PM79406: CHTYPE OF AN ELEMENT TO TEXT_FILE DOES NOT CLEAN UP TEMPORARY CONTAINERS IN SOURCE POOL UNTIL CHTYPE COMPLETES
Closed as user error.
This is a regression of APAR IC47334. Changing the type of an element such as a compressed_file to text_file in IBM Rational ClearCase will rebuild the source container for the element by creating multiple temporary containers for each version. The temporary containers are not cleaned up until the end of the entire operation, which can be a problem in terms of disk space when the element is of significant size and has many versions. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create an element of type compressed_file 2. Check in 1000 versions of the element, adding text to each version 3. Change the type to text_file and monitor the size of the source pool during the operation. Workaround: No known workaround.
The temporary source containers are removed when no longer needed.
