Error description

  • Steps to Reproduce
    ==================
    1. Configure RQMi to work with RQM instance A
    2. Export a view - View A.
    3. Now, re-configure RQMi to work with RQM B
    4. Try exporting View A - FAILS
    5. Try clearing Test Plan association for View A - FAILS
    
    Note - Any new view which was not exported before re-configuring
    RQMi, will work fine.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    On the DOORS Server machine, navigate to the ?DOORS
    Datafolder?\conf\u1000001.dir\RQM folder which holds the
    information of the views which were already exported to RQM-A.
    Look for the file having the uniqueID of the module (Module1)
    with the view (Veiw-A) in question.
    
    For example if the uniqueID of the module is 00000021, then the
    file name should look like 'Module00000021-View00000001.txt'.
    
    Rename this file and restart the DOORS client and now it should
    let us export the view (View-A) to the new RQM (RQM-B) instance.

Problem conclusion

  • This will be addressed in the 2012 release of RQMI that
    corresponds to DOORS 9.4
    
    The RQMI Server will no longer be a required component. RM
    data in DOORS will be linked via OSLC data to QM data in
    RQM, and will be product to product with no intermediate
    components.
