    That is when you have a "view-private" file (not a Clearcase element) that
    has the same name as one that is an element. This can happen if you
    remove the "element * CHECKEDOUT" rule from your config spec or if you
    change your config spec so you can't see an element and then create a file
    with the same name.

    To see the actual element, use the operating system tools (e.g, Windows
    Explorer or Unix mv) to move the eclipsed file out to another directory,
    then the real element will show up.

    cleartool man ls and search for eclipsed.

    It means that you have a view-private file having the same name as a
    versioned file. The view-private is eclipsing the versioned file. Read
    more about it on the cleartool ls man page.

    To create an eclipsed file, do the following:

    1. Add a -none rule to hide an element from your view:
    element /myvobs/some_vob/a/b/c/foo.txt -none

    2. Do a 'cleartool ls /myvobs/some_vob/a/b/c/foo.txt' on the element.

    3. Create a private file with the same name:
    echo "Hello World!" > /myvobs/some_vob/a/b/c/foo.txt

    4. Do a 'cleartool ls /myvobs/some_vob/a/b/c/foo.txt' on the private file.

    5. Remove or comment out the -none rule from step 1 above.

    6. Do a 'cleartool ls /myvobs/some_vob/a/b/c/foo.txt' on the element. You
    now have two foo.txt files in the same directory which is an impossibility
    with normal filesystems. Therefore, the private foo.txt eclipses (hides)
    the element foo.txt.

    Hi Prahlad,

    The eclisped state is state of file in which the file you have checked out in dynamic view isn't able to delete the local copy of a file after the user checked it in. A third-party tool locking the local file and preventing ClearCase from deleting it during check-in usually causes this. Commonly, an Eclipse happens when using the ClearCase and MS Word integration, or with certain IDEs.
    Solution is got to the user private view and delete it it will preceed with a sign of half moon.

    I can also occur when User A creates a new file in a dynamic view, does not add it to source control; then User B creates the same file and adds it to source control. Now User A has an Eclipsed file. If using Windows the solution can be: User A should copy the view private file to their hard drive, delete it in Windows Explorer, check it out, copy the file from the hard drive to the view, and then check it back in.

    Hope that helps.
