Error description

  • When using IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0 to describe a Unified
    Change Management (UCM) activity with a large change set (more
    than approximately 8,000 versions), the cleartool command may
    terminate abnormally with a 'segmentation fault' message on
    Linux, or a 'the program has stopped working' message on
    Microsoft Windows.
    
    To work around this issue, the activity can be described using a
    ClearCase 7.1.2 host, or you can use 'cleartool describe -ahlink
    Change ...' to extract the activity changeset.
