Error description

  • When performing a build using IBM Rational ClearCase's
    "clearmake" tool in an automatic view, clearmake will attempt to
    determine if existing target files in the view are derived
    objects. If the ClearCase client host performing the build can
    not find the VOBs used in the build via registry lookups, builds
    will fail on views that have been used twice. Errors may
    include:
    
    clearmake: Error: Unable to get VOB object registry information
    for replica uuid "8430b572.260911d1.a68f.00:01:80:86:10:b9":
    ClearCase object not found
    clearmake: Error: Unable to get VOB information for target
    candidate "envtest1" - ClearCase object not found
    
    or
    
    clearmake.exe: Error: Error from VOB database: ""/tester"".
    clearmake.exe: Error: Trouble opening VOB database: ""/tester"".
