Error description

  • multiple doc issues related to the QCI 3.5.1 install procedure
    
    - The updated QCI installation document is not yet in the Info
    Center for customers to access.
    The updated install document is currently a PDF file located in
    this technote:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21646019
    
    - Step 13 on page 4 of the above mentioned PDF file should
    explicitly state whether the groups required here can be domain
    groups or if they have to be groups local to the QCI server. We
    have a customer who was having issues with this but they say
    they were able to fill in the 'Group Name' option during the
    install with a domain group but had to use a local group for the
    'Admin Group Name'. So please can we get some clarity in the
    documentation on whether each of these groups need to be
    local/domain or can be either?
    
    - The same step 13 on page 4 of the above mentioned doc says
    'enter the name of a QCI Administrator group with the necessary
    privileges to perform administrative operations in the
    administration console'
    The documentation at some point should explain what these
    'administrative operations in the administration console' are.
    
    - Perhaps there should be a brief line about why we now require
    these two groups? Existing QCI users who are upgrading can
    easily be confused about why there is a sudden need for two
    groups when you always just needed one group.
