An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end error in ClearQuest Designer

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

This technote explains how to resolve the error "An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end". This can occur when opening a schema using IBM Rational ClearQuest Designer.

Symptom

You open a checked-out schema in ClearQuest Designer. This error occurs:


An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end



Cause

The schema version might be corrupted.

Resolving the problem

To workaround this issue, try undoing the schema checkout in ClearQuest Designer.


If that fails, use the command utility: installutil uncheckout

Usage: installutil uncheckout
         dbset_name (use "" for default)
         cq_login
         cq_password
         schema_name
         checkin_msg

If this problem occurs connecting from other hosts, or if other versions of the schema cannot be opened, or if other schemas in the repository cannot be opened, then there is likely schema corruption and you will have to restore from backup to resolve this.
