Error description

  • When running an IBM Rational ClearCase server on Microsoft
    Windows 2008 or 2008 R2, a sporadic port allocation failure may
    occur.
    Albd Error:  Unable to allocate port in specified range: 49152,
    65535
    Albd Error: bind: 0
    
    The issue appears to be caused by another application holding
    the desired port open as a shared port but running as a separate
    user. This response to this condition appears to be specific to
    the newer releases of Windows.
