BitLocker support with ClearCase on Windows

Preventive Service Planning


Is BitLocker supported for use with IBM Rational ClearCase on Microsoft Windows?


Support for BitLocker on Windows 7 was added in ClearCase 7.1.2.

BitLocker is a data encryption feature that is currently available on Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 2008, Windows 7 and later.

Bitlocker needs to be suspended before installing ClearCase on Windows 7. BitLocker thinks the MVFS is an intrusion and locks the hard drive. After ClearCase is installed, BitLocker can be resumed..
