  1. The issue has been identified as a product defect under APAR PM08209 (applies only if seen on a Solaris 10 x86 CM Server with version 7.1.1 installed).

  2. The issue has also been seen to occur when permissions on the ClearCase_check directory of the ClearCase server are too restrictive.

Resolving The Problem

For Cause 1

Defect APAR PM08209 has been resolved in ClearCase

For Cause 2

Change the permissions on the ClearCase_Check directory to provide the ability of all users who will need a ClearCase license to be able to create a file in this directory.

Also, refer to technote 1431848 Displaying VOB list is very slow when licensing caching directory permissions are too restrictive.
