Error description

  • When you syncronize IBM Rational ClearCase element versions from
    zOS to AIX, during the codec translation from 1388 to 5488,
    there are  some special Chinese characters, such as '$'  that
    appear as ?? after the merge operation.
    
    Once the versions are uploaded using the TSOC client, they will
    also appear as ??.
    
    WORKAROUND: None

    * Description
      The convert of $?0x5B? to CP5488 $?0x24? was hard-coded in
    the implementation of 16729. That caused the problem that
    the Unicode service can not be customized. In CEB , both the
    file name and file content have the $ sign. They want the $
    to be converted to the same $ in AIX Chinese languages.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.1.8, 7.1.2.5
    and 8.0.0.1
