Error description

  • When you are reviewing the IBM Rational ClearCase view server
    logs, you may see that there is a warning on
    chmaster/protect events for new Unified Change Management (UCM)
    types, as follows:
    
    view_server(16510): Warning: Unexpected vob event on
    vobserver:/?PATH TO VOB.vbs?:0x953E0, vob  op 30, mtype 39,
    evkind 7
    view_server(18574): Warning: Unexpected vob event on
    vobserver:/?PATH TO VOB.vbs?:0x5E6D24, vob op 30, mtype 41,
    evkind 7
    
    This warning does not contain any information that would allow
    you to identify the event.  Since both the chmaster and protect
    commands are valid VOB modifications, you would not expect the
    operations to be reported as 'unexpected'.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None.
