Installation roadmap for Rational DOORS

Before you install IBM® Rational® DOORS®, IBM Rational DOORS Web Access, or both, prepare by reading this topic and reviewing the installation roadmap.

All the information that you need about system requirements, access to product downloads, fixes in each release, and so on, is available in Release notes for Rational DOORS and Rational DOORS Web Access.

Typically, the administrator installs the Rational DOORS client on a central machine, and then installs a Rational DOORS database server. The administrator then uses the client to manage the Rational DOORS system. The administrator then distributes the Rational DOORS client installer to team members who install the Rational DOORS client on their own machines.

After the installation is complete, help content can be accessed in one of three ways: remote web-based help, local help, and intranet help. By default, the client accesses web-based help on an IBM server. Optionally, administrators can install the help content on a server in the company intranet. If the help is installed on an intranet server, team members must set the client help preferences to configure access to that server. Team members can also install the help locally on their client computers. For more information, see Configuring help content.

Optionally, administrators and users can install Rational DOORS interfaces, such as Rational DOORS for HP Quality Center Interface.

Finally, an administrator can plan the installation of Rational DOORS Web Access and install its components.
