  • The index locations specified in are inaccessible

Resolving the problem

Steps to resolve the problem:

  1. Navigate to <%JazzTeamServer%>/server/conf/jts/ directory

  2. In, search for the following parameters:

  3. Ensure that the directories specified for these index location parameters are correct. Backslashes must be used as an escape character when specifying the path.

    For example:\:\\jts\\server\\conf\\jts\\indices\\workitemIndex\:\\jts\\server\\conf\\jts\\indices

  4. Ensure that the directories exist and are accessible. The user must have both read and write permissions on these directories.

To avoid any other errors that may be caused by invalid or inaccessible index location, it is recommended that you review the values of the index location parameters in of all your applications (IBM Rational Change and Configuration Management (CCM), IBM Rational Quality Manager (QM), and IBM Rational Requirements Management (RM)), and ensure that they are valid and accessible.
