configuration management Questions

I am using the below config spec which will checkout all the elements from the Label LB_REL_1:

element * CHECKEDOUT
element * .../br_rel_1/LATEST
element * LB_REL_1 -mkbranch br_rel_1

But the problem is I am Not able to Add a new element to source control, I am getting error which says No such Label or Branch exists. Then I tried using the below config spec:

element * CHECKEDOUT
element * .../br_rel_1/LATEST
element * LB_REL_1 -mkbranch br_rel_1
element * /main/LATEST

But this config spec has checkedout all the elements from the VOB even those without the Label LB_REL_1.

Can you please tell me what config spec I should use so that ONLY those elements with Label LB_REL_1 are checkedout AND also I should be able to create NEW elements and Add them to source control.

It would be great help if you can help me.
Thanks in advance

The cli connection(java client) was established in a client machine (Solaris box), but when we invoked the ccm stop command it became unresponsive for hours until we have no choice but to execute ccmdb shutdown.

thanks in advance!

What would be the Pros and Cons of using CA SCM in this way ?

Is there a better alternative that using CA SCM as a Definitive Software Library ?

Looking for guidance. All information would be appreciated on this topic.


We're going to have to move our VOBs from one location on our server to another larger filesystem on the same computer. (in Linux, though there is a Windows box used for ease of administration)

Will we need to re-register or otherwise mess with our views to point to the right place, or will it be able to 'follow' the move, since it's only on the same computer?

My understanding of the operation is this:

1. Everyone checks everything in
2. Lock VOBs
3. Back Up VOBs
4. Unregister VOBs
5. Copy VOBs to new area, preserving permissions
6. Reregister VOBs
7. Unlock VOBs
8. Test

I shouldn't need to rmtag, or run fixprot or do a SIDwalk, right?

It's the same registry region, the same domain, the same server, just a different under-the-hood filesystem location on the server.

Problem is ccm users opens a text file.

I would like to either save this file somewhere or save its content.

I need to move my current svn repo to a new domain/server.

When I looked through the documentation, 'svnadmin dump' and 'svnadmin load' will do the job for moving a repo to a new server. My question here is what else I need to do/consider when moving to a new "domain".

The current repo is enabled with ldap and needs to work the same fashion after the migration. Any help would much appreciated. Thanks,

I have been trying to find out if there is a specific order of installation of ClearCase and ClearQuest versions 7.1.2 but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any hard evidence of ClearCase needing to be installed first, before ClearQuest? This would be on Windows and Unix, if that matters.

NB - NOT Configuration of Genesys but recording and controlling the configuration of it?

We are currently using ClearCase UCM for our source control tool and I have been given a simple request that I am having trouble with.

I need to create a weekly report that will include a list of all files that have changed in a particular stream since a defined date. I have been able to produce such a report in other source control tools such as Perforce or MKS Source Integrity quite easily. ClearCase has given me a headache with this request.

I don't want duplicates if there are multiple check-ins nor do I want the files broken down by activity.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Does subversion merges the .vi files from one branch to another branch ?

any information is highly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
