Error description

  • If you are working in an IBM Rational ClearCase dynamic view and
    copy a checked in file from one directory to another, the
    read-only bit is retained on the new view private file.
    
    If you modify the file and attempt to save it with the read only
    bit, you will see that you are unable to save the file as it is
    "read-only".  If you remove the read-only attribute, you will
    find that you are still unable to save the file and will get an
    access denied error message.
