Error description

  • When working in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view, users
    are able to create view private files with the read-only bit
    set.  The user who created the view private file can remove the
    read-only bit.
    
    If a user leaves the company or is gone for an extended period
    of time, it is expected that a user who is a member of the
    ClearCase server process group should be able to remove the
    read-only bit so the file can be modified or deleted.
    
    When trying to do this as a local admin on the system as well as
    a member of the ClearCase group, you will get the following
    error:
    
    Z:\vob\dir1?attrib ro_test.txt
         R       Z:\vob\dir1\ro_test.txt
    
    Z:\vob\dir1?attrib -r ro_sue_test.txt
    Access denied - Z:\vob\dir1\ro_sue_test.txt
