  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If Rational Integration Tester Agent (RIT-Agent) is terminated
    while it has HTTP/HTTPS/TCP stubs running, the routing rules
    remain active in Rational Test Control Panel (RTCP).
    RunTests processes exit shortly after RIT-Agent.
    The stubs disappear from the Environment view.
    
    The rules can prevent new instances of the stubs from working as
    they divert traffic away from them.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Manually delete the rules in the RTCP agents page.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If you kill the Agent process the RunTests processes appear  *
    * to exit fairly quickly once they realise their Agent has     *
    * gone but still the stub appears to be running.               *
    *                                                              *
    * The stub status in RTCP takes a while to change from "Ready" *
    * - it then disappears.                                        *
    *                                                              *
    * The routing rules remain though so when you re-start the     *
    * stubs they might not work.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
