Error description

  • When upgrading IBM Rational ClearCase from any 7.1.2.x version
    to 7.1.2.5, the 'exports.mvfs' file is overwritten with a
    default one and does not keep the one that was modified
    previously.
    
    
    Step to reproduce:
    Upgrade ClearCase on Red Hat 4 or 5 normally.
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    Before the upgrade process, save the modified 'exports.mvfs'
    file, then run the upgrade and replace the default
    'exports.mvfs' after the upgrade completes with the backup of
    the modified copy.
