Protecting Your Deployment from Security
Vulnerabilities
Make sure you take the necessary precautions to protect your PPM Center deployment from general
security vulnerabilities, especially those related to Web server and related infrastructure vulnerabilities.
Patch and configure your Web server's operating system and DNS servers to prevent malicious attacks
that could put your organization and data at risk. You can take such steps as disabling unused ports or
enabling SSL in your environment. Consult your Web server vendor for the latest patches to prevent
harmful attacks such as cross-site scripting.

To install version 9.31.0001:
1. Back up your database.
2. Stop the PPM Server. The patch cannot be installed on an active server,
3. Copy the patch file ppm-931-patch0001.jar to the <PPM_Home> directory. This is the directory
where the PPM Server is installed.
4. Change to the <PPM_Home>/bin directory.
5. Start the installation using the following command:
sh ./kDeploy.sh -i patch0001
6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the patch installation.
7. Start the PPM Server.

Enhancements in Version 9.31.0001
The following enhancements are included in PPM Centerversion 9.31.0001:

l
"Enhancements to Microsoft Project Plug-in " on the next page

Enhanced Calculation of Forecast Labor Cost
The forecast labor cost of a staffing profile equals the total sum of forecast labor costs of all positions
in this staffing profile. PPM calculates the forecast labor cost of a position as follows:
Forecast labor cost of a position = Sum of (Total assignments * Cost rate of the resource/position+
Unmet demand * Cost rate of the position)
If there is over-allocation on assignments, the unmet demand value becomes negative. In previous
versions, PPM ignores the negative value (does not include the negative value) in the calculation of
forecast labor cost.
In version 9.31.0001, you can decide whether negative unmet demand value should be ignored by using
the following parameter in the server.conf file:
Parameter Name
Usage, Description
Value
IGNORE_NEGATIVE_UNMET_
DEMAND
If you set this parameter to true, PPM
ignores negative unmet demand value in
the calculation of forecast labor cost.
Default value: true
Valid values: true, false
If you set this parameter to false, PPM
does not ignore negative unmet demand
value (regards the negative unmet
demand value as it is) in the calculation of
forecast labor cost.

Chapter 5: Known Problems and Limitations
Chapter 5: Known Problems and Limitations
The following problems and limitations are known to exist in PPM Center version 9.31.0001 or later. The
problems are categorized by the affected product area. If a problem has an assigned internal tracking
number, that tracking number is provided (in parentheses) at the end of the problem description.
Known Problems and Limitations in 9.31.0001
Platform
Problem: If Japanese is the default language of Java Virtual Machine, the email notification is displayed
in Japanese even though the log-in language is English. (QCCR1L57791)
Workaround: If the PPM instance is on a platform whose operating system language is Japanese, you
must explicitly specify English as the default language of Java Virtual Machine.
To do so, change <PPM_HOME>/bin/kStart.sh by adding the line: SERVER_OPTION="$SERVER_OPTION
-Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US" after the following:
if [ "$OS_NAME" = "AIX" ]; then
SERVER_OPTION=""
else
SERVER_OPTION="-server"
fi
Problem: PPM server crashes due to a JVM bug. (QCCR1L57796)
Workaround: None.
This is a known issue related to GZIP compression in Oracle Java Virtual Machine (for details, see
http://bugs.java.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=8028216). If you see GZIP exceptions in the
server log, you should set the parameter GZIP_ENCODING_ENABLED to false until Oracle fixes the issue.
