Error description

  • IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.x WAN Server includes a region
    mapping feature that allows the ClearCase Remote Client user
    population to be broken down into subgroups each assigned to a
    particular region of the ClearCase registry. The location of the
    region map file is set in a configuration file located at
    ?clearcase install directory?/config/ccrc/server.conf like so:
    
    ccrcUserRegionMapFile = /path/to/region.map
    
    However when the same server.conf file also sets the
    configuration explicitly for the
    ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath variable, the WAN server will
    be unable to locate the region map even though the path is set
    correctly. For example, the following has been observed to cause
    this problem:
    
    ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath = false
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Set the ccrcUserRegionMapFile to a valid region map file in
    the server.conf
    2. Also specify the ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath variable
    explicitly in the server.conf
    3. Restart the WAN server as a user that should be subject to
    the region map
    
    Workaround:
    Do not explicitly set the ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath
    variable in the server.conf.

    ****************************************************************
    When both ccrcUseViewHostPathForGlobalPath and
    ccrcUserRegionMapFile are explicitly specified in the
    server.conf configuration file of the IBM Rational ClearCase
    8.0.x WAN Server, the WAN server is unable to locate the
    region map even though the path is set correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in ClearCase 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2.
