Error description

  • When building in an IBM Rational ClearCase 7.1.2.x local dynamic
    view on Microsoft Windows 2008 R2, the build may hang.
    
    WORKAROUND: You need to change the ordered list of Network
    Providers so the MVFS will be at the end of the order.
    For example, your new Network Provider Order would be:
    Microsoft Windows Network, Microsoft Terminal Services,
    ClearCase Dynamic Views.
    
    This change requires a reboot.
    
    Note that you may see some performance issues in ClearCase
    operations after making this change.
