No available Server Storage Location entries - Unable to create temporary view

Technote (troubleshooting)


This technote explains why the IBM® Rational® ClearCase® CCImportWizard (GUI equivalent to clearfsimport) fails with the following error No available Server Storage Location entries. Unable to create temporary view. along with steps to resolve the problem.


When running the CCImportwizard.exe the following error dialog box occurs:

Unable to create temporary view.
No available Server Storage Location entries

This error is caused by having no registered view storage locations available for the CCImportWizard to use during the import of files into ClearCase on the host attempting the import.

Resolving the problem

To correct this problem, either

1. Run the Server Storage Wizard (located at C:\Program Files\Rational\ClearCase\etc\SvrStor.exe) which can be access from Start > Programs > Rational Software > Rational ClearCase > Administration > Server Storage Wizard


2. Run the cleartool mkstgloc command from the command line interface (CLI) to create registered View storage location. Review the IBM Rational ClearCase Command Reference guide on the topic of cleartool mkstgloc (cleartool man mkstgloc) for more details.

Once the view storage location has been created, CCImportWizard will function without yielding this error.
