Error description

  • TLOG#52046
    Before you can enable Discussions in DOORS 9.2, you need to set
    the minimum version in the DOORS database's Login Policy to
    9.1.0.0 or 9.2.0.0 (setting requires client restart to take
    effect). Before you do that, The options in the Discussions
    Access tab (in the Database Properties) are grayed out, even if
    you are logged in as a database administrator. This step is not
    mentioned in the instructions for setting up Discussions (Using
    DOORS, chapter 16). The instructions should mention this
    prerequisite.
    

Local fix

  • A tech note that documents the missing steps is in progress.
    

Problem summary

  • Before you can enable Discussions in DOORS 9.2, you need to set
    the minimum version in the DOORS database's Login Policy to
    9.1.0.0 or 9.2.0.0 (setting requires client restart to take
    effect). Before you do that, The options in the Discussions
    Access tab (in the Database Properties) are grayed out, even if

Problem conclusion

  • This defect was fixed in the DOORS 9.2.0.1 online help, which
    now includes this statement in the 'About Discussions' and
    'Controlling access for discussions in a module' topics:
    You need to be using a Rational DOORS 9.2 or later Database
    Server, and the server must be configured to exclude Rational
    DOORS 9.0 and 9.1 clients to make the discussions functionality
    fully available.
