Fix: The fix better manages cookies in the HTTP response header in OSLC communication with ClearQuest Web. PM78954 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer plugin for Eclipse can cause the Progress indicator to linger on builds when the projects are outside of source control. Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified to better handle builds of projects outside of source control. PM78659 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer has a bug where if a user checks out a model, then checks it in, an attempt to check it out once more results in an out of sync message. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer fixes a bug where if a user checks out a model, then checks it in, then checks it out once more, no errors are displayed. PM78656 Problem: The performance of the ClearTeam Explorer when integrated with RSARTE degrades greatly as the number of model fragments increases. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer has improved performance for models that contains large numbers of fragments. PM78401 Problem: You may see the following error when running an rccbuild in IBM Rational ClearCase Mainframe Connectors: The DDName for the extension 'BCL.T³ Í' could not be determined Fix: ClearCase Mainframe Connectors file extension name parsing has been corrected PM77639 Problem: When IBM-273 code page is used, file whose name includes $can not be added to source control via ClearCase Mainframe Connectors. Fix: This code page conversion error has been resolved. PM77634 Problem: After TSC.LOG was removed ClearCase Mainframe Connectors fail when user enters VL to see the log. Fix: ClearCase Mainframe Connectors VL no longer fails after TSC.LOG is removed. PM77379 Problem: ClearCase users would see occasional blue screens when building in a high load environment with MVFS cache values set too large. Fix: A data storage/management issue has been corrected. PM77255 Problem: Rational ClearCase Explorer shows owner/group of view private files within the MVFS to be NOBODY/NOBODY. Fix: ClearCase Explorer now shows correct owner/group of view private files. PM77148 Problem: ClearCase Mainframe Connectors exhibits poor performance while listing files and locating files on z/OS z1.11 (and before) when not using IBM-1047 server code page. Fix: A single handler converting from IBM-1047 to specified server code page is now used. PM77095 Problem: An error is received while opening version tree of a symbolically linked file from ClearCase Explorer Fix: ClearCase Explorer now converts the symbolic link target path from relative to absolute and the version tree is correctly opened. PM76790 Problem: ClearQuest-enabling a ClearCase UCM Project must be done by the project VOB owner. Fix: ClearQuest-enabling a ClearCase UCM Project no longer must be done by the project VOB owner. PM76613 Problem: Within ClearTeam Explorer, you will see that the right-click context menu does not show the "New" option when the current VOB directory has a symbolic link to this location. Following the directory tree down to the non-symbolically linked version of the directory does show the context menu. Fix: For Dynamic view if the folder happens to be a symbolic link 'New' menu will not appear in details view. For Web views, in connected mode if the folder is identified as a symbolic link in ClearTeam Explorer client (refreshed and in its most recent state) 'New' menu will not appear in details view for this folder. For rest of the cases including the case where in web views, folder proxy is a symbolic link but we are not sure of the symbolic link's property value because user is operating in disconnected mode, or even if connected but folder state is not refreshed to correctly identify it as a symbolic link, creation of 'New' menu will happen. PM76509 Problem: Rational MultiSite shipping server failed to send packet file due to the "deferred behavior" introduced from MicroSoft Windows 2008 server OS. Even if with a "good" binding port, socket connection could still fail for WSAEADDRINUSE error. Fix: MultiSite shipping server can now handle the "deferred bind on connect" behavior introduced in MicroSoft Windows 2008 server OS. PM76505 Problem: When the Rational MultiSite shipping server encounters a connection or other TCP/IP socket error on Microsoft Windows, an incorrect error message is printed in the shipping server logs. Fix: Rational MultiSite shipping server now correctly logs (in the shipping server logs) connection and other TCP/IP socket errors on Microsoft Windows. PM76376 Problem: In ClearCase, when using$filelist for a multiple selection in a customized Context menu the filenames will be truncated when a file/pathname contains "&" Fix: The paths are now correctly quoted when forming the command to be executed. PM75831 Problem: "cleartool ln -s" does not report an existing view private link as an error. ClearCase creates the symbolic link and it is eclipsed by the view private one. Fix: An error will now be displayed indicating that the file already exists. PM75236 Problem: Eclipse re-factor functions (rename and move) fail on directories with ClearTeam Explorer. Fix: The invalidation of the elements of the cache has been corrected. PM74104 Problem: clearimport will crash or have a segmentation fault when metadata is imported that contains new line characters. Fix: clearimport now handles metadata that contains new line characters. PM70037 Problem: In some cases, the ClearTeam Explorer throws a NullPointerException, after certain selection in the IDE workspace Fix: ClearTeam Explorer no longer issues a NullPointerException on certain selections in the IDE workspace PM70008 Problem: When output of 'cleartool desc -fmt' exceeds 153kb, output is truncated and customer is not aware of the truncation. Fix: The buffer is now expanded as needed so that all data is returned/displayed. PM68068 Problem: When using ClearCase to access cleartext files over NFSv4 on RHEL6.3 systems, the user would receive ENOTDIR errors. Fix: ClearCase MVFS file opens are now correctly handled over NFSv4.

Fix: Log onto CCRC WAN server with "Store Credentials" checked has been fixed. PM48938 Problem: When a time out occurs in a communication from ClearCase dynamic view client to the view server, then there might be EIO errors in the system log on the client and performance of the view server process could degrade. Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase which leads to degraded performance of the view server process and EIO errors in the system log of the ClearCase dynamic view client machine. PM35112 Problem: When accessing "\\view" on a Windows machine running Microsoft Terminal Services, you may receive the error "\\view is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. " Fix: Corrected permission assigned to certain internal ClearCase resources.

Fix Pack 5 (8.0.0.5)
 APAR Description PM48938 Problem: When a time out occurs in a communication from ClearCase dynamic view client to the view server, then there might be EIO errors in the system log on the client and performance of the view server process could degrade. Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase which leads to degraded performance of the view server process and EIO errors in the system log of the ClearCase dynamic view client machine. PM56094 Problem: Changing the Extended Naming Suffix was not working on 64-bit Windows machines. So, the default suffix (@@) is still in effect. Fix: Corrects a problem where the Windows system registry key which stores a non-default value for the ClearCase extended naming suffix was redirected on 64-bit Windows systems, so it was invisible to MVFS. The registry key was changed to a nonredirected location. PM59537 Problem: ClearCase and ClearQuest removed the original MSI packages used to install 3rdParty components, upon cleanning up the Windows MSI cache, the packages had problems to perform Installation Manager Operations. Fix: Updated the ClearCase / ClearQuest to keep a copy of the original MSI packages inside the Install directory in case the machine's MSI cache is cleared, in this situation the MSI system will have the original MSI path and prevent problems on the Installation Manager Operations. PM66907 Problem: mklbtype -acquire -global allows you to acquire a lbtype that is locked The end result is a unlocked global lbtype with a locked local copy Fix: An inconsistency in the handling of locked label types was fixed; if the client type is locked, it is reported as not acquirable, and the operation continues with other types. PM67147 Problem: When attempting to create a Managed Code "wrapper" for the CCPolicy put_value() method, there seems to be no way to get Visual C++ 2010 to accept the CCPolicy::put_value method. Fix: The definition of the CCPolicy put_value variable was changed from BSTR* to BSTR, to correct a problem with use of that method with some compilers. PM67399 Problem: ClearCase Automation library crashes when called from Multi-threaded code Fix: A race condition caused by incorrect locking was fixed in the ClearCase Automation Library. PM67792 Problem: User could not determine how to create a key binding to navigate to the ClearCase Details view. Fix: Added a section on Accessibility features to the "Developing -> Developing software with Rational ClearTeam Explorer -> Team software development with ClearCase" Help topic and used the case of creating a key binding to navigate to the ClearCase Details window as a specific example. PM68052 Problem: The ClearCase registry may contain files with .new and .old extensions. Fix: This fix attempts to clean up these .new and .old registry files when the albd_server is starting, by restoring the registry file corresponding to the .new or .old file, and then removing the .old and .new files. PM68213 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase type manager for text files (text_file_delta) can handle individual lines up to 8000 bytes or characters in length. Normally if a user attempts to check in a text file containing a line over 8000 characters an error will be presented and the checkin will fail. In a case where a text file is checked in containing only 7998 bytes and no newline character the checkin will also fail. Fix: A problem in an edge case when calculating line length in the text_file_delta type manager has been corrected. PM68658 Problem: ClearCase online help might fail to launch properly after being used once, the system will throw back an error about library relocation. Fix: Updated the underlying runtime to a version that correctly handles the library relocation. PM68896 Problem: User will see label of type "label_name" already on element error when mklabel recursively if some branch is locked with -nuser while the user is not in the -nuser list. Fix: A change was made in the transaction handling of certain use cases of cleartool mklabel, to prevent incorrect error messages. PM69279 Problem: Lock manager tables can become corrupt and non-recoverable without manual intervention. Fix: Certain system-level error conditions can trigger this defect; sanity checking was added in the code to avoid the possible deadlock. PM69330 Problem: In older versions of the IBM Rational ClearCase cleartool man page for protectvob it states, "Execute this command only while a VOB is quiescent (no active users); it stops and restarts the associated vob_server process, which prevents access to storage pools." The man page in version 7.x and 8.x do not clearly state this.  Since this is not stated clearly some customer have attempted to run the command on a VOB being accessed and protectvob failures are seen with errors such as: vob_server.exe(2644): Error: Temporarily unavailable, admin process running as pid 65535 Albd(2284): Error: Server vob_server.exe (pid=2644) on "C:\vobs\VOB1.vbs" died on startup; marking it as "down". vobrpc_server.exe(3292): Error: Problem starting vob_server for vob vobserver1.company.com:C:\vobs\VOB1.vbs vobrpc_server.exe(3292): Error: See albd or vob error logs on host vobserver1.company.com WORKAROUND: Run the protectvob command only on a VOB which is not being accessed at all by any user or process. Fix: The following text has been restored: The protectvob command is used to change various properties of a VOB. Before executing this command, log in to the host where the VOB storage directory resides with the following credentials:   UNIX system or Linux: root   Windows: local administrator, VOB owner, or member of the ClearCase group  Execute this command only when there are no active users of the VOB; it stops and restarts the vob_server process, which prevents access to the storage pools. PM69503 Problem: After manually selecting one or more file/folder elements in the "ClearTeam Details" tab in the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC)/ClearTeam Explorer (CTE), and then changing the sort criteria, results in the selected elements being different ones from the initial ones. Fix: In CCRC/CTE, the current selection in the Details view is now maintained when the columns are resorted. PM70374 Problem: Clearmake failures occur when the view_db_crs file grows past 2 GB. Fix: The maximum size of the view_server's configuration record file was increased from 2Gb to 4Gb. PM70385 Problem: ClearCase 8.0 Information Center does not document IHS 8.0 SSL configuration. Fix: Documentation pertaining to IHS 8.0 SSL configuration has been updated in the ClearCase Information Center. PM70878 Problem: Cleartool crashes when using ct describe -fmt '%{versions}p' on an activity with a very large changeset Fix: A segmentation fault in certain use cases of cleartool commands describe and lsactivity has been fixed. PM70970 Problem: ClearCase primary and auxiliary groups not honored correctly on Windows platforms in the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) WAN Server. Fix: A change was made to to ensure that the environment variables related to the groups specified, are updated earlier in the processing of the command. PM70972 Problem: When specifying groups within ClearTeam Explorer, 770 permissions within a VOB cause permission denied when not owner Fix: A change was made to ensure that the environment variables related to the groups specified, are updated earlier in the processing of the command. PM71714 Problem: When running an IBM Rational ClearCase server on Microsoft Windows 2008 or 2008 R2, a sporadic port allocation failure may occur. Fix: Logic was added to correctly interpret winsock errors in certain conditions on Windows 2008 and 2008 R2. PM72176 Problem: Users experience "dead connection" error in ClearQuest when attempting to deliver ClearCase activities in a ClearQuest enabled project, using the ClearTeam Explorer, CTE.  This was caused by too many ClearQuest sessions and subsequent database connections being created during CCRC operations involving integration with ClearQuest. Fix: A change was made to ensure that the ClearQuest sessions do not increase with each operation by correctly including the JSESSIONID in request headers. PM72260 Problem: SQUID tracing does not work through the CCBE. Fix: A problem with the logging calls used in the server code was corrected.  Review technote 1127287: Not a publish complete doc for additional details on correctly enabling tracing. PM72918 Problem: In ClearTeam Explorer, when the selection state of a folders' contents were modified, the resource tree did not correctly update the selection state of the folders. Fix: Folder nodes in the tree correctly reflect when their contained resources are unselected, partially selected, or fully selected in ClearTeam Explorer. PM72979 Problem: Using the IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) plugin to migrate to Rational Application Developer (RAD) 8.x from Rational Software Architect (RSA) 7.5.x succeeds, but a blocking dialog showing a property error and requiring additional user intervention appears. Fix: The property is now being fetched when needed resulting in no blocking error dialog. PM73326 Problem: In the ClearTeam Explorer, an RSA model comparison results in an incorrect diff. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer has been corrected to order contributors according to Eclipse ordering, not the standard ClearCase ordering. This results in a correct RSA model diff, but the contributors are now displayed in a different order from ClearCase. PM73432 Problem: When using the ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest Web Integration, and a record is transitioned to the complete state by the integration, the order of operations is incorrect. Fix: The order of operations has been corrected when the ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest Web Integration does an automatic transition to complete on a record. PM73586 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer slows down an Eclipse build of an uncontrolled project on a machine that does not have MVFS installed Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) configuration validation which was adding overhead to certain operations in CTE. PM74114 Problem: RCleartool (a.k.a. ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) CLI) takes more time to complete a load of many directories and files than the ClearTeam Explorer GUI. Fix: RCleartool has been fixed to have equal or better performance than the ClearTeam Explorer GUI. PM74428 Problem: The Checkouts view in ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) may show files as checked in if they are checked out outside of CTE. Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase where the Checkouts view in CTE may show files as checked in if they are checked out outside of CTE. PM75101 Problem: In the ClearTeam Explorer, users cannot deliver in a stream context when the stream has web views attached Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearTeam Explorer where users cannot deliver in a stream context when the stream has web views attached PM75238 Problem: The IBM Installation Manager panel was not displaying the correct version for non-English operating systems. Fix: The code has been updated to have a generic extraction of the correct version on the IBM Installation Manager panel independently of the Operating System language. PM75306 Problem: The Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) is unable to delete a IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE) model fragment during an 'absorb' operation if the fragment has checkouts on any branch. Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase where The Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) is unable to delete a IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE) model fragment during an 'absorb' operation if the fragment has checkouts on any branch. PM75703 Problem: Creating a stream from CLI or ClearTeam Explorer may result in unexpected errors with VOBs at feature level 7. Fix: Fixes issues surrounding creation of streams in feature level 7 VOBs. PM76372 Problem: When a user intends to start ClearCase Mainframe Connectors (CCz) rccTSOServer in certain environment where more than one network adapters are configured, sometimes addrinfo list returned from  getaddrinfo() has IPV4 address as the first one and IPV6 address as the second one. But if IPV6 network is not configured well, socket creation will fail using IPV6 protocol and exception is thrown. And then rccTSOServer has no opportunity to create socket using IPV4 protocol. So at last rccTSOServer will fail to start. Fix: When socket creation  fails using IPV6 protocol, CCz rccTSOServer does not throw exception any more while we return with an error code and then  rccTSOServer can have an opportunity to create socket using IPV4 protocol. PM13994 Problem: In ClearCase running on AIX, when there are a large number of VOBs mounted (e.g., hundreds in some customer cases) and the user is cd'd into a view-extended directory pathname and uses the getwd() call to find the current directory pathname (e.g., the /bin/pwd command), they may experience a long delay (many seconds) before getting the current directory pathname (e.g., seeing the pathname from /bin/pwd). Fix: Changes were made in both Clearcase MVFS and the AIX kernel to improve the performance of getwd() in a working directory with a view-extended path. Previously, getwd() had to do stat() syscalls on each mounted VOB as part of generating the working directory pathname. Each stat() call might take a fraction of a second (or even a second or more), so with many VOBs the total time could be many seconds, or even minutes. With these changes, the stat() calls are no longer needed and the entire pathname generation is speeded up. The AIX change and the Clearcase change can be installed independently, but the performance improvement won't be seen until both changes are installed. The AIX kernel APARs containing the AIX changes are: IV22023 and IV31361 and IV31359 (will be AIX 7.1 TL2) IV31750 (will be AIX 6.1 TL9 PM50079 Problem: When using the shared library libatriagetcwd_interposer.so on Solaris 10 as documented in Technote 1501830: ClearCase on Solaris 10, error "pwd: cannot determine current directory!", some instances of the find or df commands would fail. Fix: A patch to the Solaris operating system is now available which eliminates the need for the libatriagetcwd_interposer library.  This patch is 147440-24 for SPARC systems, or 147441-24 for x86 systems. PM52778 Problem: A performance degradation was observed for many cleartool commands running on HP-UX.  This was traced to inefficient handling of a message catalog while loading a shared library. Fix: HP-UX patch PHCO_42265 and any of its successors include a change to the strerror(3C) function to improve performance.  This patch is recommended for all ClearCase installations on HP-UX 11.31. PM62982 Problem: crmregister generates core when connection file is 0 byte Fix: Fixed the handling of some edge cases of the connection configuration file for crmregister. PM64312 Problem: A Linux user who mounts a disk or partition and attempts to access a file in that partition using view-extened pathnames might be unable to unmount that disk or partition. Fix: A problem with incorrect use counts on dentries in certain kernel versions was corrected. PM70152 Problem: A ClearCase user on Linux could encounter Linux kernel panics in the kmem_ptr_validate kernel function. Fix: There is a problem in some versions of the Linux kernel function d_validate; a change was made to ClearCase to eliminate use of this function. PM71119 Problem: Unless setgroup-swap is called either from the directory where it resides or with the full path to the utility, it returns 'Error with stat() call on file setgroup-swap'. Fix: The logic for checking for suid permission was corrected, allowing the setgroup-swap utility to be started from any directory. PM72354 Problem: When you use a cleartool find command in an IBM Rational ClearCase snapshot view where there is a cross-VOB symbolic link, which points to a target element in another VOB, certain variations of the find command produce the following error: cleartool: Error: Not a vob object. Fix: A problem which caused an invalid oid to be returned for a symbolic link in a ClearCase snapshot view has been corrected. PM76801 Problem: ClearCase Mainframe Connectors (CCz) RccTSOServer mode 2 authentication fails with LDAP on Redhat Linux. Fix: Added LDAP authentication support in RccTSOServer for Mainframe Connectors on Redhat Linux.

Fix Pack 4 (8.0.0.4)
 APAR Description PM23142 Problem: The cleartool 'ls' command will occasionally report an error, "cleartool: Error: Trouble reading directory", when issued within a directory under the control of the ClearCase MVFS. Fix: ClearCase's caching and synchronization logic was modified to more quickly detect and adapt to remote changes of directory versions. PM34445 Problem: db_server unnecessarily calls sysutl_nfs_flush twice for each read transaction Fix: A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.2.8 and 8.0.0.4 PM41812 Problem: Windows VOB servers may time out attempting to lock the vista.taf file. Fix: Allow the ability to modify the delays between lock attempts, and the number of attempts before aborting the lock attempt. PM49234 Problem: Under consistent heavy load on a given ClearCase dynamic view client, "xid mismatch" errors are encountered in MVFS and is logged accordingly in mvfs_log. Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase and resolves the "xid mismatch" error. PM52249 Problem: xclearcase on UNIX fails to merge elements with merge type set to 'copy' Fix: xclearcase correctly supports to merge element with element type's merge type set to 'copy'. PM52447 Problem: In UCM if the user has created baselines on a stream and rebases to a composite baseline which is the original foundation baseline of the stream or in other words at the '0'th index of the timeline for that component , then lsbl -component will not display the baseline created by stream on the master site and will give INTERNAL ERROR on the other replica sites. Fix: The lsbl -component display now shows the UCM baseline properly at the replica sites. PM52732 Problem: Modifying the mvfs_ctxt_atime_refresh within mvfs_tunables.c and rebuilding the MVFS will not change the value. Fix: Fix a problem with the tunable parameter mvfs_ctxt_atime_refresh being always the default value instead of the value set. PM55266 Problem: ClearCase upgrades overwrote the exports.mvfs file during the upgrade process, removing customizations. Fix: ClearCase now correctly preserves custom exports.mvfs files across upgrades. Review technote 1596035: Upgrading IBM Rational ClearCase causes the file /etc/exports.mvfs to be overwritten to avoid the issue. PM55490 Problem: customer may have VOB access issue at the time when an element with a large number of branches and/or versions. Fix: a clear warning message with good info is provided and customer is encouraged to manually remove some branches/versions before finally destroying the element to avoid VOB access issue. PM59550 Problem: /etc/init.d/clearcase fails to stop or start ClearCase service within Solaris Non-global zone of server-only installation. Fix: /etc/init.d/clearcase correctly start and stop ClearCase services within Solaris non-global zone of server-only installation. PM60069 Problem: crmregister -gui option does not work with the -url option when user credentials are not specified on the command line. Fix: crmregister correctly supports the prompting for user credentials when -url and -gui options are used together. PM60259 Problem: Wildcard registry lookups don't scale for registries with a large number of objects Fix: A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.2.8 and 8.0.0.4 PM60302 Problem: Occasionally, system facilities such as the 'pwd' command and the 'getcwd' function and its equivalents will fail when executed from within a newly created directory under control of the ClearCase MVFS. Fix: The ClearCase MVFS's cache and synchronization logic has been corrected to prevent the caching of invalid directory entry information during periods of heavy load. PM60644 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearCase's makefile based build utility Clearmake, it throws "clearmake: Error: Unable to place marker in MVFS audit - Invalid argument" error for the recursive builds where parent make is invoked with .NO_CONFIG_REC target and there is no fresh build happening in the child make. This behaviour is seen in ClearCase 7.1.2.7 or 8.0.0.3 or prior versions. Fix: After the fix, for the recursive make builds where parent build audit is not getting audited and there is no fresh build happening in the child make, the error "clearmake: Error: Unable to place marker in MVFS audit - Invalid argument" will not be thrown. PM60858 Problem: ClearCase Project Explorer crashes when obtaining Policies of a CQ-enabled UCM project with certain schemas. Fix: Resolves an issue in the UCM ClearCase integration with ClearQuest where certain UCM schemas would cause the ClearCase Project Explorer to crash when obtaining CQ Policies. PM62396 Problem: When running in an interactive cleartool shell, after executing a cleartool command that modifies ClearCase environment variables, and then executing a shell command (!), there are some ClearCase environment variables that remain set in the new shell environment, which may affect future Cleartool commands. Fix: When executing a shell command (!) while in an interactive cleartool command, the ClearCase environment variables are cleared. PM62894 Problem: ClearCase operations such as checkout of UTF8 type files fails with CCRC WAN Server crash. Fix: UTF8 type files are now checked out successfully without a CCRC WAN Server crash PM63804 Problem: Lock obsolete a foundation baseline of a child stream results in all baselines on that stream not being displayed in the base. If a component baseline that happens to be also a foundation baseline of a stream is locked-obsolete, then the component tree browser with the "Show obsolete baselines" tick-box unset, hides not only that baseline, but also and incorrectly *all* the baselines of the stream of which the just locked-obsoleted baseline is the foundation baseline. Fix: The fix ensures that If you have an obsolete baseline which is the foundation baseline for other stream, after unselecting the option for "Show obsolete baselines", the display should only hide the obsolete baseline and not any other nodes (other streams and non-obsolete baselines). If any node is made invisible, the connection line is drawn between its adjacent visible nodes. PM64202 Problem: In a very specific scenario, multiple requests to db_server process will make lockmgr keeping incorrect signal handler for SIGALRM. Then db_server will core dump after receiving SIGALRM. Fix: db_server no longer core dumps after receiving SIGALRM. PM64329 Problem: A large number of such failed CCRC login attempts in a short period of time may cause CCRC WAN Server to reach the ccrcMaxSessionsOverall limit (200 by default), preventing other legitimate users from logging in. Fix: Failed logins are no longer counted against the max sessions overall limit, which keeps the server sessions free for normal use. PM64431 Problem: CCz takes some of Chinese characters in comments as invalid. Fix: A fix is available in 7.1.2.8 and 8.0.0.4. PM64899 Problem: Some operations with webviews in IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer 8.0 may be slower than IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC).  Examples include mkelem and checkin. Fix: A fix for the performance issue is available in Rational ClearCase release 8.0.0.4. PM65457 Problem: SUMMARY: Documentation of how the CLEARCASE_MKELEM_USE_GRPLIST environment variable functions, common code, for two different commands is different.  Specifically, the documentation for under the 'mkdir' command is simply wrong and should duplicate the correct information as documented under the 'mkelem' command. Fix: Fixed as directed. PM65546 Problem: ClearCase Remote Client RCP does not exist on Solaris x86 but Installation Manager attempts to to install it. Only the CCRC Eclipse plugin is supported on Solaris x86. Fix: Corrected the situation so that CCRC RCP is only allowed to be install on the supported platforms. The IBM Installation Manager will report back an error as: "Package IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client cannot be installed on the current platform (operating system: solaris, architecture: x86)." PM65573 Problem: UCM GUIs (such as clearprojexp.exe) issue multiply redundant identical RPCs to the db_server, thus reducing overall performance. Fix: The number of RPCs sent from the client to the server has been reduced due to a more intelligent caching scheme as well as a rework of some of the RPCs used in retrieving information about ClearCase objects. PM65832 Problem: Login to CCRC WAN server (Rational ClearCase v 8) fails with the following error when the name of the host where CCRC WAN server is installed starts with the characters "ccrc" (e.g. ccrc-test or ccrctest). CRMAP7009: CCRC command "Login" failed: Error:"Malformed server response. The server at "http://ccrc" is not a correctly configured ClearCase Web Server." Fix: The CCRC client code has been modified to correctly handle CCRC WAN Server URLs which have the characters "ccrc" in their host name PM65979 Problem: When a new file element is added to a VOB using the command line(cleartool mklem) that was first added as view private file using IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) most of the file element context menu options such as checkout etc  are greyed out in the right click menu even after refresh(from context menu) is done on the file element. After CTE is restarted the menu options are available in the right click context menu. Fix: The IBM Rational Clear Team Explorer code has been modified to re-fetch the relevant property of the file element when the user selects the refresh option from the right click context menu options PM65981 Problem: In the reference page for the rmstgloc command, the "Description" section of page contradicts information in the "Restrictions" section. Fix: The Description section of rmstgloc has been updated as follows: " ...  Once a storage location is unregistered, you cannot create views or VOBs using mkview –stgloc or mkvob –stgloc. However, you can create views and VOBs at that storage location using the –host, –hpath and –gpath options. ... " The Restrictions section has been updated to note that there are no restrictions. PM66323 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer performs poorly when using large model projects Fix: Fixes a performance problem in the ClearTeam Explorer that hindered logical model usage. PM66577 Problem: Directory merge not working in CTE Fix: Fixes a problem with ClearCase where CTE fails to automatically merge the project directory following a Logical Model Merge. PM66596 Problem: Closing the Logical Model Merge Editor via the 'Close' or 'X' button, will lose the merge result Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase where closing the Logical Model Merge Editor via the "Close" or "X" button will lose the merge result. PM66764 Problem: User can log into ClearCase CM Server on Linux with expired DES-encrypted password Fix: ClearCase CM Server will check password expiration on Linux. PM66796 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer versoin tree truncates the label name by default, thus not allowing a user to see the full name. This is problematic when the most significant characters are at the end of the string. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer provides a button that allows a user to toggle between truncated names and full names. The last state of the button is persisted for the workspace or until changed. PM66857 Problem: In the reference page for the clearfsimport command, the descriptions of the -filter and -mklabel options are incorrect. Fix: The descriptions have been updated as follows: -filter Determines which elements need to be checked out for the import to succeed and checks out only those elements. When this option is specified with --mklabel , the label is applied to newly created directory versions only. -mklabel label Attaches the specified label instance to each element that matches the name of an imported file or directory, whether or not a new version is created. If the label type does not exist, it is created. If the label is already attached to an existing element version, it is moved. PM66878 Problem: Remotely added model elements become view private after merge in target view Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearCase where remotely added model elements become view private in the target view after Logical Model Merge. PM66879 Problem: When model aware checkouts are enabled in the ClearTeam Explorer, the checkout dialog opens with all elements participating in the logical resource selected for checkout. Customer requires that only those elements selected by the user are selected by default. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer provides a new preference that enables the checkout dialog to open with all logical resource elements selected or only those logical resource elements selected by the user. PM66880 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer version tree does not allow the ability to sort labels in the order in which they were applied with the most recent displayed first. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer version tree provides a button that allows a user to toggle between label names sorted alphanumerically and label names sorted by the time they were applied (most recent first). The last state of the button is persisted for the workspace or until changed. PM67191 Problem: Aggregated checkin not showing dialog with checked-out files in views with checkouts in non-mounted VOBs. Fix: The server no longer returns checkouts in umounted VOBs to clients, which allows the dialog to display without issue. PM67670 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer does not provide any means to copy a label name as text from the Version Tree. Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer now provides the user the ability to select a label name from the version tree, right click and copy the label's name. PM67890 Problem: CTE should show model checkouts in a model-friendly way and allow navigation from a checked out file to them model element in the Project Explorer. Fix: Support for this feature available in Rational ClearTeam Explorer v 8.0.0.4. PM67970 Problem: The install code for Rational ClearCase was not detecting correctly the solaris x86 platform. Thus the file delayed_export was not created Fix: Corrected the checking for solaris x86 systems, the file is now correctly installed. PM68273 Problem: AIX ClearCase WAN Server mishandles cached credentials when authenticating with LAM on AIX Fix: This AIX authentication problem has been fixed. PM68415 Problem: Refactoring not working in the Modelling perspective Fix: Fixes a problem in CTE where refactoring was not working in the Modelling perspective because the Checkout dialog was inaccessible. PM68416 Problem: Resource->Refresh does not work for logical resources in the Details view Fix: Fixes a problem in CTE where Resource->Refresh in the Details view does not work for logical resources PM68431 Problem: Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer does not show the size of both controlled and view private file elements in the ClearTeam details view in the size column Fix: The Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer code has been modified to correctly display the size of controlled and view private file elements in the ClearTeam Details view PM68514 Problem: Performing a WorkOn action on a ClearQuest Record from a ClearQuest Eclipse client on Solaris results in an error and the action is not completed. Fix: Fixes a problem on Solaris where performing a WorkOn action on a ClearQuest Record from a ClearQuest Eclipse client would result in an error. PM69506 Problem: GSkit V8 links are broken when installing ClearQuest or ClearCase on Linux x86 after doing the following: (1) Install the latest version of GSkit V8, (2) Install ClearCase or ClearQuest and (3) Configure SSL with LDAP for CQWeb. Trying to access CQWeb using valid LDAP credentials will fail due to the broken links. Fix: The GSkit V8 links are now integrated correctly in the Linux x86 ClearCase and ClearQuest Install Manager. LDAP CQWeb users will no longer see failures. PM70037 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer throws a NullPointerException during decoration. Fix: Fixed a ClearTeam Explorer problem that can result in a NullPointerException during decoration PM70472 Problem: Non-global zone installations of ClearCase with MVFS installed prevent global zone from being upgraded Fix: Starting updates from 7.1.2.8 and 8.0.0.4 IBM Rational ClearCase on Global Zones where IBM Rational ClearCase is Also installed in the non-global zones will succeed since the verification of the scenario has been changed to support it. PM70580 Problem: When a rebase backward/sideways is done for a rootless component it causes the removal of a Foundation hyperlink. The Foundation hyperlink is always FROM a baseline TO the "timeline". There is a reference to the hyperlink in the "Activity timeline" string of the timeline object, which gets removed when the timeline gets removed. However, when the baseline and the timeline exist in different UCM project VOBs, then while an oplog entry is generated for both project VOBs, the processing to remove the entry from the "Activity timeline" string of the timeline object does not occur when the oplog entries are replayed. Fix: After the fix when a rebase backward/sideways is done , the existing Foundation hyperlink is not deleted. PM71611 Problem: When using dynamic views, the ClearTeam Explorer intermittently performs UI blocking operations in the IDE workspace, that causes the user to wait. Fix: Addresses an optimization issue in the ClearTeam Explorer and enables better performance when interacting with ClearCase. PM71680 Problem: ClearCase MultiSite syncreplica imports fail between VOB servers running ClearCase 7.1.2.x and ClearCase 8.0.0.x for replicas in a Feature Level 6 VOB family, because of packet header mismatch in ClearCase 8.0.0.x. Fix: This change restores the ability to correctly generate and read syncreplica packets in Feature Level 6 replicas in ClearCase 8.0.0.x. PM71693 Problem: The ClearTeam Explorer display contributors in the incorrect order why using Model compare Fix: Fixes an issue in the ClearTeam Explorer where compare contributors are not displayed in the correct order when using Model compare.
