Error description

  • When performing a 'cleartool checkout' IBM Rational ClearCase,
    of an element in the VOB's component root directory (CRD) it
    fails with 'Unable to add version to activity change set'. This
    occurs when the element was already present in base ClearCase
    prior to the element being created and the CRD had not been
    checked in when the component created. The subsequent import of
    the label and baseline results in the element being visible but
    not part of the component.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    To workaround this issue the element needs to be 'rmnamed' and
    then linked back into the component.
