Pinned topic About the pathname limitation on Windows and its affect on ClearCase

‏2013-09-03T12:31:25Z |

hi,

What is the maximum directory path supported by Rational ClearCase 8 on Windows 7?

I have recently come across this issue where the clearcase options are not displayed upon right clicking the view private files.

sometimes i am even not able to create view private files.

I have read the doc : http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21120400#operations-affected and it says the maximum is 255 characters.

But I could add the files to source control using command prompt.

The CC Server is on Linux 6.2 and I was successful in adding files using linux machines.

could you please tell me if there is any workaround or solution ?

    You've located the right technote and I think the questions are answered there. Using Linux for your back end may help in some cases as the unix/linux path limits are much longer.
