Error description

  • After uninstalling IBM Rational ClearCase version 8.0.1.x and
    installing version 9.0.1.1 64 bit, "cleartool checkout" is
    getting errors similar to:
    cleartool: Error: Error from VOB database: "<VOB>.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to fetch triggers.
    cleartool: Error: Unable to check out "<ELEM>".
    
    Also attempts to dump the VOB database gives the following
    errors:
    CRRDM0404E *** db_VISTA database error -6 - invalid db_address
    db_dumper: Error: DBMS error in "/vobs/atria/lib/db/db__str.c"
    line 809
    db_dumper: Error: DBMS error in
    /ccstore/vobs/acltrobs.vbs/db.reformat.

    "/vobs/atria/lib/db/db__dump.c" line 5144
    db_dumper: Error: Error from libdb (1)
    cleartool: Error: Could not dump database.
    cleartool: Error: Trouble dumping versioned object base "VOB".
    
    This issue only occurs in VOB's with triggers on Linux hosts.
    For more information see:

    WORKAROUND:
    1. Dump the VOB database prior to uninstalling ClearCase
    8.0.1.15
    2. load the VOB database after installing ClearCase 9.0.1.1
