Error description

  • This defect affects IBM Rational ClearCase MultiSite sync import
    operations which may, on occasion, result in the following
    errors during import of a synchronization packet:
    
    2012-09-05T10:25:36+03:00 db_server(9048): Error: db_VISTA error
    3
    
    2012-08-31T08:57:08+03:00 db_server(30512): Error: db_VISTA
    error 3 (errno == 'Inappropriate ioctl for device')
    
    2012-08-17T16:06:25+02:00 db_server(25948): Error: DBMS error in
     '/vobs/atria/lib/db/db__oplog.c' line 122
    
    
    This has been observed when the importing replica attempts to
    process the same oplog twice. The second operation fails with
    db_VISTA 3 error indicating it is a duplicate oplog. The problem
    has only been seen on protect oplogs and does not appear to
    cause any problems with synchronization.
    
    Steps to reproduce: The exact conditions to reproduce this issue
    are unknown.
    
    Workaround: There is no known workaround. However, the issue
    does not present a risk to VOB database integrity and does not
    prevent synchronization so no workaround is necessary.
