Known Issues 

  • Issues with UPM
    • At times, especially in case of slow connections, RMsis download terminates without completing the installation. UPM does not give an error prompt in this case.
  • Internet Explorer in Compatibility Mode
    • Please note that RMsis does not support IE-7 and older browsers.
    • So, IE-8 and later versions, when run in compatibility mode, may show problems.
  • Open JDK is not recommended
    • Recently we found an issue with Open JDK.
    • Since Atlassian also does not recommend the same, it is advisable to use Oracle / Sun JVM.

RMsis V.1.5.1

Notes on Additional Functions - RMsis v.1.5.1-r72

Many users had recently reported installation related issues. After analysis, it turned out to be issues related to two primary areas:

  1. Incorrect Network Configuration
  2. JIRA UPM Timeout, while RMsis installation was still running. This lead to disabling of RMsis plugin and consequently lot of unpredictability.

Here is a document, explaining the background of this issue, possibilities and solutions : RMsis fails to start after configuration - possible causes and solutions

Solutions implemented

  1. Diagnostics have been built into the installer; so as to give an idea to the administrators about the possible causes of problems.
  2. Now the Plugin completes it's initialization much more quickly and predictability; while it defers the diagnostics and other time consuming processes to later stages.
