Error description

  • 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.
