configuration management Questions

Hello,

Our VOB is of size size 52GB, 10years old, mounted on Solaris OS and using by 400 Users. From the past One Year, we observed that VOB elements are keep on corrupting with "^D" or "text_file_delta" error. We are unable to do diff with predecessor version, not able to make Builds because of corrupted files. Even we are unable to count Source Lines of Code also. I forgot to mention that, we are using ClearCase ver.6.0.

Last 8 months back, we raised a PMR, IBM resolved some file elements using "checkvob" and by remotely accessing they used some IBM scripts to solve the issue. Finally, by the end of March. We and IBM Technical Support Engineers resolved all corrupted file elements issue. Recently, we observed that 2 (two) of the files got corrupted again and VOB is not in Sync with two of our replicas. Problem started again.

Please let me know, why VOB file elements corrupts often? Is it because of, if any user uses some third party tools for his Coding/Development in VOB? We CMs follow strict polocies, some of the file elements are not even loading into VOB (Snapshot views), saying "size got exceeded". This became a big mess for us. Now, Developers are making Builds by hijacking the files. We know that, this is not a Good Practise. Please someone of you can help us in this regard. PFA, VOB Errors. Thanks in advance!

Hello Friends,

Please let me know, what exactly is a "Virtual VOB" in ClearCase. How to make it? implement the polocies? Do we require any seperate SW like VMVare to create a Virtual VOB? I am working in a Telecom Based Company and we are about to get a new Project, there our Project Manager requirement is to create a "Virtual VOB" using ClearCase. We will go in details in next month. Before that, I want to know what it is, why it is used for, how to create it. Thanks for all your answers for my Query.

Best Regards/Sebastian.

 

During file checkout from Clearcase i want the CQ to list the CQ ID specific to the  user .

For this i am tring to modify config.plbut it is listing all the bugs but not the one specific to the suer .

i used the below configuration .

$s = &DefineCQSchema(NAME=>"MainSchema",

                         ENTITY_LIST => "EnhancementRequest",

                         RESTRICTIONS => "STANDARD");

 

      $s->ChangeFieldMap(OWNER => "Owner",STATE => "State",

                       ID => "id",  #Note: ID shouldn't need to change

                       HEADLINE => "Headline",

                       PRIORITY => "Priority", 

     #########         SEVERITY => "Severity",

                       RATL_MASTERSHIP => "ratl_mastership",

 

                       # Other mappable names

                       QUERY_STATES => "Submitted,Assigned,Opened",

                       MODIFY => "modify"

                       );

 

    $s->SetQuery("STANDARD",

                 "<STATE> in <QUERY_STATES>",

                 "<OWNER> eq <*USER*>");

    $s->SetResultSet("STANDARD",

                     "<ID>,<STATE>,<PRIORITY>,<HEADLINE>",

                     "%s %-9.9s %1.1s %1.1s %-45.45s");

 Please let me know where i am going wrong

Hello,

When I am trying to checkout any file from my View(dynamic),  then machine restarts (windows reboots).

This is really irritating me.

The view storage directory is stored on the local machine. These views were in use for more than a year or so.

ClearCase installed on it.

Details:

ClearCase 7.0.1.0

Microsoft XP SP3

Symantec AntiVirus 11.0.6200.754

 

Thanks in advance,

 

BR,

How can I undo a delivery in ClearCase UCM after the delivery is complete?

By Terrica Neal - April 16, 20132 Answers

Hi,

Are there any open source tools that we can use for a small, agile team to track change requests for documentation and baseline item changes?  We don't need it to manage software, just documentation and any other baseline item changes. 

Thanks in advance,

Terrica

Hi All

I am migrating VOBs from a v7 ClearCase server to a newly installed v8 server. There are many old views in the old v7 server we don't want to use (people left etc). After I copy the VOB storages over, re-register, what will happen to the views if I don't copy the view storages over? We want developers can re-create new views, may use the old names.

My concern is if we don't remove all views from the old v7 server before migration, will there be any view information stored inside the VOBs? Our v7 and v8 are totally separate servers (registry, license, VOB, etc). There should be no view information registered in the new v8 at all. So the question is: for a view, beside the registry, is there any reference inside a VOB?

Thanks

Hello Experts,

  Wanted to understand a situtation: My developers checkins code (majorly) into any bug they feel like & mention bug number which they have fixed in CR. I want to bring in  strict process of checkin code in bug which they want to send in CR. Is this something unexpected i am asking  or difficult or become bottleneck to my developers? Any best practices shared?

Below is my scenrios-

Case 1 - CR has 1 master bug  having 5 child bugs, Commited code in some other X bug which is no where linked in these bugs.

Case 2- CR has 1 master bug having 5 child bugs, sending only 3 child bugs  at last minute call but need to send half commited files in  other 4th Child bug.

Usually we create CR once coding is done & needs to send for Testing but bug is created beforehand. CR is majorly become for  documentation /release tracking.

 

 

 

We have an ongoing disagreement going on here about how do we identify CI's and their relationship to the Indentured product list.
