ClearCase Support: Manipulating Config Specs


Ever wonder how to see, save, and edit your Config Spec in ClearCase?

To see or display the Config Spec for the current View, use this command:

cleartool catcs

To edit the Config Spec for the current View, use this command:

cleartool edcs

To save or backup the Config Spec for the current View to a file, use this command:

cleartool catcs > filename.txt

To set the Config Spec for the current View from a file (this will delete your current config spec settings, so please make a backup first), use this command:

cleartool setcs filename.txt

To set the Config Spec for the current View to the default setting (this will delete your current Config Spec settings, so please make a backup first), use this command:

cleartool setcs -default

Finally, to refresh or synchronize your View with all servers without changing your Config Spec, use this command:

cleartool setcs -current

For understanding the rules in a Config Spec, please read this guide.
