ClearCase Support: How to Mount and Unmount a VOB


Here is this simple command mount a single VOB (/vob/tools) on UNIX.

cleartool mount /vob/tools

Alternatively, this is how to mount the same VOB (\tools) on Windows.

cleartool mount \tools

If you want the VOB to stay mounted even after rebooting the computer, then use the same commands but with this extra argument.


cleartool mount -persistent /vob/tools
cleartool mount -persistent \tools

To mount all VOBs, then use this command.

cleartool mount -all

Finally, to unmount a VOB, use this command.

cleartool umount /vob/tools
cleartool umount \tools
