Error description

  • If you set PROMPT=$_Time: $T ($D)$_Share: $M$_Path:$P$_$_$+$G,
    you will get unexpected results for an IBM Rational ClearCase
    Dynamic view\vob context
    
    It works in both the MVFS drive letter (M:) and in a view
    context.
    > cd M:
    Time: 16:06:36.22 (Wed 10/14/2015)
    Share: \\view\
    Path:M:\
    
    >cd testuser_dyn
    Time: 16:06:43.38 (Wed 10/14/2015)
    Share: \\view\testuser_dyn
    Path:M:\testuser_dyn
    
    
    In a view\vob context, you do not receive the expected results.
    >cd baseVOB
    Time: 16:06:45.33 (Wed 10/14/2015)

    Path:M:\testuser_dyn\baseVOB

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Operations which rely on the full DOS drive pathname for a   *
    * MVFS dynamic view/VOB path were receiving an incorrect       *
    * string, which caused unexpected results from those           *
    * operations.                                                  *

Problem conclusion

  • A string value in the ClearCase network provider module was
    corrected in ClearCase 8.0.1.10, to allow proper parsing of DOS
    drive paths into dynamic views.
