Error description

  • If the ODMDIR environment variable is not set when ClearCase is
    stopped, the MVFS specdev will not unload
    
    
    AIX (All)
    
    
    ClearCase 7.x
    
    
    
    The Problem:
    
       Users of sudo may not have the ODMDIR environment variable
    set.  As a consequence, the MVFS specdev will not unload when
    ClearCase is stopped.  At this point, the system has to be
    rebooted to clear the problem.
    
    
    Workaround:  Use root to stop ClearCase or ?sudo su - root? to
    inherit the ODMDIR environment variable
