Pinned topic Is ClearDDTs still alive?

‏2007-05-02T03:46:39Z |
Don't see a whole lot of action here... but the beast we know and love as ClearDDTs must be alive and kicking in a few places.. Shout out if your site is still kicking. Or wheezing and dying slowly. :)

    And by the way, what is the latest version of Solaris that anyone has gotten ClearDDTs (4.7) to run on. From what I grok Solaris 8/9 is the last "officially" supported, but if I get a new box do I have to stay at Solaris 8/9?
    (has anyone managed to hook it up on Solaris 10?)

    Hello,

    yes it is. We use it still in our project environment.
    The last Release of ClearDDTS to my knowledge is V4.7

    At the moment we have running ClearDDTS at an old HP-UX Server with the OS Release HPUX 10.20. But the server is getting slower and slower, older and older.
    Therefore we need to migrate to an actual OS Release, minimum HPUX 11.11.

    ClearDDTS is supported only until HPUX 11.00, no later Releases.

    Does anybody know if ClearDDTS V4.7 is running on HPUX 11.11 or higher?

    DDTS is being used on the project I am on. We have had it installed since 1997 and, because of budgetary restraints, we have no immediate plans to migrate to another app.

    It is run on 4 different machines, all Solaris 8.

    Has anyone gotten it to run on boxes with Solaris 10?

    We are running DDTS Version 4.8.

    PS I rarely get the chance to get to the forums. Sorry if there is a big delay in any responses. :(

    Hello,
    I wanted to confirm what mx90 wrote regarding Solaris 10.

    Solaris 10 isn't supported for any of the ClearDDTS versions. Of course that may be different than what people may be able to get to work in certain cases. But after checking with Tech Support, I'm confident in the lack of Solaris 10 blessing.
    Yours, Marc

    Oh for sure, I knew that S10 has no official IBM/Rational endorsement. That, and our version, 4.7 has been EOL since last April.
    But we just received a shiny new SunFire which will have 10 installed, and I was looking to see if I would have to go through the drudgery of blasting it away with x9 first... :?
    Looks like (since I don't really have time to test it on x10 first) Ill have to.

    BTW, for anyone who asks, DDTs 4.7 + Oracle 9i works just great.

    We are still using DDTS (V4.7), and are planning a migration to ClearQuest later this year and into next year.

    I met another DDTS Admin at the RSDC 2009, and IBM confirmed that there are still several large companies out there who are using ClearDDTS.
