Error description

  • When run in an IBM Rational ClearCase Snapshot view, clearaudit
    reports "unable to contact view server on host" messages. It
    then exits without running the specified command/script.
    According to the clearaudit documentation, the clearaudit should
    execute, though it cannot audit builds executed outside of a
    dynamic view.
    

Local fix

  • Run clearaudit in a dynamic view or remove clearaudit from
    scripts that need to execute in snapshot views.
