26490clearcase eclipsed files are lost
- Feb 28, 2002Hello,
i am working in a development enviroment und hp-ux and clearcase.
In special cases a file in clearcase has to be made to view private and afterwards
this file is eclipsed (in do not exactly know what this means in terms of a file
But a ls -l show that all is ok for editing and writing the file
> ls -l Imakefile-rw-rw-r-- 1 stransky ms_e 1735 Mar 1 08:09 Imakefile
Editing this file with /usr/bin/vi (not a vi clone) work fine.
Editing this file with vim (6.0), this "eclipsed" file is lost !
An attempt to write the file, returns the message:
"Imakefile" E166: Can't open linked file for writing
The same for opening and closing. The file is lost / removed and afterwards
the clearcase element as specified in the config spec is seen.
> ls -l Imakefile-r--r--r-- 1 cc-admin ms_e 1728 Apr 25 2001 Imakefile
> ct ls ImakefileImakefile@@/main/17 Rule: /main/LATEST
It seems that vim remove/moves the file (for backup or swapfile ?) , what is not
permitted in this case. Removing or moving the file will reappear the real clearcase
element in the clearcase file system as the selected version readonly !
Is there a possibility to avoid such behaviour ?
