we have a interop setup where vob server is on linux and clients on windows.
I see "checkedout but could not copy data to view" error when i checkout any file as any user. But the same works as vob owner.
I have searched many IBM sites and protection is run on VOb's Views etc
1. the view storage directory is having full permission for vob owner, primary group and the user
2. user primary group is same as vob primary group and has full permission on view storage directory.
3. checkout on directory is working as user but not the file elements inside it.
4. issue is only with dynamic view. for Static view i can checkout/checkin as user or vobowner.
5. I have also tested by creating a view on linux and make that view available in windows region. checkout and checkin of same files works from windows location as any user and vob owner
Server OS : Linux 6.2
samba version : 3.5
Any pointers will be helpful.

Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-15T13:13:04Z in response to SystemAdminAre the protections of these directories in the VOB set to rwx for Group.
> cleartool des .@@
directory element ".@@"
element type: directory
User : MSNET\xxxx : rwx
Group: MSNET\yyyy : rwx
Other: : rwx
If not you should change the protection on the vobtag and recursively on all its subdirectories.

Check also the protections of the vob storage directories (pools, and directories to access them).
Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-16T04:26:10Z in response to SystemAdminHi,
I see the permission perfect for vobtag and all its directories
#cleartool desc .@@
User : vobowner : rwx
Group: primgrp : rwx
Other: : r-x
Also i have run checkvob with -fix option on the VOB.

Yes, but what about the storage?
ct lsvob <vobtag>
Can you cd to the pools and down to all directories as user?
Go to the root of the storage (as user), and (not ct find!):
find . -name .identity -prune -o -type d ! -perm -a+rx
This should only print .identity

Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-22T23:07:27Z in response to SystemAdminDo the share permissions on the (shared) CC storage folder include the CC albd account with Full Control?
If you are on Windows 7, the CC albd account must also have Full Control on the CC storage itself, in addition to the Share permissions.

Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-29T20:52:28Z in response to SystemAdminThe original error you reported, "checkedout but could not copy data to view", indicates to me that it is the view storage that has the permissions issue.
What is the name of the CC albd account you are using? For example, clearcase_albd?. Does this account have Full Control to the CC storage shared folder on the machine where the view storage directory exists?

Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-15T17:00:35Z in response to SystemAdminWhile we're at it, can you tell us if this is a new configuration or if this has ever worked?
Also, is it limited to specific hosts or users?
I ask because I've seen some odd checkout problems occur when this directory is locked down:
...\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\ClearCase\var\cache
If users can't write to that directory, the user-specific credential mapping caches won't get populated (the failure will be silent) and the MVFS may not allow the users to write to places where they are supposed to be able to. If you don't see a "ClearCase_check" directory in there, or a file in that directory whose name matches that of the currently-logged in user, then you probably have this directory locked down too tightly.
This issue generally happens after a fresh install or in some cases an upgrade.

Re: Access Denied in a VOB2013-01-16T04:33:50Z in response to brcowanhi Brian,
Thank you so much for your answer.
i see a file in the check-sum directory whose name matches the currently logged-in user, but the file is of 0 byte.
Also i am able to create a file in the check-sum directory as the same user.
1. I have run checkvob on the VOB with -fix option.
2. The group has full permission on the elements, but still I am unable to checkout the file.
3. Snapshot views works perfect, but not dynamic view :(
