Error description

  • Creating a baseline with "-clone" in a stream in a UCM Project
    with VOB database schema 80, may fail with a "segmentation
    fault" (core dumped)
    
    Where it does succeed, in a Multisite replicated Project VOB,
    "multitool syncreplica -import" replay of the same operation at
    sibling replicas
    may fail with a "segmentation fault"
    
    In this case the next oplog to be imported shall match the
    following:
    op= mkbaseline
    ...
    enter_at_index= <positive integer>
    num_reorder_ents= <positive integer>
    reorder_ents_p= <positive integer>
    reorder_ents_p= <positive integer>
    ...
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    In a schema 80 UCM project VOB do
    
    cleartool mkbl -clone ...
    
       Note: This may or may not fail.
             More specific conditions for failure are not known.
    

Local fix

  • For "cleartool mkbl -clone",  retry of the operation may
    succeed.
    
    For "multitool syncreplica -import", retry of the operation may
    succeed.
        If it doesn't, replica replacement of the import site maybe
    required.
