About db_VISTA errors

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Is there a list of db_VISTA errors along with links to the currently available documents for troubleshooting and resolving the various types of db_VISTA errors that may occur when using IBM® Rational® ClearCase® and ClearCase LT®?

Answer

Overview

Database VISTA (db_VISTA) errors in a Rational ClearCase environment are used to communicate a particular status or problem with the VOB database, which is not always corruption.

The VOB database is the db directory located under the root of the VOB storage directory.

Here are the documents currently available to assist with troubleshooting and resolving db_VISTA errors that get reported in the ClearCase logs.

ADVISORY: In some cases there are multiple references to the same db_VISTA number, but the actual error message is unique, for example:

  • db_VISTA error -901 (errno == "Resource temporarily unavailable")

  • db_VISTA error -901 (errno == "Permission denied")

  • db_VISTA database error -901 - system error
