Error description

  • When checking out a file element in IBM Rational ClearCase
    Remote Client or ClearTeam Explorer using a hijacked file, the
    'Last Modified' time displayed in the web view graphical
    interface will reflect the mtime of the version that was checked
    out rather than the mtime of the private hijacked file that was
    used for the checkout. This occurs whenever the option is select
    in the client preferences to 'Preserve version creation time
    when files are updated or loaded from the server' even though in
    this case neither update nor load occurs.
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    
    1) Ensure the option to 'Preserve version creation time when
    files are updated or loaded from the server' is selected in the
    client preferences.
    2) Load elements from a VOB into a CCRC or CTE web view. Note
    the 'Last Modified' time reflects the checkin time of the
    version.
    3) Hijack a file element and make a change. Note the 'Last
    Modified' time changes to reflect the time of the alteration.
    4) Checkout the file and elect to use the hijacked content. Note
    the 'Last Modified' time reverts to the checkin time from the
    VOB and does not reflect the hijacked change.
    
    Workarounds:
    None known. Changes to the checked out file after the issue
    occurs, however, will update the 'Last Modified' time
    accordingly.
