Error description

  • When a rebase operation is removing a [rootless] component from
    the stream's configuration, and for any reason the rebase fails,
    then after resolving the condition that caused the failure,
    subsequent attempts to complete the rebase fail with:
    Rebase in progress on stream "XXXXXXXXXXX_Integration".
    Started by "uuuuuu" at 11/02/2016 6:47:28 PM.
    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.
    
    Also attempts to cancel the rebase fail with:
    cleartool: Error: Unable to cancel rebase because another
    operation is trying to complete.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to cancel rebase.
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    This occurs when removing from the stream's configuration a
    component in which, generally, several composite baselines have
    been created, along with other complicating factors.
    

Local fix

  • Generic instructions to resolve this can leave the stream in an
    unstable state.
    Raise a PMR for assistance.
