CLM 4.0 Enterprise Deployment tasks: Oracle DB, proxy, IHS, SSO setup and RRDI configuration

Sometimes it can get difficult to narrow down all pieces of information you need to perform some specific administrative task on your CLM/RTC/RQM/RQM/DM environment.

As part of the Jumpstart team, I regularly provide guidance to customers in the CLM area covering RTC, RQM, Enterprise deployments, upgrades, customizations, OSLC and Reporting. As questions about CLM Administration and Reporting show up frequently, I use to collect and keep preciously links I can refer to later with customers. Until very recently, my personal “Top 3” included the following resources:

Until… I found out that Rational Support had provided very useful videos in the CLM 4.0.1 Education Assistant

This is my new “Top 4” I wish I had complete a little earlier.

Thanks to Rational support  for providing these videos. Hope this blog will (modestly) provide the additional visibility this useful material deserves.

Note 1: while the title page of the Education assistant states it’s for “IBM Rational Quality Manager“, this content is more largely applicable (to RTC, RRC, etc.)

Note 2: updates for 4.0.1+ versions are not available at this time AFAIK.
