You need to remove view referenced from each Vobs.

Steps is as follows:

  1. cleartool lsview -long Now you get the uuid.
  2. Then search that uuid to Vob using following command:
    cleartool describe -l vob:
  3. ct rmview -uuid -avobs

Now verify that all referenced has been removed from these Vobs.

Now you can remove that view as well using following command:

cleartool rmview -force -uuid (uuid_of_the_view)
