    ****************************************************************
    The problem reported is that ls -al is not returning proper
    information when accessing a directory using a view extended
    name.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The customer is trying to access files in a non-ClearCase
    directory using view-extended names.  This use case is not
    supported in ClearCase on Linux because of limitations in
    the internal Linux kernel interfaces.
    

Temporary fix
