Error description

  • When building in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view using
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 SP1, the build appears to succeed,
    but the program may not correctly execute. Investigation shows
    that the manifest was not being correctly updated during the
    link phase of the build.
    
    One possibly related APAR is: IC43253.
    
    However, in this issue, the workaround listed at
    https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1IC43253
    has no impact at all.
    
    Workaround: Turning off incremental linking does resolve this
    issue.

    ****************************************************************
    During a build, the incremental link was taking an incorrect
    action because the modification time of an object, viewed
    only in discrete seconds, appeared not to have changed.
    However, changes had occurred within a second.
    MVFS was not maintaining timestamps below the granularity of
    seconds.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in ClearCase 7.1.1.8, 7.1.2.5, and 8.0.0.1.
