Error description

  • When you are working in a remote Unix/Linux IBM Rational
    ClearCase dynamic view in an interop environment and are using
    an Network File System (NFS) client on a Microsoft Windows
    machine, you may experience an error when you are saving view
    private files in UltraEdit, Eclipse or Microsoft Visual
    Studio.NET.
    
    The error is similar to:
    
    "The file has been modified outside of the editor.  Do you want
    to reload?"
    
    You may find that the file is being saved twice with different
    modification times, which is causing this behavior.
    
    This issue does not occur with using an NFS client and local
    Windows views or remote Unix/Linux views using SAMBA or CIFS.
