It's an RTC love-fest today! Hot off the reporting presses here in Rational Support, here are the top fifteen technotes used in March to help solve the Rational Team Concert PMRs you reported. As always, these are taken directly from our PMR reports and tabulated to help you solve the same issues which you may be encountering:
Jazz LICENSING : Exploring Rational Team Concert
Rational Team Concert has a simple set of defined roles to enable key solutions for your organization. With Rational Team Concert you simply acquire licenses to support the roles and solutions that you are interested in. This provides you with an unprecedented level of flexibility and cost efficiency to choose and use only what you are interested in to support your needs. Rational Team Concert allows you to implement individual components of RTC now and others later simply through licensing - and without your typical deployment and integration headaches and risks.
When you purchase a role-based license for IBM Rational Team Concert you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application. In addition, there are three types of Developer client access licenses.
Client access licenses:
With a role-based licensing scheme, when you purchase a client access license for a particular role you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application.
You install the client access license activation kits in the License Key Management section in the Administration page of the Jazz Team Server. You assign the licenses to users in the Client Access License Management section of Jazz User Administration. See Installing and managing license keys for instructions.

The idle standby configuration enables recovery from failover to help ensure minimal impact on business operations during planned or unplanned server outages and Idle standby deployment for crash recovery.
Refer to Impl
Important: Jazz Team Server applications allow only a single server to be active at any one time to a repository; therefore the backup (or Idle) server is configured to never run asynchronous (or background) tasks. If a switch is made to the backup server, you must plan to bring the primary server back up as quickly as possible.
Index corruption can be caused by Network, database or application server issues, to name a few. Below are the steps to fix the index corruption issue on active server, using the idle standby server.
Index corrupted occurred on the Active server and you were unable to fix it by running the repotool command on it. So we can still fix the index issue by running a repotool command on the idle standby server.
Fixing the index issue on active RTC server using the Idle standby server.
Below are steps to fix the index problem, using the IDLE standby server. The standby server is on a different machine (and pointing to a different jazz_home than the active one).
