Error description

  • When performing a parallel build using the IBM Rational
    ClearCase clearmake tool, an 'INTERNAL ERROR' message may occur
    under the following conditions:
    
    - A target definition creates multiple output files
    - One or more of those targets is available as a sharable
    Derived Object in other views.
    - one or more winkin attempts fail.
    - the build script builds all the targets and not just the ones
    that did not wink in.
    
    The build appears to complete normally with the exception of the
    error message.
    
    At this time, the only way to avoid the issue is to either not
    build in parallel or to use the .NOTPARALLEL special target to
    prev ent the problem target from building in parallel.

Problem conclusion

  • After analysis of this APAR we have determined we won?t fix
    this issue due to: low priority/severity, the risk of a fix
    and a straightforward workaround.  A priority decision has
    been made that this defect cannot be addressed in the next
    18 months without neglecting issues of higher importance and
    less risk.  Thank you for your understanding.
