Error description

  • When removing a dynamic view in IBM Rational ClearCase version
    9.0.0.2 on IBM AIX with the storage mounted over NFSv4 there is
    always a delay in completion of 30 seconds. The delay is for
    waiting for the ".pid" file to be removed. A truss of the
    command shows the command looping while waiting for the .pid
    file to be removed the following calls are seen for the same
    time as the delay:
    
    
    statx("<GLOBAL VIEW PATH>/.pid", 0x2FF1DC00, 128, 011) = 0
     _nsleep(0x2FF1DC00, 0x2FF1DC78) = 0
    statx("<GLOBAL VIEW PATH>/.pid", 0x2FF1DC00, 128, 011) = 0
     _nsleep(0x2FF1DC00, 0x2FF1DC78) = 0
    
    WORKAROUND:
    Remove the view using the local path
