Error description

  • You are not prevented from performing an mklabel operation in
    the IBM Rational ClearCase/Cadence Integration when the label
    type does not exist.
    
    You will see an error similar to:
    
    ct mklabel -recurse FOO1 .
    cleartool: Error: label type 'FOO1' not found in VOB '\test' and
    no global type definition can be found.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to create label 'FOO1' on '.' version
    '\main\1'.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to create label 'FOO1' on '.\dir1'
    version '\main\1'.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Confirm that the label type exists in the vob by running the
    cleartool lstype lbtype:label_name:
    
    M:\vu2\test?ct lstype lbtype:FOO1
    cleartool: Error: Label type not found: 'FOO1'.
    
    
    Create the label type first using the cleartool mklbtype command
    
    M:\vu2\test?ct mklbtype -nc FOO1
    Created label type 'FOO1'.

    ****************************************************************
    In the Rational ClearCase integration with Cadence Design
    Framework II, attempting to apply a label for which the
    ClearCase label type was not defined would generate an
    error, rather than creating the label type in the
    appropriate VOB(s).
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in ClearCase 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2.
