A 4 step install guide for RPE 2.0.1


This post is a TL;DR version of it for Liberty and Tomcat. The installation procedure for the RPE WebServices 2.0 is described in detail in http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS6RHZ_2.0.1/com.ibm.rational.pe.install.doc/topics/c_web_rpeng.html

RPE 2.0.1 Login Screen
RPE 2.0.1 Login Screen

 

WAS  Liberty Profile

Apache Tomcat

Ensure the TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE environment variable is set and points to a RPE license server.
Copy com.ibm.rpe.web.app.ear from %RPE_HOME%\remote-services into the apps folder of your Liberty server Copy rpeng.war and dgass.war from %RPE_HOME%\remote-services into the webapps folder of the Tomcat server
Ensure the JSP and Auth features are enabled for the Liberty server. Add the required users and roles for RPENG. See the example server.xml.  Add users and roles for RPENG. See the example tomcat-users.xml.
Start Liberty and navigate to  http://<server&gt;:9080/rpeng/home Start Tomcat and navigate to http://<server&gt;:8080/rpeng/home

Trouble shooting

  1. Examine rpeng.log and rpedgaas.log in %TEMP% folder
  2. Clear browser cache. This is mandatory when upgrading from 2.0 to 2.0.1
  3. Admin page – list of failed jobs
  4. View page – job details

  1. Hello together,

    Today i had an issue when i tried to generate the report on the RPE web. I installed RPE version 2.1 and deployed it on tomcat 8.5.5 i also tried to configure as this link mention

    https://rpeactual.com/2015/07/22/setting-up-the-the-licensing-for-rpe-web-services-2/

    and i added some flag on java sheet of Tomcat8w.exe file as bellow:

    -Dcom.ibm.rational.rpe.license.attempts.count=10

    -Dcom.ibm.rational.rpe.license.retry.timeout=10

    and after running it on the web and try to generate a sample on this web page it display error

    “Licensed number of users already reached. Feature: RPE_PUBLISH License path: 27000@localhost; FLEXnet Licensing error:-4,132 For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation, available at “www.flexerasoftware.com”.”
