Fix Pack 5 (8.0.1.5)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PI22822 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearCase remote dynamic and remote NFS4 view storage, customers would see EPERM errors on checkout.

Fix: The problem was caused by an extra open attempt being sent to the NFS4 server. The cleartext file creation was modified to prevent that condition.

PI22258 Problem: When integrating IBM Rational ClearCase Unified Change Management (UCM) with IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) via the Change Management Integration, multiple UCM activities cannot be associated with a single RTC Work Item.

Fix: The Change Management Integration (CMI) will now allow multiple activities on the same stream to be associated with an RTC Work Item or ClearQuest record.

PI20520 Problem: IBM Rational CCRC Server and CCRC clients with locale (LANG) set to non-ASCII on both (e.g: EN_US.UTF-8 or EN_GB.GB18030) generate an error.

Fix: The fix resolves the encoding issue on the CCRC WAN server side and it is transparent to customers (there is no additional effort required by customers).

PI19793 Problem: Users of  ClearCase views exported from a Linux system may see an error when mounting or accessing the view using NFS4, due to a problem with the Linux NFS4 implementation.

Fix: ClearCase has been modified to return certain values in the attribute information for exported directories in a way which is consistent with what is expected by the Linux NFS4 implementation.

PI18840 Problem: When IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer users disconnect from the IBM Rational CCRC WAN Server, the corresponding user session is not terminated on the server.

Fix: Disconnecting from a CCRC WAN Server in ClearTeam Explorer will now terminate the user session on the server in under five minutes.

PI11015 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer rcleartool, nested version selection rules and comments in webview config spec do not work.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer rcleartool has been fixed to properly read/use nested version selection rules. Comments in web view config spec are not supported.

PI08075 Problem: When working in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view, privileged users were not able to remove the read-only attribute from view-private files they did  not own.

Fix: A repair tool is available which can be used by a privileged user to remove the read-only attribute from view-private files.  Please contact IBM Rational Customer Support for more information.

PM86857 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase users may encounter STOP errors when building using dynamic views on Microsoft Windows(R) platforms

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified to prevent STOP errors while building.

PM86765 Problem: Rational ClearCase / Visual Studio 2012 integration freezes on 'Add as link' operation.

Fix: 'Add as link' operation no longer causes Visual Studio to freeze.

PM78205 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer dose not display merge arrows if you start with partial version tree, then double click on the ... box/branch to expand to full version tree.

Fix:ClearTeam Explorer has been fixed to show merge arrows in a partial version tree.

PM17288 Problem: When using Rational ClearCase MVFS and renaming a file or directory through a view-extended name to a name in the viewroot, AIX may panic, even for an unprivileged user.  For instance, doing "mv /view/test-view/var /view/var" will cause a panic.

Fix: ClearCase MVFS was fixed to avoid the panic in these rename situations.

PM16366 Problem: Customers using Rational ClearCase dynamic views may have their builds interrupted with an error about not being able to write to a given file. The ClearCase MVFS driver was incorrectly handling an error condition when trying to lock user buffer memory pages.

Fix: ClearCase MVFS now forwards the new request to the storage file system without locking the user buffer. The underlying file system will take the necessary steps  as it would do without having MVFS installed.

PI15615 Problem: ClearCase does not properly fail a checkin when an RPC times out trying to communicate with ClearCase remote server.

Fix: Error processing has been corrected in ClearCase versions 8.0.0.5 and 8.0.1 12.

PI15411 Problem: Rational ClearCase rcleartool -graphical fails if the full ClearCase client is not installed.

Fix: Rational ClearCase rcleartool -graphical now use the ClearCase native diff/merge tools which are part of the Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) package.

PI14691 Problem: Saving a file from the Rational ClearTeam Explorer version tree using the "save as" function adds null characters to the file.  This is reproducible from both a web and dynamic view.

Fix: The "save as" function has been corrected.

PI14640 Problem: Users of Rational ClearCase MVFS may see corrupted files containing zeros if the use of the cache manager is turned on. The issue is caused because the view server may send stale information about the file size and makes the file smaller than it actually is in the cache. Later MVFS updates the file size to the correct value, but the file data has already been lost.

Fix: Rational ClearCase MVFS now ignores file size updates for files opened for write if the use of the cache manager is turned on. This prevents the file size to be updated with stale information preserving its data on the local cache.

PI14606 Problem: Using the Rational ClearCase-Cadence integration, there are times when a user may select a Cadence object in the Hierarchy Manager, or the ClearCase Work Area Manager (WAM), and select a ClearCase operation (e.g. Label, checkout, and others) and the resulting dialog box may not show any items that were selected.  The user would then not be able to perform the desired operation.

Fix: The ClearCase-Cadence integration has been changed to properly address this situation and the objects selected in the WAM or the Hierarchy Manager will now be properly displayed in the desired operation dialog box.

PI14582 Problem::Using URLs that contain non-ASCII characters with the OSLC-based Rational UCM/CQ Integration (SQUID) or the Rational Change Management Integration (CMI) causes the integrations to malfunction.

Fix: URLs that contain non-ASCII characters are now properly encoded.

PI14475 Problem: Using URLs that contain non-ASCII characters with the OSLC-based Rational UCM/CQ Integration (SQUID) or the Rational Change Management Integration (CMI) causes the integrations to malfunction.

Fix: URLs that contain non-ASCII characters are now properly encoded.

PI12880 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearCase views with a large cache (e.g.32MB) the view_server process may become 100% busy when 'cleartool setcs -current' is run, if the views object cache is 100% full.

Fix: Performance was improved for cache full situations.

PI12750 Problem: When working in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Cadence integration, it is not showing the correct title bar of the Editor windows with the correct Library/Cell/Cellview/Version information, when descending into the design hierarchy.

Fix: Title bar of the cellview editor will now be appropriately updated with the title of the sub block when opened in the same tab.

PI12579 Problem: When you are working in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Sybase PowerBuilder integration, you may see the following error when adding files to source control: "Error loading PowerBuilder Orca library, PBORC15.DLL". The files are added to source control correctly and there seems to be no impact due to the error.  You can clear the error by selecting the OK button.

Fix: The "Version Libraries" option is no longer available in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Sybase PowerBuilder integration after version 8.  Please read  (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21258623&rcss=se).

PI12482 Problem: In Rational ClearTeam Explorer, the user is unable to select a label as a merge source in the Merge Search Wizard if the label is locked.

Fix: In Rational ClearTeam Explorer, the user is unable to select a label as a merge source in the Merge Search Wizard if the label is locked.

PI12302 Problem: If you are logged in with a user name that contains a space, you may see the following error: "Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine" when comparing UTF8* or UTF16* files when you are are working in IBM Rational ClearCase Explorer or another native graphical user interface (GUI), such as the version tree browser. You may also see the same error when running cleartool diff -g -pred utf8filename.xxx.

Fix: User names are now enclosed in quotes to be able to handle user names containing spaces.

PI11635 Problem: Users of IBM Rational ClearCase on Linux could periodically see checked-out and view-private files having all their file size set to 0 and the creation date set to January 1, 1970.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase on Linux will now return the correct file information in all cases.

PI10990 Problem: In the System Requirements for IBM Rational ClearCase 8.x, it states that Sybase PowerBuilder is supported for use with the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC).

Fix: System Requirements for the IBM Rational ClearCase 8.x / Sybase PowerBuilder integration have been corrected.

PI10723 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer fails to show any stream views if the list includes views with missing view tags.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer now displays valid stream views and skips the views that are missing view tags in the ClearCase registry.

PI05069 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase fails to remove remote views using a Microsoft Windows 8 client and a Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 server.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase rmview has been fixed.

Fix: URLs that contain non-ASCII characters are now properly encoded.

PI14475 Problem: Rational CM API CcProvider.doLogout() was not correctly clearing cached data which was causing incorrect authentication information to be re-used in subsequent logins in the same process.

Fix: Rational CM API CcProvider.doLogout()  now correctly clears cached data.

PI14065 Problem: When a Rational ClearCase VOB root directory element is protected so a user cannot read the directory, ClearCase could intermittently fail on "ls -l" and similar commands that attempt to access the metadata of the VOB root.

Fix: ClearCase is fixed so all users can get metadata on the VOB root directory.  Permission to read the contents of the directory are still properly enforced.

PI12880 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearCase views with a large cache (e.g.32MB) the view_server process may become 100% busy when 'cleartool setcs -current' is run, if the views object cache is 100% full.

PI05830 Problem: Rational ClearCase CLMUTIL utility cannot remove task links to objects which no longer exist.

Fix: CLMUTIL utility is now able to remove the task links.

PI04959 Problem: ClearCase native diff tool fails to run when invoked from ClearTeam Explorer on Windows.  The native tool is invoked from Java using Runtime.exec(). The problem appears to be due to changes in Java such that Runtime.exec() will not correctly parse a single command string when the main command has spaces without embedded quote marks.

Fix: The code has been changed to use the deprecated ProcessBuilder calls.  This will prevent problems when paths with spaces are used.


Fix Pack 2 (8.0.1.2)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PI04987 Problem: On some Unix and Linux platforms, IBM Rational ClearCase installed incorrect symlinks for ccase-home-dir/etc/rsh and ccase-home-dir/etc/abe_starter, which prevented distributed clearmake builds from starting properly.

Fix: The symlinks for rsh and abe_starter are handled correctly by the installation code, and will be maintained correctly across upgrades as well.

PM99780 Problem: The "cleartool mkbl -clone" command in IBM Rational ClearCase may fail with a core dump. Similarly, the IBM Rational MultiSitemultitool synch import operation may fail on replay of a mkbl -clone command.

Fix: The cleartool mkbl -clone and the replay of mkbl -clone by multitool synch will no longer crash on a memory overflow condition.

PM99612 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client may fail with a Null Pointer Exception when field names contain multibyte characters.

Fix: Multibyte characters in field names will no longer cause an exception.

PM99453 Problem: Under certain circumstances, a distributed build in IBM Rational ClearCase may incorrectly invalidate the MultiVersion Filesystem cache when building on the local host, which can cause a small performance degradation during builds.

Fix: The distributed build will now correctly determine if the build is done on the local host and not invalidate the cache.

PM99221 .Problem: The IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSA-RTE) may display a model's members in the checkouts view incorrectly after a model mutation.

Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer / RSA-RTE integration will now correctly display a model's members after a model mutation.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now provides sufficient information about versions being fetched for merge.

PM98666 Problem:In the Change Management Integration for UCM, cleartool setactivity and cleartool mkactivity can fail with a segmentation fault if the stream's Change Management Integration configuration is missing the "validate" keyword.

Fix: The Integration will now use the default value for "validate" if the Admin has not explicitly configured it on the stream.

Problem: During some merges done using the IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge, unnecessary branches are created, due to the lack of support for an option to undo backwards merges.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now supports a flag to undo backwards merges to avoid creating unnecessary branches.

PM98277 Problem: The problem is caused by two ClearCase dialogs, one open and one about to open, running simultaneously.  This does not normally occur, unless: 1) The .settings folder and it's content does not exist in the project. 2) The user has more than one transformation config and changes which is the default. 3) The user *quickly* attempts to refactor a model object after changing the default transformation configuration.

Fix: The ClearCase dialogs have listeners for change events within the dialogs and the add to source listener fires when the checkout dialog is about to open due to the refactor operation.  The listeners now filter on the event source so that the listeners will only respond to the correct event source.

PM97900 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge exits prematurely, before all the extraneous checkouts performed during the merge are undone.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now waits for all the extraneous checkouts to be undone before completing the merge command.

PM97784 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer had not been updated to support the latest improvements to the CLI Closure Merge feature of the IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE).

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer now fully supports the latest improvements to RSARTE CLI Closure Merge

PM97194 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE), there is no Checkin option in the right click menu of CTE Checkouts view if model root directory is chosen.

Fix: The context menu in the ClearTeam Explorer Checkouts view is now the same regardless of the selection in the view, and includes the Checkin option.

PM97192 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer, if you rename the file of a logical model fragment while there is an open checkouts view, and then attempt to check in the model, the checkin will attempt to check in the old name because CTE's internal model did not get updated for the rename.

Fix: On certain refactor operations on logical models, the CTE move/delete operations now correctly update the CTE internal model so that checkin will function correctly.

PM97072 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer, the lack of a Show Checkouts action on the ClearCase toolbar makes it difficult for the user to open the Checkouts view.

Fix: The main toolbar in ClearTeam Explorer now includes the Show Checkouts action to allow the user to quickly open the Checkouts view.

PM96863 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge unnecessarily fetches all the active dynamic views on startup, causing delay in performing the merge.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge no longer fetches all the active dynamic views on startup which allows the merge operation to commence quickly.

PM95985 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest OSLC integration will generate an error to the user for view tags or stream names longer than 50 characters for entry into ClearQuest records.

Fix: The ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest OSLC integration truncates view tags and stream names when they are longer than 50 characters.

PM95898 Problem: Wildcard specifications in Rational ClearCase lsview may incorrectly report "no matching entries".

Fix: Wildcard specifications in Rational ClearCase lsview no longer report the error message when views exists and match the wildcard pattern.

PM95740 Problem: Processes could hang if they attempted to access a file in the IBM Rational ClearCase Multi-Version File System that was in the process of being deleted.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified to eliminate a race condition so that processes will not hang while accessing files that are in the process of being deleted.

PM95273 Problem: If you have the Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 with Microsoft Team Explorer for Visual Studio 2012 plugin and IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client plugin installed, devenv.exe will crash when you are saving a Microsoft Team Foundation Server work item.

Fix:Visual Studio crash during a Team Foundation Server workitem save  had been resolved.

PM94448 Problem: When attempting to use the rcleartool portion of the ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer plugin for Eclipse, the setup will fail because it is unable to locate the launcher script.

Fix: Rcleartool script now configures correctly for the first time use in Clear Team Explorer Eclipse Plugin.

PM91211 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase integration with Microsoft Visual Studio(R) 2012 may show performance degradation as compared with previous versions of Microsoft Visual Studio. This performance degradation can be seen when using MultiVersion File System (MVFS) dynamic views, when scrolling through the items in the solution explorer when the solution is very large, or when displaying files in a large directory.

Fix: A performance problem in operations within large directories in the IBM Rational ClearCase integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 has been fixed.

PM90880 Problem: When stopping IBM Rational ClearCase services on an HP-UX system which had been running a substantial load, it was possible to receive errors unmounting some VOBs, and that in turn prevented successful unmount of the viewroot.

Fix: Changes were made in the ClearCase Multi Version File System (MVFS) file inactivation code to correctly release all resources on the last close of a file which had been opened by multiple processes.

PM90878 Problem: Large multiprocessor build servers running HP-UX 11.31 would experience sporadic system crashes during periods of high activity.

Fix: Locking around the vnode reference count in the IBM Rational ClearCase Multi Version File System (MVFS)  was corrected, to prevent race conditions between threads deactivating and reactivating the same file object.

PM90373 Problem: When running the IBM Rational ClearCase Multisite command "multitool lsepoch" from the command line with multiple replicas given as options, the command will abort if it encounters a failure contacting one of the replicas. It then does not continue processing the command and so does not attempt to access the subsequent replicas.

Fix: The command now continues processing and attempts to access the subsequent replicas.

PM90370 Problem: When running IBM Rational ClearCase Multisite command "multitool lsepoch -actual replica1 replica2 ...", if replica1 has not yet been imported on the remote site or the replica hostname is incorrect, then the command should produce an error of the type "unable to retrieve epoch row for remote replica". At this time there is no error or message indicating any issues with replica1 as long at there is connectivity to the remote site and the VOB server host exists.

Fix: If replica1 has not yet been imported on the remote site or the replica hostname is incorrect, then the command now produces an error.

PM90176 Problem: In the ClearCase Information Center step 6 of the instructions for moving a VOB within a domain is incorrect, the target host is specified in a command where the source host is required.

Fix: The incorrect hostname in the example has been fixed.

Fix: The MVFS filesystem has been updated to be compatible with the filter drivers in Symantec 12.1.x.

PM88248 Problem: In the Rational ClearCase integration with Cadence Design Framework II, attempting to apply a label for which the ClearCase label type was not defined would generate an error, rather than creating the label type.

Fix: The integration now properly creates the ClearCase label type correctly in the appropriate VOB(s).

PM88109 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest integration actions that delete a ClearQuest record (e.g. trivial rebase) fail on AIX.

Fix: ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest integration actions that delete a ClearQuest record now succeed on AIX.

PM87962 Problem: If Microsoft Security Client is installed on an IBM Rational ClearCase client system, running an executable which was winked in during the build process can cause a Windows STOP error.

Fix: The ClearCase Multi Version File System (MVFS) has been modified to be compatible with Microsoft Security Client.

PM87725 Problem: The ClearCase Infocenter lists the wrong default value for the CCASE_ABE_PN environment variable.

Fix: The default paths for CCASE_ABE_PN and CLEARCASE_ABE_PN have been corrected for Unix, Linux, and Windows.

PM87538 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) may not show the current checkout comments for a checked-out version.  Modifications made by CTE to checkout comments through a property sheet are lost when the version is checked in.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) has been fixed to correctly display and modify comments on checked-out versions.

PM85153 Problem: When applying a label in am IBM Rational ClearCase view, you may find that not all labels are applied or that some elements report errors but the labels have been applied.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified so that labels will now be applied properly.

PM84238 Problem: A Micorosoft Windows(R) system running IBM Rational ClearCase and Symantec Endpoint Protection can encounter a system panic when moving a file from a local disk into a dynamic view.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified so that Symantic Endpoint Protection will no longer cause a system panic moving files into a dynamic view.

PM83938 Problem: Under fmt_ccase command reference page, the %[label_status]p format mention only 3 status: full, incremental, or unlabeled. There are two other status values missing: No Versions to Label, Initially Labeled

Fix: The missing status values have been added to the reference page.

PM79463 Problem: During the apply label operation in ClearTeam Explorer, a comment that is intended to be attached to the label event, is incorrectly being applied to the labelled version itself.  This can also result in an incorrect error message being shown to the user.       

Fix: The handling of label event comments in CleartTeam Explorer has been fixed and no error message will be shown.

PM77345 Problem: When the view storage path for an IBM Rational ClearCase view on UNIX or Linux approached 255 characters, some operations such as checkout could fail, even though the user-visible view tag and VOB tag are short enough for fully qualified pathnames to be within supported limits.

Fix: ClearCase will now successfully handle view storage path names that are longer than 255 characters.

PM76839 Problem: Setting the Registry Key MvfsViewAttachMup can cause IBM Rational ClearCase users to receive permission denied errors when using robocopy.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified so that the MvfsViewAttachMup is no longer needed and robocopy now works correctly.

PM75360 Problem: The Perl stat() function performs slowly when accessing files in remote dynamic views under IBM Rational ClearCase.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified so that the stat() function in perl will perform better.

PM73548 Problem: When both ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath and ccrcUserRegionMapFile are explicitly specified in the server.conf configuration file of the IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.x WAN Server, the WAN server is unable to locate the region map even though the path is set correctly.

Fix: The ClearCase WAN server has been fixed to correctly parse the configuration options.

PM65457 Problem: Rational ClearCase documentation about how the CLEARCASE_MKELEM_USE_GRPLIST environment variable functions for the mkdir command is incorrect.

Fix: The documentation of the CLEARCASE_MKELEM_USE_GRPLIST environment variable has been corrected with regard to the way a new element's group is determined.

PM49774 Problem: Messages from the IBM Rational ClearCase CM API are printed to the console rather than to a log file.

Fix: CM API has been changed to write messages to a log file, rather than to the developer's console.

PM49773 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer should print all logging information to the Eclipse log, but it is being displayed on the console.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer will now print exceptions and log information to the Eclipse workspace log.

PM87942 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase cleartool describe -aliases may not properly list all of the visible aliases of a clearcase hard link if one of the links is in a directory that is not visible in the current view.

Fix: cleartool describe -aliases now properly lists all visible aliases of a hard link.

PM48668 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer may hang intermittently when many views are started.

Fix: Fixed a problem where the ClearTeam Explorer hangs when many views are started.

PM35859 Problem: A system panic could occur on Microsoft Windows(R) 7 systems running java under IBM Rational Clearcase.

Fix: Fixed a problem where the ClearTeam Explorer hangs when many views are started.

PM26284 Problem: The "config_spec" page of the IBM Rational ClearCase reference manual incorrectly states that the view server recompiles a config spec at startup. This causes confusion when time rules specifty nonabsolute values (e.g., "today").

Fix: The config_spec reference page for has been corrected and includes advice to run  cleartool setcs -current.

PM18831 Problem: When you execute a program that is stored as a view private file in a dynamic view in IBM Rational ClearCase on Microsoft Windows(R) 7 the task manager may list the name of the program as the name of the cleartext file in the view storage directory and not the name of the executable.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase will now cause the task manager to display the name of an executable file properly.

PM18005 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase builds on Microsoft Windows(R) XP systems will not always list executable programs created as derived objects in the audit files for subsequent steps in the build.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase will now list executable files created as derived objects in audit files.

PM94093 Problem: When running the IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) bridge connection to IBM Rational ClearCase and using the Microsoft Visual Studio integration pressing the "ClearCase Explorer" button in visual studio results in IBM Rational ClearTeamExplorer (CTE) being launched instead of the expected Rational Team Concert (RTC) explorer.

Fix: The Visual Studio integration with ClearCase has been modified so that when the IBM Rational Team Concert bridge connection is being used, pressing the "ClearCase Explorer" button will launch the Rational Team Concert explorer.

PM94071 Problem: The command supplied in the IBM Rational ClearCase Information Center to migrate the CM Server MBEANs to CCRC WAN Server is incorrect.

Fix: In the ClearCase 8.0.1 Information Center,  the  "Migrating from Change Management (CM) Server to CCRC WAN Server" topic has been updated to include the correct command for backing up the CM Server configuration for ClearCase V7.1.x releases.

PM93875 Problem: A Rational ClearCase VOB database server may run out of file descriptors after multiple down-revision clients attempt to access a VOB that does not accept old clients. The database log file may have errors such as: Error: Process not running on registry specified hostname or other errors resulting from running out of file descriptors.

Fix: The VOB database code now closes database files after rejecting connections from old client software, so that it will not run out of file descriptors

PM93856 Problem: Logical Model Merge in ClearTeam Explorer makes extraneous checkouts during merge making results hard to understand

Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearTeam Explorer so that Logical Model Merge operations no longer makes extraneous checkouts.

PM93334 Problem: In ClearTeam Explorer, the find checkout operation can take a considerable amount of time and there is no way to cancel the operation.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified to provide a mechanism to cancel find checkout operations and to improve the performance of painting the checkout table.

PM93012 Problem: When performing a Logical Model Merge in ClearTeam Explorer, a remotely renamed model fragment appears as a view-private file after the merge completes.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified so that remotely renamed model fragments are properly checked in during the completion of a directory merge.

PM92791 Problem: IBM ClearCase will generate an error message in the form "Unknown host '27000@licenseserver" if it cannot contact a remote view server process and Rational Common Licensing or FlexLM licensing is being used.

Fix: IBM ClearCase has been modified so that it will no longer generate this error message.

PM92769 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer Logical Model Merge incorrectly identifies contributor versions when changes are made to fragments only with no changes to the model file

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified so that it will now corrrectly  identifiy contributor versions when performing Logical Model Merges.

PM92249 Problem: When merging IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE) models that have more than 100 fragments the performance seen in Logical Model Merge (CLILMM) from the command line is very bad.

Fix: Fixes a problem with ClearTeam Explorer where Logical Model Merge takes a long time when the model has a large number of fragments (more than 100).

PM91851 Problem: When the user performs a logical model merge from a view and the model has checkouts in the source view, Rational ClearTeam Explorer displays too many error messages about this unsupported use case.

Fix: Fixes a problem in ClearTeam Explorer,  where multiple error messages are displayed when the user tries to perform a logical model merge from a view and the model has checkouts in that view.

PM91781 Problem: During a Rational ClearTeam Explorer merge on checkin, the user may get the following error: "Objects being compared or merged must be versions of the same element" if any of the folders containing the file being checkin is a symbolic link.

PM91398 Problem: Rational ClearTeam Explorer  "Advanced Deliver Preview" sheet, when delivering by baseline is selected, it is possible for the user-input option to have an enabled "Ok" button which allows the deliver to be attempted without any actual user input into the text area.

Fix: Steps now taken to a) disallow the Ok button to be enabled for empty user input text area, and b) ensure correct enable state for the Ok button when switching between tabs on the baseline-deliver sheet of the Deliver Preview Dialog.

PM90882 Problem: In IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.1, a user will receive the following error when running 'cleartool lsco -cview -avobs' for any mounted VOB whose VOB root directory element is unreadable to the user, even if that VOB has no checkouts: lsco: cleartool: Error: Unable to determine view for " ": Permission denied

Fix: cleartool will not emit an error for a VOB with an unreadable VOB root directory element, if that VOB has no checkouts in the view. If there are checkouts in such a VOB in the view, they will be listed with a notation that no pathname can be found for the checkout. Any VOB that cannot be opened by the user (for example, the VOB enforces ACLs and the VOB ACL does not permit the user to open the VOB) will result in an error message, whether or not there are checkouts in the VOB (the user without access does not have permission to determine the presence of checkouts).

PM90756 Problem: "Encountered an improper argument" error on invocation of Rational ClearCase Version Tree of a file.  Same error is seen when the file is accessed from Rational ClearCase Explorer.

Fix: The "Encountered an improper argument" error condition has been resolved.

PM90635 Problem: When certain ClearCase properties (such as a config spec) are changed, some of the ClearCase properties such as "config spec rule", never update when viewed in the ClearCase properties sheet.

Fix: Some of the ClearCase properties for a versioned file or folder were being retrieved from a cached location so that the property sheet would never show any change.  This has been remedied.

PM89935 Problem: Rational ClearCase omake -L does not properly handle rebuilds of the entire dependency tree.

Fix: A fix to omake resolves this issue and now the entire dependency tree is rebuilt properly.

PM89867 Problem: If multiple Rational ClearCase users missed entering the "BASE NAME" in edit baseline dependency, blank baselines are getting created.

Fix: Baseline Dependency Editor now checks for empty pathname when no template is used and prompts for a pathname.

PM89632 Problem: In ClearCase, the cleartool rmview -uuid command could fail to remove view records from a VOB when multiple VOBs on the same server host are owned by different accounts.

Fix: In ClearCase, the cleartool rmview -uuid command now works properly when removing view records from a VOB even when multiple VOBs on the same server host are owned by different accounts

PM86099 Problem: When browsing ClearQuest records from within CCRC on a Korean locale, CQ UCM field labels have a slighter larger font size.  This sometimes leads to truncation of some label names.

Fix: On Korean locales, ClearQuest field labels now have uniform font sizes when viewed from within CCRC.

PM85271 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer is not displaying a Merge arrow in the ClearCase version tree after a merge using the vtree context menu merge action.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified to properly display Merge arrows after a merge.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified to properly handle the renaming and refactoring of Rational Software Architect model fragments.

PM84917 Problem: Rational ClearCase db.conf '-deadman' value is only upward tunable.

Fix: The -deadman option only took values of 1 minute and higher. The solution was to allow any positive value.

PM82644 Problem: When you are running a build in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view, you may experience a STOP Error, system crash, or BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).

Fix: The Multi Version File System(MVFS) in ClearCase was modified so that these errors no longer occur.

PM81644 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer  login fails when password has a ":" in it.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer will now properly handle logins when the password contains a ":".

PM72109 Problem: Using a keybinding shortcut for version tree or history in ClearTeam Explorer produces an empty view.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified to provide keybindings for the commands in the ClearCase category  found in Windows->Preferences->General->Keys.

PM37696 Problem: The number of connections to the IBM Information Center exceeded the number permitted for concurrent printing of topics.

Fix: Users can now print content from the Information Center.

IC85479 Problem: Rational ClearCase Infocenter documentation does not warn about backing up and restoring the albd.conf when upgrading to ClearCase 8.x

Fix: In the ClearCase 8.0 and 8.0.1 Information Centers, the upgrade instructions in the "Backing up your environment resources" topic have been revised.

Fix:ClearTeam Explorer has been fixed to show merge arrows in a partial version tree.

PM17288 Problem: When using Rational ClearCase MVFS and renaming a file or directory through a view-extended name to a name in the viewroot, AIX may panic, even for an unprivileged user.  For instance, doing "mv /view/test-view/var /view/var" will cause a panic.

Fix: ClearCase MVFS was fixed to avoid the panic in these rename situations.

PM16366 Problem: Customers using Rational ClearCase dynamic views may have their builds interrupted with an error about not being able to write to a given file. The ClearCase MVFS driver was incorrectly handling an error condition when trying to lock user buffer memory pages.

Fix: ClearCase MVFS now forwards the new request to the storage file system without locking the user buffer. The underlying file system will take the necessary steps  as it would do without having MVFS installed.

PI15615 Problem: ClearCase does not properly fail a checkin when an RPC times out trying to communicate with ClearCase remote server.

Fix: Error processing has been corrected in ClearCase versions 8.0.0.5 and 8.0.1 12.

PI15411 Problem: Rational ClearCase rcleartool -graphical fails if the full ClearCase client is not installed.

Fix: Rational ClearCase rcleartool -graphical now use the ClearCase native diff/merge tools which are part of the Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) package.

PI14691 Problem: Saving a file from the Rational ClearTeam Explorer version tree using the "save as" function adds null characters to the file.  This is reproducible from both a web and dynamic view.

Fix: The "save as" function has been corrected.

PI14640 Problem: Users of Rational ClearCase MVFS may see corrupted files containing zeros if the use of the cache manager is turned on. The issue is caused because the view server may send stale information about the file size and makes the file smaller than it actually is in the cache. Later MVFS updates the file size to the correct value, but the file data has already been lost.

Fix: Rational ClearCase MVFS now ignores file size updates for files opened for write if the use of the cache manager is turned on. This prevents the file size to be updated with stale information preserving its data on the local cache.

PI14606 Problem: Using the Rational ClearCase-Cadence integration, there are times when a user may select a Cadence object in the Hierarchy Manager, or the ClearCase Work Area Manager (WAM), and select a ClearCase operation (e.g. Label, checkout, and others) and the resulting dialog box may not show any items that were selected.  The user would then not be able to perform the desired operation.

Fix: The ClearCase-Cadence integration has been changed to properly address this situation and the objects selected in the WAM or the Hierarchy Manager will now be properly displayed in the desired operation dialog box.

PI14582 Problem: Using URLs that contain non-ASCII characters with the OSLC-based Rational UCM/CQ Integration (SQUID) or the Rational Change Management Integration (CMI) causes the integrations to malfunction.

Fix: URLs that contain non-ASCII characters are now properly encoded.

PI14475 Problem: Rational CM API CcProvider.doLogout() was not correctly clearing cached data which was causing incorrect authentication information to be re-used in subsequent logins in the same process.

Fix: Cache is now properly cleared on subsequent logins.

PI12880 Problem:When using IBM Rational ClearCase views with a large cache (e.g.32MB) the view_server process may become 100% busy when 'cleartool setcs -current' is run, if the views object cache is 100% full.

Fix: Cache is now properly cleared on subsequent logins.

PI12750 Problem: When working in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Cadence integration, it is not showing the correct title bar of the Editor windows with the correct Library/Cell/Cellview/Version information, when descending into the design hierarchy.

Fix: Title bar of the cellview editor will now be appropriately updated with the title of the sub block when opened in the same tab.

PI12579 Problem: When you are working in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Sybase PowerBuilder integration, you may see the following error when adding files to source control: "Error loading PowerBuilder Orca library, PBORC15.DLL". The files are added to source control correctly and there seems to be no impact due to the error.  You can clear the error by selecting the OK button.

Fix: The "Version Libraries" option is no longer available in the IBM Rational ClearCase/Sybase PowerBuilder integration after version 8.  Please read  (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21258623&rcss=se).

PI12482 Problem: In Rational ClearTeam Explorer, the user is unable to select a label as a merge source in the Merge Search Wizard if the label is locked.

Fix: In Rational ClearTeam Explorer, the user is unable to select a label as a merge source in the Merge Search Wizard if the label is locked.

PI12302 Problem: If you are logged in with a user name that contains a space, you may see the following error: "Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine" when comparing UTF8* or UTF16* files when you are are working in IBM Rational ClearCase Explorer or another native graphical user interface (GUI), such as the version tree browser. You may also see the same error when running cleartool diff -g -pred utf8filename.xxx.

Fix: User names are now enclosed in quotes to be able to handle user names containing spaces.

PI11635 Problem: Users of IBM Rational ClearCase on Linux could periodically see checked-out and view-private files having all their file size set to 0 and the creation date set to January 1, 1970.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase on Linux will now return the correct file information in all cases.

PI10990 Problem: In the System Requirements for IBM Rational ClearCase 8.x, it states that Sybase PowerBuilder is supported for use with the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC).

Fix: System Requirements for the IBM Rational ClearCase 8.x / Sybase PowerBuilder integration have been corrected.

PI10723 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer fails to show any stream views if the list includes views with missing view tags.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer now displays valid stream views and skips the views that are missing view tags in the ClearCase registry.

PI05069 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase fails to remove remote views using a Microsoft Windows 8 client and a Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 server.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase rmview has been fixed.

Fix: URLs that contain non-ASCII characters are now properly encoded.

PI14475 Problem: Rational CM API CcProvider.doLogout() was not correctly clearing cached data which was causing incorrect authentication information to be re-used in subsequent logins in the same process.

Fix: Rational CM API CcProvider.doLogout()  now correctly clears cached data.

PI12880 Problem: When using IBM Rational ClearCase views with a large cache (e.g.32MB) the view_server process may become 100% busy when 'cleartool setcs -current' is run, if the views object cache is 100% full.

Fix: Performance was improved for cache full situations.

Fix: CLMUTIL utility is now able to remove the task links.

PI04959 Problem: ClearCase native diff tool fails to run when invoked from ClearTeam Explorer on Windows.  The native tool is invoked from Java using Runtime.exec(). The problem appears to be due to changes in Java such that Runtime.exec() will not correctly parse a single command string when the main command has spaces without embedded quote marks.

Fix: The code has been changed to use the deprecated ProcessBuilder calls.  This will prevent problems when paths with spaces are used.


Fix Pack 9 (8.0.0.9)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PI04987 Problem: On some Unix and Linux platforms, IBM Rational ClearCase installed incorrect symlinks for ccase-home-dir/etc/rsh and ccase-home-dir/etc/abe_starter, which prevented distributed clearmake builds from starting properly.

Fix: The symlinks for rsh and abe_starter are handled correctly by the installation code, and will be maintained correctly across upgrades as well.

PM99780 Problem: The "cleartool mkbl -clone" command in IBM Rational ClearCase may fail with a core dump. Similarly, the IBM Rational MultiSitemultitool synch import operation may fail on replay of a mkbl -clone command.

Fix: The cleartool mkbl -clone and the replay of mkbl -clone by multitool synch will no longer crash on a memory overflow condition.

PM99612 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client may fail with a Null Pointer Exception when field names contain multibyte characters.

Fix: Multibyte characters in field names will no longer cause an exception.

PM99453 Problem: Under certain circumstances, a distributed build in IBM Rational ClearCase may incorrectly invalidate the MultiVersion Filesystem cache when building on the local host, which can cause a small performance degradation during builds.

Fix: The distributed build will now correctly determine if the build is done on the local host and not invalidate the cache.

PM99221 .Problem: The IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSA-RTE) may display a model's members in the checkouts view incorrectly after a model mutation.

Fix: The ClearTeam Explorer / RSA-RTE integration will now correctly display a model's members after a model mutation.

PM99147 Problem: IBM Rational ClearCase users would encounter occasional system panics during large builds on Microsoft Windows(R) systems

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified to prevent system panics during large builds on Microsoft Windows(R) systems.

PM99099 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Logical Model Merge may undo a checkout with merge results.

Fix: Logical Model Merge has been fixed to  not incorrectly undo checkouts with merge results.

PM99093 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSA-RTE) may not be able to perform a checkin after removing a fragment from a model.

Fix: A check-in can now be performed in after removing a fragment from a model.

PM99090 Problem:The IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge provides insufficient information about versions being fetched for merge,

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now provides sufficient information about versions being fetched for merge.

PM98666 Problem:In the Change Management Integration for UCM, cleartool setactivity and cleartool mkactivity can fail with a segmentation fault if the stream's Change Management Integration configuration is missing the "validate" keyword.

Fix: The Integration will now use the default value for "validate" if the Admin has not explicitly configured it on the stream.

PM98558 Problem: During some merges done using the IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge, unnecessary branches are created, due to the lack of support for an option to undo backwards merges.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now supports a flag to undo backwards merges to avoid creating unnecessary branches.

PM98277 Problem: The problem is caused by two ClearCase dialogs, one open and one about to open, running simultaneously.  This does not normally occur, unless: 1) The .settings folder and it's content does not exist in the project. 2) The user has more than one transformation config and changes which is the default. 3) The user *quickly* attempts to refactor a model object after changing the default transformation configuration.

Fix: The ClearCase dialogs have listeners for change events within the dialogs and the add to source listener fires when the checkout dialog is about to open due to the refactor operation.  The listeners now filter on the event source so that the listeners will only respond to the correct event source.

PM97900 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge exits prematurely, before all the extraneous checkouts performed during the merge are undone.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge now waits for all the extraneous checkouts to be undone before completing the merge command.

PM97895 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer should print all logging information to the Eclipse log, but it is being displayed on the console.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer will now print exceptions and log information to the Eclipse workspace log.

PM92769 Problem: ClearTeam Explorer Logical Model Merge incorrectly identifies contributor versions when changes are made to fragments only with no changes to the model file

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer has been modified so that it will now corrrectly  identifiy contributor versions when performing Logical Model Merges.

PM97784 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer had not been updated to support the latest improvements to the CLI Closure Merge feature of the IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE).

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer now fully supports the latest improvements to RSARTE CLI Closure Merge

PM97194 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE), there is no Checkin option in the right click menu of CTE Checkouts view if model root directory is chosen.

Fix: The context menu in the ClearTeam Explorer Checkouts view is now the same regardless of the selection in the view, and includes the Checkin option.

PM97192 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer, if you rename the file of a logical model fragment while there is an open checkouts view, and then attempt to check in the model, the checkin will attempt to check in the old name because CTE's internal model did not get updated for the rename.

Fix: On certain refactor operations on logical models, the CTE move/delete operations now correctly update the CTE internal model so that checkin will function correctly.

PM97072 Problem: In the IBM Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer, the lack of a Show Checkouts action on the ClearCase toolbar makes it difficult for the user to open the Checkouts view.

Fix: The main toolbar in ClearTeam Explorer now includes the Show Checkouts action to allow the user to quickly open the Checkouts view.

PM96863 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase Command Line Logical Model Merge unnecessarily fetches all the active dynamic views on startup, causing delay in performing the merge.

Fix: Command Line Logical Model Merge no longer fetches all the active dynamic views on startup which allows the merge operation to commence quickly.

PM95985 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest OSLC integration will generate an error to the user for view tags or stream names longer than 50 characters for entry into ClearQuest records.

Fix: The ClearCase UCM/ClearQuest OSLC integration truncates view tags and stream names when they are longer than 50 characters.

PM95898 Problem: Wildcard specifications in Rational ClearCase lsview may incorrectly report "no matching entries".

Fix: Wildcard specifications in Rational ClearCase lsview no longer report the error message when views exists and match the wildcard pattern.

PM95740 Problem: Processes could hang if they attempted to access a file in the IBM Rational ClearCase Multi-Version File System that was in the process of being deleted.

Fix: IBM Rational ClearCase has been modified to eliminate a race condition so that processes will not hang while accessing files that are in the process of being deleted.

PM95273 Problem: If you have the Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 with Microsoft Team Explorer for Visual Studio 2012 plugin and IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client plugin installed, devenv.exe will crash when you are saving a Microsoft Team Foundation Server work item.

Fix:Visual Studio crash during a Team Foundation Server workitem save  had been resolved.

PM94448 Problem: When attempting to use the rcleartool portion of the ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer plugin for Eclipse, the setup will fail because it is unable to locate the launcher script.

Fix: Rcleartool script now configures correctly for the first time use in Clear Team Explorer Eclipse Plugin.

PM91211 Problem: The IBM Rational ClearCase integration with Microsoft Visual Studio(R) 2012 may show performance degradation as compared with previous versions of Microsoft Visual Studio. This performance degradation can be seen when using MultiVersion File System (MVFS) dynamic views, when scrolling through the items in the solution explorer when the solution is very large, or when displaying files in a large directory.

Fix: A performance problem in operations within large directories in the IBM Rational ClearCase integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 has been fixed.

PM90880 Problem: When stopping IBM Rational ClearCase services on an HP-UX system which had been running a substantial load, it was possible to receive errors unmounting some VOBs, and that in turn prevented successful unmount of the viewroot.

Fix: Changes were made in the ClearCase Multi Version File System (MVFS) file inactivation code to correctly release all resources on the last close of a file which had been opened by multiple processes.

PM90878 Problem: Large multiprocessor build servers running HP-UX 11.31 would experience sporadic system crashes during periods of high activity.

Fix: Locking around the vnode reference count in the IBM Rational ClearCase Multi Version File System (MVFS)  was corrected, to prevent race conditions between threads deactivating and reactivating the same file object.

PM90373 Problem: When running the IBM Rational ClearCase Multisite command "multitool lsepoch" from the command line with multiple replicas given as options, the command will abort if it encounters a failure contacting one of the replicas. It then does not continue processing the command and so does not attempt to access the subsequent replicas.

Fix: The command now continues processing and attempts to access the subsequent replicas.

PM90370 Problem: When running IBM Rational ClearCase Multisite command "multitool lsepoch -actual replica1 replica2 ...", if replica1 has not yet been imported on the remote site or the replica hostname is incorrect, then the command should produce an error of the type "unable to retrieve epoch row for remote replica". At this time there is no error or message indicating any issues with replica1 as long at there is connectivity to the remote site and the VOB server host exists.

PM80982 Problem: Rational ClearTeam Explorer incorrectly handles cases in which a user removes the data for a particular version (using "cleartool rmver -force -data -ver ") and then tries to open that version in ClearTeam Explorer (for instance, from the vtree). Under these circumstances, the local copy of the latest version loaded into the view ends up renamed, and appears hijacked.  The user must run an update with the "replace hijacked files" option to recover.

Fix: ClearTeam Explorer now correctly handles the situation in which version data has been removed by the user.  A message is displayed to the user, and the latest version in the view is not modified.

PM80910 Problem: A merge from Version Tree Browser to UCM branch is allowed with an inappropriate Activity in ClearCase

Fix: Checks were added to ClearCase to ensure the stream guarding the branch is the ancestor of the current activity.

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)
    Link Date Released Status
    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.

    PM23022 Corrects a ClearCase documentation issue where a notice to back up scheduler tasks before upgrading was omitted from the ClearCase installation documentation.
    PM29587 Investigates a reference count issue between MVFS mnode and NFS vnode that causes a panic on release of an mnode with a bad vnode reference. The original issue was a refcnt problem, but it is no longer reproducible.
    PM37382 Fixes a Rational Common Licensing documentation issue where Linux System z/OS was omitted from a list of unsupported platforms.
    PM42012 Addresses a ClearCase issue on Solaris platforms where, in the Solaris 8 Branded Zones environment, a setview operation on a newly created dynamic view fails with the error "cleartool: Error: Couldn't set view tag : unknown error in MVFS file system". The root cause of the problem has not been clearly determined and a transient error in the reported environment is suspected. The diagnostic fix introduces additional debug logging to aid the investigation if the problem is encountered again.
    PM42270 Addresses a ClearCase UCM issue on UNIX and Windows platforms where a "chbl" command or a "mkbl" command fails to report the reason when incremental labeling fails.
    PM44290 Investigates a ClearCase MVFS performance issue on Windows 7 platforms where users may experience performance degradation when running an executable in a dynamic view. This behavior is particularly noticeable in a directory that contains thousands of cross-VOB symbolic links. The performance may further decrease if the user’s config spec for the view limits the number of links that are visible. However, this processing overhead can be eliminated by using the group policy editor, gpedit.msc, to disable the Windows Application Compatibility Engine.
    PM45246 Fixes a ClearCase UCM problem where creating a new composite component using the Baseline Dependency Editor can result in new baselines in the rooted components it depends on which do not capture the change sets of earlier baselines in the stream.
    PM50735 Investigates a ClearCase MVFS issue on RedHat Linux platforms where compiling in a dynamic view that is navigated to by using the view-extended name produces a failed stat() system call with an EOVERFLOW error. The problem is not seen while set into view. The problem is due to an older compiler and does not occur with more current compilers.
    PM51187 Fixes a ClearCase UCM problem where the "cleartool rmbl" command incorrectly allows the deletion of a baseline that is member of a composite baseline.
    PM52252 Fixes a ClearTeam Explorer problem on Linux platforms where the Version Tree incorrectly invokes manual merges for elements with a merge-type of 'copy'.
    PM53709 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition where the logical model merge tool does not display when performing an operation that requires a merge from source view to target view if the model that is present in the UML perspective is not that of the target view. In this case, the merges proceed as if they were trivial and the models become potentially corrupt.
    PM54068 Fixes a ClearTeam Explorer problem on HP-UX 11.31/IA64 platforms where piping a 'cleartool ls -recurse -view_only' command to 'xargs rm-rf' produces a segmentation fault error in fileutl_make_abs_pn.

    PM57652 Investigates a ClearCase diff/merge issue on Windows platforms where a "Compare to previous version" operation results in an internal error message for XML files. The problem was that the input file contained erroneous spaces and TABs.
    PM57870 Fixes a ClearCase MultiSite error where removing an unlabeled baseline in a VOB that is mod_master enabled fails with the following error: "db_obj_delete_V3: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection reset by peer."
    PM57898 Fixes an IBM Installation Manager problem where attempting to install ClearCase Remote Client 7.1.2.x and the Rational License Key Administrator 8.1.1 at the same time produces the following error message: "The IBM Rational License Key Administrator and IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client 7.1.2 packages cannot coexist on the same package group."
    PM59649 Fixes a ClearCase MultiSite problem where a "syncreplica import" operation fails with the message "multitool: Error: Error from VOB database: ‘\sources’. "
    PM59761 Investigates a ClearCase UCM issue on Windows platforms where a rebase operation fails to propagate a new baseline dependency hierarchy and the hierarchy matches the most recent "Edit Baseline Dependency window" and not the most recent "Stream Configuration." This behavior is expected, but users can have the hierarchy match the most recent "Stream Configuration" by editing the Baseline Dependencies in the child stream and making the required change there.
    PM60045 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer running on Windows platforms where comment changes made to a checked out version of an element are lost upon checkin.
    PM60151 Fixes a problem in ClearTeam Explorer running on Windows platforms when a file compare operation fails when using the ClearCase External Compare/Merge tool.

    PM60516 Investigates a ClearCase issue on Windows XP-Professional platforms where double-byte characters appear corrupted when running a cleartool command if your advanced locale settings in the Microsoft Windows Control Panel are set to Japanese on your English operating system. View-private files and files on the local file system both appear correctly. To avoid corrupting the files, open them after you have specified the Advanced setting in Regions and Locale in the Microsoft Control Panel.
    PM60949 Fixes a ClearCase UCM defect in the Typemanager found on Windows platforms where a merge performed during a deliver operation can copy from a version that is not one of the contributing versions.
    PM61035 Fixes a ClearCase view server problem on all UNIX platforms where the view server remains active and writes continuous error messages to the log when a root user executes a "cleartool mkview" command on a remote host while lacking the correct permissions to the network access storages.
    PM61095 Fixes a problem in the ClearCase UCM integration with ClearQuest where canceling a rebase or deliver operation when using a WAN ClearQuest connection produces errors and does not remove the ClearQuest activity.
    PM61730 Fixes a ClearCase problem on Windows XP platforms where running a "cleartool annotate -rm" command incorrectly displays a text file output if the text file does not have a new line character at the end of the file.
    PM61813 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition on Red Hat Linux x86 platforms where the export of a team project set produces projects that use vob-tag roots (instead of view-extended path names) causing the project set file export to fail with an "internal error".
    PM61814 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational System Architect RealTime on UNIX platforms where having cross-VOB symbolic links can produce the following error when attempting to open the model in the GUI: "CcException: CRMAP7009: CCRC command 'ReadProperties' failed: ClearCase: Error: CRMSV2008."
    PM62113 Fixes a CCRC WAN server problem on UNIX platforms where the server fails to authenticate users when the WebSphere profile hosting the server is not running as root. The same error occurs if the profile is not installed within an existing profile, and the /opt/rational/common/ccrcprofile is changed to run as a non-root user (per WebSphere instructions to change the ownership of a profile).
    PM62115 Remedies a CCRC WAN sever documentation issue where the steps for running within a non-root application server profile were omitted from technote 1506940: Administering CCRC WAN server
    PM62116 Investigates a ClearCase MVFS issue on SUSE 11 Linux platforms where running a ls -al command within a view-extended path can cause a Stale NFS File Handle on directories. However, this is because the VOB is not mounted and ClearCase does not support accessing files using view-extended pathnames on unmounted VOBs.
    PM62492 Fixes a ClearCase problem on Windows 7 platforms where a reserved checkout operation on a locally mastered branch invoked via ClearCase Explorer or Windows Explorer results in an unreserved, nonmastered checkout.
    PM62520 Investigates a ClearCase MVFS issue on SUSE 11 Linux platforms where the kernel panics on vnode_dop_revalidate through a view-extended path. This appears to have been a defect in SUSE Linux itself which has been fixed by Novell.
    PM62669 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer for Eclipse client on Windows XP platforms where non-trivial text file merges fail to start the built-in merge manager in Eclipse 3.7.x and the merge operation fails.
    PM63090 Addresses a ClearCase MultiSite performance issue on Linux SUSE 64 platforms where a "multitool syncreplica -export" process can produce delays while waiting to read from the TCP buffer. To suppress this behavior, set up an environment variable called "CLEARCASE_SUPPRESS_NODELAY" before running the "multitool syncreplica -export" command.
    PM63612 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition on Windows and UNIX platforms where ClearTeam Explorer selects only the first model file in the selection containing logical resources, instead of all user-selected model files in the selection, when running a ClearCase Merge Search operation.
    PM63615 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition on Windows and UNIX platforms where attempting to checkin when using the "ptime" option within a dynamic view when the "Refresh automatically" preference is enabled produces out-of-sync pop-ups. In addition, the "Preserve modification time" preference setting was not honored on restart when using dynamic views.
    PM63775 Fixes a ClearCase installation problem encountered when installing the ClearCase integration with VS.NET on Windows platforms where using a batch file with a name that contains multiple periods (such as register-com.ibm.rational.cmdotnet.cc-wan-vs2008.bat) produces the following error message: "ERROR CreateProcess: C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalSDLC\ClearCase\bin\register- com.ibm.rational.cmdotnet.cc-wan-vs2008.bat error=5."
    PM63779 Addresses a ClearTeam Explorer issue encountered on UNIX and Linux platforms where starting a Merge Search operation in a setview context fails.

    PM65054 Fixes a problem in the ClearTeam Explorer integration with Rational System Architect RealTime Edition on Linux platforms where the ClearTeam Explorer did not automatically add any view-private model elements to source control during a logical model checkin.
    PM65080 Fixes a ClearTeam Explorer problem on Linux platforms where importing two project sets through consecutive imports of two .psf files in which each .psf file has a reference to the same project causes the import to fail and the workspace to become unusable.
    RATLC01338822 Investigates a ClearCase MVFS reference count defect on AIX systems that causes NFS to panic. The issue is no longer reproducible.
    RATLC01344509 Addresses a ClearCase issue on z/OS platforms where a file filter by state in the 'View file list' panel was not supported in TSOC.

    Fix Pack 2 (8.0.0.2)
    Link Date Released Status
    APAR Description
    PM08241 Fixes a ClearTeam Explorer problem where symbolic links are returned as candidates for an aggregate checkout operation when a wild card filter is used (such as, for example, *.txt). In these cases, the aggregate checkout operation does not differentiate between the source or the target of a symbolic link and it returns the following error message: "CRVAP0087E CCRC command 'checkout' failed: Version discordance detected for "C:\ccweb\user\view_tage\VOB\Directory\link.txt". Symbolic links are also no longer considered as candidates for aggregate checkin and undo checkout operations.
    PM26027 Fixes a ClearCase problem on all platforms where enabling the "Preserve version creation time when files are updated or loaded from the server" preference setting and using a preop checkin trigger that performs a modification produces the following error message: "CRVAP0087E CCRC command 'checkin' failed: Error: java.io.IOException: Unable to set last modified time on "{Path to file}": Unknown error..".

    PM55154 Fixes a ClearCase Mainframe Connectors problem on the IBM z/OS platform where a remote build work job produces an Abend when certain large Chinese files are downloaded from MVS to AIX with "-k IBM-5488 -r IBM-1388".
    PM55177 Addresses a ClearCase issue on Solaris platforms where attempting to exceed the limit of 16 groups that may be added to a VOB group list produces an error message that incorrectly states that more groups may be added. The "cleartool protectvob -add_group" message has been corrected so that it accurately indicates how many groups may still be added to a VOB group list.
    PM55178 Fixes a ClearCase issue in the Unicode type manager for cleartool file types 'utf16le_file' and 'utf16be_file'. Without this fix, every create version operation for these types appends an extra BOM character, these files are not added to source control during a mkelem operation, and the contents of these files change when the files are checked in.
    PM55212 Fixes a ClearTeam Explorer problem where loading a view produces the following error message in the ClearCase error log: "ClearCase CM Server: Error: Unable to commit item" even though the view loads as expected. The error message for failed commits now writes to the ClearCase error log only if trace is enabled to level 1. Failed commit issues are resolved transparently by the ClearTeam Explorer.
    PM55257 Fixes a ClearQuest MultiSite problem on Linux platforms that occurs after upgrading a ClearCase MultiSite shipping_server Linux host and specifying a port range in either shipping.conf or albd_rt_params.conf. In this case, intermittent transmission failures may occur with error messages stating either "Connection timed out" or "Connection refused."
    PM56026 Fixes a ClearCase installation problem where installing ClearCase with CM Server fails on zSeries Linux SUSE 10 platforms with the following error message: "Conflict detected on port 12880." During the installation, the IBM Install Manager attempts to start CM Server twice, thus the associated ports are in use and the second attempt fails with the reported error.
    PM56362 Fixes a ClearCase problem where Project Explorer becomes unresponsive when multiple error messages are displayed during baseline creation.
    PM56891 Fixes a ClearCase Scheduler problem encountered on Solaris 10 platforms where running the scheduled job 'cleanlogs.sh' in a non-global zone configuration produces the following error message: "mvfslog: Error: Unable to set log info: Not owner."
    PM56988 Fixes a ClearCase problem encountered on multiple UNIX platforms where ClearCase VOBs fail to mount and the mntrpc_server_log contains the following error message: "Error: An error occurred mounting".
    PM56994 Fixes a problem encountered when the ClearTeam Explorer is run from a setview context on Linux platforms. Under these conditions, the 'Show History' and 'Show Version Tree' operations fail silently.
    PM57276 Resolves a ClearCase MultiSite issue where attempting to perform an 'Add to Source Control' operation fails silently if the user is trying to create the element in a replicated VOB.
    PM57508 Fixes a ClearCase problem with the CCRC WAN Server where the MBEAN for ClearCase Primary Group was not honored. In the absence of a client setting for ClearCase primary group, the value of this MBEAN is used for all CCRC users accessing this server. A client setting takes precedence over this MBEAN value.
    PM57892 Fixes a problem in the ClearCase Remote Client UCM integration with ClearQuest where ClearQuest users who upgraded their version of the ClearQuest Web client received a NULLPointerException and were unable to view change set information if there was no active view on the target stream.
    PM58408 Fixes a ClearCase MVFS problem on HP_UX platforms where a memory leak causes builds to eventually fail.
    RATLC01337421 Corrects a defect in ClearCase where running a "cleartool lstype" command produces an error and terminates the listing if the command is run in a VOB with an AdminVOB hyperlink when the AdminVOB is unavailable or run in a MultiSite environment where the AdminVOB is out of sync with the child VOB. This fix changes the behavior so that if an error occurs due to the AdminVOB, the command now lists all of the local type information.
    RATLC01341539 Addresses an issue in the ClearTeam Explorer where the default process of creating a dynamic view cannot be completed unless the user modifies the config spec.
