Error description

  • "No group list for uid" error messages fill the IBM Rational
    ClearCase version 9.0.0.4 view log if either of the following
    conditions are met and server-side group substitution is
    configured:
    1. the userid of an active view is non-existent
    2. if the view is removed while their are clients with an active
    process for the view.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    * Fix_prot the view to a new owner  (so any new starts of the
    view are with a valid owner)
    AND
    * Kill the view server process   (so a new one will be started)

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When ClearCase server-side group substitution is enabled,    *
    * and a user whose UID is not mappable to a username and set   *
    * of groups attempts to access a view, the view_server emits   *
    * many log messages about the unmapped user such as            *
    * "No group list for uid 12345"                                *
