Pinned topic ClearCase version issue | Windows 7 | URGENT

‏2014-02-06T07:47:49Z |

Hello Friends,

We are using IBM Rational ClearCase ver6.0. (as it was already updated and was trying to upgrade, depends on management) and planning to upgrade ver7.1. But all these things depends on our higher management. Currently, the main issue is, all our Client machines are using Windows XP. We came to know that Windows XP is going to expire and will be removed from our machines by March 14, 2014. As IT team told this, we all are worried about Client machines. As some of the Builds we make on Windows environment.

Can anyone of you suggest what we can do at this point of time? We are having so many M&S Projects and new Projects. Most of the Builds will be made in Windows environment to get Build artifacts. As we came to know, ClearCase ver6.0 doesn't support on Windows 7. It supports only ClearCase ver7.1.1. Is there any remedy for this? Please need all your concerns and suggessions. As we are in trouble. Thanks a ton in advance.

Regards/Suresh.

    I would not plan on upgrading to 7.1.x as this is going to be at the end-of-support on April 30, 2014.  I would suggest considering to upgrade ot 8.0.0.9 or 8.0.1.2 or later as they contain the new MVFS IO redesign.

    nfortunately, if you need to go to Windows 7, there is no other option than upgrade.
