    The following warning message can be seen when loading mvfs:

    symbol '_depends_on[]' is deprecated: "strmod/rpcmod"

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When ClearCase is starting on a Solaris 11 update 4 system,  *
    * the following warning message can be seen: "use of symbol    *
    * '_depends_on[]' is deprecated: strmod/rpcmod"                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ClearCase product source code which references the
    deprecated symbol '_depends_on[]' has been updated to replace
    that reference with options passed to the linker to encode the
    dependency in the MVFS module at link time.  There is no
    functional change to the MVFS, and the warning message at load
    time is eliminated.
