Error description

  • When you are trying to create a Rational ClearCase automatic
    view, you may receive the following error when you have an
    umlaut in your password:
    
    Status code: 20021; status message: <?xml version="1.0"
    encoding="UTF-8"?><MkView
    version="1"><view-uuid>uuid</view-uuid><server-tag>view_tag</ser
    ver-tag><text-mode>transparent</text-mode><view-type>base</view-
    type><cltxt-cache-dir>C:\Users\name\.ccase_automatic_cltxt_stg</
    cltxt-cache-dir><preserve-vob-modified-time>false</preserve-vob-
    modified-time><server
    online="true"><server-url>http://x.x.x.x:16080</server-url><user
    name>name</username><password>password</password></server></MkVi
    ew>
    
    To workaround the issue, remove the umlaut from the password.
