I am currently configuring a linux server for clearcase and I am facing trouble in configuring MVFS on the server.
After installation I faced the below error when I tried to start clearcase
ClearCase daemons: albd_server FATAL: Error inserting mvfs (/lib/modules/126.96.36.199-0.85.1-ppc64/kernel/fs/mvfs/mvfs.ko):
Invalid module format
Loading the MVFS was unsuccessful(8:1)
/opt/rational/clearcase/etc/clearcase: Loading MVFS failed
- Please review /var/log/messages for information on the problem.
- You may need to rebuild your kernel, rebuild your mvfs module,
- and reboot your system. Information on how to do this can be found in
- your Release Notes and file /var/adm/rational/clearcase/mvfs/mvfs_src/README.txt
I rebuilt the mvfs module as mentioned in the README.txt and when I tried starting clearcase I get the below error
ClearCase is stopped
ClearCase daemons: albd_server The ClearCase mvfs file system will not be loaded.
The mvfs is also not listed when I check for the version.
ClearCase version 188.8.131.52 (Fri Dec 17 17:22:14 EST 2010) (7.1.2.01.00_2010D.FCS)

cleartool 22.214.171.124 (Tue Aug 9 00:44:35 2011)
db_server 126.96.36.199 (Tue Aug 9 00:45:16 2011)
VOB database schema version: 54
The version of the kernel in the server is 188.8.131.52-0.3-default
Is this error due to the version of kernel or am I doing something wrong during installation? The version of kernel on the servers where it is working correctly is 184.108.40.206-0.4-default
The server was also restarted after rebuilding the mvfs module.
Please help me.
