Error description

  • IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) aggregated checkout
    when passing a wildcard (such as: *.txt) will not differentiate
    between the source or target of a symlink, and will error with:
    
    CRVAP0087E CCRC command 'checkout' failed: Version discordance
    detected for 'C:\ccweb\user\view_tage\VOB\Directory\link.txt'.
    
    when the user allows both to be passed to the checkout. Upon
    closing the above error dialog the user will see the above path
    as discordant (Discordant,Loaded) in a checkout state (later
    clearcase searches on checked out object lists it, yet of course
    it is a symlink)
    
    The only way to correct the behavior is to check in the source
    of the symlink, no refresh or discordance correction appears to
    correct the behavior.
