Pinned topic Trouble finding the global definition for local type "???".

‏2012-11-27T06:30:17Z |
I am getting the following error for most of the clearcase activities, like labeling, checkout etc.

cleartool: Error: Error from VOB database: "\11.3.0".
cleartool: Error: Trouble finding the global definition for local type "???".
cleartool: Error: Trouble applying label to

Some times it is going on, but most often failing with this error. Above is the error while applying a label. Please suggest

    Are the VOBs multisited?
    Do they reside on the same server?

    greetings georg.

    1) Describe the "\11.3.0" VOB. Do you see "Object not available" messages in the describe?
    2) If the VOB is replicated, please do the same describe at the other sites. Look for hyperlinks.
    3) If you are trying to apply a label, what label are you trying to apply, and is it present in the VOB already?
    4) Does your checkout perform a mkbranch or other operation? Or are you getting errors about "process guards" on checkout?
    5) What is the exact error message for the other failed operations?
    6) When did this problem start happening? Has it ever worked on this VOB?
