    ****************************************************************
    Performing a mkelem command from the IBM Rational ClearCase
    Remote Client (CCRC) command line interface (CLI) needs to
    update new elements parent directory to reflect checkout.
    
    
    When executing the 'mkelem' command using the CCRC CLI, the
    following actions are performed:
    
    1.  New elements parent directory is checked out
    2.  New element is created
    3.  New element is checked in
    
    The 'mkelem' command leaves the parent directory checked out
    - as one would expect.
    
    However, an attempt to checkin the parent directory of the
    new element fails because the local workspace does not get
    updated with the checkout information.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Perform a view update on the parent directory of the new
    element and then the checkin of the directory will be
    successful.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this problem is available for ClearCase 7.1.1.8,
    7.1.2.5 and 8.0.0.1
