Therefore, running these three upgrade batch files still require manual user interaction.

Why do I blog about Rational License server, RPT, RFT, CLM, anyway? Why do I even recommend it? Who will gain anything out of it?
If you ask me I will have loads to say as I love blog posts, especially those that can take you through the entire process of troubleshooting, installing a software, or building an application from A to Z. After reading many technical blog posts from different authors and writing many myself, I’ve decided that it’s time to share a workflow that I hope will help those who are creating amazing things to blog more easily and often.
Writing blog posts isn’t easy. Most technical posts require lots of thinking, putting together reporting, scripts, testing, scratching your head when they don’t work right, trying again and again till you succeed. There’s the time it takes to upload images, to get them aligned properly into posts, to get everything just right.
But writing regularly about Rational Licensing concepts has become a very valuable part of my learning process, which helps me connect to my clients and help them grow without any technical hiccups..
Lets understand what one can do to enhance technical blogging: How to write a technical blog
Upon reading couple of books/articles on blogs, this is what I think will best fits in:
Research Deeper into the Topic, I like to include this step after the brainstorm, so I don’t pollute the creative process with external ideas.
Now that you have some of your own original ideas out on paper, it’s time to find out what knowledge has been already uncovered. I suggest that you
a) timebox this step and
b) use resources beyond simple Google searches.
Think before you act : Understand that what kind of blog are you going to write [ A Plan for Your Blog ]
Let Your Personality Show
Blogs began as an intensely personal medium, often having a diary-like quality to them. While blogs have since evolved, many still convey plenty of personality. "Let your personality show," "Remember to be yourself."
Unless you feel strongly about your subject, you will have a tough time succeeding as a blogger. "You have to enjoy what you are blogging about -- it's as simple as that, "If you don't, it will feel forced and your readers will notice."
Explain Technical Matters
No matter what your profession, you likely have to explain complicated topics to people who don't understand. Maybe you're a scientist trying to explain DNA to your grandmother, a literature professor explaining metafiction to drinking buddy, or an IT professional explaining reporting tool to your significant other. Regardless of what you're explaining, you can make it easier on yourself (and the person trying to learn).
Blogging requires time -- lots of time. "The number one thing is to blog as often as possible and to make every post as interesting and useful as possible.
Reference Other Bloggers
Be sure to link to influential bloggers and their posts within your own blog; if you're lucky, they will link back. But don't focus solely on the top one or two bloggers, or else you will look like you just want attention (and links). Other bloggers with clout who aren't the stars of the scene may be more likely to link back to you.
Promoting Your Blog
Understanding Traffic Statistics and analysis
Building a Community Around Your Blog
Scaling Your Blogging Activities
Beyond Blogging: Your Strategy for Social Media
Determine your motivation for writing a technology blog. This will play an important role in determining which topics you write about and how much depth and background or supporting information you provide.
If you're blogging as a hobby and want to share information you know as well as technical information you're learning regularly yourself, you can choose diverse topics that interest you at a specific time.
Can you write about something if you’re not an expert on it? YES you can!!
Try to just write about your findings and research, document your work so far, link to your references, and write down your questions. People may help answer your questions, or you may answer them yourself in further posts. You’ll learn a lot just by writing a careful, thoughtful blog post about what you’re doing.
Write Smartly, but don’t try to sound smart!!
Writing a technical blog helps make you less isolated. It gives the community a chance to get to know you in ways they wouldn’t otherwise. Even if people don’t subscribe and read every post, if you blog regularly and tweet a bit about it, people will find you and get a sense of who you are.

A scenario where a web application was recorded using Rational Performance Tester (RPT).
After playback, data correlation errors were noticed in spite of manually creating the references. Upon analyzing the server responses, it was noted that some of the responses were sent in binary format.
Data correlation cannot be done on the response content if the data is in binary. The response should be in readable format to implement data correlation.
The below steps were followed and the script was re-recorded:
Open RPT Workbench -> Select 'Window' -> 'Preferences' -> Select 'Test' -> 'Test Generation' -> Select all the check boxes and record again.
The server responses after the above settings looked fine, however, the correlation errors still remained. Upon further investigation, it was noticed that the users ran into trouble at the "Home - Portal" page.
Instead of getting redirected to http
It was also noticed that the initial URL was rather odd, it had a jsessionid incorporated in it:
Usually the initial URL is rather generic, something like
The concern here is, Incorporating the jessesion (8AF54....) value in the URL for all the virtual users, the playback sessions for the multi-user playback are not fully differentiated by the server.
The issue was resolved by using a different URL without specific information like above.
