Error description

  • When checking in file elements on an IBM Rational ClearCase
    client host, data loss can occur if the following error message
    is displayed during checkin:
    vobsvr_make_container_permanent call failed: RPC: Timed out
    cleartool: Error: Operation 'vobsvr_make_container_permanent'
    failed: timed out trying to communicate with ClearCase remote
    server
    
    When this error occurs, the following message should NOT be
    displayed:
    Checked in 'filename.exe' version
    '\main\MyProject_Integration\5'.
    
    If that 'success' message is displayed, the checkin has actually
    failed, and data has been lost.
