Remove view references from ClearCase Administration Console

Question & Answer


How can you remove view references from the IBM® Rational® ClearCase® Administration Console without needing to run cleartool rmview -uuid from the command line for each VOB?


Here is how to remove view references from within the ClearCase Administration Console.

Note: This works the same as an cleartool rmview -uuid from the command line as detailed in technote 1122515. However, there is no option like -avobs to remove references from all VOBs in the GUI.

  1. Traverse the Start Menu to IBM Rational ClearCase> Administration> Administration Console or select Start > Run and type ccadminconsole.msc

  2. Navigate to the machine that has the VOBs stored on it (either through My Host or ClearCase Network)

    Note: You must access the host that has the views stored on it, if that is not the local host, then you must use ClearCase Network to access the host.

  3. Expand the listing for the machine, then expand the VOBs listing

  4. Under each VOB there is a listing for Referenced Views, Click this option. In the right hand side all the views that have checkouts to the VOB will be listed

  5. If the bad view is listed, right-click the view and choose All Tasks > Remove View References

  6. A warning dialogue will pop-up, click Yes

  7. The view reference has now been removed from that particular VOB.

Note: Remember to go through the remaining VOBs and remove any other checkout references for this view in the same manner.
