Update/Modify Installation

To update or modify launch the Installation Manager


Rebuild the MVFS without reinstalling Rational ClearCase

Run the command:

 cd /var/adm/rational/clearcase/mvfs/mvfs_src

Clean up the results of previous builds:

 make clean

Build the MVFS modules:


You will be prompted for the path to the Linux kernel source directory. The default prompt is /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build.

Install the newly built MVFS modules into the proper directory under /lib/modules, so that the MVFS modules will be loaded into the kernel when Rational ClearCase starts:

 make install

Restart Rational ClearCase.

 /opt/rational/clearcase/etc/clearcase stop
 /opt/rational/clearcase/etc/clearcase start

After the installation process has completed, test that Rational ClearCase has been properly installed by running the cleartool -version command. You should see output indicating the version of MVFS that has been installed, as in the following example.

 /opt/rational/clearcase/bin/cleartool -version
