Error description

  • When an IBM Rational ClearCase VOB database has created
    2,147,483,648  (2**31)
    records of versions labels and / or MultiSite oplogs, then
    attempts to create more of these record types shall fail, with
    the following message being logged in the db_server_log
      db_server(nnnnn): Error: Internal error in
    "/vobs/atria/lib/db/db__seq.c" line 144
    
    This currently is a limitation of ClearCase; a 32-bit signed
    integer sequence number is allocated every time an oplog entry
    is generated or a label is applied to a version. This number has
    hit its maximum value.
      In a MultiSite replicated VOB, no further work can be done.
      In an unreplicated VOB, checkins and checkout can proceed, but
    labels cannot be applied.
