Error description

  • When performing IBM Rational ClearCase operations on Unix hosts
    where the local usernames are in mixed case, licenses based on
    IBM Rational Common Licensing may be held for unexpectedly long
    times.
    
    To work around the issue, create an  options file on the license
    server and add the following lines:
    TIMEOUT ClearCase 1800
    TIMEOUT MultiSite 1800
    
    For more information on the FlexNet Publisher server options
