  2. On Client environment, start Rational Synergy Java CLI session.


  3. Create a task, for example task1.


  4. Create a project, for example project1.


  5. Create a file, for example a1. (Default work area of Rational Synergy on UNIX is Link-Based)

Resolving the problem

Steps to resolve:

  1. Login to UNIX machine as root user where Rational Synergy client run-area is available.


  2. Open the file /etc/auto_master.

    /net -hosts -nosuid,soft,nobrowse,noac


  4. Verify noac option is available; if noac is not mentioned for the entry /net in auto_master file, add the entry noac at the end for /net entry mentioned in Step 3.


  5. Modify the respective entry and save the file.


  6. As root user of the UNIX machine; execute automount command.
