Error description

  • When you checkout files in the IBM Rational ClearCase Explorer
    or Microsoft Windows Explorer GUI
    and set the checkout options to:
      [X] Reserved
           [ ] Unreserved if already reserved
           [X] Unreserved, nonmastered if the branch is mastered by
    another replica
    
    You expect a Reserved checkout if the branch is locally
    mastered. However, the checkout is always Unreserved regardless
    of branch mastership.
    
    
    Workaround:
    1. Set just 'Reserved' as the default option for checkout.
        Set 'Unreserved, nonmastered if the branch is mastered by
    another replica' if the first attempt to checkout fails.
    OR
    2. If a Reserved checkout is really needed, right click on the
    checkedout file ? Properties of Version
        Check the 'Reserved' checkbox.

    Fixes a ClearCase problem where a reserved checkout
    operation on a locally mastered branch invoked via ClearCase
    Explorer or Windows Explorer, was resulting in an unreserved
    nonmastered checkout, when both the options were set.
