APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the Rational ClearCase doucmentation, you are led to believe
    that the maximum MVFS scaling factor is 24.  This is correct for
    Unix/Linux.
    
    In Windows, the maximum scaling factor is 5.  If you set it
    higher than 5, you receive messages  in the MVFS logs stating:
    mvfs(0): INFO: {4 pid/tid 4/50} MVFS: Lowering largeinit setting
    from 8 to maximum allowable of 5
    
    If you are scripting your installs with the incorrect values,
    this will impact all of your machines.
