Error description

  • When performing container recovery/repair in an IBM Rational
    ClearCase Versioned Object Base (VOB) using the checkvob tool,
    the following error may appear while processing damaged UTF16 or
    UTF32 elements:
         cleartool: Error: Malformed "<empty>" container info record
    on line 1
    
    An "internal error" message may also be displayed.
    
    The checkvob tool is assuming that the output of this call will
