Error description

  • When you are running cleartool findmerge -avobs -nc " -fver
    .../ChildBranch/LATEST -merge -abort, you may find that the
    findmerge does not work for more than a single vob.
    
    
    If merging elements in /vobs/VOB2, after elements in /vobs/VOB1
    have been merged, the following error will prevent the elements
    in /vobs/VOB2 from merging:
    
    cleartool: Error: Database identifier (dbid) not found in
    database: "/vobs/VOB1".
    cleartool: Error: Some Change Management integration actions
    have failed.
    Please refer to the CMI log file for details.
    
    Although the error refers to /vobs/VOB1, the elements in
    /vobs/VOB1 will be merged.  However, the error will prevent the
    elements in /vobs/VOB2 from being merged.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    In order to workaround the issue, you can do one of the
    following:
    1. Re-run findmerge
    2. Run findmerge against one VOB at at a time.
