    Addresses an issue reported in IBM Rational ClearCase, in
    the Solaris 8 Branded Zones environment, where setview
    operation on a freshly created dynamic view fails with the
    error "cleartool: Error: Couldn't set view tag ?view tag?:
    unknown error in MVFS file system". The root cause of this
    error has not been clearly determined and a transient error
    in the reported environment is suspected. This diagnostic
    fix introduces additional debug logging to aid the
    investigation if the problem is encountered again.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 7.1.2.7 and 8.0.0.3
    

Temporary fix
