Issue: When you attempt to connect to or create a database on a SQL Server but mistakenly specify Oracle as the database type, the SQL Server may crash.

Workaround: Ensure that you specify the correct database type. Restart the SQL Server if it has crashed.

Issue: The import (from existing database) functionality doesn"t work with all versions of Oracle.

Workaround: Use Oracle version 8.1.6 or higher.

Issue: While expanding Routing Rules with SilkRadar Administrative Console, an error may occure when updating issues using the Issue Manager.

Workaround: Wait until the Administrative Console has finished.
Note: The DB remains consistent and the entered data is not lost on the web gui, so clicking save again solves this problem.


Issue: When installing a standalone SilkCentral Issue Manager 3.2 environment the SilkCentral Test Manager Administration Guide (which conatins administrative information about Test Manager and Issue Manager) is not copied to your installation.
