Error description

  • ClearCase Remote Client users that perform a deliver in which
    the contents of the development stream has had a rename
    operation performed(for example on a directory) observe the
    following error (s):
    
    Unable to automerge directory \ComponentVOB\directory\?source of
    renamed directory?
    
    which will also have a dialog displayed :
    
    # versions merged successfully
    1 versions still require merging
    # versions currently checked out to view:(Integration View tag)
    
    You must finish the manual merges before you can complete the
    deliver.
    Do you want to start these merges now ?
    
    Clicking 'Yes' would display the error
    
    An error occurred while merging '?source of renamed directory?'
    Error:'Objects being compared or merged must be versions of the
    same element'
    
    Workaround:
    =============
    
    If the user clicks 'ok' then restarts the deliver
    operation(taking resume as the choice to proceed) The deliver
    will complete as expected.
    
    ** Please Note:
    This behavior is present regardless if the user has a loaded or
    unloaded integration view, or if the user has set the preference
    to unload the integration
    view load rules before deliver.
