APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If ClearCase operations requiring a vob_server process,
    including checkins, MultiSite sync imports, etc., are initiated
    while a protectVOB operation is in progress, the vob_server
    process will report:
    vob_server.exe(11880): Error: Temporarily unavailable, admin
    process running as pid 65535
    
    Once that message appears, operations requiring a vob_server
    process will not be possible in that VOB until ClearCase is
    restarted.
    

Local fix

  • None, aside from arranging a system downtime for ProtectVOB
    operations.
