    The issue in question occurs only on unix platforms when the
    workbench is running in a view context.  The customer had
    symlinks of the nature /vob/vobtag/some/path --?
    /vob/othervobtag/some/path.  In the version of CTE being
    used, even when running in a view context, imported projects
    would have the path:
    /view/viewtag/vob/vobtag/some/path/projectname the
    ClearCase back end server,  of course would not know about
    the view context as this use case was not truly supported,
    so it ended up looking for the absolute path without having
    a view context.  Naturally it could not find the symlink
    target.  The fix for this deals with this.  The project set
    problems were also due to this effect although not directly
    caused by the ccbe back end.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix has been delivered to IBM Rational ClearCase v
    8.0.0.3.
