|8.0.0.x            | 1. Determine the WAS version used by your CM server.    |
|8.0.1.x            |    Navigate to the CM profile directory (either the     |
|9.0.0.x            |    profile you specified when installing ClearQuest, or |
|9.0.1.x            |    <clearquest-home>/cqweb/cqwebprofile), then execute  |
|                   |    the script: bin/versionInfo.sh (UNIX) or bin\        |
|                   |    versionInfo.bat (Windows). The output includes a     |
|                   |    section "IBM WebSphere Application Server". Make note|

|                   |    server.                                              |
|                   | 3. Apply the appropriate WebSphere Application Server   |
|                   |    fix directly to your CM server host. No              |
