Error description

  • When you try to remove a remote IBM Rational ClearCase view
    using a Microsoft Windows 8 client, Microsoft Windows 2012
    server and later with a Windows 2008R2 view
    server,
    you will receive errors
    similar to:
    
    \\host\share\test.vws.tmp\.hostname: The parameter is incorrect.
    
    This will occur for the following files: .hostname, .view,
    groups.sd, identity.sd, new.owner, and readme.txt
    
    You can use the following workarounds:
    
    1. If you remove the NETWORK group from the file permissions,
    you
    will be able to remove the view.
      This is due to the "DENY" settings for this group.
    
    You must also have WRITE permissions to remove the view.
    
    
    2. You can also remove the view locally on the view server
    without any modifications.
    
    This does not occur in Windows 7 or earlier and these files do
    contain the NETWORK group with the DENY setting or if you do not
    have WRITE permissions.
    
    3. You may also have issues with the SMB cache redirector and
    need to modify all 3 values listed in
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff686200%28v=ws.10%29
