Error description

  • The setgroup-swap utility allows IBM Rational ClearCase users on
    UNIX or Linux who are a member of more than 16 groups to use
    ClearCase commands. The utility is documented in technote
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21207807. In
    ClearCase versions 7.1.1.7, 7.1.2.4 and 8.0.0.x a defect was
    introduced that causes a stat() call to fail unless
    setgroup-swap is called either from the directory where it
    resides or with the full path to the utility.
    
    vobadm@SUSE1164B:/? which setgroup-swap
    /opt/rational/clearcase/etc/utils/setgroup-swap
    vobadm@SUSE1164B:/? setgroup-swap
    usage: setgroup-swap ?program-to-run? (set CLEARCASE_GROUPS EV
    to reorganize   groups and CLEARCASE_PRIMARY_GROUP to change the
    primary group   of the user)
    vobadm@SUSE1164B:/? setgroup-swap cleartool lsview
    Error with stat() call on file setgroup-swap
    vobadm@SUSE1164B:/?
    /opt/rational/clearcase/etc/utils/setgroup-swap cleartool lsview
      adm1                 /net/SUSE1164B/viewstore/vobadm/adm1.vws
    
    
    Steps to reproduce: Run setgroup-swap ?cleartool cmd? on an
    affected ClearCase release from a directory where the utility
    does not reside.
    
    Workaround: Invoke setgroup-swap with the full path. For
    example, '/opt/rational/clearcase/etc/utils/setgroup-swap
    ?cleartool command?'.
