This could probably go under the RFT section of the developerworks forums, but since it is related to RQM, I am posting it here.
I am running into a new problem using the RFT adapter provided in RFT 8.0, where I try to connect to my RQM jazz server. After I click "Start Adapter", the message in the bottom-left corner of the screen will say "Connected", although my console continuously outputs "reconnecting to <server path...>". The user credentials that I am supplying this adapter with are my own, and I have already granted myself the four kinds of access licenses, as well as made myself Administrator and member of the default project area and project area team, respectively.
I have run into this problem before, but I believe it was a direct result of a database corruption; I was able to resolve it by running "repotools -createTables" again to re-create the database and indices. But now, running this tool again does nothing for me. I have even gone as far as performing a fresh re-installation of RQM from scratch, but still this does not work.
Has anybody else had problems using the RFT adapter?

Re: RFT Adapter Reconnecting Issue?2009-04-06T20:57:07ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Found out today that this is not related to RQM or RFT ... I am certain that the root of the issue lies with WAS.
After looking at the server logs to see what might be going on, I came across this:
4/6/09 13:50:48:998 PDT00000022 FormLoginExte E SECJ0118E: Authentication error during authentication for user email@example.com
4/6/09 13:50:49:014 PDT00000022 LTPAServerObj W SECJ0371W: Validation of the LTPA token failed because the token expired with the following info: Token expiration Date: Tue Mar 31 11:37:02 PDT 2009, current Date: Mon Apr 06 13:50:49 PDT 2009.
This thread can be closed, as the issue is more with an expired LTPA token in Websphere (or my test machines, perhaps) than with RQM or the adapter.

Re: RFT Adapter Reconnecting Issue?2009-04-08T23:45:34ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I am certain that the problem I was experiencing was the result of an expired LTPA token in WAS, and not RQM specifically. Most likely, this was the result of my test machines being snapshot-ed virtual machines ... they were snapshot-ed while running an instance of the RQM adapter, so they would permanently have an older version of an authorized token. This is a common side-effect using virtual machines and snapshots.
On the plus side, I was able to find a workaround for my problem ... I reverted my machines back to an earlier saved snapshot and rebuilt the test environment that I wanted to use, which meant that I reinstalled RFT 8.0. After I did this, I was able to connect to my Jazz server just fine.
I suspect that there might have been easier ways to solve the problem with the expired LTPA WAS token. I imagine there must be some sort of file saved on the test machines that is referencing the expired token, and if I found that file, I could simply delete it to force-generate a new token, and then I shouldn't be experiencing this problem anymore (I could also look for a way to force-generate a new WAS LTPA token for that machine, but I was unable to find any methods for doing so).
