Error description

  • When populating a IBM Rational ClearCase Versioned Object base
    (VOB) using the clearfsimport utility, future use of the
    ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) may be significantly impaired if
    the source directory is itself a CCRC workspace containing
    multiple .copyarea.db files.
    
    Workaround:
    1) Before using clearfsimport to migrate data, verify that there
    are no .copyarea.db, .copyarea.dat, and .copyarea.lck files.
    2) If the problem has already occurred, and VOB access is still
    possible, use the native ClearCase client to remove the problem
    files using cleartool rmelem. Use the cleartool find commands to
    search for the files as follows:
    
    cleartool find -all -name '.copyarea.db' -print
    cleartool find -all -name '.copyarea.dat' -print
    cleartool find -all -name '.copyarea.lck' -print
    
    Once the files are located use 'cleartool rmelem -force ...' to
    remove them.
