Error description

  • Performing a checkout using a dynamic view in IBM Rational
    ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) with a configuration
    specification (config spec) which selects a version other than
    LATEST on the branch results in a checkout of LATEST on that
    branch.
    
    A setting exists to allow web views to checkout the view
    selected version (Window ? Preferences ? IBM Rational ClearTeam
    Explorer ? Dialogs ? Checkout ? 'Checkout the version that is
    loaded even if it is not the latest'.  This setting does not
    change the behavior of dynamic views.
    
    Workaround:
    Use ClearCase Explorer to perform the checkout rather than CTE
