    4.8 Changing Item Access Process to GRANT

    Perform the following steps to change the item access process to use GRANT Access instead of DENY Access. These steps provide a database conversion that cannot be rolled back.

    WARNING! After you perform these steps, you will not be able to roll back to a prior release or patch of Harvest.

  • Make a backup of your current database before you start this process. (After you run the M1 or M2 script, you cannot recover your original database).

  • Read the PR2329-readme.txt file, Tech Doc TEC324271, Grant Item Access Data Conversion and Installation Instructions, and Tech Doc TEC324326, Repository, Item Path & Item Access Model Uses GRANT Methodology Overview. See one of the following directories for the PR2329-readme.txt file:

    4.9 Miscellaneous

    On Windows computers, the Harvest installation may display Internal Error 2343 and abort. The most likely cause of this error is that a release of Harvest earlier than 5.2.1 is already installed. Uninstall the earlier version using the Add/Remove Programs option from the Windows Control Panel. Then try installing Harvest 5.2.1 again.

    The custom installation for the Harvest client includes options to install WebSphere Studio Integration, TestDirector Integration, and WSAD Integration; however, the Harvest installation program enables only the option or options that apply to your site.

    The operating system requirements for the Harvest components on all platforms include the requirements for the applicable Computer Associates shared components such as PEC, Lic98, CACE, and CAI/PT ODBC.

    While installing Harvest on Linux systems, if you are using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9, you must set the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1. If you do not set this variable, the Harvest executable files will not start. For instructions, see the Harvest Install Guide.

    On UNIX and Linux, if you are re-installing Harvest 5.2.1, to keep the existing Harvest 5.2.1 database created by the first installation, you must use installation option [2] - Upgrade Harvest. If you select option 2, you are prompted to enter the Oracle user name that owns Harvest tables. If you enter the name of the existing database user at this prompt, the installation program proceeds successfully.

    On UNIX and Linux, log on as the harvest user (not the root user) to install CACE. For details, see the Installation section of the Known Issues in this readme.

    Harweb

    Harweb is a standard component of Harvest 5.2.1. Harweb is supplied on its own CD, separate from the Harvest installation CD. There is one Harvest CD for Windows and another for UNIX. For instructions to install Harweb, see the Harvest Web Interface Install Guide in the Doc directory on the Harweb product CD.

    Harweb uses the Harvest server's database and requires a remote Harvest agent machine.

    Harweb Windows and UNIX Agent-only installations will need to apply the Harvest patch to upgrade to the current patch level.

    WebSphere Application Server

    Use these procedures to configure and deploy Harweb under IBM WebSphere Application Server on the Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP platform. WebSphere must be properly installed and configured. See the respective product documentation for further information on installing and configuring WebSphere Application Server.

    Prerequisites

    You need to create the harweb.war file. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Install Harweb to your local disk (follow all the normal setup instructions).

  • Change directories to the Harweb root dir.

  • Verify that you can run the jar command from the command line (it is installed with java).

  • Run the following command:
     jar -cvf harweb.war * 

    Ensure that harweb.war is lowercase.

    Configuration Procedure

    Follow these configuration steps:

  • Ensure that the target WebSphere Application Server is running.

  • Start the WebSphere Application Server Administrative Console.

  • Expand the Applications entry in the Actions tree in the left frame.

  • Click Install New Application.

  • In the Preparing for the Application Installation dialog, under Path, select Local Path and enter the path name for the fully qualified path to the %temp%webapps folder on the machine where Harweb is installed and configured.

  • Under Context Root, enter /harweb. Note the presence of the prepended forward slash. Click Next.

  • Check the Generate Default Bindings check box. Click Next.

  • In the Application Security Warning dialog, click Continue.

  • In Step 1 in the Install New Application dialog, enter an appropriate name, for example, Harweb. Click Next.

  • Select appropriate site-specific options through Step 4: Summary. Click Finish when you are finished.

  • On the Enterprise Applications frame, select the check box for the name you previously gave this application.

  • Select and click Start.

    Harweb is now deployed into your application server and is addressable as /harweb appended to your web application server's URL.

    WSAD Integration

    WSAD Integration is an optional component of Harvest client installation. For instructions to install WebSphere Studio Integration, see the Harvest Install Guide in the Doc directory on the Harvest installation CD.

    For other important installation considerations, see WebSphere Studio Integration in System Requirements in this readme file.

    TestDirector Integration

    Mercury TestDirector Integration is an optional component on the Harvest 5.2.1 client custom installation. For instructions to install TestDirector Integration, see the Harvest Install Guide in the Doc directory on the Harvest installation CD.

    WARNING! If the Harvest client on the TestDirector server machine is uninstalled and reinstalled in another location after TestDirector data has been checked in to the Harvest repository, the TestDirector interface will be unable to check out the files, because the location of the htdvcElement.dtd file has changed. If the Harvest installation is moved, a copy of htdvcElement.dtd must remain in its original location.


    5.0 General Considerations

    For a list and brief description of new and changedfeatures supplied by Harvest 5.2.1, see the HarvestRelease Summary in the Doc directory on the Harvestinstallation CD.

    The Harvest Release 5.x HSDK replaces the Harvest SIKsupplied with Harvest 4.x and earlier versions. The HarvestSIK was a C language interface to a subset of the Harvestcapabilities. The HSDK is a C++ class set for the samefunctionality. SIK functionality can be reprogrammed usingthe HSDK but is not directly compatible with the HSDK.


    6.0 List of Fixes

    Harvest 5.2.1 Patch 4 includes all Release 5.2.1 Patch2, Patch 3, and 5.1.1 fixes. These fixes were originallycreated for Harvest 5.1.1 patches 16‑18, WSADIntegration 2.0 patches 5‑7, and Harweb 3.1 patches10‑12. A list of fixes is on our web site, http://ca.com/supportconnect.

    7.0 Known Issues

    This section lists the most prominent known issues forHarvest 5.2.1 at publication time. For other known issues,see Computer Associates Customer Support at http://ca.com/supportconnect.


    7.1 Access Control

    PR2910: A User Group that does not have View access toan item path can modify the item path through command lineutility check in process (hci).

    PR2329: Harvest Release 5.2.1 Patch 1 includes files andsteps for changing the item access process to use GRANTAccess instead of the DENY Access. If you perform thesesteps, you will not be able to roll back to a prior releaseor patch of Harvest, because these steps perform a databaseconversion that cannot be rolled back. For moreinformation, see Changing Item Access Process to GRANTunder Installation Considerations in this readme file.


    7.2 Agent Connection Problems

    PR3117: When you connect to a remote agent by using theConnect to New Agent option of the Remote AgentNeighborhood on the Files tab of the Harvest Administratoror Workbench GUI, the GUI caches the agent connectioninformation.

    If the remote agent is shut down and restarted, you mustdisconnect and reconnect the agent in the Remote AgentNeighborhood to reestablish the cached agent connectioninformation. If you do not do so, the GUI cannot performremote agent file handling, even though the remote agentappears valid on the Files tab.

    PR3118: When you attempt to connect to a remote agent byusing the Connect to New Agent option of the Remote AgentNeighborhood on the Files tab of the Harvest Workbench GUI,you receive a login timeout error if both of the followingconditions exist:

  • The machine name of your Harvest broker includes adash (-)

  • The remote agent is already connected to that broker

    As a workaround, try either renaming the current broker(if feasible) or using a different broker.

    PR 4030: A command line hco using a multi-user agent outputsan incorrect error message: "File Is Writeable".

  • If target file has any write permission bit on and the userattempting to checkout the file is not the owner and “Shared Working Directory” is not in effect, then the error message returned will state “Can’t replace readonly file” instead of “File is Writable”.


    7.3 Agent Modes

    PR2911: A user cannot start multiple single-user agentson the same machine connecting to different Harvest brokers(rtservers) on a z/OS machine with SuSE Linux 7.0installed.


    7.4 Agent Shutdown

    PR3109: On HP-UX, Solaris, and z/OS, when the RT serveror Harvest broker is shut down, the Harvest agent alsoshuts down. This problem may also affect other platforms.If you experience this problem, first restart the RT serverand the broker and then restart the agent.


    7.5 Check In and Check Out

    PR2912: Generally, two Harvest users can share the sameproject files; that is, the users can both have the samefiles checked out simultaneously, and their changes can bemerged when both files are checked in again. This abilityto share files does not apply to Sybase PowerBuilderproject files.

    PR2913: On Windows, if you check in or check out filesusing HarWind (the Harvest Windows Extension) after youinstall the Harvest client, you may receive error messagessimilar to the following, even if the files are actuallychecked in or checked out properly:
    E3080003: Requested Message Key Not Found: : HSRV_I_CHECKINE3080003: Requested Message Key Not Found: : HAPI_I_EXECUTE_SUCCESSE3080003: Requested Message Key Not Found: : HSRV_I_CHECKOUTE3080003: Requested Message Key Not Found: : HSRV_I_CHECKOUT

    To fix this problem on Windows 2000, restart thecomputer.

    To fix this problem on Windows XP, close and restart allWindows Explorer sessions.

    PR 4054: Low disk space errors when checking out to a floppy disk

    The following scenario has been corrected with 5.2.1 P4 PR2898:

  • Harvest checks out files even through there is not enough disk space. Some of the checked out files will be truncated in size (i.e. zero bytes). Although the checkout has been unsuccessful, it still shows as a completed check out. The items that were check out are also marked as reserved in Harvest.

    An outstanding fail scenario is still pending resolution. This behaviour will be address with PR 4054 in a future deliverable:

  • Attempting to check out 5000 3k size files to a sub folder of a floppy disk will result in some files being truncated in size. These files are also reserved if checked out for update.


    7.6 Command Line

    PR2914: The project restore command line utility namedhrt requires a remote file agent connection on the machinewhere the project was archived. For example, to restore aproject to Harvest from machine A, a remote file agent mustbe running on machine A. Use the following syntax for hrt:
    hrt -b <broker> -f <archive file> -m <machine> -musr <user> -mpw <password>    -user <harvest user> -pw <harvest pw>


    7.7 Graphical User Interface

    PR2916: The function for copying multiple Lifecycleprocesses in the Harvest Administrator from one state toanother does not work. You must copy each processindividually.

    PR2917: In the Administrator interface, the Add andDelete buttons are disabled on the Access tab of the linkedprocess properties dialogs, because access to a linkedprocess is controlled by its parent process. A user groupgranted access to execute a process has implicit access toexecute the linked processes.

    PR2918: The remove item process is slow. For example,removing approximately 25 items requires approximately oneminute. The efficiency of the removal decreases as thenumber of items to be removed increases. Also, after eachitem is deleted, certain pre-link and post-link UDPs areexecuted automatically. Consequently, pre-link andpost-link UDPs are practically unusable for the remove itemprocess.

    PR2919: The promote process may be very slow if youpromote a large number of packages (for example, 200) withVerify Package Dependencies and Enable Package Mergeselected.

    PR2920: In the Workbench Check Out dialog, the followingproblems may occur:

  • Making a selection from the file browser changes thesetting for the Context View Path, even if Use Context ViewPath is checked.

  • Clearing the Use Client View Path check box alsochanges the Context View Path, even if Use Context ViewPath is checked.

  • The Client View Path may be changed when you browsefiles if Use Context View Path is not checked or if UseClient View Path is checked.


    7.8 Harweb

    These issues apply to the General Web Client.

    PR2921: The compare view process does not allow a userto select an alternate view name (other than the defaultWorking View) unless the Public user group is granted Useaccess to the project. The View Chooser says No View. Towork around this problem, add the Public user group to theUse access method for the Harvest project in the context.

    PR2922: The create package process does not format thepackage name correctly if the package name includes one ormore double quotation marks ("). If you specify a packagename that includes a double quotation mark, Harvest assignsthe default package name instead of the name you specified.

    PR2923: The create package process does not display theassociated form if the package name contains one or moresingle quotation marks ('). If you specify a package namethat includes a single quotation mark, Harvest issues aConfirmation Message and closes the form. To display theform, open the Package Properties dialog and use the Formstab to locate the form.

    PR2924: In Harweb, you cannot use a hyphen (-) as thefirst character of a package name. If you attempt to name anew package or rename an existing package with a hyphen (-)as the first character, the attempt fails.

    PR2925: Harweb users cannot check out all files in therepository by specifying only the root path as the pathname for the files to be checked out. Thus, if the defaultview path—the root path ()—is set as the ViewPath Anchor, Harweb users cannot check out the versionsdisplayed when they execute Find Version.

    PR2926: If you are using Harweb hosted in IBM WebSphereStudio and you require Tomcat, you must use Tomcat 4.0.6.For details, see System Requirements earlier in this readmefile.


    7.9 Installation

    PR2927: The Harvest server does not support fullyqualified host names, for example name.domain.com orname1.name2.domain.com. If the host name is fullyqualified, the Harvest server fails to start. To workaround this problem, follow these steps:

  • Define a host name alias as name or name1 for thefully qualified host name.

  • Define an environment variable, $RT_FORCE_NODE_NAMEon UNIX or a system variable RT_FORCE_NODE_NAME on Windowsand set it to the alias defined in step 1 above.

  • Restart the Harvest broker and RTserver if they arealready running.

    PR2928: The Computer Associates shared componentsrequired by Harvest are CA Licensing (Lic98), CACryptographic Engine (CACE), CAI/PT ODBC, and EnterpriseCommunicator (PEC). Generally, on Windows, ComputerAssociates products install each of these components in theProgram FilesCA directory.

    PR2929: On the s/390 machine running SuSE Linux 7.0, thecommand line utilities-only installation does not promptyou to enter the location of RTHOME; however, theinstallation completes successfully. The command lineutilities-only installation includes the PEC library files.

    PR2930: On UNIX and Linux, if you are re-installingHarvest Release 5.2.1, to keep the existing Harvest Release5.2.1 database created by the first installation, you mustuse installation option [2] - Upgrade Harvest. For details,see Installation Considerations.

    PR2989: When installing the Harvest server on Windows,use the Oracle SYSTEM account (or another account with therequired DBA privileges). If you use the Oracle SYSaccount, the installation program may "hang" (stop but notclose) without displaying error messages. If you experiencethis problem, use the Windows Task Manager to close theinstallation program. Then run the installation programagain, using the Oracle SYSTEM account.

    PR2990: In the chapter "Installing on UNIX and Linux,"the Harvest Install Guide incorrectly states thatyou must log on to UNIX or Linux as the root user toinstall the Computer Associates Cryptographic Engine(CACE). You can install CACE on UNIX or Linux under anon-root account. The Harvest Release 5.2.1 CACEinstallation accepts an installation path directoryargument.

    PR2991: On the Harvest Release 5.2.1 InstallationCD, the cmdonly folder contains a subfolder for EnterpriseCommunicator (PEC) 4.5 on s/390. This subfolder is notnecessary, because the Harvest command-line-utilities-onlyinstallation on z/OS includes the PEC files with theHarvest library files. Therefore, you can ignore thissubfolder.


    7.10 Illegal Characters

    PR2931: On Windows, a load repository command fails withthe following error message if the repository name includesa forward slash (/) or backward slash ():
    Harvest Output: "E03020151: Error: Invalid View Path:   "

    Therefore, ensure that the Harvest repository nameincludes no forward or backward slashes.

    PR2932: If you rename a checked-in item to includeillegal Harvest characters and then attempt to check outthe new version, the check out attempt fails with thefollowing error message:
    Harvest Output: "E03020028: File Agent error for item : Permission denied."

    On Windows, the following characters are illegal andtherefore cannot be used in Harvest file names:

  • quotation mark (")

  • forward slash (/), backward slash (), or verticalseparator (|)

  • colon (:)

  • asterisk (*)

  • question mark (?)

  • carets (< >)

    On UNIX and Linux, the forward slash (/) is illegal andmay not be used in Harvest file names.


    7.11 Linux

    PR2934: If you are installing Harvest on Linux Red Hat9, you must set the environment variableLD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 after the installation. For details,see Installation Considerations earlier in this readme file.


    7.12 Password Policy

    PR2935: When AllowUsernameAsPassword = false, a passwordcan be the user's name if the case of one or more lettersis different. For example, user rabbit can create passwordRABBIT, Rabbit, raBBit, and so on. Validation fails only onpassword rabbit.

    PR2936: A user with a # character at the beginning ofthe user name (for example, #uno) cannot receive a useroverride using hppolset because # denotes a comment in thepassword policy configuration file.


    7.13 Security Concerns

    PR2937: Installing the Harvest components requires onlysystem user access (the system user named harvest).However, installing the required Computer Associates sharedcomponents for the first time requires root user access.The Computer Associates shared components required byHarvest are CA Licensing (Lic98), CA Cryptographic Engine(CACE), CAI/PT ODBC, and Enterprise Communicator (PEC).


    7.14 Version Control Interface (VCI)

    PR2938: When you are using Harvest with the VersionControl Interface (VCI) on Windows 2003 or Windows .NET,setting the Check out Automatically option of the Tools,Options dialog does not check out files automatically. Usethe following steps as a work around:

  • Open the Options dialog.

  • Select the Check out automatically option.

  • Ensure that this option is not selected: allowchecked in items to be edited.

  • In your Harvest project, remove all check outprocesses except check out for update.

  • Open the Checkout Properties dialog and ensure thatUpdate is the only mode enabled.

    After you have completed these steps, if you edit achecked in file, the file is checked out automaticallywithout invoking any dialog.

    PR2939: When checking out files using Version ControlInterface with Visual Studio 6.x or Visual Studio .NET, youmay use the Synchronize or Browse checkoutoption from the Advanced Checkout dialog. Synchronizesynchronizes the project in Harvest with the versions onthe local file system. Browse replaces the files on thelocal file system with the latest versions from Harvest.Both operations will complete successfully in Harvest.Afterwards, the files remain checked in and read-only.However, both operations appear to fail because VisualStudio displays an error message. This error message isdisplayed because Visual Studio does not support thesefeatures.


    7.15 WebSphere Studio Integration (WSAD Integration)

    PR2998: If you open a resource in the Navigator byright-clicking and selecting Open in New Window, then bothwindows are closed when close the new window.

    PR2999: WebSphere Studio Integration does not supportrefactoring of folders.

    PR3000: The user interface sometimes becomes unstablewhen you are using package lists, version lists, or itemlists that contain more than 5000 list items. To avoid thisproblem, close the Harvest list view when you are workingwith extremely large projects or lists.

    PR2940: While working in the Workspace, suppose youclose a project and disconnect from the Harvest repository.If you then open the same project and attempt tosynchronize, you may receive a message similar to thefollowing:
    An unexpected Error has occurred

    This message means that the connection to the Harvestrepository is not available, because you disconnected fromit earlier.

    PR2942: If you are using WebSphere Application Server4.0.x or 5.x as your Harweb web server, you are logged outthe first time you start Harweb from WebSphere Studio,after you press any key. This logout happens only onceafter your initial logon. Afterwards, you can start Harwebfrom WebSphere Studio without being logged out.

    PR2943: Before you can delete a folder in the WSADIntegration Navigator view, you must do the following:

  • Use the Harvest Administrator interface to deletethe folder and all its items.

  • Synchronize with Harvest in WSAD Integration.

    PR2944: While working in project, if you rename an itemand then attempt to rename it back to its old name, youreceive an error message similar to the following:
    Cannot rename item; new name already exists.

    The functionality to rename an item and then rename itback to its old name is not supported by the Harvestarchitecture or WSAD Integration.

    PR2945: If WebSphere Studio users are forced to changetheir passwords when logging in to WebSphere Studio andthen try to open their projects in Harvest repositories,they are denied access and receive an "incorrect login"message. To open their Harvest projects, these users mustlog out of WebSphere Studio and log back in, using theirnew passwords.

    PR2946: Suppose that two users are working on the samepackage, and one user runs an interactive merge processwhile the second user wants to check out files for thatpackage. The first user running the interactive mergeprocess is locking the package so that the second usercannot check out the files. The second user receives amessage displaying that the files are locked because aninteractive merge process is in progress. The messagedisplays the machine name (but not the user name) that hasthe files checked out.

    PR2947: If a process is changed in the Harvest Admin GUIwhile WebSphere Studio Integration is open, WebSphereStudio Integration does not display the change until it(WebSphere Studio Integration) is stopped and restarted.

    PR2948: If the Client Path entered in the Set HarvestContext dialog is read-only and you attempt to use the Addto Workspace function, the attempt fails and an errormessage is displayed. This error message does not specifythat the path is read-only.

    PR2949: If you are using Harweb hosted in IBM WebSphereStudio and you require Tomcat, you must use Tomcat 4.0.6.For details, see System Requirements earlier in this readmefile.

    PR2950: When you replace the latest version of a filewith a previous version, and attempt to edit this previousversion, the file is checked out as the latest version.

    PR2951: This issue applies if you perform the followingsteps while using WSAD 5.1.1 and Eclipse 2.1.2 with HarvestRelease 5.2.1:

  • Create a project, add files, share the project withHarvest, and then rename one or more of the files.

  • In Navigator view, select Replace With, Version InHarvest.

    In the Version Compare window, select version 0 (N),right-click, and select Checkout (Check out for concurrentupdate must be available).

  • From WSAD Integration, attempt to perform any of thefollowing operations on a renamed file, from the Team menu:Undo Checkout, Check In and Keep, or Check In and Release.Each attempt results in the following errors:
    E0202011b: Error: Item has been previously renamed within the project.           Check in failed for file: D:Workspace_WSSDprojoffline.txtE03060019: ERROR: Process Execute failed. Process Name: Check In Items.

    PR2953: If you share a project, un-share it, immediatelyshare it again, and then attempt to use the Move and Deletefunctions for the files in that project, the attempt fails,and Harvest displays an error message similar to thefollowing:
    Problems occurred moving the selected resources:  Resource is out of syncwith the file system...

    To fix this problem, manually refresh the files bydouble-clicking them.


    7.16 Direct Connect Considerations

    The implementation of direct connection from Client toServer, Client to Remote Agent, and Remote Agent to Serverintroduces the following requirements:

  • Client to Server (for example: checkout to localfile system): Client host must be able to resolve theServer's hostname to an IP address.

  • Client to Remote Agent (for example: login to RemoteAgent): Client host must be able to resolve the RemoteAgent's hostname to an IP address.

  • Remote Agent to Server (for example: checkout toRemote Agent): Remote Agent host must be able to resolvethe Server's hostname to an IP address.

    Note: Hostname refers to a text string up to 24characters drawn from the alphabet (A-Z), digits (0-9),minus sign (-). No distinction is made between upper andlower case. The first character must be an alpha character.The last character must not be a minus sign.


    8.0 Language Certifications

    After English GA, the English versions of the Harvestserver, client, agent, and Harweb have been certified torun on machines designed to use the following languages:French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil),Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and SimplifiedChinese. This certification means that these Englishversions can run on the non-English operating systems onthose machines. It is not intended to mean that theseversions are localized for those markets and languages.


    9.0 Documentation

    Each PDF guide in a documentation set has a uniqueDocument ID (DID) that appears on the title page of theguide. The DID uses the first six characters to identifythe guide, a hyphen, then two characters at the end toidentify the edition and language in which it is written.For example, E00110-1E identifies the first edition of theEnglish version of the Release Summary. When thesecond edition of this guide is published, the DID isincremented to E00110-2E. The DID is used withoutthe hyphen for the .PDF file on the product media and onSupportConnect as shown in File Name column of thefollowing table.
