Create a project VOB

A Project VOB is a VOB which contains the information necessary for using Unified Change Management. You may use base ClearCase instead with UD6/CMtool Driver and Uniface, however it is not described here.

Create a Windows NT directory share

Log on to the VOB host and create, and then share (standard Windows NT share) a directory called pvob. In our example we have used c:\pvob, with a share name of \\ntwkst01\pvob.

Creating a Versioned Object Base

Follow the instructions in the Rational ClearCase Administration Manual (10.3) for creating a VOB. A general overview is given here.

Choose a VOB-tag, we used the name '\pvob'.

Create the VOB, using cleartool or a GUI tool like Clear Case Home Base, eg:

Press Create VOB

Enter these details:

Name: PVOB

Create VOB as UCM component: No

Description Unified Change Management database

This VOB will also store: UCM Project Data (Yes)

Press Next.

Select a storage location (the default was used in our example).

Set the Administrative VOB to --- none ---, then press Finish.

Created versioned object base.

Host-local path: ntwkst01:C:\ClearCase_Storage\VOBs\PVOB.vbs

Global path: \\ntwkst01\ccstg_c\VOBs\PVOB.vbs

VOB ownership:

owner MHELVINA\abarrett

group MHELVINA\Domain Users

VOBs have special data backup considerations. For more information on how to

back up your VOB properly, see the documentation for administering ClearCase.

If the backups aren't done properly, you are putting your data at risk!
