Relocate fails with Can't create object with group that is not in the VOBs group list
This technote explains why attempts to run the IBM® Rational® ClearCase® relocate command results in the error Can't create object with group that is not in the VOBs group list.
One or more of the elements being relocated from the Source VOB is owned by a group that is not represented in the VOBs group list of the Destination VOB.
Review technote 1132158 for more information about the Primary Group requirements for element creation.
Resolving the problem
Find and reprotect to elements in the Source VOB so that relocate can move them into the destination VOB.
Issue the following command to locate and reprotect the elements in the VOB with the problematic group:
cleartool find -all -group <group from error> -exec "cleartool protect -chgrp clearuser \"%CLEARCASE_PN%\""
UNIX® and Linux®
cleartool find -all -group <group from error> -exec '/opt/rational/clearcase/bin/cleartool protect -chgrp clearuser $CLEARCASE_PN'
Once complete, run the relocate command to allow the elements to process successfully.
