We're running ClearCase version 188.8.131.52 with Windows 7, but some of our project need to be compiled at Win XP.
So I set up a virtual machine with VMWare Workstation.
The source files are accessed via shared folders (network connection - host only) as drive M:\.
The idea was to use Win 7 for all the ClearCase tasks (checking out/in, branching, merging, ...) while compiling inside the VM-XP.
All the tool work fine as long as the files are placed on the host machine or a server somewhere in the local network.
The problem starts when I try to use ClearCase dynamic views - the performance is incredibly bad, even when I just try to inspect the files using windows explorer, it's about ten seconds just for changing folders.
Are there any settings I can change or does a workaround exist to enhance the performance?
Thanks in advance!
