There is another ITM 6.1 deployment Redbook out. This is a detailed book on many aspects of ITM 6.1. Jason and I both worked on this book. Feel free to use this thread to discuss questions about examples in the book also any errors or omissions. The GBS team will be updating this thread from time to time to add info or notes used in our ITM 6.1 deployments.
