Error description

  • Headline:
    Copy and paste of view private files result in owner/group to be
    NOBODY/NOBODY
    
    APAR Description:
    After creating a new element, Windows Clearcase explorer always
    shows the the ownership and
    group to be NOBODY/NOBODY
    
    1. create a new view-private directory (this already gets
    owner/group NOBODY)
    2. in CC Explorer: right-click a versioned directory (checked
    in), choose 'Copy'
    3. in CC Explorer: select the newly created private directory,
    right-click, choose 'Paste'
    4. A recursive copy is created in the new private directory
    5. This copy is owned by NOBODY/NOBODY and cannot be changed or
    removed.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    The only way to remove it is to remove the view and re-create
    it.
    Note: in Windows Explorer the 'Paste' step is not possible -
    Windows Explorer 'sees' that the
    private directory is owned by NOBODY and thus does not allow the
    paste in there (CC Explorer
    however allows this)
