Creating a new BaseCMActivity from a xclearcase client causes the xclearcase GUI to hang
If you create a new BaseCMActivity in a IBM Rational UCM ClearCase (CC)-ClearQuest (CQ) integration environment from xclearcas, the xclearcase GUI hangs.
When you create a new activity for the new version during a check in/out, the
xClearCase window hangs.
BaseCMActivity can be correctly created by means of the CQ interface and a
UCMBaseActivity previously created via the ClearQuest interface can be correctly set by the
cleartool command from command line.
xClearCase interface hangs because there is already an existing ClearQuest job running that prevents the ClearCase-ClearQuest integration interface from starting.
This can be reproduced by trying to create more than 1 activity at a time in different windows.

Diagnosing the problem
Verify that a ClearQuest process is already running by doing the following:
- Open the Command Prompt (terminal session).
ps -ef |grep clearquest
- Scroll through the output of previous command, and check that no ClearQuest process is already running.
Resolving the problem
If you find a ClearQuest job already running, do the following to prevent the hanging:
- Make a note of the Process ID.
kill <process ID>.
- Create the
