    Try the command:
    
    net share
    

    from a Windows cmd prompt.
    I don't know (because you didn't tell) how exeactly you create your view, but this may involve e.g. a 'storage location' which uses a 'network share', and assume this one is defined.
    Check maybe (again, on the command line):
    
    cleartool lsstgloc -view

      Another possibility maybe, would be that you'd have the following environment variable defined:

      CCASE_GPATH_HINTS

      Never used it myself. Found it recently in:
      
      ct man env_ccase

        To be honest, I don't understand how to use it...
        
        H:\>echo %CCASE_GPATH_HINTS% \\EV68B599EABE1A\CC_STG\emagiro   H:\>cleartool mkview -tag emagiro_tst emagiro_tst.vws cleartool: Error: storage directory must be in UNC style (e.g. \\host\share\...)
        

        And by the way:
        
        H:\>net share cc_stg Share name        CC_STG Path              C:\CC_STG Remark Maximum users     No limit Users Caching           Manual caching of documents Permission        Everyone, READ   The command completed successfully.

          Clearcase view prefer UNC path which is is

          \\yourshostname\viewstorage\yourviewname.vws

          So, Create a directory first and then share it for your self atleast with full previlege. Then give the path while creating view as mentioned above format

          Thanks

            You reply to a message in which I was wondering about the use of the CCASE_GPATH_HINTS environment variable.
            In what way did your reply relate to this question?

    Hi All,

    I am getting the same error.

    When I try creating a view I get this error : "The network share does not exist Please verify that you have entered the correct name", and that the directory is currently being shared.

    I have installed ClearCase 7.1 on windows XP SP1.

     

    Can anyone help me out on this.

    What is the exact command that you are using to create a view?

    FCG6_sneha_bate, I see that you do not have any ClearCase storage locations.  I would first make \\D8\CCViews a share, with the CC Administrators group having Full Control in both the security permissions as well as share permissions.

    Once that is done you can use the ct mkstgloc command to create the storage location or use the Storage Location Wizard.  This will ensure that the share is configured properly.

    Well, since this is in the ClearCase view creation wizard, and you're using the explicit storage path option, the next step wouldd be to run:

      net view \\D8

    And see what kind of message you get back. If you get a list of shares, and that list does not include "CCViews" then that is the problem.

    I'm pretty sure that there are no registered view locations since there is nothing listed in the greyed-out list above it in the screen capture.
