Error description

  • When "rebase -complete" is transtioning the rebase state from
    "integact_cleared" to "config_updated",
       and it encounters a "malformed" UseBaseline hyperlink that
    EITHER
       it created during the current rebase  [and user attempting
    "rebase -resume -complete"]
    OR
       it needs to destroy during the current rebase
    then the rebase operation fails with the messages:
    ...
    Updating stream's configuration...
    cleartool: Error: Can't update stream's configuration.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to update config.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to complete integration.
    cleartool: Error: Can't update stream's configuration.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to resume rebase.
    
    
    
    "malformed" here means the the hyperlink exists in the VOB of
    the stream being rebased,
       but is not known in the VOB of the baseline it points to
    That is, it is seen in the output of
        cleartool desc -ahlink UseBaseline stream:...
    and is NOT seen in the output of
        cleartool desc -ahlink UseBaseline baseline:...
    

Local fix

  • In most cases the rebase can proceed if the ClearCase
    administrator (owner of the PVOB of the stream) removes the bad
    hyperlink with "cleartool rmhlink"

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * A new routine is used to remove broken hyperlinks caused by  *
    * locked pvob, so "rebase -comp" can continue to create a new  *
    * hyperlink.                                                   *
