    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Clearcase needs to use UNC paths for the view storage directory, if you don't use it, you get the following error.

      2010-02-19 23:58:55,149 WARN  [InitialPinger1] fisheye.app com.atlassian.fisheye.clearcase.ClearCaseContext-handleProcessError - 
      Error executing command (cleartool mkview -snapshot -tag fisheye -vws d:\path\toviews\fisheye.vws d:\path\toviews\fisheye.vws ) : 
      Non-zero exit code: 1 cleartool: Error: storage directory must be in UNC style (e.g. \\host\share\...)
      • http://www.ipnom.com/ClearCase-Commands/mkview.html

        -vws
        Specifies the location for the snapshot view storage directory. On Windows systems, this must be a UNC name.
        For information on using this option to create snapshot views for disconnected use, see the section, "Disconnected Use of Snapshot Views".
        We recommend that you use -stgloc rather than this option whenever possible.

      We should probably validate the input better.
