ClearCase Support: Finding ClearCase Log and Cache Files


Ever try to execute a ClearCase command, but it returned an error message saying that more information is in the log files? And ClearCase only gives you the name of the log file, but not the location of the log file? Yes, well you are just like everyone else. Try these locations for ClearCase log files and cache files.

In UNIX, the default locations are:

/appls/clearcase/log
/appls/clearcase/cache
/var/adm/atria/log
/usr/adm/atria/log

In Windows, you will have to run this program:


Start -> Programs -> Rational Software -> Rational ClearCase -> Administration -> Log Browser

Alternatively, you can see the log files of any computer from any computer using this command, assuming you have permissions to do so:

cleartool getlog -graphical –host MACHINE_NAME
