Error description

  • When performing a distributed or parallel build using IBM
    Rational ClearCase's clearmake utility, the build may fail with
    messages similar to the following if the connection with the
    automated build executor (abe) process is broken or the data is
    somehow corrupted in transit:
    
    clearmake: Error: Error reading from socket NN attempting to
    read 4000 bytes. (131)Connection reset by peer
    ...
    clearmake: Warning: Latent abe @ socket NN will be shut down.
    clearmake: Error: Error skipping to end-of-record on stream.
    ...
    clearmake: Error: PFM_ASSERT:(IS_VALID_ABE_ID (aid)) failed:
    '/vobs/atria/bin/mmake/bldsvc.c':527
    
    The assertion failure is caused by inconsistencies in validating
    abe child ID's.
