Have you run into issues where you need to resolve common file conflicts between two different IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) Streams?
Below is a scenario that explains a use case where this can occur:
Save the changes. It will create a new Changeset and it can be Delivered.

Often times when you perform user load executions in IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT), you come across various connection errors depending on the schedule design, network issues and so on. Its also interesting to see that sometimes the connection time-out error takes place only for a few of the virtual users as compared to the rest where the execution succeeds without any failure notice.
RPT is a load generation performance testing tool and mimics most of the recorded behavior during playback of the scripts. So overall whatever the connection times, response times, think times and so on are captured during recording is being utilized during playback action.
Considering this fact, the reason for time out behaviors could be many, but mostly related to how the application is responding to the requests during playback as compared to recorded mode. On the other hand RPT does allow you to modify Time-Out behavior of a recorded test. To access this setting:
Timeout: Specifies the time threshold for initiating the action that is selected for Timeout action. The test will wait up to this amount of time for a response. If the response comes back before the timeout limit, the test will proceed to the next action immediately when the response is received. The Timeout action and Timeout value settings apply to every page in the test.
That being said, there could be several application behaviors which can also impact the time-out properties of requests/response data. Sometimes, the host application server locks out your IP address, because the server notes that your IP address sends several virtual users.
Let's take another such frequently occurring error. For example:
Error occurred during connection to server 'ser
So what does this indicate? In its literal sense RPT tried to open a connection while trying to execute a request to the server for a secondary request (i.e. not the primary but something like a gif) and RPT was unable to open the connection to the server.
It's probably worth looking at all the previous requests and responses. Use the Protocol viewer where you can see the browser view or the actual response from the server. If there are no errors then the symptoms indicate a problem with the application or server under test.
In addition to this, if the network connectivity and bandwidth between the host controller and its agents are not uniform, then this might cause communication errors.

Imagine a scenario where the Loadrunner (LR) scripts are imported successfully into IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM) and you want to execute these imported scripts.
Unfortunately, when you attempt to execute these LR scripts from within RQM section, you encounter the following error:
The adapter log present in location <Loadrunner Adapter installation path
22 Sep 2015 02:30:45,366 [AWT-EventQueue-0] INFO com.
Proposed suggestions to Debug this scenario:
Modify the log4j.xml file located at “<HP LR Adapter installation dir>
<priority value =" debug " />
<appender-ref ref="stdout" />
<appender-ref ref="FA" />
Log level should be changed to “debug”.
After changing the log4j.xml file, re run the LR scenario ,stop the adapter and share the log files located at “<HP LR Adapter installation dir>
If LR Scenario has custom result settings as mentioned in below steps then Adapter may not be unable to find the Result Folder to upload it to RQM test case result area.
Follow below steps:
1. Open the LR Scenario in the LR Controller.
2. Go to Menu option Results -> Result Settings
3. A dialog to set the result directory will be opened.
4. Check the option : “Automatically create a result directory for each scenario execution “.
5. Execute the LR Scenario via RQM Test Case.
You may now run scenario after unchecking the “Automatically create a result directory for each scenario execution” option in Result Setting dialog and observe the result.zip in RQM Result section.

Have you seen the latest IBM Rational License Key Server White Paper? This detailed white paper is meant to provide IBM Rational License Key Administrators with information about best practices for the IBM Rational License Key Server (RLKS) 8.1.4. If you're running a lower version of the RLKS, this paper includes tips for those versions as well. All IBM Rational products require a license of some type, so I would assume this paper will be useful to many.

IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) supports various error handling conditions which can help you narrow down the identification of performance bottlenecks of the given applications. You can specify how error conditions are handled when running a test or schedule. Error conditions include verification point failures, connection failures, server timeouts, custom code alerts, and problems with data correlation.
Say, for example, if you encounter an issue in the first transaction and based on this you want to exit from all the transactions and start from the first transaction all over again. It could also be a case where you cannot continue to next iteration as the loop is provided in the schedule. Let's discuss one simple scenario on similar lines.
Below are the Transactions available in the script:
Below are the HTTP pages available in the Transaction’s:
What happens if you select Exit Transaction and outermost in a request available in ‘Log
So, if you select Exit Transaction and outermost in a request available in ‘Log
