clearcase: root user cannot do chview or endview or reformatview

+2 votes

Gets a "Permission Denied" error. Ideally root should have all permissions, should it not?

It might be a good to start with the basics:

  • Where is the view hosted?
  • Where is the view stored?
  • Can the view owner reformat the view? Run chview?
  • Where are you attempting to run endview/reformatview? And with what options?

In some cases, particularly when you are running the commands from a host that is not the view server, root may be blocked from certain operations if remote administration has been disabled.

We are trying to migrate views from Solaris to Unix. So we are doing a "reformat -dump" on the Solaris end and then a "reformat -load" on the Linux end.

All's going well EXCEPT - any "." view-private files (hidden files) are not coming over. Any ideas how I can make sure that these files are brought over as well?
