    m) should be corrected regarding following points :
    
    - VOBs (and optionally views). this is wrong unless you are plan
    ning to recreate the views
    
    - ccase-home-dir/config/* : Save all directories.
    They contain Rational ClearCase Remote Client configuration file
    s;
    MultiSite shipping parameters, database configuration and more.
    
    This is not enough : Some important files are located in ccase-h
    ome-dir/ccweb
    
    - ccase-home-dir/services/albd.conf
    
    This file does not exist in this location on RHEL5, it's in ccas
    e-home-dir/config/
    
    - Variable ccrcViewStorage does not only contain temporary data.
