Error description

  • In IBM Rational ClearCase 7.1.2.0, a product defect (APAR
    PK95364) was addressed to allow upgrade of ClearCase in Oracle
    Solaris Global Zone without having to uninstall ClearCase from
    all Non-Global Zones prior to the upgrade. You may see a
    regression of this defect when attempting to upgrade to
    ClearCase 7.1.2.7 in the Global Zone. The following error will
    be seen:
    
    ClearCase MVFS must be uninstalled from every Non-Global Zone if
    it is uninstalled from the Global Zone
    
    Workaround:
    
    The only known workaround at this time is to uninstall ClearCase
    from all Non-Global Zones prior to upgrading ClearCase in the
    Global Zone. ClearCase may then be reinstalled at the new
    version in each Non-Global Zone.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Non-global zone installations of ClearCase with MVFS installed
    prevent global zone from being upgraded
    
    
    ClearCase 7.1.2.x, 8.0.0.x
    
    Solaris 10
    
    
    To Reproduce, all on the same Solaris 10 system:
    
    1)  Install ClearCase 7.1.2 Full Installation on the global zone
    
    2)  Install ClearCase 7.1.2 Full Installation on the non-global
    zone
    
    3)  Stop ClearCase on the non-global zone
    
    4)  From the global zone, now attempt to upgrade to 7.1.2.8:
    The following error will be seen:
    
    ClearCase MVFS must be uninstalled from every Non-Global Zone if
    it is uninstalled from the Global Zone
    
    Workaround:  Uninstall ClearCase from every non-global zone
    before upgrading the global zone.  Once the global zone is
    upgraded, you may reinstall ClearCase on the non-global zones.
    This is documented in technote
