Pinned topic Error getting while merging .

‏2013-01-29T14:40:23Z |
Hi ALL,

I am getting below error while merging file /main/bps/fxare.C to current branch (/main/sol10_mig/LATEST) .

ct mkelem -c "merging the elements to default" fxare.C
  • Trigger: Error:

ERROR: You are trying to create an Evil Twin.
Element "tpsblock.C" already exists. It resides
in version /project/cds/src/common/appl/deal/.@@/main/ft_asaudsso/locmkt/sol10_mig/bps/1 of the current directory.
cleartool: Warning: Trigger "pre_modifyelem" has refused to let mkelem proceed.
cleartool: Error: Unable to create element "fxare.C".

or) Please let me know how to add the 'br1' branch element into br2 branch with same name .

Regards
MM

    Hi,

    Somebody who applied this trigger to the VOB would be a good point of contact on the issue.

    Indeed. You could teach him/her how to remove it.

    It also looks like the trigger is doing something odd, the error message references one name and the mkelem references another. Is it possible that "tpsblock.C" was once called "fxare.c"?

    Oh, one other thing, if you are using mkelem, you aren't merging... You're creating a new element. Are you really sure you want to do that?
