Error description

  • ClearCase VOBs fail to mount with ?Error: An error occurred
    mounting? within the mntrpc_server_log
    
    
    
    ClearCase 7.1.2.5, 8.0 GA, 8.0.0.1
    
    Multiple UNIX Hosts
    
    
    
    To Reproduce:
    
    1)  Upgrade a ClearCase host to 7.1.2.5, 8.0 GA or 8.0.0.1
           NOTE:  The host prior to the upgrade mounted all private
    and public VOBs correctly
    
    2)  Try and mount all VOBs after the upgrade with a ?cleartool
    mount -all?
    
    3)  The following error is seen within the mntrpc_server_log:
    
           An error occurred mounting ?VOB tag?
    
    On a second attempt to mount all of the VOBs, the error changes:
    
           mount: permission denied
    
    
    Workaround:  None
